Market direction predictions


Recommended Posts

Although I have only recently become involved with FX and Crypto trading, it is pretty apparent that only those with insider information can predict which direction the market price will probably go, IE. up, sideways or down. 

Anyone out there who has found a signal provider (free or paid for) that actually works, other than those who are following a market trading trend that is already established?

If their system was any good why would they be selling or giving it away for free, surly they would just use their system for their own trades and make a lot of money.

I wouldn't be selling a system if it worked as good as they suggest their systems  work, I would just trade with it and make the equity grow.

Comments and thoughts welcome on the above.

Hi Caseynotes,

Yes I agree, Cable was a good example yesterday (9th July 2021), on a slow climb all day from around 11 am until the markets closed down for the weekend 😒.


I have looked at different indicators, EMA seems to work quite well for me, the problem is they are all historic, I need to polish that crystal ball!

So, how do you get around the problem of the market dumping you out? 

To be honest I don't think the market is dumping us out (apart from the stop limit hunters or manipulators (if its a software glitch it was programmed in on purpose and is still manipulation) with their wild price spikes at the beginning and end of trading), the market is just following supply and demand and we have a 50 / 50 chance of being correct, a better chance if we follow the trend, unless we place the deal at the high or low end of the chart, IE. buy cable at 1.43 when you know it will go straight line or fall due to profit taking.

Set the stop loss so it cannot be reached and adjust it if required if the trade goes against you further and just ride the storm until the market price changes direction in your favour?

You wouldn't want to get stopped out on a 8 point or higher stop limit, only to see the price change in your direction again.

I know it will put the risk to reward ratio out in your favour, that doesn't matter if you do not take a losing trade.

I read a post on here where the author never closes a loosing deal, he just waits for the price to change direction and go in his favour, which short of some major world changing event it will go through this price cycle, and even after the event it will recover IE. March 2020 all the markets fell and recovered again. 

Thank you for your input, I think we need to nurture the community post content, some of of the posts are just crazy simple to find the answers to.

    • I'll tell you one thing, I wish I'd learnt how to short a market right now! I assume this movement is somewhat to do with whats happening with Ukraine/Russia. It's crashed through multiple 50% levels so is there a point where you say this method no longer works for the conditions at play. For example you can draw 50% levels to your heart's content extending back in time on daily chart swings. If you see enough movement above the level you may decide to trade at least it would somewhat limit the number of trades you were making. Movement of the market back to the high at least if we believe in what has happened historically is a case of when and not if. What is dangerous in my eyes is moves downward that last a long time, like 2008 where it went on for months. If it's relatively quick down and back it's easier to weather e.g. 2020 crash. I am assuming that we are not on a longer term decline but I haven't polished my crystal ball yet this year so not sure

    • Bitcoin (BTC/USD) Technical Outlook Goes from Bad to Worse Jan 24, 2022 |  Paul Robinson, Strategist. DailyFX BTC/USD TECHNICAL OUTLOOK: Major level (39558) was broken on Friday Selling has next significant area of support in focus ETH/USD next support level at 1700   A couple of weeks back when BTC/USD was trying to hold confluent support via a horizontal shelf and trend-line I said, “as long as a close below 39558 doesn’t develop then the outlook is at worst neutral, but likely bullish.” The reversal on Jan 10 offered would-be longs a decent risk/reward opportunity to buy at support, but as of Friday that idea was stopped out in favor of a major support break. Momentum since that break into today has been fierce. The breakdown has the next big level of support in focus, and while it could certainly provide a floor for a big bounce, the macro outlook is breaking down as the broad uptrend comes into question. The deep retracement off the highs will soon have the June 2021 swing-low at 28600 in play. In the context of a strong trend, testing and even worse, breaking, a prior swing low is a major red flag. A good uptrend consists of higher-highs and higher-lows. If the 28600 area holds, then BTC could rally strongly higher and be in the process of creating a broad range dating back to the early part of 2021. But if support breaks, then BTC may be sufficiently damaged that it will be difficult to recover from. Yes a big bounce could still get underway, but that is all it will be viewed as – a bounce. The bottom line at that point, from a technical perspective, is that BTC/USD may go through an extended bear market lasting quite some time. For now, will monitor momentum as support arrives from around 30066 down to 28600. A volatile reversal from that area could at least provide an opportunity for short-term traders looking to play an oversold bounce.   BTC/USD DAILY CHART BTC/USD Chart by TradingView ETH/USD I selling off even harder, having lost a third of its value in about a week. The selling looks set to continue until support via three lows created from May to July, all right around the 1700 mark. Like BTC/USD, watch for a volatile reversal to kick off an oversold bounce.
