I am net short and pessimistic on DOW. In my opinion, this rally should be seen as an opportunity to short DOW .

Could turn out that way but difficult to know with any degree of certainty how the trade talks will pan out, seems to be real progress this time round. Retail have been increasingly short all week as price has continued to rise.

Dax perched on the pivot and looking higher, Dow in a similar position. A push up on the European open this morning but may see a check of support on the London open before attempt to check yesterday's highs.

Dow checking support on the open having tagged R1 early morning while Dax keen to get on with it.

If support is found above the pivot will be expecting a retest of R1 for Dow  and a rally to R1 for Dax.

Dax motors on up to R1 with a brief pause at the pivot while Dow saunters up from S1. Dax has run into yesterday's resistance so likely to wait here and watch Dow.

First a miss from Cat and then a slight beat from Boeing though with a reduced production outlook sees Dow down then climbing back up from S2.

Dax on a bit of a round trip taking off to visit R1 then back down to resistance turned support 12817 after a slight miss on the Ger PMIs. Should steady now and wait for Draghi's last ECB rate decision and presser, not likely to drop a bomb for Lagarde who doesn't mind a bit of QE herself.

Both Dax and Dow have pushed strongly up off the Pivot so R1 is the initial target though we often see a check of support on the London open. A break below the Pivot changes the targets to S1.

Dax and Dow nudging resistance coming up to the London open, will often check support initially before attempting to push higher.

Weekly charts below and it's been a strong month for Dax as Dow keeps looking for an excuse to break the high.

The big day is Wednesday with the FOMC rate decision and Apple and FB earnings report.

Dow starting out atop the pivot while Dax just below, the overall trend remains bullish but as ever may see an initial probe to confirm support before an attempt to test resistance.

Dax pushing up to the pivot on the European open, Dow holding just below the pivot. Likely to be fairly lite while waiting for the big drivers (FOMC and Earnings) this evening. If we see a Dow capture of the pivot could see follow up and an attempt at yesterday's high around R1 but a check of support to see how firm the base is seems more likely.

Both starting above the pivot, may check support before testing higher. With US earnings good and the rate cut out of the way, the ADP nfp a beat bodes well for tomorrows NFP and US GDP a beat at 1.9% would expect continuation higher.

It was China expressing doubt that a trade deal would ever be reached with Trump in the White House and that they want all tariffs removed before new talks but that won't happen, US economy is doing well while China's production figure continue down.

Well ... viewed in the weekly light, it isn't that bad.  Just a bit of indecision between Fibos.  :)

DAX looks like it is going in for a pullback.

Pullback maybe but what is a pullback, it's profit taking with a countertrend attempt to reverse that peters out. Those three candles don't look like that, maybe some profit taking on the first red but the second pushed down hard and then was bought straight back up and the same on the third. The long wicks and small bodies would indicate to me buyer strength rather than seller strength. So it looks more like profit taking and a buyer pause followed by 2 attempts to reverse both of which ran into strong buying.

Both pushed down on the European open though both remain above the Pivot so if can find support above will be looking for further upside gains. If the bulls lose the pivot then looking to the short side.

    • 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.
