FTSE chart not looking good.  A break below 6250 could see a big drop.  This is the 4 hourly chart.  If Wall Street closes down tonight I would be watching this to move down tomorrow.  Bearish on this one at the moment.

Nice one. We broke 6250 today and, like you, I see a large downside move after a pullback from current levels (6182) to around 6370's. I'm waiting to see if that analysis proves correct before taking the plunge

 What is really frustrating is that I could see it happening but didnt put the trade on.  Actually ended up having to close a few trades today that went against me.

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 was looking to put in a big mid day reversal till got hit by an uncooperative S&P 500.

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!

Large opening 1 hour bull bar shows intent to target 7600. Dax moves in same direction trying to break out of a month long range.

FTSE remains instep with the S&P 500 resting at recent high. The 8 am opening bar could be a breakout.

    • I want to believe that, even if we had viruses for many years and we lived with them like nothing happened, this one is killing more people than it should. At least is what reports are saying. That is why countries are forcing lock-downs. Think about that a lock-down is going to extend the furlough policies all over the world again. I don't think a government want to pay that money out to citizens if they don't have to, and companies are going to have to close business for good if we have a second lock-down everywhere. I agree with the statement that we had many corona-viruses before i.e. common flu, but why now governments are taking these draconian measures to force people into a quarantine? If we had the same dangerous viruses always around why are they now locking people at their homes. Did they not care about people before? I think the virus is way more deadly than they tell us and that is why people are not really that scared of it. If we had all the information that is available to professionals we would be really scared and people would lock themselves without waiting any government to tell them. My wife is Chinese and I get their news first hand. They are not reporting what is really happening since the very beginning and it is really hard to trust the Chinese government  on anything related to this virus. They still have the problem there, they keep locking entire cities down for short periods the minute they see anything. It is not reported here in the news but every week they lock people down at their homes.  This virus is really nasty and if locking people down is going to stop it, let's do it. 
    • I agree with 99% of this - the current strain is virtually exact to a strain found in 2012 by a group of Chinese scientists, then when 6 of them died from exposure the virus was sealed and sent to Wuhan I challenged David Icke  to prove the excess deaths were'nt excess deaths, from the info I looked into I'm satisfied the virus is genuine and I'm probably one of the worlds biggest sceptics  From a lock down point of view I'd of thought the perfect place to test out compliance of mass herds would be the USA - hasn't happened strongly enough for me to be concerned but it shown those that could create such circumstances how compliment most people are.  
    • Corona virus has been with us since forever we just never mass tested before. There are no extra deaths this year than any other and it's the same unfortunate types who die of corona virus every year (over 80's with pre-existing conditions 90% of cases). Corona virus is always circulating in the population most people being completely unaware and asymptomatic, herd immunity is built and the virus mutates or dies out. Tests just show you have been exposed to the virus at some stage which could have been months ago and you were most likely asymptomatic. Vaccines don't work for corona virus because they mutate very quickly which is why there is no vaccine for the common cold (a corona virus). And why flu shots don't work very often because they are based on the previous years dominant strain not the current year's (the mass manufacturing would be too late). Covid 19 has already been mutating and the last studies I saw several weeks ago confirmed that as usual a particularly nasty strain becomes less deadly with each new mutation. Another 30,000 people will die next year from respiratory infections as it's the 5 year rolling average (covid 19 or not), weather it'll be covid 19 next year or another strain no one knows but they will keep the covid ball rolling anyway. So all in all it looks like lockdown til the end of time.
