The volatility has made me realize that I am definitely better at scalping than position trading.  46 wins out of 47 trades today. I suppose they could be considered staggered entries and exits of swing trades.

Got the rally in Apple and the INDX s , made a few bob,,...But the sell off last night,,,,disappointment and Fed has fired its last shot has spooked everyone,. TB took off.  But at the moment I m staying out of it,,,,Is a 10% drop in INDX s enough ?    Is this just a temporary base before we re-visit the August lows,,,,,The disruption to 'real life' could be economically disastrous .  I m self employed ( in real life too!)  ........

So is this area of support a real base ???   If real life shuts down in London Paris and NY ....will the markets be so sanguine ????  I do nt know ?

I m concentrating on £ both aginst $ and €  ,  coming to a head ....Interesting that the market has sold off £ despite the fact that the UK will probably not cut rates...Housing market strength (so far) and PMI s picking up on the Boris bounce.....They re selling £ ( in case ) the talks go badly with EU....but we wo nt know that for months,....and most trades last a week tops.  I m bullish for a £ bounce, but waiting for 8760-90p €  area and $1,27 .     

INDX  s I think we re in for another drop,,,, but I ll wait to see what comes out in the wash.

Not sure if you're in the UK.

But the English voted for the Tories.  So the rich will be very well taken care of.  Everyone else will be left to fend for themselves and fight over scraps.  The Tories are even going to screw over the self-employed (IR35), while they let Amazon, Google etc get away with paying no tax and destroying jobs.  Since England is now 'sovereign' the people can't even get help from Europe.  :D

state of California considers declaring a state of emergency.

🤔 Is that really necessary ...

Reminds me of the medieval doctors who wore grotesque masks filled with spices and herbs.  The spices and herbs were quite useless in themselves but the doctors rarely contracted diseases because they believed they were safe ... there's evidence that being scared of something makes you more susceptible to it ... weakens the immune system and so on ... fear is a spiral downwards into depression :(

I'm thinking that declaring an 'emergency' in this day and age just means the government is reserving powers to 'get stuff done' that it wouldn't otherwise be able to because the ambulance chasers in the law industry would sue them.

    • USD TECHNICAL OUTLOOK DXY dipping into trend support dating to June Weekly reversal candle at odds with support How things unfold at support will be determinant US DOLLAR TECHNICAL OUTLOOK: DIP BRINGING TREND SUPPORT INTO PLAY The US Dollar Index (DXY) is weakening a bit after sprinting to its best levels since July 2020. This has the DXY at an interesting spot, with it sitting on a strong slope dating to June. It is also in confluence with a level from last summer, but the focal point is the slope. Last week’s reversal induced a bearish reversal candle that implies momentum could continue lower. With that in mind, testing support following a reversal makes for an interesting test of the DXY’s multi-month uptrend. The general rule of thumb is that support is support until it isn’t, and so for the immediate future as long as support holds then the USD’s outlook is seen as neutral at worst. A hard turn off the line could negate the bearish weekly reversal at some point. However, if we see support break, then further weakness is expected. In the event we see this play out the next significant level to watch is the March 2020 low that was validated in September of last year and this year. The level is right around 94.67. This would make the for deepest retracement since the uptrend began in June and doesn’t necessarily mean the trend is over, but it would be important to see that key level hold if longs are to maintain their appeal. For now, would-be longs may want to use slope support as a line to take an entry from, or wait and see if there is a reversal higher first. This latter approach would perhaps offer up a more appealing set-up with there being a low created on the slope before taking entry. For those currently holding long positions the slope could be used to determine trailing stops. For shorts, the trend is up even if support breaks, but a break of support is seen as likely to usher in more selling.

    • Great, so the abundance of energy will be used to solve maths problems (mining) to perpetuate a colossal pyramid scheme. I despair, surely all these natural resources and energy could be put to a better use?
