There's perfect money-losing market behaviour for you.  At least six fake breakouts, three on either side.  Enjoy losing money when betting either way :D

FTSE 100 hammers the brakes, comes screeching to a halt and does a massive 180 turn before zooming off in the direction it came from!  (Phew, I wonder if it left skidmarks ...)

Most breakouts of a range fail, most reversals of a trend fail.

Holy smokes, the S&P 500 is back above 3300.  I sold a September 3300 call option a while ago thinking there was no chance of it making money.  Crikes! Just goes to show you should hold on to your options till the bitter end.1317753698_US500_20200811_11_57.thumb.png.c5ea11d20aab3d5733b5a2893abbec54.png

God **** I don't understand these markets 

Headline news British economy suffered record collapse in the second quarter

FTSE rises fast from open¬† and I drop 500 in about 25 minutes!¬†¬†ūüėĖ

Looks like one of the biggest bullish 30min candles in weeks. 

That's it I am staying away from the 'Open', don't know diddlysquat about it

the market is not the economy, the companies that make up the ftse are big internationals and have their biggest market in the US so ftse and dax will follow the US indices which are an expression of future confidence in the US economy and so the US consumer. The UK market is not that important to them.

after I posted that I check the 250, that's much more UK focused I'd imagine. That gapped down

yes, smaller companies. also you are right to avoid the open when there is always turmoil with big volumes going through in both directions, rather wait for things to settle and one way direction to the next level is established.

With higher time frames and looser stops you're less beholden to 'events', this is evidenced by backtesting using a purely mechanical approach and simply following the signals.  Responding to events is a mug's game anyway because there will always be 'unexpected' announcements...

lol I'm the opposite and find it far harder to trade individual stocks.  

Mainly because of the constant gapping.

It has been following the European indices higher, but with a 400 point rise after its close I think some buyers may be setting themselves up for a disappointment.

    • 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. ¬† ¬† ¬†
