Yes, where is the inflation. Euro zone CPI 1.4% against the 1.5% expected (released today).

Powell was too eager to continue the rate rising, normalisation and forced to back pedal, I think the odds of an expected rate cut  this year are up over 40%.

Ger manu PMI was 44.1 against 44.7 expected (deepening contraction) released this morning.

US manu ISM expected 54, release this afternoon.

That's quite brave @Turnip230248  trading straight into the US market open as you will usually get some bouncing around at first, tends to be better to allow things to settle a bit and wait for one side to take control. So your actual long entry was well judged with the bulls showing real intent with the 3 bar spike then hammering in on the pullback.

Yes -it is better to wait. I usually do so but jumped the gun this time. Usually better to wait for a "whippy" move to play out before getting in. In fact, it usually pays to mark in hi/low of "whip" and wait for price to trade out either side. - requires patience., but usually worth it.

@Turnip230248, there is a good exercise to help with recognising when the rhythm of the market is too whippy and when it has calmed and moving in a more controlled manner. I've heard it mentioned a few times before but it came up again today to remind me.

On demo zoom in as close as you can go and enlarge the price scale so the current candle on a one hour chart takes up as much of the screen as possible, get a feel for how price pulses up and down on the current candle. Try to read it and anticipate, hitting the buy or sell and exiting over and over. It's a practice exercise on market movement and not a trading style so you use it to learn to gauge the current pace of rhythm of the market in order to help with trading on your actual time frame.

More SSI, this time from FXCM;  S&P 85% short, Dow 86% short.

Now yes of course price might just reverse here ...  but also it might not, how can 85-86% be so sure, it doesn't actually make any sense. They have all seen a red line and automatically presumed price is going to reverse on it. If I was smart money I know exactly what I'd do.

Dax made the running yesterday while the others keep in touch with recent highs. After the good news on the trade talks the inevitable downer that one major sticking point was China's insistence that all tariffs be removed before signing.

Some initial sell off in Dax on the European open this morning but with all 4 posting green daily candles yesterday starting today anticipating continuation. 

H4 charts with S&P daily.

Was just comparing the SSI data from FXCM with the COT and the Dow daily chart.

Both the FXCM and COT confer that small speculators and retail (sameish) decided that the week starting  2nd of Jan was the time to go short on the Dow and have been flogging that horse ever since.

Large speculators were reducing there long exposure through Jan but started piling back in increasing long exposure again from the start of Feb, but not retail, oh no, they knew better. Gulp.

The indices got a boost overnight from China president Xi reporting the trade talks are going well (he does't usually comment). 

US NFP today 1:30 and the word on the street is it could be a big number after last months dismal 20k which was due to a freezing Feb. The mid-week ADP was 129k and the forecast for today is 172k.

Presenting a guest appearance in the charts today, the AUS 200. 

Daily charts and all, except the AUS, are itching to go higher.

Interesting times, Dow and S&P fast approaching all time highs but also entering into triple top territory.

image.png.133131f76a196cd29d562b9ab3e93a34.png

The crowd are all sitting on shorts so the contrarian is obviously looking hard at going long.

A US/China deal could be immanent (as it has been for the last 6 months, meh) and then there is the inverted yield curve *bites nails*.

But here's an interesting chart, ISABELNET @ISABELNET_SA  "Historically, a recession begins when the real Fed Funds rate exceeds GDP growth. We are far from that right now. So, this cycle should not end any time soon."

This would make sense as high US GDP and low CPI is not recession territory, the opposite in fact.

As ever when looking for a longer term trade price approaching boundaries is not the time to jump in, the time to jump in is when price is leaving the boundary, whichever direction that might be.

    • They caused me a loss of £10k as I was long and planning to keep my trades. Anyway, looks like the SEC is going to go after them and to be honest I'm glad because I found it extreme on us small investors to lose all our money because they delisted xrp. https://coil.com/p/XRP_Productions/SEC-Sues-Crypto-Exchanges-for-Delisting-XRP-and-Hurting-Innocent-Investors/VfGRw237d        
    • As you rightly say, based on their decision making affect on existing customer positions, faith in IG being a decent ethical organisation is shattered - I would never have thought a company who had such a good reputation and project such s customer inclusive approach could **** its loyal customers on this manner; please email their Compliance department if not already done in case of future litigation
