The US markets may have just signalled the top.

Recommended Posts

A wild swing in the US indices overnight may be the tipping point for the bulls.

From the outstanding ADP employment numbers early in the session lifting the DOW from yesterdays close a massive 282 points to the intraday high and followed by commentary from the Fed wanting to start unwinding the $4.5 trillion balance sheet, within hours the indice had finished 41 points in the red. The S&P500 followed the same pattern.

This type of violent swing can be the longer term defining point for the bulls, as all long positions taken during the session get closed out or sit as unrealised losses on the trading journal. The coming price action will determine if those unrealised positions have to be closed out.
On the overnight price action some very powerful charting signals can be catalogued into the traders set up journal for future reference.

 

Taking a look at the daily and using a confirmation only observation, the large range on the first of March posted a high at 21,171 points the following price action has not breached this level. The longer this persists the more probability of price weakness. I have marked the 50% midpoint of the large range, it is a charting / price phenomena that these large range periods can offer resistance or support at the midpoint. This is a practically strong observation in the weekly chart. (There was an excellent book written on the subject called “The Japanese chart of charts”)

In the intraday session of the market using a 1 hour chart a very nice reversal signal setup has marked the high for now.

The exhaustion high followed by the larger range hourly bar suggest the buyers have left. The inside range and second short range also confirm the absence of buyers, and finally the breakpoint as long positions are closed and the short sellers see opportunity.

So where too? Referencing back to the daily chart the last spike low set on the 3rd of April has a low of 20,570.

The importance of this level is based around the fact that during the session the market found buyers at the low a price breakdown below this level would simply put further pressure on the long positions, intraday momentum should be monitored for both support and outright rejection at this level.

** Trading always incorporates stops, this setup is no different.**

Hi 

 

I see you have posted images of cash charts of the DJI provided by IT Finance/ProRealTime. Would you kindly let me know if what I am seeing is the premium version provided by ProRealTime when one opens an account with them linked to an IG CFD account?

 

Thanks

Hi   The Dow and US crude could be worth keeping an eye on. Yesterday's fall from the high for Dow is a nice pull back and linked to the continued downturn in Oil which had a strong push down yesterday to test long term support (since Oct 2016). This was done on only moderate volume and so looks to have been caused more by vacuum than strong bearish pressure. Are the oil bulls just laying in wait?

 

Both could be due a strong bounce up or strong break lower. The US open should be interesting.

    • 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.
