"The 1982-2000 secular bull market lasted 6,434 calendar days and every single day we could have said "the stock market is about to make a major top."

Chris Ciovacco @CiovaccoCapital

I do nt see this as a 'Major top' .  My view is that we retest SP 3000, with a possible retest of the August lows.  Think it through.....The market assumed that Phase 1 would bring renewed prosperity and trade to the world.  Past earnings have been (in US) quite robust BUT does it support the market at this level, if earnings are say cut by 5% average.....?  The SP is at full stretch valuation wise, and other than LT rates at 1.5% , there may be a correction worth talking about.  

IF NvCv 2019 is going to be 'disruptive' particularly to China 's secondary banks...This will cause lasting problems.....not just a few iphones not bought.  

The Fed has painted itself into a corner.  If it cuts rates, that will actually send the wrong signal to the market that the Fed is worried....In actuality the Fed should have raised rates when it had its chance. given the so called level of US economic activity currently estimated at 1.4% GDP growth ?  Think about that figure 1.4% GDP growth on a stock market that on a p/e basis is in its highest quartile.  

The two ends do nt meet.  

What has been happening is that 'not QE' $$ pumped into the short end has been going straight into SP etc.  If you look at the rest of the world's share indexes they cant follow the US lead, because they have nt the $$$ pushed into the short end through a very accommodating CBank.  

If SP drops even another 50 points there will be calls for a cut in US rates,,,,you can bank on it.....

Buy low .....sell high.

Shorting the U.S. indices is like peeing into the wind ...

doesn't really matter though does it?  Random entry 50/50 cut losers quick let winners run = big profits for you. Can't do that in Vegas. 🚀🌋🧗‍♂️🏇🤬

Left long positions running overnight 😞

Tried shorting in the morning 😞

No money left now 😄

@dmedin

become proficient at finding good entries first, leave the in-trade management skills for later so just cut losers if they don't take off and for trade entries that do stick in a 1:2 take profit order and let it manage itself. but you've heard all this many times over and just keep doing it your own way so carry on 🙄

interesting, I pointed this out this morning, so looks like caused by govt action rather than the virus suddenly exploding.

A new spike in Coronavirus cases.... This latest spike is also likely related to recent efforts to forcibly round up people convalescing at home.

Right, well I have a checklist and I won't enter trades until all the boxes are ticked now.

Been trying to jump on those big price movements, but need to wait for the EMAs to align up first.  Otherwise, who's to say price won't just shoot back up again 😄

Meanwhile, on the side: Bought a call option on S&P 500 @ 3400 September 2020.  Can't go wrong with that 😄 😄 😄

Betting long on Nasdaq over Dow and S&P for the time being offers greater % profit I think. I noticed the indices had been diverging since January. The gap may increase further until Dow 30000.

 

On Monday US markets are closed. Perfect opportunity to increase the volatility to trap us by going down?! Don't know about you guys but I will avoid overnight positions and take whatever profits I can before close each day.

Nasdaq 100 seems to be the most positive of them all.  S&P 500 is a good one for long-term investment.  Wall Street and Germany 30 are the best place to make the most money (or lose the most).  

FTSE 100 is just a horrible mess and Russell 2000 is interesting ... probably good for investing.

I have not studied or traded FTSE before because I always found it to be less popular to US indices and less activity. Just a matter of preference I suppose. The most important question in trading is always "what makes you money".

It just moves in inverse relation to GBP/USD.  Boring really.  The UK economy isn't anywhere near as dynamic as the USA's.  Pays fat dividends though.

You will have paid a lot of  time premium  and vol. for that so whats your break even?   Also what is your delta hedging strategy ?  Or are you  short  SP against your call already ?  

Use your option as a pivot.  Look for sell points when RSI o/bought,  then buy back when RSI drops back.   To get options right you have to work hard,,,Options are like rotting fish ...If they start to drift away from you, you have time and price against you.  

Your worst nightmare is a market which drifts lower with volatility dying on you...and time and price... So you need to actively protect your position....

Best of luck 😅

No need to pivot, swivel, dance on one foot or do a handstand.  Just buy low and sell high.  That's all there is to it 😊

What?
 

I could close it right now for an enormous £6 profit.🇺🇸🤖

Its not for me to say.....But if you keep your option you need to decide what the range of the market is,, i.e.  SP top has been 3380 .  So you need to sell spot against your call.....If the maket flies upwards out of the range you are covered by your call.....If the market drops you need to hold your short to protect your call option....Its hard work to make it work esp. as you have bought a call at the top end of the market range and with high volatiility, .....

