A drop on the hour trading on Sunday but should be an interesting day as price levels still at the recent range highs and a reversal bar on the S&P weekly. This week sees US PMIs tues, Cad rate statement wed,  and US Non Farm Payroll on Friday, also on Friday is Fed chair Powell's economic outlook speech.

If the GBP is tanking and FTSE rising then somebody is loving British exports.......But I would say inflation is a big issue Britain imports so much we cant have a weak pound for too long now

yes the pound is suffering as a no deal Brexit looks increasingly likely and could yet retest the lows that came after the referendum back in 2016 (when everyone thought Brexit meant no deal anyway). We have the quarterly UK inflation report this Wednesday should be interesting though it's been fairly low and steady around 2% for this year so far.

Pause candle for Dow yesterday, still at recent range high so anticipating a test of Friday's high 26550 otherwise will need to find support. Ftse caught up with the others yesterday and sits at recent resistance while Dax hangs onto the small gain it made on Friday.

S&P sits just below range high needs a spur for one direction or the other, must be about time for a Trump tweet.

You must know something that I don't, I tried trading Wall St yesterday and got bent over a barrel.  Maybe you're just clever enough to know that analysis is easier than actual trading :D


don't trade when high impact news is about to come out, why do you think i bother to look them up and even post them every morning, apart from that it's just a case of tracking price though the levels. 

going back to level 2 data there was another vid which explained quite well using l2 to find support and resistance levels, real orders get clustered at specific zones (coinciding with obvious chart support/resistance levels) , once price breaks through them there is relatively little standing in it's way until the next level. if instead price is rejected at a level it turns and heads back looking for more support (buyers or sellers) if it's to have another go, i have mentioned all this dozens of times before but you know how it is.

L2 data 'n' stuff ... yikes.  Can't I just get away with a quick Fibo? :D


fibs are used by some big traders who can move markets sure but nothing like the number who use obvious chart based support and resistance levels which, as mentioned above, also correlate with order clusters on the L2 and also with options futures positioning.

ah right sorry, i thought you were just trying to predict the past. you'd get even better results if you used higher time frames 🤸‍♀️


I could always just post a chart everyday and say something along the lines of 'It might go here or here, but this is where it is now' - that would surely be useful :D

na, you should do what i do instead, so look at the daily chart, what colour was yesterday's candle,

if it was a directional candle today will probably be the same and same colour, less probable but possible it will be a reversal or a pause bar

if yesterday was a pause bar then today could be either directional continuation or a reversal candle

if yesterday was a directional reversal candle today will probably be directional continuation but may be a pause or a reversal.

Then go down to the H1 chart, he who controls the pivot controls short term direction.

 if price is above the daily pivot look for continuation to R1, expect further continuation until you see a reversal.

Same if price is below the pivot, look for continuation to S1, expect further continuation until you see a reversal.


so not really looking too far to the left at all.

The charts remain bullish to start the week, focus will be increasingly drawn to the will they/won't they Fed rate decision next week (Wed 18th). With the all time high just ahead for the Dow may see a pause candle today in contemplation but the recent trend is clearly up with moderate resistance next at 27060.

    • Gold falls back into support as Brent crude pushes into Fibonacci resistance Gold falls back into key support, while Brent crude has rallied up into Fibonacci resistance in its bid to regain previous highs. Source: Bloomberg    Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 27 July 2021  Gold drifts back into key support level Gold has been on the back foot once again, with price moving back into the key $1790 support level. A break below that level would bring a bearish picture into play following a period of consolidation. However, with price typically managing to post a short rebound from this level, it is worthwhile expecting another move higher until we see $1790 break. Source: ProRealTime   Brent crude rallies back into Fibonacci resistance Brent crude has been on the rise since a pullback into the wider 76.4% Fibonacci retracement level at $67.60. That rally has brought us back into yet another 76.4% level at $74.12. The wider uptrend points towards a likely push up through this level in a bid to regain the previous peaks of $76.30 and $77.57. However, whether that will come in a straight line remains to be seen. For now, we need to see whether price respects that Fibonacci resistance level or simply pushes through. To the downside, any pullback would need to break the $72.14 level to bring a more bearish short-term outlook. Until then, there is a good chance we see further upside come into play.

    • Astrazeneca Q2 revenue is expected to show strong growth, although an increased cost base will pressure underlying earnings. Source: Bloomberg   Shares AstraZeneca Price Revenue Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization Technical analysis  Shaun Murison | Senior Market Analyst, Johannesburg | Publication date: Tuesday 27 July 2021  When are the AstraZeneca results? AstraZeneca, the biopharmaceutical company, earnings release date is scheduled for 27 July 2021. The scheduled results will cover the groups second quarter (Q2) and half-year earnings. What to expect from AstraZeneca results? While a large Covid-19 vaccine rollout will have boosted revenue for the group, it would have done little for underlying earnings due to the company selling the product as a non-profit item. Consensus estimates derived from Refinitiv data arrives at the following expectations for Q2 of 2021: Revenue $7.530 billion (+20%) year on year (YoY) Earnings before interest tax depreciation amortisation (EBITDA) $2.233 billion (-10.75% YoY) Earnings per share (EPS) $0.93 (-3.01% YoY) What is expected to be accretive to future earnings for the group (although may weigh in the short term) is the groups acquisition of biopharmaceutical business Alexion, which was concluded on 21 July 2021, shortly after the reporting quarter. Find out more on how to buy, sell and short AstraZeneca shares How to trade AstraZeneca results A Refinitiv poll of 29 analysts maintain a long-term average rating of ‘buy’ for AstraZeneca (as of 26 July 2021), with 10 of these analysts recommending a strong buy, 16 recommending a buy, 1 hold, 1 sell and 1 strong sell recommendation on the stock. Source: IG AstraZeneca share price – technical analysis view Source: IG charts   The share price of AstraZeneca continues to trade in an uptrend which has been in place since the beginning of 2021. The price has however started to correct from near-term highs. Traders respecting the longer-term uptrend will prefer to keep a long bias to trades targeting a retest of the 8770 level, provided that the price does not move to break the confluence of both trend line and horizontal support at the 7800 level. A break of the 7800 level would instead suggest the uptrend to be broken. In summary AstraZeneca results are scheduled for release on 27 July 2021 Q2 revenue of $7.530 billion is expected Q2 EBITDA of $2.223 billion is expected EPS of $0.93 is expected The average broker rating for AstraZeneca is ‘buy’ The share price of AstraZeneca is currently in a short term correction of a longer-term uptrend
