IG's Trade of the Week

Recommended Posts

CB is taking on the Dax this week, nothing if not brave calling a short with a stop above 12551 (or more conservative above 12740), so far looking good but also looks to have a far bit of support to work through before first target of 12070 on what looks to be an upward sloping chart though admittedly a very gentle incline.


Watch Dow for clues as to which way this is heading. The Dow also appears to be struggling today but it too has a far bit of support underneath, not least the 100ma, if Dow can take that on the 1 hour we may well be on for a retest of the trendline on the dax chart.

Cohn last night can’t have helped the equity markets so probably why this is working out so well.


Casey would you be selling some of the position? Average out a bit or hope that trumps going to continue be his usual self...

The Cohn news helped the trade to target but it was already well on it's way. Pity the IG staff having to call a trade every Monday morning (at circle A), looked better when attacking that resistance at B, after breaking resistance the obvious target was C.


Being more short term if I was in this trade the initial target was good (1341) and if there was a determined push through bar then stay in, but the level was recognised and price turned back so I would have been content to get out and look for a possible re-entry.


For a longer term trader the daily chart shows good potential for continued gains if the 1341 level breaks.

    • Market Breakdown | WTI Oil, EURUSD, GBPNZD, EURAUDHere are the updates & outlook for multiple instruments in my watchlist.1️⃣ WTI Oil daily time frame️The market is trading in a long term bearish trend .After the last sharp bearish movement, the market is steadily recovering.Ahead, I see a major horizontal supply area.Probabilities are high, that the next bearish wave will initiate from there.2️⃣ EURUSD daily time frameAfter a breakout of a solid daily resistance, the market is preparing for its retest.Watch carefully the underlined zone and look for buying opportunities from there.3️⃣ EURAUD weekly time frameThe pair is currently approaching a weekly horizontal resistance cluster.Taking into consideration, that the pair is quite overbought, probabilities will be high to see a pullback from that4️⃣ GBPNZD daily time frameThe pair is currently retesting a broken neckline of an ascending triangle .

    • #CHFJPY: Classic Bearish Setup 🇨🇭🇯🇵   🔻CHFJPY has nicely respected a confluence zone based on a horizontal 4H resistance and a 0.5 retracement of the last bearish impulse.   The price formed a double top pattern on that and broke its neckline.   Probabilities will be high that the pair will drop lower soon. Goals: 141.172 / 140.363
