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.

    • Hurricane season in the US - Where to look for trading opportunities
      Hurricane Michael is already regarded as one of the strongest hurricanes ever to hit US. The worst hit areas of Florida’s northwest coast saw significant damage to residential property, along with President Trump authorizing FEMA to step in and coordinate disaster efforts. 

      Even though the worst might have already passed, the 2018 North Atlantic hurricane season is likely to have sizable effect for the next seven weeks. The effect on the markets can be notable around this time, with the following sectors likely to see an increase in volatility.

    • Does volatility affect IPOs?
      The music entertainment arm of Tencent, which has 800 million users across a variety of platforms in China, had originally planned to go public in the United States imminently. The IPO was initially set to launch as soon as this week but has now reportedly been delayed because of the recent global sell-off. It is not the first company to pull out or postpone an IPO in the recent weeks, and whilst Tencent have declined to comment on the decision, it’s likely to be on the back of volatility seen in the equity markets.
