Yet another day where the indices shi!t the bed.


AND oil

AND silver

AND gold

AND FX pairs against the dollar

Just f*king great

One may have expected the Dow to surge forward in anticipation of another stimulus. Seems to be already priced in. In fact, looks like there is more anxiety and caution than the usual blind optimism. Looks like one piece of really bad news could set off an avalanche. If an extra trillion or two is not inspiring the markets higher then a suitable hedge down may be in order, n'est pas?  Plus Brent can't seem to break $45 no matter how hard it tries. Even China is selling it's distillate stocks as they see the plateau and surmise things are going to get worse before they get better and are taking the money now. Have you been counting on a "V"? Hedge your position, volatility may well return with a vengeance.

Just a different point of view.

with indices dropping around the world, thoughts of US ones after the opening bell? Anyone do a recent correlation study?

Naturally I am late to the party today and shorted the FTSE at 6001. 

I should sell a training course. I'll give you all my trades and you take the opposite position, guaranteed win for you 😄

It looks like the earnings release from Facebook, Amazon and Apple have been well received, but the Nasdaq has been skittish around these levels recently.NAS100H1.thumb.jpg.c23d8f052aff7a78d3e01c1f785e0a4e.jpg

The Dow has started to ignore the Nikkei, but is listening to the Dax. Will the 20 period MA which has defined it so well continue to do so?

And more scaling out. That is a yearly pivot BTW.

Shaken out to a "don't care" amount.

Long S&P 500 too, as it made a similar move as Nasdaq last night.  Wall Street lagging behind 😘

I just realized that the correlation tables I use are not responsive enough. The coder had 90 minutes, 90 5 minutes and so forth, but I have changed it to 20 periods.

This is what it looks like now with the S&P500 and Dow in sync and the Dow and Nasdaq being birds of no feather for the last 20 four hours and 20 days.

The U.S. indices have recovered nicely but the FTSE 100 looks like it is about to sell off.

    • Trialling Stops please, a must for the ISA!
    • Volume profile, depth of market, orderbook, VWAP, VPVR, VPSV... all the basic things needed which for some reason are disabled.. seems odd that you don't want your clients to see this information? Even FXCM, OANDA, Pepperstone, ICmarkets, FXPRO & many more not listed all allow you to see this and have access to this vital information. ProRealTime v11.. It's about 2 years overdue now... frustrating not only having out of date features but more so when trying to back test things as it's limited on v10.3 to a maximum of 100k units.. that means with every day passing, I lose a day's worth of data.. PRT v11 allows you to have 1m unit backtest.. Also.. Custom, multiple take profits.. allow me to set a desired amount, for example.. ** points or **% at 10 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 20 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 30 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 40 pips away from entry.. Have a look at cTrader.. they do a perfect example of this, in advanced take profit section.
