I just applied Warren Buffet's thinking and beliefs to Dax and Dow indices , it works  I just go for value.

 

The problem is these guys using mainly technical analysis, on it's own, without learning market behaviors and lack of understanding of "how to profit from trading " , are ending up on in the 95 % club.95% are losing , using technical analysis alone , then there is a problem with the Gurus  who teach.

If  marketing timing is difficult , the application of the underlying technical analysis is redundant.

 

Why technical analysis is shunned by professionals http://www.followingthetrend.com/2014/05/why-technical-analysis-is-shunned-by-professionals/

 

Technical analysis is about market timing, it is difficult to time the markets.

Why market timing doesn't work

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/why-market-timing-doesnt-work-2013-10-23

 

one in 100 investors will be successful using timing.

Price action relies on market timing , both technical analysis and price action require market timing to work.Both don't work and make money because it is difficult to time the entries and exits.

4 Reasons Why Market Timing Fails as a Money Maker

If you can't time the markets on longer term investing, it is certainly more difficult in the short term trading .We are being taught by educators who make money from selling education.

There is another upstanding method for analysing the market - it's the dollar basket chart - US Dollar Index. 

Though the most strong influence this 'basket" makes on EUR/USD as it has the biggest weight in the total proportion between major US pairs, but i think it's possible to apply the chart of dollar basket to other partials: GBP/USD, USD/JPY, USD/CHF, USD/CAD and so on. So - called another variant of technical analysis.

There is nothing in what you say or in your links that qualifies the statement 'If  marketing timing is difficult , the application of the underlying technical analysis is redundant'.

 

Neither linked articles on market timing mention technical analysis at all and you also include a link to a piece on technical analysis that doesn't mention market timing.

 

The two things are different concepts and it is difficult to see how this even fits in this thread.

Most gurus use technical analysis in hindsight after the event, could have would have profits and trades supposedly taken or possible.

 

Here is one showing zero sum game!

The only way to test if all this works is for you to call out trades in advance, like I do and prove that with  live trades and advance calls .

 

I challenge you to post 20 trades in advance, using technical analysis  and prove to us it makes money.

 

I am sure you will not take this challenge, I see a lot of sites singing technical analysis,  but all this singing about technical analysis is of  no benefit to a trader, unless he can use it to make money.

 

An advance call example is 

 

Buy ftse 7605, stop loss 7580, date 27/12/2017 

 

All this should be unedited posts.pooh.gif

Good grief oilfxpro, haven't we been through this before, discretionary traders usually can't post in advance and lets not forget your own record is less than successful and opaque,

 

Lets see, starts the 'set in stone' options dow and dax system in early 2016 but soon trails off and then goes dark.

Comes back with mark 2 (long only).

Then mark 3 (off support long only).

Then Mark 4 (not daily but weekly).

 

Can't wait for Mark 5.

I am baiting you "to prove you can make money" using technical analysis.

 

Only 20 trades to be called in advance, in a separate thread.

 

Trading industry provides quite luring opportunities to earn risk-free, by teaching new traders. As far as there are wannabe traders who can afford education. But this education goes to the level of qualification of mentor .If you can prove it works, then we will all sign up and could all offer you our million dollar accounts to call signals on.Fink 1000 subscribers @ £100 per month = £100,000 a month  earn risk-free.

What's to prove? I've already seen your 'infallible' system fail over a year ago and this year has been no different. I am happy with what I already know.

 

The reason you must constantly adjust your 'set in stone' system is because it can only ever work in very specific market conditions as I have pointed out before. If you applied a bit of basic technical analysis you would see clearly whether or not those specific market conditions were actually present instead of blindly taking options on a daily basis, that was always going to fail and so it's no wonder that after a short spell you stopped posting your trades, again.

 

So I look forward to the Mark 5 version and it's inevitable failure as you continue to reject and deny the very thing that thing that would help.

It means to any reader, it fails frequently.

Do you realise these last two posts don't actually make any sense? But it comes as no surprise that you are taking fx advice from a cafe manager you found on yet another poor forum site though, it explains a lot. Anyone who believes the markets are 'totally random' does not understand how an auction works.

hi ,  !

have  a look at the FTSE daily chart - if to use the Momentum indicator, it's seen strong divergence and  the price will go down for a several days. So the technical analyses works rather good.

If you are trading the FTSE then you do need to keep an eye on cable too! (GBP/USD).  This has a strong correlation, in general (but not always the case)  The FTSE trades in the opposite direction to cable and can be a good lead indicator for the FTSE.

It is likely that ftse may correct, it becomes more expensive for foreign investors, if £ is stronger.

That is really not technical analysis. It is fundamental analysis.Technical analysis alone is unreliable.It is only the road map to the trading gold.

 

We don't know whether to place a short on ftse, in case gbp weakened.If all other indices are  still bullish,shorting ftse can be dangerous.

I don't use technical analysis.I looked at correlation on DOW  , S and P , Nadaq and DAX.It is more relevant.

 

More on technical analysis below 

 

Technical analysts suffer from psychological biases, in processing technical analysis information.

