Was interesting @PandaFace, even more so now as people realised Trump was only discounting the most severe response  to China (for the moment), not actually halting the 'trade war'.

Bounce off the 200 MA on the 1 hour chart and back to retest 24084.

The indices are searching for support but we may well be getting close to the end game here as Trump threatens to go 'all in' with a tariff on the remaining imported goods from China ($500 Billion). Chinese can't respond in kind and have started to talk of a boycott instead, time to do a deal?

Yesterday dow breached resistance while dax hesitated, today could swing on the Juncker visit. Trump will do a deal if the EU have anything to offer. A nice break upward for the ftse but the bulls will want to see some continuation.

The Dow managed to break up into some clear space yesterday and Trump talking up GDP 'may be in the 5's next quarter'. FTSE, Dax and Nikkei still have some resistance overhead. Interesting weekly charts;

Hi @Caseynotes

I appreciate you taking the time to share your insights. As a novice trader, I find them very interesting and helpful.

All things considered, would you short either DAX or NASDAQ at this moment in time?

HI @Kazeko, I don't trade the Nasdaq but included the post on it a week ago as it made an all time high and many think it is something of a leading indicator for indices. If I were a long-term trader (which I'm not) I wouldn't be trying to pick the highs. The uptrend prevails and with no resistance levels ahead where the bears might ambush price dip buying is the only play until the bears have shown they have taken control.

I look at the Dow every morning as it is often a leading indicator for the other global indices then I look at the Dax as that is the one I'm going to trade. If the dow looks bullish I would be looking for similar signs in the dax but more importantly I am looking for price to move from one support/resistance level to the next on an intraday basis.

This morning there were mixed signals but if you look at yesterday's dax post price was moving up off clear support and the target was also clear and that was indeed how the day transpired.

So I don't really try to make predictions, basically I'm looking for clear direction with a clear target then I'm looking for an opportunity to jump aboard.

Big 350 point drop in the Nikkei seems to be pulling all else down though not to the same degree. Nikkei trying to keep in touch with support level 22344 but there is a big gap down if loses it's grip. FTSE resting on solid support while Dax and Dow are still looking.

Looking like they have found support and as with the Nikkei are likely this morning to explore higher for resistance.

Lack of enthusiasm to have a real go at the 4 hr (yellow) resistance levels in the indices charts, current picture looks like a retest of the 4 hr support levels most likely this morning.

    • London's house prices - EMEA brief 21 Aug
      Asian stocks generally up on hopes trade tensions may ease, with opes of a China - US trade resolution pushing up copper, often seen as a barometer for the economic outlook, dragging behind it miners such as BHP Billiton and Glencore. Venezuela have debased their currency taking off five zeros, along with increase minimum wage by 3000% in and effort to prop up their economy. Yesterday the world trade organisation confirmed that Turkey had lodged a trade dispute against the US. Gold gains as Trump's remarks weigh on the US dollar, whilst oil edges up on tighter US outlook and Iran sanctions. Finally, see what's going on with London house prices in the IGTV video featured video below.

    • Oil prices slip - EMEA brief 20 Aug
      Iran has stressed to OPEC over the weekend that no other member country should take up the slack for reduced oil exports in the face of Trump imposed US sanctions. Oil prices slip on concerns over slowing economic growth. Asia shares inch up with yuan ahead of Sino - US talks, whilst UK ministers are set to release their first ‘no deal’ Brexit documents on Thursday in an effort to prepare for a “worst possible” outcome. Persimmon results are expected tomorrow, with many in the sector looking to the release as a barometer for the wider housing sector and how a rising inflation rate will affect the market.

    • Over Exposed Traders, Global Taper Tantrum, Jackson Hole - DFX key themes
      There are a few undisputable and universal forces when it comes to the financial markets. One of those all-powerful winds is the concept of risk trends which is referred to by many names such as ‘risk on, risk off’ or referenced unknowingly when we blindly attribute market wide movement to animal spirits through technical cues, smart versus dumb money, panic to greed.

      Another of these truisms is the allocation of capital. While total wealth does grow and contract, it is apportioned to some market whether that is emerging market equities to US Treasuries to home mattresses. In a global market, there is also distribution to different regions according to what country or collective economy presents the best opportunities.

      And, from this parsing of investment preference; we can learn a lot about the market; but one of the most elemental solutions is the global market’s general bearing for sentiment (the risk trends referenced before). There are no easy, definitive measures for allocations across such a wide universe of markets, but there are various measures for specific areas and key ports for which to apply measure such that we come to a good understanding of the markets’ health.
