Trying to put in a big opening 1 hour bull bar after pulling back from the high yesterday afternoon. Large opening bars can be indicative of the morning session and may see a test of the high. The prospect of tomorrows NFP may weigh come the afternoon session.

FTSE retests support turned resistance and continues down to new low into close of day. Will be interesting to see where futures take it out of hours to start tomorrow. Next support level around 7300.

FTSE 100 and S&P get a good bounce off the Yellen testimony (text) released 1:30 pm, presented in person 3:00 pm.

FTSE breaking to the upside from start of month range.

USD up initially, now falling to fresh lows on decreasing expectation of Sep/Dec rate hike.

That's OK but can you actually project a target? You sound like a sports commentator who comments on the game without being able to predict the next move nor the outcome.

Of course, we all know that it won't be reasonable to demand otherwise.

Quite right ,  prediction is impossible, the only indicator of any real use would be one that warned us that a very large order was being executed, a kind of 'insider dealing' indicator.

So the next best thing to prediction is reaction, as we know price moves sideways until there is a buyer/seller imbalance when price moves to retest a level above or below. No one can watch all markets all the time so a friendly heads up that a certain market is moving or has reach a significant level some may find useful.

 

We have all seen predictors on forums and they are usually more often wrong than right and tend to do a lot of damage to the accounts of newbie followers who don't know to take it all with a pinch of salt.

 

I see FTSE 100 has broken down this morning to retest Friday's low and may go on to retest 7345.

Very well said that predictors on forums cause a lot of damage.

We are all like football fans watching a game. All excited and dissapointed at various times. At times it looks like we can identify paterns and strategy and looks like it's about to pan exactly as we expected and sometimes it does but more often it goes belly up.

The commentators are nonethewiser. They see just as much as everyone else. The difference is that that have a microphone and are paid to comment (think about the so called market analysts, lol). When was it ever that a commentator would announce from the start how many goals on each side at what time and that Team X will win the game ?

Mind you,the stock market is ever harder to predict than a football match.

 

Good luck to you!

    • 5 Best Trend Indicators That Tells You the Direction of the Trend (tradingwithrayner.com)
    • MHRA saying the benefits outweigh the risks of the experimental vaccines for children looks to be a lie. Myocarditis followed by CoViD-19 vaccines: A cause for concern or a reversible minor effect? | The BMJ The experts are saying more research is urgently needed. Children are at no real risk from Covid, mild symptoms and natural immunity thereafter if they do catch it, but but but save granny, the vulnerable have already been vaccinated. So why the push that everyone on the planet gets the jab as soon as possible? SAGE are already suggesting these vaccines don't work and are no more affective than an annual flu shot. Annual flu shots have been around for a long time, they are hit or miss in that they are based on the previous years dominant strain which may or may not be the current season's dominate strain, if not the shots won't work. So the 'booster' shots being planned are really just big pharma continually chasing after the next dominant variant. So this will go on forever. My own immune system works better than that without any experimental mRNA and DNA altering drugs.   Meanwhile the 'Fire Fauci' bill is going ahead plus a public condemnation of the Chinese development of biological weapons.    
    • You need to get hung up on them, because they happen - I know for a fact that during 2007-09 bear market you could have traded long and made money, because I did it, but the easiest route was shorting and down Get a chart WEEKLY of any forex market or commodity - go back as far as poss and notice the big turns/swings - much more volatile than the SP500 - there's a reason for that  I always say anyone who's making a packet from trading or Investing on SP500 etc go have a crack at the forex or commodity markets - the stock markets natural direction is UPWARDS - especially buy and holders, fund managers would get ripped apart on the forex + comm markets OK - Its totally Impossible to know EXACTLY what the SP500 is going to do on a daily/weekly basis, but it WAS possible to know that a) 2007-09 was going to be a bear market before 2007 even arrived and b) that the market would stop around the level it did.  But this is ultra advanced and very few people are bothered about it I've written a thread on Time Cycles on here - it covers what the SP500 is doing in terms of TIME - if you understand it and think about it, it will put you ahead of 99.99999% of traders out there, because these really big corrections and crashes do not happen out of the blue - they are predictable and forecastable with high reliability years in advance  Look at the chart below - think about what I'm saying: In 1909 WD Gann said that markets always seek their gravity centre, the half way point - that's the 50% level to you and I Traders go on about fib levels - the 50% level is clearly much more important a level  What if you KNEW 1974, 2003 and 2009 should be low points? What an opportunity both long and short! This is why I researched and spent hundreds of hours on Time and Time Cycles for - I missed 2000-2009 because I didn't know what I know now, but I know when the next ones are and I have no plans of missing them These are key once in a lifetime turn points that don't happen often So what I'm trying to point out is that on the stock market the big plunges like 07-09 aren't the norm, but they do happen with very regular intervals, that will catch a lot of people out during certain cycles that the market moves through. with regards to identifying bear markets - yes using a MA to say price below this level is bearish, but it's already bearish as it approaches the level if using price formations such as lower lows etc You don't need to know what I've discovered about time to be able to trade successfully - I was just intrigued if it was possible to be able to time the really big turns etc as I'd prefer to to know if it was
