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.

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.

If I was a betting man I'd say this might fall a bit more before it carries on 🤔

Both Dax and Dow are coiling with no real hint as to which way they might spring.

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.

Only trying to help and show how TA can be used

Doable on a daily timeframe, or maybe four hours, but drilling down into minutes even even hourly just doesn't cut it for me.

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.

How do you trade this?  It's choppy AF for the last several days.  I have no idea :)

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

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.

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.
