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 th

Finding it hard to justify current Dow levels. Any thoughts?

justifications don't come into it, it's purely a reflection of sentiment for the near future according to peeps with a lot more money than us spent on research giving results we will never see, that's not to say they're always right, they just usually are 🙂

Here is an old quote. “Markets can stay irrational longer than you can stay solvent.”  - John Maynard Keynes... and one of my all time heroes of economics.

Expectations were quite low for this session with the U.S. closed for Independence Day and so far, rightly so.

Tepid, lukewarm, half-hearted? There are many ways to describe the open 30 minutes after which the STOXX 600 was up about 0.1%.

The upbeat mood in Asia hasn't spread in Europe to say the least.

While Wall Street and Europe seem to be losing some steam, the S&P did manage to end this four day week with a 4% rise, the fourth best weekly performance in a year.

And yet investors are selling into this rally. Data from BofA this morning shows that money is being quickly pulled for equity funds: $1.3 billion from Europe and a second consecutive week of U.S. outflows (-$4.8 bln).

As you can see from their chart the picture for institutional investors doesn't chime with the upbeat sentiment of retail investors on Wall Street.

It actually rather echoes the reports of "smart money" scratching its head and waiting on the sidelines for markets to come down back in line with fundamentals.

    • I really trade! Here is a trade from this week - The Market is an ETF of the Nasdaq100 Index provided by ishares - CNX1 This was a 2 day Swing trade If you've read the above posts then this is a clear DOUBLE BOTTOM following all the rules mentioned in the posts above ENTRY - Entry was actually set for the high of the Inside bar but the market gapped up and opened at the GREEN horizontal line! which was fine As you can see the DB caused a classic W shape if fulfilled - 2RSI in the <25% Oversold zone = 1 high probability trade potential with target of the swing high of the long leg of the W - as you can see price hit that level this afternoon for a healthy return - This provided a 2R return, "IF" (and we have no control over this) I'd of been triggered in at the high of the Inside bar as planned rather than the gapped entry, the R:R was 4R if stop placed at the swing low or 11R if entry was high of the narrow range IB and stop was at the low of it! - Now in this trade - the intention was the 11R trade but the Gap caused a change of plan THIS IS WHY I TRADE BECAUSE OFTEN THESE TRADES COME OFF INTENDED AS PLANNED - this one didn't but it was still a half decent trade To prove the position - I won't be doing this ever again - very NEARLY got the high! You can SCAN the market EVERY DAY for NARROW RANGE bars - and then when they conform to trading method you employ they offer an ultra high probability trading opportunity with ultra high returns   
    • Hi JLZ You need to investigate the company issuing the said ETP's - There's lots of different ones out there, some buy real assets, so use "synthetic" tracking etc  - they are 100% legit but you have to be certain they won't go bust  Key considerations as you are investing real money into the ETP are: Is the ETP safe in terms of going bust Is you ISA/SIPP/DEALING account provider safe I've traded these products for decades - as long as the ETP provider does not go bust then normal investing/trading risks apply - I've just literally this afternoon taken profits on a Nasdaq100 ETF They came on the scene in the late 90's in the UK and you could track markets not offered by funds at that point - I was in a china ETF in 2000 provided by ishares within my sipp/isa account and was a cheap way of tracking the Chinese market as you didn't have the 5% bid/offer spread and 1% AMC You buy them exactly as you would say BP - If BP goes belly up overnight you're cash is trapped, same would apply here, but as I say if the company is liquid and sound then normal risks apply  
    • Is it possible to go long by selling (short) a leveraged (bear) ETP?
