haha, I been using it for many years longer than you even heard of spread betting so I know just your usual bs. The chart is pretty obvious.

 

You don't have to be mean.  We are all capable of producing charts with indicators lined up and looking good.  That's the f*king easy bit.  Trying to trade it without benefit of hindsight is a different proposition altogether.

Yes, it's f*king obvious even without Williams %R slapped on top of it :)

please correct me if I'm wrong, and of course it depends on the horizon, but didn't give Williams %R quite a few false signals in Feb/March?

sure, but was that not a period of down trend in which case you should have been looking to sell the indicator rally peaks not automatically buy the troughs

That's the point though isn't it, the indicator could have been on the chart the entire time and would have said the same thing. I don't trade the daily chart but have always had W%P or Stoch (smoothing set to 1) on the charts I do trade.

okay, and what tells us that we're not in a downtrend now?

you should only be concerned about the overbought/sold levels if you have fine tuned the indy to use them, otherwise just look to the turning points. In a strong trend there are few fakes.

If you are long in a strong uptrend you want to see the indy chopping in and out of overbought continually and for as long as possible, that's what it does in a strong uptrend.

2 x MAs of your choice sloping and in order is a good trend indicator.

Sure we maybe in the start of a downtrend but 4 bear candles doesn't make for one.

Looking at stochastics (14, 3, 3) - they make sense when %D diverges from the price in an extreme area (%D fails to make a new high/low in overbought/oversold when the price does), then you sell or buy when %K crosses below it.

Is that right :) 

Any use for stochastics when %D and %K are not in oversold/overbought zones?

Just to be clear with W%R, in an uptrend you are only looking for troughs to buy and are ignoring all peaks and hoping, after you have bought, that it stay in or around overbought forever.

In a downtrend you are only looking for peaks to sell and and ignoring all troughs then hoping it stays in oversold forever.

When in a range and your MAs are horizontal then you can consider alternative buying troughs and selling peaks.

Sure but there is no single recipe for the use of any indicator that will mean it will always work, stoch is good for showing divergences but so is RSI and macd.

On slow stoch settings in a strong uptrend stoch will just show flatline in overbought and show no dips to buy at all so that's no use.

If that's the case you need to fine tune it to show dips to buy to join in the trend, also some stoch indys have 3 settings, signal on k/d crossover, signal on k exit obos, signal on d exit obos. Take your pick.

FTSE and S&P find support at the monthly S1.

Dow tested the pivot during the Asian session though the London open will likely initially check lower to find current buyers in waiting.

Dax looks again at the weekly chart resistance level.

FTSE and S&P daily.

Dax and Dow M15.

not following ASX very closely...  why has it under-performed so much...?  given in particular the relatively strong China recovery...?  are you seeing reasons for breakout to below 50% retracement..?

Uncertainty. The state of Victoria including Melbourne went into it's second lock down around 7th July and is still in it.

Well, I do not know how to reliably trade 15 min charts.

When you backtest on historical data, you don't factor in news and events.  So trading news events on a minute scale is something you can probably only practice in demo.

15 minutes on DAX, got shafted lol

 I have been up the last 12 hours and have scaled out of a small short on the Dax about a dozen times.

When I am shaken into something it is usually FOMO, and when I am shaken out of something it is usually because the analysis of support/resistance and price action was not very good to begin with.

I find it useful to keep a visual reminder on the chart in the form of price alarms and it helps in assessing the risk/return at any given price.

Oh and if I my attention is on the charts then I don't have time to post here.

simple, don't trade the news or market openings but wait til the indecision whipsaw is over.

    • I'll try to be concise: Dent was in 2010 calling for the mother of all stock market crashes - so were Elliott Wave International in fact EWI have been call for a massive collapse since 1986!  Some of what he says is accurate - deflation for example - the reason QE has not caused inflation is because it was issued in a deflationary cycle The crash he talks about won't happen - I listened to dent and EWI back in 2010 and I choose to do my own research as other things i was investigating suggested the opposite to what they were both spouting Read my Time Cycles page, it explains the deflationary/inflationary cycles - proven with 220+ years of stock market history behind the reasoning The deflationary cycle he refers to ended late 2016, its now inflationary according to my calcs and research and my prediction is stock market is going upwards until the mid 2030's when it will crash and top out - yet Dent still thinks its in play Up until then we might get a 1987 style crash event but overall the corrections will be modest not massive and they will all be quickly surpassed I don't listen to anyone out there - I trade independently according to my methods so I don't need to be buying and holding and if I'm wrong so be it - it won't affect my trading as the market dictates my positions, not my expectations - since 2010 this has work exceptionally well, where if I'd of followed EWI and Dents forecasts I'd of lost everything in 2010! I've no thoughts on Gold other than it is inflationary hedge - as mentioned on another thread when the stock market is inflationary (which I think started 2017) then price correlation backwards to last time it was inflationary (1982-2000) gold was subdued    
    • Thanks @Caseynotes. Do you think the time of the daily close bears any significance. When viewing the hourly charts, the volume and movements seem to be higher in GMT "working hours" and then slow down overnight. Therefore, are other countries trading on GMT I wonder?
    • Saw a snippet on Sky news complaining that the Lateral Flow test must be faulty because it wasn't picking up as many positives as the PCR. Quite an unbelievable misinterpretation of the data on the number of false positives made by the PCR. Not surprising really as the fake positive numbers generated by the PCR are the only thing driving project fear and lockdowns. Meanwhile, in order to stem the flow of staff needing to self isolate following a PCR false positive the NHS are switching to ...  er, the lateral flow test.         Dr Clare Craig  @ClareCraigPath Deaths are not climbing commensurate with cases. Either COVID got less deadly (despite inc hospital admissions) or we have two measure a) a community positive rate off the charts with false positives b) a hospital rate (likely to inc some real COVID) which is at a steady state     .
