Question: Why the same patterns on different trades?


Recommended Posts

Hi there, I was comparing which markets to trade on the 1 hour time frame, and I've noticed that the FTSE100, Germany 30 and France 40, have all been following the same pattern for the last couple of days!

Why is this? Surely they should be different because they are different markets?

Hi, all the companies listed in the major indices are international and so are linked to the fortunes of the western countries as a whole and especially to the spending power of the mighty US consumer. The S&P tends to lead though an increasing case could be made for Nasdaq and the others tend to follow.

In the Indices thread I've been using Dow as a leading indicator for the Dax for a number of years. The one out of sync has been FTSE ever since the start of the Brexit uncertainty.

Thanks for telling me that. Appreciated.

    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
    • We have to wait until Friday to find out if the UK economy skirted a recession.   Richard Snow, foreign exchange analyst at Daily FX, tells IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor that after the third quarter contraction of 0.3%, there is a risk around the incoming data for the fourth quarter. Here he discusses GBP/USD as a trade to go short. But what if GDP comes in slightly higher? Richard says that is likely to be largely academic and that he believes the short trade will prevail.
