Dax & Dow

Recommended Posts

Dax managed to get a bounce up off the trendline but struggling to make any headway as Dow bounces sideways on support.

Dax takes a fun ride down 100 tick to revisit the Feb 15th low before popping back up to put in a new high of the day.

Another dax stumble yesterday (as did dow) the up move is starting to look strained with volume dropping away. Influence of the 89% forecast chance of a US rate rise at end of March FOMC? The US CPI data at 12:30 with it's implications on potential US interest rates may stir the mix.

Remain in step today following the drop yesterday that seemed to be more about Donald Trump's The Apprentice style 'you're fired' than anything else?

Resurrecting this thread for an intraday commentary, refer to the Indices thread for the longer term charts.

Pre European open and Dow testing the daily pivot with Dax in tow.

Dow S1 is at yesterday's low 26300 and the first target for any up move is R1 is 26580.

Dax has S1 at 12230 and R1 at yesterday's high at 12330.

Dax has made several attempts to go higher but reined in by Dow which is just mincing around just below the pivot. Dow looks to have some support at 26400 but not much enthusiasm to try a move up.

Dax has been jumping up to try to take a bite out of R1 all day but Dow not playing, even after the GDP beat and the US open, so leaving Dax to fall back to pivot each time.

S&P tried a strong push on high but got knocked back down, Dow and Dax the same. Big moves, lots of money being thrown around.

On the London open Dow stays centered at the pivot while Dax returns up to it's pivot having found support at 12290.

If Dax can break through the pivot the first target is 12350 then R1 at 12380.

Quite an exciting round trip for Dow, first up to test R1 then R2 then back down to beyond S1 and now back roughly where it started. Dax couldn't keep up so instead targeted 12350 and held on.

Dow was a similar story to the S&P today, an attempt to push higher quashed then the same for the attempt to push lower. Still has plenty of support at this level.

Taking a look at market profile for a few days, though MP has lost some of it's impact due to the adoption of 24 hr markets I'm looking specifically at the point of control and value areas. Let's see also if I can predict the high and low of day after the first hour of London open (bit silly to try on a fomc day but ...)

Dax currently looking for support. LT bull, MT neutral and ST is bull so looking to fade off support as well as buy pullbacks.

Dow is currently LT bull, MT bull and ST neutral so waiting.

NB; don't forget German bank holiday today so the Dax spread stays high.

Ok, so (during the London market open hours)  the LOD is going to be 12384 and the HOD will be around 12460 (between R1 and R2).

Even though being a Ger bank holiday and a FOMC day I really can't see what could possibly go wrong with this prediction 🙄

If by some inexplicable quirk of fate this fails miserably I'll keep trying on a daily bases in the hope of averaging out.

After a rather tedious morning session dax and dow make a break down for the pivot helped by a miss on the US manu PMI which came in at 52.4.

The combo of mixed earnings results, slight miss on the US manu PMI and a frozen Fed's Powell yesterday lead to a loss of confidence in the indices that may turn out to be overdone as is often the case on initial reactions.

Dax is LT bull, MT bull/neutral and ST neutral/bearish. Currently lingering midway between S1 and pivot (as is Dow) and both looking a little lost.

Waiting for the Eur open at 7 am to give a hint at direction then the more important London open at 8 am. And then in the first hour of the London session to see if we can identify the low or high of the session and then try to plot out the opp high/low target based on the current 14 day average true range which is currently 90ish odd points.

Well this is fun, the 90 point range was reached by the 7 am candle, resistance found at yesterdays value area low then a strong 30 min red candle down to find support at today's value area low  (12300) and we still haven't had the PMIs yet  😂

    • 1) It would be really helpful to be able to change a stop loss from normal to guaranteed stop in the online trading platform. Currently we can only do that on the mobile app which is ridiculous because the online trading platform should be having more features than the mobile app. 2) Allow us to set limit (take profit) for partial position size. Example if I buy 5 contracts of AUD/USD at 0.7150. I would like the option to be able to set take profit for 3 contracts at 0.7170 and 2 contracts at 0.7190.   
    • Hi Folks, The platform advertises that you need to place three or more trades in the previous month to avail of the free trading on US stocks (no $15 commission) for the subsequent month. However, even with that commission fee gone you're going to have to pay IG for the currency conversion each time. You're going back and forth between buying and selling, GBP to USD to GBP ...this will equate to a lot of money. So, you've realised the above and to avoid this really ridiculous and expensive merry-go-round you turn on multi-currency feature, right? In your head you think:   "I want to exclusively trade US stocks, I've waited one month (you'd have rathered to just pay IG and not need to wait), made more than three trades on that currency merry-go-round, I am happy to pay the reasonable quarterly fee to IG from here on in and keep the account as USD while availing of their most advertised feature, the commission free trading on US stock market". The new month arrives and you can have a great time trading on the US stock market with your dollar that doesn't keep eating away at any trade profits with each buy and sell. However, the next month arrives and menacing commission fee is back! But you traded at least three times last month, what gives? Ah! But you used the multicurrency feature, and this means on the subsequent month you will not be eligible for commission free trading. You're back to square one. Your choice is to either pay IG the fee for every conversion in every trade or prevent this and keep the respective currency but also you must pay IG a commission.    Anyone else experience this? I'm hoping I'm completely wrong, but contacting the helpdesk seems to confirm this ...
    • IG need to provide a stock screener, live scanner for volume/price movement, pre-market data,  and rapid execution for private traders and rebate fees for trading view as they do for PRT, with traders who trade frequently. One can be ambitious and ask IG to provide a free platform like thinkorswim as Ameritrade does with current news stream  - again a free rebate for access to Benziga or similar with rebates linked to the amount of trades.  The money spent on IG TV perhaps can be spent somewhere else towards provision of some free resources to private traders/investors.  The IG tv is a serious issue - do IG really think that IG TV add any value?  Access to financial publications/sites might be a better thing.  The effort of IG to provide its own academy, advice etc is and always will probably a poor quality duplication.  Please learn/borrow from American brokers and now that their commission charges are Zero.  PRT - Can that be downloadable.  The web based form just slows everything down and very clunky and the charts are not elegant at all.  They have a community and they do develop or help develop some strategies. We do not want to lose them. But a live screener /scanner please.  I just realised that I do not even know if IF IT team even reads these comments or prioritise any of the suggestions. Please get rid of your IG TV investment, it is very annoying. And yes VWAP/anchored VWAP please on the charts. Give the private investors some of the rebates too. Is Charlotte, finally providing our redemption by talking these to the right eyes and ears! Overall, IG really is not that bad given others at least for UK investors. Perhaps just a less spread and less of that dreaded, sudden declaration that this stock is only for close and you can not open new position. I think that and the liquidity  excuse is lame unless IG is beholden to a particular market maker or IG somehow gets it in a very large position by itself.
