The indices just pulling back a bit after a lack of much detail from either side after the end of the US-China. Fed minutes and members reiterating a dovish shift in outlook and both Powell and Bullard to speak today (around 5:40 pm) expected to continue that theme.

All looking for short term support this morning with a view to another leg up.

So, after a market open that was more akin to a NFP release Dax now approaching short term resistance. Will be looking for a capture of 10863 and continuation upward.

The Dow (and others) at a significant position on the daily chart, a break to the upside will throw it back into the higher band range while a break to the downside ...

Friday not a good day for major breakouts but given the Feds new respect for the emotional turmoil of the markets and so their easing up of a systematic rate rise approach and given an easing of US-China trade tensions further upside is anticipated.

But, as ever, new news can make the markets reverse on a pin head so as always, be ready for anything.

All looking poised for a break higher. Interesting Reuters report this morning that the markets are pricing in no further rate hikes this year at all and that plans are being made for China's president Xi to visit Washington latter this month.

Very similar story to yesterday, a morning attempt to break higher failed except for Ftse which was soon reeled back in. 

Yesterday saw the break upward after the US open, same may happen again today though being Friday any move may be subdued.

Fairly flat morning session, Dow remains close to the short term highs still looking for a push into the upper band range or a deeper search for more support, looking towards the US open for a sign either way.

Here we are again, Dow poised for a break high. Mon and Tue saw the same thing but each time the London session pushed down strongly only to see the US session send price back up to toe the line.

Another round of G20 meetings starting tomorrow. Do they ever tire of those, why on earth do they need so many?

Dow pushing higher on the US open, may be getting that break higher out of consolidation that's been looking likely since Monday.

@Kodiak, that's what we should be looking for, tight trading ranges can only lead to one thing and that's a breakout, don't mind which way, if the bulls win price will march up, bears win then it's down. But the important thing is price must leave that old battle ground in search of new resting orders, it takes extra special effort to drag price back into a rejected large time frame trading range.

Coming up to US close and the Dow break up looks clean so far so odds in favour of Dax following suit tomorrow am.

The Dow break looks for continuation, Nikkei tries to secure a similar break, Dax looks to be about to make a break of it's own while Ftse has some catching up to do.

Dow got a good boost yesterday around 8:30 pm on reports Trump was contemplating rolling back China tariffs, the market didn't care those rumours were refuted less than an hour later.

A zoom out on the daily just to remind ourselves of the overall picture. Into the 4th week of up trend off the low, as is pointed out by Kyle in the APAC brief, where this new next higher low (if that's what it's to be) is placed is important.

The PA for Dow between Oct and the start of Dec was large range and the bulls have worked hard to get price back into that range, can they keep it there?

As mentioned this morning re Dow Oct to early Dec trading range, bulls so far keeping Dow back in the box after a bear challenge to support level, tomorrow should see a try for higher before another low test.

German manufacturing PMI falls below 50 signalling contraction, first time since Nov 2014  (8:30 am,  49.9 vs 51.5 expected).  Dax rises on the news -  why. Because it is so fully intent on shadowing the Dow.

    • @HPbrand, The long term value of Bitcoin is what ever the world deems necessary. What this is I do not know. In terms of chances that Bitcoin goes to zero or pushed to zero is low in my personal view. If it was going to have failed and crashed then it would have done so after the parabolic and insane $20k price spike. I am not saying it cannot go to zero if something better comes along but until that happens I do not see Bitcoin going to 0 anytime soon.  I find that the more you read on Crypto and learn about it, understand it better the less you will become sceptical about it. I could argue that I am sceptical of something which is inside of Government control. Are the politicians in power any more wiser or intelligent than other people in society? I find the brightest minds do not work for Government. They want to be paid handsomely and therefore you will find the most intellectual beings working for the private sector or for themselves (self employed).  If you are trading based on price action then you need to remove your personal emotions about Crypto and your personal views about it and just trade based on price action and use the same signals / indicators you would for any other asset such as Commodities, Indices, etc.  Some of the books which I read which really changed my thinking on Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain were: Digital Gold (The Untold Story of Bitcoin) by Nathaniel Popper Blockchain (Blueprint for a New Economy) by Melanie Swan The Business Blockchain by William Mougayar Blockchain Revolution by Don Tapscott and Alex Tapscott The Book of Satoshi (The Collected Writings of Bitcoin Creator Satoshi Nakamoto) by Phil Champagne Cryptoassets (The Innovative Investors Guide to Bitcoin and Beyond) by Chris Burniske and Jack Tatar If you get a chance then read some of these books if not all. This will increase your knowledge of the area rather than relying on media garbage that gets spurned out by journalists who know very little about the subject area. These books really opened up my mind and gave me information that helped me to understand Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain better.  Now acquiring knowledge and trading Cryptocurrencies are two different things. This is where a lot of people are letting their personal opinions, emotions and views get in the way of their trading decisions. If at any given time Cryptos are the 'Strongest Trending Assets' either on the 'long' side of 'short' side then surely the better traders who want to maximise their profits and achieve the greatest performance possible would seriously consider trading that asset. In my view they would do so using the same trading plan, trading strategy and trading system they use for any other asset. This is where a lot of people let their personal views cloud their trading judgement. 
    • You talk about herd immunity and social distancing is imposed. You see the problem? Summer officially starts in June. Everyone has the freewill to believe what they want. Just watch how this panic progress. I said what I said in 2020.
    • Hello I am new to trading and hopefully this is not a silly question. I have placed a order for a US company stock at the price which was displayed at the time. why isn't this order executing and it just seems to stay in the orders? Am I doing something wrong? As the price of the stock keeps rising I have to keep increasing my buy price which is really annoying.
