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).

    • I don't know but it looks like a really awesome service Because I have come across all sorts of mixers in my work  
    • Charting the Markets: 2 June Indices rally as US agrees debt ceiling bill. EUR/USD, GBP/USD rally while EUR/GBP stabilises as US debt ceiling bill is passed. And WTI recoups recent losses while gold, silver on track for first weekly advance. Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 02 June 2023               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.
    • It was a blockbuster number yesterday for the ADP private payrolls, showing 278,000 jobs opened in May, while forecasts had been for 170,000.  Jeremy Naylor | Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 02 June 2023 IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor suggests a similar upside surprise could see almost 300,000 jobs created under the non-farm payroll count with estimates for 190,000 job creations. The unemployment rate is seen rising one notch to 3.5%. (Video Transcript) NPFs: what to expect Could yesterday's strong private payrolls number from the ADP reading give us an insight into the potential upside risk to today's non-farm payrolls? That report from ADP yesterday showed 278,000 jobs opened in May - forecasts had been for 170,000. Now the NFP expectations, 190,000 job creations are forecast for the month of May proportionately using that ADP surprise. That would mean an upside reading for NFPs close to 300,000. Why the increase? Now, the unemployment rate is seen rising one notch to 3.5%. Why is that rising? When you've got that rise in the number of job creations, the unemployment rate is not taking the same data that the jobs numbers themselves are being produced from average hourly earnings. We're looking there for that to go up 0.3% month-on-month, 4.4% year-on-year, still below the rate of inflation. Now, this chart shows the unemployment rate back to pre-Covid-19 levels. It's clear that jobs have been created at an appreciable rate and this alongside a relatively strong GDP number and inflation coming down, there may yet be a soft landing for the US economy. But if the Federal Reserve (Fed) does continue to raise rates, things may get a little bit more sticky for the economy and a little bit more difficult to predict. This is a comparison of fed funds rates and US consumer price inflation (CPI) since January 2021. So you can see here the rate at which the US central bank has been piling the pressure on the monetary markets with that rise to five and a quarter percent. And at the same time, the CPI number is coming down, which is a good thing, but it's still not down to the 2% level, 4.9% is a long way away still from the 2% target. So the Fed is entitled still to have an excuse to raise interest rates. US dollar basket Let's take a look at what's been happening with the US dollar basket. Yesterday, we saw a pullback coming through as we saw money going into risk assets because of that rubber stamping from the Senate or the vote in the Senate to approve the budget that's now gone for the presidential seal. EUR/USD And we've seen a second day in a row of losses or the euro for the dollar basket as far as the euro/dollar is concerned, bouncing away from that 76.4% retracement. And I think now, you will have been stopped out if you were short on this, you would have been stopped out on this and hopefully you would have got some profits on the way down. So that's where things are ahead of non-farm payrolls out today at 13:30 UK time. And we will be live on the IG platform at 13:25 today.
