Meanwhile, oil is in terminal decline as the world moves towards renewable energy.

meanwhile the world can't even get off coal let alone oil let alone gas. Germany spent 10 billion over 10 years on renewables only to find what they really needed to build was 2 gas pipelines to Russia.

JESS ........TWO BARKS FOR BUY     ONE BARK FOR SELL   ???

That is the 50% retrace for  the Dow and S&P. 

It's the opposite, I don't think I'm cut out for day trading.  I still would have been better off keeping a position open from Christmas, even now.  I zoomed out to the day chart and the overall pictu

They've got a plan to get off coal now.

If it's true that China and India will consume coal and oil for decades ... half the world will probably be uninhabitable by that time ... they might need to consider their options :D

yeah yeah yeah. and in the 1970's we were told categorically by scientists that within 50 years most coastal areas would be under 20 feet of water lol. Just goes to show how corrupted science has become by the money of lobby groups and NGOs with a political agenda. you are being lied to systematically and on a massive scale. if they control what you think they control what you do.

Nasdaq 100 and Wall Street not singing from the same hymn sheet today 🧐

Nasdaq has been doing that since January. Gutted I didn't go long on Nasdaq today, went with a short on Dow which I thought was more probable.  Too late for that trade today.

Hopefully Dow ends lower by closing time so I haven't wasted my time.

It's DEAD EASY in hindsight!  Anyone can produce a graph and say 'You should have bought here!' and 'You should have sold there!' :D

 

Well the signals are in realtime, but it needs a "brainfilter" to be profitable😉

And my brainfilter needs to be optimized😄

The most important are the exits, thats where the money is made

..or lost😉

Only one signal today, long at 13 732

I have been trying to trade in and out and lost money when I could have made a decent amount of money by just holding my position open.

Can you produce another chart for me with a potential pattern in formation rather than one where the patterns have already formed i.e. without hindsight?

not to undermine the op answering the question but;

1/ go to your chart and put a fast and a slow MA on it, experiment for best fit.

2/ look for a crossover after Price Action change of direction.

3/ wait for the first pullback back to the fast MA.

4/ look for a candle reversal pattern to signal pullback failure and new trend continuation for entry.

5/ always stay away from choppy PA with horizontal MAs.

"Without hindsight" 😂😂 

Funny man...assuming you're a man.

The main story yesterday was the flight out of Yen but also the continued rise in gold so money leaving one safe haven and being transferred into another. Speculation of further forthcoming BoJ easing perhaps. The completion of this move may see gold fall back as the rise in oil off the range bottom gathers momentum. Meanwhile the indices looked on from the sidelines though still in touch with the highs. The gold, oil and indices impasse may well be resolved today, my suspicion is gold easing off while oil and indices continue up.

The virus news is that net cases are no longer increasing as rate of recovery matches rate of new cases found so may have reached the tipping point towards a downturn.

Daily charts; Dax and Dow. Gold and Oil.

Unwinded my Dow short at a minimal loss. Positioned to go long on Nasdaq for the time being as short term reversal is less likely now.

I don't trade FOREX but EUR/USD is concerning. With hindsight, I should have bet my house on it.

I'm hearing about job cuts everywhere these days.  The economy must be in great shape :D

Everyone better have an alternative to holding down a job. There will be fewer and fewer jobs going around and more and more head count willing to work for less.

The S&P made a new all time high today before pulling back and the US market hasn't even opened yet.

I thought a temporary reversal was in play but even Dow, the least bullish of the three, is refusing to drop much. Maybe Dow 30000 is coming much earlier. Having said that, I will only go long on Nasdaq.

 

You have any positions on indices at the moment?

nothing on at the moment, it's too mincey. Had a short then a long earlier but both run out of steam so I closed them out before they came back on me.

I know what you mean, it's risky going for big bets. But still, another rise on Nasdaq is more likely today.

The big money just keeps on pumping the stock market and I will be surprised if the general trading population are not caught out by nosebleed highs this year.

You tried it one way, lost money, tried it the other way, lost money - exactly what happens to me when I try to trade on short-term charts.

    • Yes. IG does trade against retail traders. IG also has a lot of institutional traders. If your are trading low volume stock or Singapore CFD equities, the dealing desk will manually lock your order for a good 30 seconds so that you cannot delete nor change the order price level for the 30 seconds when they there is another bigger clients want to unload.  I have been locked this way as many ast 4 times in the past and cost over SG$10,000 loss. When I called IG, it said the dealing desk manually lock my orders with an excuse they are putting my order on hold so that they hedge it on the Exchange. In the first place I trade CFD and CFD is internal market within IG environment and our trade does not affect the market. It is highly irresponsible to lock our order. My complaints to IG for compensation via calls and emails all went without any positive response and the replies from them are as stated above. CFD market is internal market and our order should not be touched by dealing desk at all time even if there is no liquidity to fill our order then our order should just be left unfilled. At no time our order should never be locked by Dealing desk. To me this is day light robbery. Secondly, IG has deployed internal algorithm to hunt your hard stop losses and also filled in your limit order with a spike to the dot before immediately move in the opposite direction big time. Thirdly, some time IG platform will freeze and unable to re-login back when you are in a trade. This made it extremely dangerous when we cannot see the price action on the chart. This had happened to me a few times. Fourthly, nowadays even if your platform freeze or has other problem on your trade, call to their dealing desk during US market opens 100% of the time no support or dealing desk will pick your calls. My phone was kept ringing for 30mins or more and many different days. This is again does not speak well of the kind of support IG gave clients. The only attraction I use IG is the ease of use of their trading platform. These kind of  underhand tactics above are played out in IG on daily basis which made our day trading very difficult to win. It is very visible if your trade the small time frame how IG's manipulations are done.     The above comes from someone who trade daily with IG for the past 3 years. I am even considering to stop trading through IG because of the above under hand tactics. Sometimes     
    • Does IG aim to profit from client losses? No. Our business model is based on providing individuals with the opportunity to trade the world’s financial markets, in exchange for fair and proportionate transaction fees. It's a well-known fact that trading successfully is difficult, and most speculative traders tend to lose. However, we do not typically benefit from trading losses that an unsuccessful client may experience. Mostly, our clients offset each other’s positions. For example if client A buys one lot of the DAX and client B sells one lot of the DAX, both sides of the trade are covered. This means we're not exposed to the profit or loss of either client. Instead, we make our money via the spread (i.e. the transaction fee) that each client pays to trade. Sometimes, a large majority of clients will trade in one direction. When this happens, we'll protect our exposure to risk by hedging in the underlying market. For example, if client A and client B both buy the DAX, we may buy actual DAX futures. This then covers the amount we'll pay out if both clients are successful.
