My 4h chart as well as your own chart clearly shows dax completely reversed and broke back down to major support, where it goes from here who knows?

 

The important point is that no strategy designed for a bull trend will ever succeed in a downtrend so it is important to change your strategy to suit the prevailing market conditions, which in the case of dax has been downtrending for the first half of November.

 

But we have discussed this before as in, can any one single EA (or strategy) cope with up-trending and down-trending and ranging markets, and the answer is of course no.

Can you add more value to your charts, by including price action and trading opportunities.Can you add a few more indicators?

 

In stock market technical analysis, support and resistance is a concept that the movement of the price of a security will tend to stop and reverse at certain predetermined price levels. These levels are denoted by multiple touches of price without a breakthrough of the level.Highly volatile instruments break through these levels regularly, only to respect these levels later.

Oh dear, looks like dax is failing at the 100 ema, that's clearly an important level.

 

The lines on my charts are support and resistance levels, as well I will often include Fibonacci retracement levels if relevant because they can also act as support  and resistance levels.

 

Here is the code to make it easier for you,

 

Green dotted - hourly.

Yellow dotted - 4 hourly.

Orange line - daily.

Red line - weekly.

Dark red line - monthly.

 

I'm surprised you didn't link any of the many videos I have posted on drawing support and resistance levels over the last near two years.

As I say 'schoolboy level'.

You may  make a good trading educator/teacher, but you won't  produce successful students, by providing little information on your charts.

 

Have you tried using 20, 40, 60 and 80 numbers on Fibonacci , they work equally as well.The Fibonacci Retracements Tool at StockCharts shows four common retracements: 23.6%, 38.2%, 50%, and 61.8%. 

 

20= oversold i.e buy

40 -= cheap

60= buy trend begining

80 = high probability trend momentum.

 

Lagging moving averages acts a support /resistance?

As I said this morning this is an 'important day for the dax'. On the 1 hour chart price has been hammering away at the 100 ema and 4 hour resistance level (confluence) for 7 hours now and so far it's still holding.

 

Price closed below the 100 ma on the daily chart on the 29/12 and then put in a new low before returning to retest the 100, so now the time frames are out of alignment. For the last couple of days the daily and 1 hour price has been below their 100 ma while the 5 min and 1 min have been for the most part have been above. To get serious movement they need to align, that way all traders no matter their time frame agree on general direction. At the moment they are in conflict and have bought price to a standstill. The daily chart is identical now as it was this morning, it doesn't matter which way it breaks but when it does it should hopefully lead to a few days at least of trending.

 

Looks like breaking now as I am about to post this, will be interesting to see what the daily close looks like.

The particular point I was trying to make was that unless the time-frames are aligned any trade will always be fighting against the other time-frames which is precisely what you do and why you are needing a "100 tick tolerance due to dax volatility" to make 30 ticks. This is also why you keep changing your 'system', because there is no single system that will work. When market conditions change that needs to be recognised and catered for, that is a most important message and the reason for most of my posts, to highlight changing market conditions. When a chart has converted to trending it really doesn't matter about the 'set up', just get in at a sensible place. 

 

Continually going long in a downtrend or down channel or even in a range will never work and posting occasional and random results in an attempt to prove otherwise won't cut it. The other point I was trying to make was the essential need to precisely define the risk of a trade, a 100 tick tolerance is neither precise nor defined. It's fine to go long off the bottom of a clearly defined down channel or range because the risk (the stop level) is well defined, you can see it, it's right there, no need for 100 tick tolerance, if price reverses back up off it that's your entry and you are only risking 10 - 20 tick at most and the target is usually just as obvious. But when the 'support level' covers 170 ticks you are really just flipping a coin with a nonsensical risk reward ratio.

You don't understand how I trade.

 

For  a 170 ticks range , my risk is limited to the cost of the option, it is usually about 30 ticks.If I take  1  position at -50 ticks   , the second is at -120  and third at -170.If I risk 90 ticks on 3 positions, which is less than 1% of my account, 80 %  of the time  I break even because if I get 60 ticks profit , it covers the loss  of  one of the positions and ends up in a profit. of 30.

 

I only trade one system and do not change from system to system, like amateurs do.My system is buy low  and buy more lower, sell for a profit. It will work 85 % of the time, I am happy to lose 15% of the time.

 

Continually going long in a down trend is a good strategy, if you are smart enough to manage risk.

 

You have a misunderstanding of down channels, down channels are tilted  ranging boxes.

 

If all this technical analysis was any good, it has become obsolete method of making consistent profits, because everybody is using it and edges are diminishing.

Dax races up having cleared resistance at the 100 and 200 MA's. Resistance ahead at the 23.6 Fib level and further ahead at the down trend line. Note the four perfect touches on the bottom of the enlarged pennant (or asymmetric triangle, call it what you like).  Some would have you believe MA's can't act as support and resistance and that you can ignore any bar that doesn't fit your bias, nonsense of coarse.

but most of this analysis has no proof of success in a live market .95% of the traders will buy your analysis and use it to become profitable and make huge profits.

The 'few days of trending' that was hoped for on Wednesday on the break or rejection of the 100 MA did materialise and both of the next resistance levels were also broken. Stalled now at the 13413 level which is a reflection of the out of hours Dow which has stalled at 25385.

