Both rallied to the pivot overnight and now rechecking support. Dax back at the overnight low and may find support there again otherwise it's onto S1.

Dax and Dow just pausing at yesterday's high having bounced up off the pivot on the open. For Dax R1 just ahead then Tuesday's point of control at 12345.

The profile is volume rather than market so the red bar (POC) is the level at which most volume was traded rather than the level where most time was spent, the blue bars are high volume nodes.

I observe what appears to me like a Descending Triangle Pattern in the Dow daily chart. As the range get smaller and smaller it will eventually break out, I believe to the downside. That support level at 26750 would be the level to watch put for. I believe that this may happen in the next few trading days

Dax straight up to 12345 which was a big sell volume node from Tuesday mentioned a few posts up. Both Dax and Dow are above the pivot with Dow retesting now.

I'm always a bit skeptical about patterns and tend to look at them from the other way round because random patterns turn up all the time. So rather than see a pattern and then try to find context and significance I would prefer to already have context and then see the chart pattern or candle pattern or indicator signal confirming it because on their own none of these are worth betting on.

The weekly Dow is bullish, the US GDP is 2%, Trump hasn't upped the stakes in the trade war (yet). On the down side the world economy continues to slow though at a fairly gentle pace and is tied directly to the trade war so currently (now) the context is bullish and if I saw a pattern that supported that, great. If Trump suddenly upped the trade war stakes then there would be a good chance of a descending triangle pattern playing out, great.

Good follow through after the initial thrust up on market open for both Dax and Dow, pulling back now in anticipation of the US open though being Friday not expecting fireworks this afternoon. US Durable Goods up 0.5% over the 0.2% expected.

Slow start to the week, Dow trying to continue to work up from key support at 26714 towards Friday's high at 27013.

Dax closing in on daily chart resistance at 12405 (also the Friday high).

Wall Street is dipping.

But Dax not following, Dow checking for support having been unable to push up through 26940, not really a strong bearish move.

Dax pushed up to weekly chart resistance at 12495 and through R1 before pulling back to the pivot while Dow pushed through R1 before pulling back to settle mid way between the pivot and R1.

Plenty of Fed speak this afternoon as well as US PMIs at 3pm.

A breakdown of support just happened on Dow. Might even go as low as 25950 at 50 EMA on the weekly chart.

I hope everyone was short

Both starting above the pivot so looking for long opportunities, Dow targeting R1 (26610) and yesterday's high (26657).

Dax already tagged R1 on the European open has since pulled back.

Hi - what app do you use here ?

It's the MT4 platform with daily pivot support and resistance levels (orange, green and red) plus there is a volume profile overlay running left to right which is the grey lines with the high volume nodes in blue and the current max volume node in dark pink.

I take it you trade manually, not algorithmically

yeah. I'm looking for dips between levels or breakouts/breakdowns from levels on the lower time frame charts.

So, you sell R1,2,3 and buy S1,2,3 with TP at the other end, and SL 1-2 or 2-3 and you keep positions overnight ...

not as simple or as regimented as that, the next level could well be a TP as I expect some kind of resistance at each level and so wait to see which side takes control then look to climb aboard.

So the ol 'Trump says something aggressive but doesn't mean it and that'll be redacted pretty soon when it all kicks off".

Long DOW with a long ol stop on it.

Both starting out below the pivot and looking for support though as ever on the London open may see an initial test in the opposite direction.

A lot of indecision and very long tailed doji's seen in Dow yesterday at the peak volume node (dark pink) which anchors today's pivot point around 26300.

100 pnt spike - this will wake up half of the City :)

yes, instead of retaliating against yesterday's news China just signaled they were open to making at least a partial trade deal with the US.

    • Read an interesting article on Yahoo finance which showed the majority of gains in the Nasdaq is down to the big 6 tech firms and without them there would have been no gain in the Nasdaq since 2016 and the majority of movement is down to the price of 6 companies. It would appear, in the search for dividend and profit everyone has opted to buy Amazon, Facebook, Apple, Alphabet, Microsoft and Netflix, as a herd reaction. No one has stopped to question whether they are over-bought at all, or if they may have questioned that premise, the thought would have been quickly cast asunder in the wake of evidence to the contrary (prices of the big 6 only bulldozing up). This may have lead to a false narrative, where we may consider everything is rosy in the garden of equities and everything  will all be alright soon, as long as the big 6 keep on growing, even if much other evidence suggests the contrary. Which it is. From employment to housing arrears, from relationships with allies and perceived foes to actual communal transmission of Covid 19. From stratospheric  Fed and govt debt to trade imbalance, from irrational exuberance to actually facing reality now. Instead of relentless optimism, relentless realism.  It would appear we are in for another week of exuberance. The sun is shining, people are out enjoying themselves and one could be forgiven for thinking the crisis is over and we can all go back to doing exactly what we were doing before this inconvenience struck. Reassessment can be inconvenient too. No one likes to be wrong, (though we often are). Least of all the Potus, who's principle motivation may not be the well being and good health of his people, more the well being of the economy, more specifically the price of equity. He encourages more exuberance even when evidence may suggest otherwise.  It is earnings season for equities, the reports, many of  which would make grim reading in more sober times, will be ignored for even the merest hint that the future will be brighter or it wont get any worse, from a reaction to Remdesivir (which appears to improve more than it harms, improves 9 harms 3...a litigation lawyers dream) to any glimmer of positive data.  Then one looks at the price of Tesla and realise the equity markets really have gone potty. Look at Tesla's numbers and its price makes no sense at all. Herd irrational exuberance in a nutshell. VW and Toyota p/e  far less than 10, now look at Tesla and you know its share price is on steroids and anything else the doctor will prescribe.  I recently drove to the New Forest to visit a good friend. It is normally a patience sapping experience, but left on Friday 7 pm and arrived at 9;10 pm in record breaking totally unbelievable 2 hours 10 minutes. In July. Normally, it takes at least 3 hours. Roads are still quiet. Which leads me to question again the premise of a "V" shaped recovery  and consider whether those that suggested a "V" shaped recovery actually have very poor hand writing and their version of a V more closely resembles a flattish tick or even a very sloppy W. I digress, the point being there has to come a time when the US has to take off its rose tinted glasses and see the reality of Now for what it is, rather than wishing it all away for a brighter tomorrow. Might not happen this week as equities push higher but you can't escape it forever. Can you?
