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.

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.

    • Hi all, been up and running and watching from the side lines. Thanks for putting the list up early as I made my own list from the gap scanner from ideas but you seemed to have more plus alot of the tickers I could not trade on IG but jumped on TG Therapeutics at 973 and took some money from that. Then jumped back in at 1059 and she plummeted and my heart just sank. I managed to ride it back up to 1053 and got out with a small profit of £20. Should have put my stop in but am still learning to get out quick . I was so lucky it went back up. Thought I was going to be on a bad loss because I didn't get out early enough. I find that if you only gain a small amount each day its better that going hard at it and loosing.  Still got loads to learn. Anyway cant wait till monday.  Great content and look forward to next week. Have a great weekend.
    • Is it safe to come out now?