 

http://vantharp.com/consulting/vkt_interview.htm

 

Van Tharp" At the most basic level, people must trade by processing information. Unfortunately, we're not very efficient information processors. We have a lot of biases which enter into trading decisions. I've documented 25 of them. However, I think most of those biases can be summarized by realizing that trading/investing are very simple processes and we human beings try to make it into something much more complex. Those biases are all about adding complexity to the world.".

I think this situation must be observed during a time. Because this divergence must work out. Of course I am not the follower of technical analysis, but on my practice momentum divergence works out soon or later.

In the main I find people try and read into things far too much, the market will do what the market does and the market makers have the dabble too!  In my experience if personally find using Heikin-Ashi provides over 75% confidence in direction and serves me very well.  No other indicators other than those mentioned previously are used.

If market timing was easy, your technical analysis system, using market structure and wyckoff etc,  would allow you to enter on 3 moving averages, as a result you would get  80 % plus success rate.If you could get a 80 % hit rate you would be very very wealthy.

 

My studies show that market timing is not easy, otherwise I would be doing it.

There are plenty of sites sing about technical analysis.I only like analysis that I can use to time the entry in the  trade .If I can't time the t/a entry what good is it?

There is no single system to cope with all changing market conditions, so either have a range of systems or simply wait for the market conditions to change to suit the system you are using, or look for a chart that the system will suit. When the dax started ranging that no longer suited your system, you were right to take a look at the ftse instead.

    • Wheat Elliott Wave Analysis Function - Trend Mode - Trend Structure -Impulse wave Position - Wave A of (B) Direction - Wave A of (B) is still in play Details -  Wheat daily and H4 have been adjusted due to how fast and deep decline from 720’4 has emerged. The long-term forecast on the daily chart shows that the surge to 720’4 is part of the impulse wave from March 2022. We are now in wave (5) which is expected to emerge into a 3-wave structure. Price now appears to be in wave A after which it will correct upside for B before returning downside. Overview: Since late May, grain prices have been falling sharply, with Wheat shedding over 20% since May 28th, 2024. This decline is about to erase the gains made from mid-April to late May. The nearly one-month sell-off adds to the long-term decline from March 2022, when Wheat traded at 1364’4. Currently trading at 571’4, Wheat is likely to fall further toward 500 in the coming weeks.   Daily Chart Analysis: The decline from March 2022 is forming a bearish impulse wave structure in the primary degree. The 5th wave is completing a diagonal structure, which has been the most time-consuming among the actionary waves, lasting nearly 21 months. The price is currently in wave (5) of 5 (circled), which will likely evolve into a 3-wave structure targeting the 500 major psychological level.   H4 Chart Analysis: The H4 chart shows the sub-waves of wave (5), which is now close to completing its first leg - wave A of (5). A corrective bounce is expected to follow for wave B before the price turns downside for wave C of (5) toward 500, provided the 720’4 pivot is not breached. Wheat and other grains are overwhelmingly bearish and may continue in this direction for the next several weeks before major bullish corrections begin.   In conclusion, Wheat prices remain bearish with potential for further declines, targeting the 500 psychological level, contingent on the completion of the current corrective wave B and the subsequent wave C of (5).

    • TXN Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Daily Chart, Texas Instruments Inc., (TXN) Daily Chart TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Triangle POSITION: Wave {iv}. DIRECTION: Bottom in wave {iv}.   DETAILS: Looking for a triangle in wave {iv} of 3 as we have found resistance on TL2 at 200$.     TXN Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4Hr Chart, Texas Instruments Inc., ( TXN) 4Hr Chart TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Triangle POSITION: Wave (e) of {iv}. DIRECTION: Bottom in (e).   DETAILS: Looking for wave (e) to be near completion to then resume higher and find support on top of 200$.   Welcome to our latest Elliott Wave analysis for Texas Instruments Inc. (TXN). This analysis provides an in-depth look at TXN's price movements using the Elliott Wave Theory, helping traders identify potential opportunities based on current trends and market structure. We will cover insights from both the daily and 4-hour charts to offer a comprehensive perspective on TXN's market behavior.   * TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart* In our Elliott Wave analysis of Texas Instruments Inc. (TXN), we observe a counter-trend corrective pattern characterized by a triangle structure. TXN is currently positioned in wave {iv} of 3, suggesting a bottoming process in wave {iv}. The recent price action indicates that TXN has encountered resistance around the TL2 trendline at $200. This resistance could imply the formation of a triangle in wave {iv}, setting the stage for a potential resumption of the upward trend once the triangle completes. Traders should monitor the $200 level for signs of a breakout or further consolidation within the triangle.   *TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – 4Hr Chart* On the 4-hour chart, TXN is following a counter-trend corrective mode within a triangle structure, specifically in wave (e) of {iv}. The current analysis suggests that wave (e) is nearing completion, which could signal the end of the triangle and the beginning of a move higher. The completion of wave (e) should ideally find support above the $200 level, aligning with the daily chart's indication of a possible upward resumption post-triangle. Traders should watch for the termination of wave (e) and the subsequent price action to confirm a bullish continuation.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