Why would you want to do anything in a sideways moving market? I showed you Wyckoff, did you not even look at it ? The objective of trading is to take advantage of the range expansion periods and stay clear of the range periods (unless they are big and you are using a specific range play strategy). This is basic stuff really and the lack of understanding explains why, a few months ago, you were trying to use an up trend strategy in a ranging and even in a down trend market (can't remember the version number of that one).

    • Volatile trade, following Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s comments at the Economic Club of Washington DC, has ultimately ended in gains for major US indices the SP500, Dow Jones and Nasdaq 100. Source Bloomberg   Indices Market trend Federal Reserve Dow Jones Industrial Average Nasdaq-100 Trade    Shaun Murison | Senior Market Analyst, Johannesburg | Publication date: Wednesday 08 February 2023  While the Fed chair noted that inflation was continuing to ease, he also suggested that US lending rates are likely to rise further. While disinflation has begun in the world’s largest economy, figures remain a far cry off the central banks 2% target. Expectations are that rates are still likely to reach the 5% to 5.25% range, considered a point of neutrality. However, Mr Powell cautioned markets that the reemergence of higher inflation and strong labour reports could push rates further than markets currently expect. Markets appeared to dismiss the ‘hawkish’ comments from the Fed, and major benchmark indices have started to extend the bullish trends we have seen this year. S&P 500 (US 500)   Source IG The moving 20 (red), 50 (green)and 200 (blue) day simple moving averages (MAs) reaffirm the upward trend bias for the SP500 index. The stochastic oscillator currently labours in overbought territory. Our view is that the trend takes precedence over the overbought signal. A shallow pullback on the index looks to have ended with a bullish engulfing candle pattern / price reversal. 4195 and 4220 provide the initial upside resistance targets from the move higher, while 4325 provides a longer-term upside resistance target. Traders who are long might consider using close below the 4085 low as a tight stop loss indication for the trade. A tight stop loss consideration is in lieu of the overbought conditions in play. Traders could also consider trailing a stop loss with the red trend line on the chart. Nasdaq 100 (US 100) Source IG The technical indications on the Nasdaq 100 (US Tech 100) are like that of the SP500. The moving 20 (red), 50 (green)and 200 (blue) day simple moving averages (MAs) reaffirm the upward trend bias for the index while stochastic oscillator currently labours in overbought territory. A shallow pullback on the index looks to have ended with a bullish engulfing candle pattern / price reversal. 12900 and 13190 are the initial upside resistance targets from the move higher. Traders who are long might consider using close below the 12400 low as a tight stop loss indication for the trade. A tight stop loss consideration is in lieu of the overbought conditions in play. Traders could also consider trailing a stop loss with the red trend line on the chart. Dow Jones Industrial Index (Wall Street 30) Source IG The Dow Jones Industrial Index while also posting gains in the near term, reflects a slightly different trading environment right now to the SP500 and Nasdaq indices. The short to medium term trend for the index is considered sideways, while the longer-term trend bias is considered up. The sideways range is considered between levels 32475 (support) and 34660 (resistance). Traders of the index might prefer to keep a long bias to trades in lieu of the longer-term uptrend still in play. Long trade considerations might be on a bullish price reversal closer to range support or on a bullish upside break of range resistance.
    • FTSE 100 near record high, DAX 40 and S&P 500 also higher on Fed Chair Powell speech Outlook on FTSE 100, DAX 40 and S&P 500 post less hawkish than anticipated Jerome Powell speech. Source: Bloomberg    Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Wednesday 08 February 2023  FTSE 100 trades close to new all-time highs The FTSE 100 rallied to a new all-time high overnight following Wednesday evening’s less hawkish than anticipated speech by the Federal Reserve (Fed) chair Jerome Powell, even though he explained that more rate hikes would be needed if the US labour market remains strong but also mentioned that disinflation had begun. A continued advance in the UK blue chip index could have the psychological 8,000 mark in focus, if further record highs were to be seen. Slips should find support around the 7,876 January peak and further down at Tuesday’s 7,843 low. While it underpins, immediate upside pressure should be maintained. Source: ProRealTime DAX 40 recovers on back of stronger US equity markets On Tuesday, the DAX 40 revisited its Monday low but then recovered off it amid stronger US equity markets which positively interpreted comments by Fed chair Jerome Powell, even though he mentioned that inflation may last “quite a bit of time.” Following Tuesday’s Hammer formation on the daily candlestick chart, the DAX 40 may once more be heading towards its 15,553 early February high, provided that Tuesday’s low at 15,272 underpins on a daily chart closing basis. Above it the 2023 uptrend line at 15,318 may offer support as well. Source: ProRealTime S&P 500 rallies post Fed chair Powell’s speech The S&P 500 saw some volatile trading on Tuesday, rising in anticipation of Fed chair Jerome Powell’s speech and then rapidly dropping during his speech before finally rallying as the market interpreted his comments to be less hawkish than previously anticipated. A swift rise off Tuesday’s 4,088 low took the index back above the 4,155 mid-September high while targeting last week’s six-month high at 4,195 which hasn’t been reached yet, though. If overcome, however, the late August high at 4,215 would be next in line. A bullish bias will be maintained while no bearish reversal takes the S&P 500 below Tuesday’s 4,088 low. If so, a top may be forming which could take the index back to the 55- and 200-day simple moving averages (SMAs) at 3,966 to 3,938. Source: ProRealTime
