NFP jitters in stocks?


Recommended Posts

I am short term bullish, long term bearish on stocks and in the run up to NFP tomorrow we have seen the usual whiplash jitters apparent on a market rally 100% reliant on central bank largess (some might say delusions of grandeur...) for sustainability.  Will a high number result in a rally because the economy is apparently strong or a drop because the Fed will have fewer excuses not to raise rates?  Will the reverse occur?  Who the **** knows?  FWIW (and that ain't much!) I think we will see a miss and a drop in USD on rate rises being once again put off).  This would finish off the retrace in GBP/EUR at least.

 

I have noticed some short term bearish signals and a possible market top (although I don't rate this as a high likelihood just yet, still it cannot be ignored).  Using the Dow, and you can see similar on other related markets, my Daily chart is showing a small possible head & shoulders formation with a neckline that has proved decent support so far.  The time period is not long enough for this to be a strong signal in my view but could represent a retrace signal (EWT 3-4 - see 4 Hourly chart).  For now I expect a retrace and/or rally up to the 19,000 area, which has been my target for the top for some time now with a confluence of 3 tramlines offering resistance.

 

On the 4 Hourly you can see a small scale H&S top (blue circles)around the Wave 3 (blue) top {note this is the possible wave 5 H&S top on the Daily, but I prefer this retrace set up} with a neckline that was broken yesterday and is now being retested at a down-sloping tramline point (pink line).  Should that retest fail I see a fall away to a possible retest of the Flag formation near the Fib 50% (drawn from the Wave 2 (Blue on the daily chart).  At this point the retrace would complete and a final rally to the Top would begin.  Within all this is NFP or course...

    • Sounds like you are looking at the ask price, or the mid price. I don't have access to the 10sec data at that time, but the 1 minute candle had a low at 7947.7. Ask low was 7954.7. So I guess you had a long position; in this case look at the bid price to see what is going on.
    • What really caught my eye about ChatAI is the way it aims to go beyond the limitations of traditional social media platforms. Instead of relying on text-based or voice-based interactions alone, this project is designed to support multimodal communication, allowing users to engage through a variety of formats like text, voice, and images. ChatAI is positioning itself as a revolutionary social application that combines advanced AI capabilities with the power of decentralized technology. The core idea is to open up a new era of social interaction by leveraging cutting-edge natural language processing (NLP) to enable smooth and efficient communication. But it's not just about the technical capabilities - ChatAI also seems to have a strong focus on personalization and continuous learning. The platform is built to continuously optimize its performance based on user data, adapting to individual preferences and enhancing the overall user experience over time. I was really excited to hear the news that the ChatAI (CHATAI) token is now listed on the Bitget cryptocurrency exchange. As someone who is deeply interested in the intersection of artificial intelligence, web3 technology, and social media, this listing feels like a significant milestone for the project.
    • I could remember what happened to Binance & kucoin. This might be another slap in the face of SEC but who knows, let's see how this unfolds.
