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.

DAX looks like it is going in for a pullback.

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

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.

    • Well Bitcoin broke $8k and is currently around the $7.5k price area. It is not looking good at all.  It seems my $6.3k - $6.6k price area which I think could be the bottom or this specific downward move looks more likely now. I mentioned this price area on Monday (a few posts above) and now I think unless there is some serious buying or spectacular news followed by some serious pumping and short covering then Bitcoin is heading towards this price zone. 
    • There are many different ways to trade and applying or adopting trend following principles is merely just one such way. Trading more frequently does not guarantee any more success but it can increase the chances of making more losses if you do not have a robust trading system that is based on a sound trading plan. Trend following does not have to involve regular or frequent trading. That is the beauty of it. You can merely wait until you identify a trend which you wish to trade. Of course they will not all be successful as the trend could reverse sharply against you, it could be a false trend (looks like a trend but not) or simply the volatility could stop you out.  Day trading really is for full time traders in my personal opinion unless you have an expensive automated system which has been tested rigorously or you are an exceptional trader which can consistently make profits on most days without gambling, hoping or relying on luck.  Trend following suits me based on the time I have available to trade. I accept it is not for everyone but I believe all trading includes an element of trend following. Just how much depends on your trading style and methodologies adopted. 
    • The 20, 50 and 100 DMA curves on the 'daily' timeframe are sloping upwards which is extremely bullish and this trend has been very nice indeed.  When I talk about 'Strongest Trending Assets' in my other threads then I am suggesting those that a lot of traders do not spot but they exist and are available not only to trade on IG's platform but one must be able to spot and identify them.