    • Many months ago in the old renamed 'covid and the economy' thread I posted a piece from Virologist Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche (DMV, PhD) who said that virology 101 states you never start a mass vaccination programme in the middle of a pandemic because of the high risk of Antibody-Dependent Enhancement (ADE). In a new paper he says the threat is that mass vaccination at a time of high infectious pressure causes the virus to mutate within the vaccinated into variants of concern (VoCs) and eventually super variants, that due to ADE and viral immune escape, can lead to surges of infections and mass deaths.  Furthermore, the vaccinated are in greater danger of infection and death because their natural immune systems are suppressed by the Covid-19 vaccines. Collectively, the vaccinated are a threat to both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated alike. Why the ongoing mass vaccination experiment drives a rapid evolutionary response of SARS-CoV-2 (geertvandenbossche.org)   Meanwhile, Facts that don't fit the narrative will not be tolerated.The Govt will be your only source of 'truth'.''Sky News Australia SUSPENDED from YouTube''.YouTube has reportedly banned Sky News in Australia from posting to their 1.85M followers for allegedly breaching the platforms Covid misinformation policy. BREAKING: Sky News Australia SUSPENDED from YouTube - Rebel News   And Facebook Covid vaccine Fact-Checkers are funded by vaccine companies. I suppose this is to ensure that people only get to see the 'right' facts.        
    • The new CDC Massachusetts study is drawing a lot of attention. The CDC is using it to promote mutant risk but there is a lot more to the story. - 74% of 882 people infected with coronavirus in the US outbreak were fully immunised but only 50% of US are fully vaxed suggests the vaccines are making people more susceptible to infection (which indicates vaccine ADE). - The viral load was found to be the same for the vaccinated and non-vaxed alike which would suggest the vaccine was not offering any protection at all (which indicates vaccine ADE). - Most of the 74% were symptomatic, such a high ratio of symptomatic/unsymptomatic for the delta variant would suggest the vaccine was compromising the immune system making symptoms worse (which indicates vaccine ADE).   Meanwhile, a CDC Internal Document: “Universal masking is essential to reduce transmission of the Delta variant” This is nonsense, masks can only stop droplet borne virus not virus as aerosol. An infected person will breath out 50,000 with each breath and they float on air, travel much more than 2 meters, and around perspex screens, and through the weave of a mask. UK lifts mask mandates at the peak of new cases ... and immediately the curve collapses.   .  
    • Main stream media are waking up to the fact all is not right concerning the vaccines. The fully vaxxed are the majority of new cases. No one is as yet coming out and saying vaccine ADE but all the indications are pointing that way. So far all the blame is being heaped solely on mutants but that can't be the whole story. Vaccine ADE enhances the virus while compromising the immune system. CNN @CNN ''Vaccination alone won't stop the rise of variants and in fact could push the evolution of strains that evade their protection, researchers warned.''  Vaccination is not enough by itself to stop the spread of variants, study finds - CNN    'Study finds 74% of outbreak sufferers were fully vaccinated'. (US is only 50% vaxed) Outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 Infections, Including COVID-19 Vaccine Breakthrough Infections, Associated with Large Public Gatherings — Barnstable County, Massachusetts, July 2021 | MMWR (cdc.gov) ('Breakthrough infections'' is a term meaning infections in vaccinated people)   CNBC @CNBC 'CDC says 74% of people infected in Massachusetts Covid outbreak were fully vaccinated.' JUST IN - 'More than 110,000 breakthrough cases in the US' (Bloomberg)   And from SAGE yesterday evening; ''JUST IN - SAGE, the UK's health "expert panel," warns next Covid "super mutant variant" could kill up to one in three people, and the "vaccine roll-out may even speed up mutant strain's emergence." (Daily Mail) The last half of that headline is a clear indication they at least suspect vaccine ADE. SAGE: Next Covid variant could kill one in three people | Daily Mail Online   Safe vaccines, the ones that completed their long term trials before roll out don't cause 'super mutants'. We are starting to see why Dr Robert Malone was calling for the vax programme to be stopped immediately in the video posted above.   Pfizer now saying vaccines will not be enough so as well as perpetual booster jabs they are developing oral antivirals. (oh - like Ivermectin you mean - can't use that, it only cost a few cents) Pfizer Inc.  @pfizer  Alongside vaccines, success against #COVID19 will likely require #antiviral treatments for those who contract the virus. We’ve started a Phase 2/3 trial to evaluate a potential oral therapy that will enroll over 2,000 participants infected with SARS-CoV-2:   So the vaccines don't actually work then except to incapacitate your immune system and create super mutants.   And in another new twist Social Media are quietly starting to remove the warnings they habitually place on posts that might, even slightly, be construed as anti-vax. 🤔   .edit bad pic crop.
