Dax & Dow

Recommended Posts

Dow checking the pivot before the London open, Dax looking to support at 12389. Both currently above the pivot so looking for long entries.

What the hell is going om with Dax?

Moves like a dead fish in water

Could it be something with Deutsche bank?

 

 

 

Not just Deutsche Bank and it's derivatives black hole but German factory orders, industrial production and economic sentiment (today expected at -20).

Dax pirouetting around the pivot testing the recent high/low 12395 and 12430 while Dow sits over the pivot but as yet unsure which direction to take.

Dow will be trying to hold here after falling back having failed to make gains yesterday and showing something of a triple top on the H1 chart. Dax put in a strange 1 minute 70 tick fall at 1:15am that was immediately bought back up but is looking to test that low now.

Both making a positive start this morning, Dax sitting on R1 and Dow just below. Yesterday's daily charts look to have put in a higher low and there is the prospect of continuation upward today.

On the H1 chart both Dax and Dow making an encouraging move for the pivot (Friday's data) pre-European market open. Both have fairly solid support below but strong resistance above as well, current chart structure suggesting resistance likely to be tested but the pivot needs to be captured first.

Dax and Dow already checked R1 and just easing off before the European open so Dow must be thinking of a test of Friday's high around 27333 today, Dax should follow.

Nice demonstration of price recognition of multi-time frame support and resistance levels and daily pivot points on today's M5 Dax chart.

Note that all these levels were pre-existing on this morning's chart and have been adhered to with remarkable precision throughout the day as Dax climbed through the ranks.

(For the MTF S/R levels see legend top of chart in Blue).

Daily pivots a bit stretched after yesterday's extended move up, not unusual to see a check of the pivot point first thing but may cut short the attempt and look for resistance early on. 

edit; note the ATH just ahead for the Dow.

Dax moving sideways maintaining a bull flag while waiting for Dow to decide on direction.

Dow putting in a weak volume H4 bear bar and just dropping below the pivot since the London open, the ATH immediately overhead acting as a barrier at the moment, may need to wait for the US open for the mist to clear.

Well I could be wrong, but i'll put it out there.  I feel like a new rally coming to R1

Ironic but typical that I've been chasing a drop for almost 24 hours, yet now I see a potential breakout.  I'll sit with my hands in my pockets till it's validated.

see what happens on the US open, dax has been hanging around the high just waiting while dow futures have been digesting the flow of news following the out of hours announcement from the US DOJ that they have started investigations into the big 3 techs (fb, amz, and er the other one) re anti competition laws, fb just said they have set aside 5 Bil towards settlement (of just an allegation lol). dow may have bottomed at 27215, if it has dax will break up from 12549, then you'll have your rally.

think to enter after price has said  goodbye and is leaving a signif level rather than just heading into one. it's not going to rally if it can't get through 12549.

I'm a total ****.  This will be my greatest awakening to stop going in before it's Valid.

Dax eventually cleared 12549 when Dow found it's footing and started back up. Now both above the new pivot which may need a recheck but the daily charts suggest continuation upward after Dow's failed attempt to reverse yesterday.

3M earnings premarket today.

Both dax and dow trying to bounce up from here so I will look for opportunities to go long after dax has cleared above this congestion 12560.

I'm on mt4 and not having any problems re-  refreshing the page.

    • 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.
