Looking good!

If price declines into March and then bottoms on the 14th of March at the 30k level we will have a great opportunity to go long for new highs all the way into 2023! March 14th is the next cyclical turning point and a low on that day will signal a rally.

Buy the dip at 30K?436491437_DOWW220123.thumb.png.e56302bb574fdc51bd0f9035edccb40d.png


The Dow Jones has fallen more than 5% this year amid broad-based stock market weakness. After the recent pullback, the index has broken below its 200-day simple moving average and is now sitting near a key floor in the 34,665 area. If sellers manage to invalidate this support, traders should prepare for a possible decline towards 34,400 and then 34,000, the December low. On the flip side, if we witness a rebound, resistance appears near the 35,000 psychological level, but a move above this barrier can attract buyers and set the stage for a climb towards 35,500 over the near term.

S&P 500, FTSE 100, DAX – Equity Markets Slump as Russian Troops Invade Ukraine

Feb 24, 2022 |  Nick Cawley, Strategist. DailyFX


  • Equity markets hitting multi-month lows.
  • Further volatility is expected going into month-end.
European stock markets sink as Russia invades Ukraine

Global stock markets have made fresh multi-month lows on news that Russian forces have invaded Ukraine, confirming Western fears. The markets are now waiting for confirmation of increased sanctions by the US, EU, and the UK to Russia’s aggression and these embargoes will only add to the current heightened levels of volatility in a range of asset classes. While these new sanctions may eventually bring a level of calm to the market, in the meantime expect heavy swings either way in all equity indices.

While the crisis in Ukraine remains the dominant driver of risk and markets currently, month-end equity portfolio rebalancing may also add an extra dose of volatility in the coming days.

How to Short Sell a Stock When Trading Falling Markets

The S&P 500 is now back at levels last seen in May last year and has lost over 14% since printing an all-time high in early January. Horizontal support from prior swing lows continues to come under pressure and until the overall situation becomes clearer, further sell-offs cannot be discounted. The CCI indicator shows the S&P 500 in oversold territory and this may act as a short-term buffer against further sharp falls.

The FTSE 100 is also under pressure but the indices’ composition is helping to stem further losses at the moment. The FTSE is heavily skewed towards large oil and commodity companies and with the prices of these commodities pushing ever higher, and with a weaker GBPUSD rate helping FTSE exporters, further losses may be contained for now. Recent losses have also pushed the CCI indicator into heavily oversold territory.

The DAX 40, in contrast to the FTSE 100, is being hit harder due to Germany’s heavy reliance on Russian energy. The DAX is over 2,000 points lower than the double high seen in mid-November and early-January, while volatility is at a multi-month high.

    • @CharlotteIG I've been downloading an Excel share list on a regular basis up to yesterday, but it's not returning anything today. Is that a temporary problem? The PDF is there, but I need to be able to filter etc. in Excel. "http://www.marketdatasystems.com/content/files/StockbrokingShareList.xlsx"
    • Charting the Markets: 19 May European indices open lower after worst Wall Street rout in two years. In FX markets we look at EUR/USD, GBP/USD and EUR/GBP. And gold holds steady, and oil bounces, but platinum remains under pressure.       This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • Gold price holds steady, oil bounces, but platinum remains under pressure Gold has been little-affected by the volatility in stocks, while oil prices have regained some ground. Platinum, meanwhile, remains under pressure. Source: Bloomberg   Commodities Gold Recession Platinum Price of oil Oil  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Thursday 19 May 2022  Gold calm despite renewed risk-off moves The sudden drop in stocks yesterday does not appear to have provided much of a lift for gold, which has remained around yesterday’s levels without much of a bounce. Indeed, attempts at a bounce appear to have stalled entirely, with little appetite to even test the highs seen at the beginning of the week. Of course, the stronger dollar plays a big part here, as high inflation readings drive investors to the greenback in the expectation that the tightening of monetary policy in the US will be an extended process. As a result gold is out of favour, ignored in the rush to move into higher-yielding bonds at the very moment when it might have been expected to shine. Admittedly the bearish case hasn’t got much traction here either, with little inclination evident at present to move lower towards $1800 and then $1780. Meanwhile, a sustained bounce requires the price to move back above $1836, Tuesday’s high, and then move on above the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) which is currently $1837. Source: ProRealTime Brent crude hovers above 50-day MA Two days of losses have stalled here, as buyers attempt to move back into oil. The battle of the supply and demand outlooks continues, with the latter and its expected weakening of global demand holding sway over the previous two days. Expectations of weaker growth across the glove, and even a recession, have meant that the bull case for oil has taken a knock, even with expectations of a European ban on Russian imports providing support to the price. Price action this week has seen Brent unable to push on through the area of resistance around $114. The price needs to clear this to open the way to $120.50, the high from late March, and then above this the February peak at $131 comes into view. Sellers will look to push the price back to $101.50 and then the $99.20 support zone, which has held since early April. Source: ProRealTime Platinum prices slump once again Expectations of strong supplies of platinum continue to drive the price lower, reinforced by the more negative economic outlook. As with other risk assets, platinum has been under pressure as forecasts of economic growth are revised down, while the dollar’s strength provides another driving factor for losses. The slump over the past week has seen the price falter at the 50-day SMA, and it is now on the cusp of returning to the support zone around $915. Additional declines below this level would bring the lows of late 2020 into view around $840. Source: ProRealTime
