Where will Wall Street go from here?


Recommended Posts

Here is some expert technical analysis for you to enjoy, you lucky cretins :)

Wall Street hit the magical 88.6% retracement and flopped out!  The MACD is very far above zero and is now about to cross down below the signal line!  An ominous sign indeed!  This suggests momentum is flagging!  And the price is a million light years above its 200 daily MA, so a nice little 'dump' is in order a la 'reversion to the mean'!

Against this view is the fact that we have price above 20 and 50 MAs and the fact that 20 MA crossed 50 MA.  But those candles don't portend price rises in the future!

59% of IG clients are short on this index.

Most of IG's clients lose money, but I've found that you can't just take a position opposite to them and expect to win reliably.  (This is partly because the number that IG publishes is dubious and might be incorrect, BTW.)

The fact is that most of IG's retail clients will lose money whether they go long or short.  It's worth paying attention to this number but get it from an alternative source, like DailyFX or program your own thing-a-ma-jig to pull the raw data.  😘

Wall Street did indeed break our level.  We were just too hasty to put a trade on (by going long not only once but twice).  If you zoom out on the hourly chart you see it is in a downtrend, no need for a MA.  We went long because we thought we saw a support area being respected, but forgot that you need confirmation of a new high (and especially so when price has been moving down sharply).  Also the daily candles were not strong.

looks quite directionless to me, and now roughly back at a level around which we've been oscillating for two months:

I'd say high rebound probability, the slightly lower low at this stage is not significant enough IMHO

    • Hi    when I try to buy the tickers SDIV and KBWD the platform does not allow me. This is strange as I have a broker account in France where I can easily buy these products. the MIFID retail legislation is related to CFD and margin, hence the reason must be different, can anybody help me?   Thanks
