At some stage in the near future Govt Covid aid payments to companies will come to an end and we will start to see just who and how many will actually survive the lockdown, the answer may come as something of a shock.

S&P looking to the monthly R1 and weekly chart resistance (red) 3233.

Dax and Dow H1 heading for the daily R1

And here it is on a five minute chart.  The 200 SMA is clearly useless because price moves up and down and crosses it constantly.   The same thing happens on daily charts of stocks.  Even buying when price > 200 daily SMA and selling when price < 200 daily SMA isn't particularly useful.  In fact, I can hardly spot any 'patterns' at all in daily stocks any more.

why would you automatically assume that a 200 sma would be as relevant on a 5 min chart as it is on a daily? you need the experiment to see what ma might actually be being used on each time frame you look at.

Looks like we're got months of more-or-less sideways price action to look forward to, boys and girls.  Lots of false breakouts and money to be lost :)

Indices have just taken an absolutely incredible dump.

Yea, I didn't see that until much later.  So much for the 'Twitteratti' being on the pulse.

Hasn't been able to stay above 200 daily SMA for more than a couple of days ... utterly hopeless]

And now President ****-for-brains is gearing up for war with China, when he's not declaring war on fellow Americans :D

There was a confluence of potential resistance on the US indices yesterday, although I only caught a fraction of the move on the Dax and Nikkei.

The S&P clipping its high in the previous quarter as well as its weekly R1 and daily R2.

The Dow clipping its yearly pivot and weekly R1.

As always an evidence based assessment of market conditions is a precondition to opening a trade.

    • Everyone, it seems accepts the result of the recent  US elections, except the President and half of the GOP.  Convinced of his own meritless delusions of fraud and other voting chicanery, he now pursues a policy of obfuscation, denial of service and general spite while mad dog Giuliani and even madder Sidney Powell pursue laughable cases in various courts in the vainglorious expectation that 6 million perfectly legal votes will somehow be annulled/ cancelled and cease to  exist. This is not to be, though the only realists in the GOP are keeping their own counsel on the subject, thereby enabling the Presidents' persistent delusions. That's the problem when you believe your own propaganda, it is easy to become confused with reality. Apart from hiding rotten fish behind the radiators of the White house and carving his name on the Resolute desk, soon to be ex president Trump is doing his best to make the transition for "sleepy" Joe as difficult as he can. This includes a tacit refusal to provide more stimulus.  He has instructed Steve Munchkin to end funding for various emergency programs to the tune of $438 billion., thereby hampering the incoming Treasury secretary before he/she even walks through the door. This has rightly upset Jerome Powell who has the interest of the US economy as his overarching priority. Unfortunately, the President is unmoved by the needs of the American public as he feels they have betrayed him.  Why reward treachery? Trump is known for his heartless ardour when crushing those he deems as unworthy, which in this case is the American people as a whole, overcome as he is with nihilistic zeal.  Playing golf while ignoring a health crisis , at the same time as full denial in the face of outright defeat, does not an effective president make. Indeed, might I venture his very legacy as president and future GOP kingmaker hang very much in the balance, indeed may have been irretrievably  lost. Like Trump, lost with nowhere to go. Though he will surely be welcomed in Turkey, Russia, not to mention North Korea.  The markets really want to break higher and gap up to new ATH's but Trumps intransigence, denial (of Covid and the election results) and general spite ( no new stimulus)are causing a state of intermarket bearish divergence, with the SP and Nasdaq refusing to break into new ATHs(all time highs).  I guess we will have to wait until he is forced out come 20th Jan. 
    • Good article (new) on strategy planning and testing from Steve Burns. https://www.newtraderu.com/2020/10/25/how-to-create-backtest-and-optimize-a-trading-strategy/ "A trading strategy is the process used to enter and exit positions in a market based on quantified signals on when to buy and sell. A trading strategy will have trading plan to express a methodology that defines a trader’s return goals, risk tolerance, and time frame. A successful strategy should have an edge expressed in how trades are entered and managed to maximize gains and minimize losses."
