Germany 30 poised with its breeches down too.  I am using a laptop screen so my charts look cramped.

I was awake at the time because I had an appointment, but I didn’t have any comment to make about it. It was just a small move down by the European indices unsupported elsewhere. Often during those hours there is a contraction in volatility, but occasionally there is an easy low risk entry. The Dax made its high for the week at that time last week.

Volatility is such fun. If you are on the right side of it , of course.

Dow@ 27239, will go higher expect 27550+/- 1%. Then hang on to your shorts as it's big swinging cahones time. If there is no more stimulus, saving the Fed largesse then watch the Dow sink 3-5% as retrenchment may be the order of the day. With stimulus expect a gain, then retrenchment, then exuberance, then retrenchment, then a small nervous breakdown....... It's as if the Dow has become the schizophrenic naughty cousin of the S&P. Today is the last day before the delayed August break for Congress so it's pooh or bust for legislators, who will naturally blame each other if they fail to agree.  Ahh the competence of governments.......

But isnt it August break is cancelled till there is an agreement on the bill?

Indices have been money-losers all week on the hourly chart.  A lot of FX pairs have been losers too, unless you like counter-trend trading.  Commodities have all sold off like MFers.

Not been a good week.  Oh well, there's always next.

If folks did a staggered entry and exit with amounts they are comfortable with they would be dancing to the Hokey Pokey instead.

 

 

Everybody form a circle
Put your left foot in
Your left foot out
Your left foot in
And shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey
And turn yourself around

Now put your right foot in
Your right foot out
Right foot in
Then you shake it all about
And then you do the hokey pokey
Turn yourself around
That's what it's all about

    • 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?        
    • Hi, thank you for bringing the topic , I personally didn't know about this type of asset class. I googled a bit and found the basics about ETPs. They seem to be very interesting but also oriented to professionals as some of them might not be regulated by the FCA as per link below: https://www.fca.org.uk/consumers/exchange-traded-products Could you recommend any book on the subject that we could read? Also is there any list of pros and cons against the usual share dealing, CFDs and Spread Betting accounts that we could point to?
