So going off this hideous chart, why would anyone have been going long after Mon 8th/Tues 9th?  Because you trade upswings on lower timeframes?  What kind of trend is that, anyway?  Isn't it just going sideways?

The lines and indicators aren't telling me anything that I can't already see.

Confused.

No wonder so many people lose money.

Maybe the 50 day SMA will provide support again?

A nice wee drop to 24000 would be good for my coffers, Erika Badu 😘

S&P Daily sitting on support at 3038.

Dax and Dow H1 stuck at the low from yesterday afternoon.

I suspect many trading possibly look a bit more in depth

Fundamental analysis?

Elliot Waves?

Or analysing charts with the power of hindsight?

But hey, that's just me and perhaps that's what traders do and perhaps I need to study 'dumps' and 'erections' far more to become a successful trader. 

So what are you studying that makes you successful?

Stuff on Dailyfx?  'Here are a dozen lines; price may do this or it may do that.  If it does do that then it may do this; or it may not.  And if it does this then maybe this will happen, or maybe that.  And  by the way, 62% of IG's clients are long and they are a bunch of idiots who lose all their money.'

How is that working out for you?

Unemployment claims were slightly more than expected.

But Chris Beauchamp was probably right yesterday, there won't be another dramatic drop.  ;)

Why levels are so important for trading.

That looks great although I don't know what that alternating-coloured line is.

On IG's 1 min chart you can see it bouncing off daily pivots, PRT lets you have hourly, four hourly pivots etc.

Doesn't work when I try it.

Must be doing something wrong.

I mean ... if all you're doing is buying and selling bounces off pivots then why even have 'indicators'?

It's like all these hideous f*king charts plastered with sh!te to make the 'analyst' look like they know what they're talking about.

And the punters (who are a bunch of losers, mainly) lap it up and ask for more.

I am both confused, and stupid - I know that I know nothing.  What?

Well here's a conundrum.  It looks like it was just another 'wee dip' in the DJIA, but most IG clients are long.

So, what do I do in the here and now?

Not, like Chris Beauchamp, smugly look back months from now with his awesome powers of hindsight and say that most IG clients were dumb losers.

 

ANSWER: Don't go long or short.

JUST DON'T TRADE!

PSAR and MACD (PSAR is for confirmation and use as a trailing stop) with 200 SMA as filter.

At the moment, no trades advised. 🥴

5 and 20 with RSI gave a sell signal though.

No 200 SMA filter used.

When using the RSI you have to be prepared to through your crossover rule out the window when you see a divergence followed by a big candle penetrating the 5 SMA 🤯

Dax is approaching 'buy' signal, and the good news is most IG clients are short 😁

That is just an on-chart stochastic (smoothed) instead of it being in a sub window.

Interesting insight into Nasdaq's repeating 5% corrections near the end of the vid 'understanding auction imbalances' just posted in Technical Analysis thread.

    • I want to believe that, even if we had viruses for many years and we lived with them like nothing happened, this one is killing more people than it should. At least is what reports are saying. That is why countries are forcing lock-downs. Think about that a lock-down is going to extend the furlough policies all over the world again. I don't think a government want to pay that money out to citizens if they don't have to, and companies are going to have to close business for good if we have a second lock-down everywhere. I agree with the statement that we had many corona-viruses before i.e. common flu, but why now governments are taking these draconian measures to force people into a quarantine? If we had the same dangerous viruses always around why are they now locking people at their homes. Did they not care about people before? I think the virus is way more deadly than they tell us and that is why people are not really that scared of it. If we had all the information that is available to professionals we would be really scared and people would lock themselves without waiting any government to tell them. My wife is Chinese and I get their news first hand. They are not reporting what is really happening since the very beginning and it is really hard to trust the Chinese government  on anything related to this virus. They still have the problem there, they keep locking entire cities down for short periods the minute they see anything. It is not reported here in the news but every week they lock people down at their homes.  This virus is really nasty and if locking people down is going to stop it, let's do it. 
    • I agree with 99% of this - the current strain is virtually exact to a strain found in 2012 by a group of Chinese scientists, then when 6 of them died from exposure the virus was sealed and sent to Wuhan I challenged David Icke  to prove the excess deaths were'nt excess deaths, from the info I looked into I'm satisfied the virus is genuine and I'm probably one of the worlds biggest sceptics  From a lock down point of view I'd of thought the perfect place to test out compliance of mass herds would be the USA - hasn't happened strongly enough for me to be concerned but it shown those that could create such circumstances how compliment most people are.  
    • Corona virus has been with us since forever we just never mass tested before. There are no extra deaths this year than any other and it's the same unfortunate types who die of corona virus every year (over 80's with pre-existing conditions 90% of cases). Corona virus is always circulating in the population most people being completely unaware and asymptomatic, herd immunity is built and the virus mutates or dies out. Tests just show you have been exposed to the virus at some stage which could have been months ago and you were most likely asymptomatic. Vaccines don't work for corona virus because they mutate very quickly which is why there is no vaccine for the common cold (a corona virus). And why flu shots don't work very often because they are based on the previous years dominant strain not the current year's (the mass manufacturing would be too late). Covid 19 has already been mutating and the last studies I saw several weeks ago confirmed that as usual a particularly nasty strain becomes less deadly with each new mutation. Another 30,000 people will die next year from respiratory infections as it's the 5 year rolling average (covid 19 or not), weather it'll be covid 19 next year or another strain no one knows but they will keep the covid ball rolling anyway. So all in all it looks like lockdown til the end of time.
