Think we are in a rinse and repeat cycle till G20 and the big meeting.

May get resolution earlier. 

We could be getting ready for the blow off top before the big leg down.

Guess we cant pre-empt as that defeats TA.

On TA sometimes as you said some bits do feel like snake oil.

Probably feel that more around indicators. Patterns and Rand S levels feel more solid.

Yes, the storm will come when Trump slaps the 25% on everything, til then the basic fundamentals should grind price higher.

The trade war may be pulling back. That what seems to be the reaction.

If you look at the SH etf inverse S+P when this baby blows the short side over two years could be incredible.

yeah but only for 3-4 weeks, that's the deadline Trump gave the Chinese when they turned up in Washington having just ripped up the core of the deal, Trump immediately upped from 10% to 25% on some goods and promised to do the rest if they didn't come back to the table.

Looking for a dow bounce up off the pivot and dax to follow, failing that then a retest of support, 25723 for dow and the pivot for dax.

The last couple of days the rhetoric between the two softened and that kick started the bounce.

Does not mean we won't get it - but thoughts are from media that they are accommodating each other.

I like the charts. If trade war kicks off we could see some frightening falls.

The market feels skittish. Is this '87 again?

Coming up to the US open and dax has pushed down through 2 levels of support while dow is hanging around Friday's low. Recently we have seen the US market lift price after the London session has pushed them down.

If the D50 breaks at 11896 I would target 11400 as a key support area.

Feels more down than up but that could be the head fake.

@Bell

Yep I'm with you on that, so long as we don't get a rally above 12150 then 11400 has to the target.

You guys remind me of the IG people at 07:30 and 10:30 every weekday morning, extremely abbreviated, not too much detail for those of us who are slow and stupid.  I can't make head or tail of it.  :(

Presented with this picture in hindsight.  If you think you've identified a bottom, would you just aim for a 30 - 60% bounce back?

What value do you get from 1 hour and 4 hour charts?  Isn't it safer to look at day charts and base your position on previous days' closes?  How about referencing weekly closes too?  Wouldn't this pattern have been useful in predicting the following week's price action?

@dmedin  the weekly chart would seem to indicate that the move down was the pullback and the subsequent move back up was the trend continuation. There are many ways to read a chart which is just as well as that is what makes a market. If everyone thought the same there would be no one to take the other side of your trade, who will be proved right depends as much on future events as anything else.

Dow has drifted up over the daily pivot overnight so we may see a retest of it before longer term direction becomes clear. On large ranging days like yesterday the S&R pivots are stretched so prior highs and lows increase in importance. Don't forget that if you are using IG's web based platform Monday's pivots are distorted by the 2 hourly Sunday candles so you need to find them from another source and put them in manually but Tuesday's are fine.

Bit of a drawn out battle for control of the pivot today but looks to be away and heading for R1 and yesterday's highs.

My targets tend to be longer term. Do not feel as confident TA wise on the short term cycle.

This why I appreciate Casey. But we can all make good money playing a Long term cycle as well.

As for the Dow above 26k lets rock and roll long. Below 25k time to get more aggressively short in my eyes.

There we can allow 200dma as a res point. It may graze under and be a bear trap and shoot higher.

I feel below 25k the game changes.

Important to remember the growing power of share buybacks powering the US market.

Also international investment pushing it higher. If that moves out we could see air pockets below.

Dax looking about to retest the pivot (12134) this morning, confirmed resistance overhead at 12177 and S1 below at 12082. The China company blacklist news overnight may cause a stir on the market open.

Dow in a similar situation, looking to retest the pivot around 25830 having retested resistance above at 25900. S1 is at 25760.

It's a fair question but my lines are mostly based on the short term so for me, they're bang on. Here's a better view, but anyway it's done the job well.ger30-h1-ig-group-limited-3.png

@Foxy

Although I can't quite see it, I assume you are suggesting the trend line is telling you that was a fakeout.  Maybe on a 5 min chart or something but if you remove the 1 hour trend line does it still look like a fakeout?  Couldn't it just as easily be a natural zigzag.  I would say nothing is yet conclusive on stocks 1 hour charts right now but it depends on your trading horizon, as you imply.  As I don't day trade I am waiting for something more substantial.  Still the point I was suggesting to you  is that where you draw the lines is important and zooming out helps to put things in context.

Dax tagged R1 then fell in line with Dow, seems to be connected with increasing rhetoric about decreasing trade deal prospects coming out of China.

An unusual and interesting move sees dax and dow not bothering with the pivot and head straight down overnight to S1 in the case of dow, dax got half way before the pair bounced. Expecting an early retest of the recent low and then probability says lower to test more substantial support but the EU market open coming up at 7am and the London open at 8 will reveal all.

    • @Mercury, I see you have started to look at Coffee. Excellent. If you look at both Arabica and London (Robusta) then one could argue that we are witnessing oversold conditions especially if you look at longer term timeframes like the 'Monthly' and potentially the 'Weekly'.  For me it is about identifying potential breakouts. We may see that in the days and weeks to come but right now at this moment in time both on the 'daily' are trading below 20, 50, 100 and 200 DMA's so it is still bearish for me. It is one I am monitoring closely.  Commodities can offer some excellent trading opportunities and produce some of the strongest trends. I do not use or apply EWT but if you can use it to effectively increase your chances of success which leads to a greater chance of profiting then all the best. 👍
    • I was watching a TV series called "This Giant Beast That is the Global Economy " starring and narrated by Kal Penn, actor in "House" and speech writer with Obama.  It doesn't really cover any new concepts, although there were a few interesting observation in their, like what the most important commodity in the global economy is... (I wont spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet and wants to but it was not that obvious and is blindingly obvious in retrospect). One thing that did pop out that I though was relevant for the forum was that the price of coffee is way too low for farmers to make money.  The logical conclusion of this is that they will farm something else and supply will be curtailed and then prices will go up, the basic perpetual cycle of supply and demand change.  This very basic fundamentals proposition motivated me to look at coffee on the charts to see if there was a building opportunity and I think there may be.  I will preface my analytical assessment with the statement that I know very little about the coffee industry other than how to select a great bean type as a consumer and make a great flat white. If I look at the long term charts (Quarterly/Monthly) I see that coffee trades in a large range from about 4000 to 34000 at the extremes (or $0.40 - $3.40 per US pound if you prefer).  This seems to represent the classic economics supply and demand curve in candle pricing form.  With the available data we can see a set of cycles between the market top and bottom zones that in the main run fairly directly between the zones.  At this point my thesis would be that if you catch the market right at either extreme you can hold until price reaches the opposite end of the range (net 30,000 points or so).  For best results you want a straight run rather than one with large reversals. If I apply EWT to the chart I see a series of 1-5s and A-B-C, although this is arguably less relevant than for markets that do not operate between such obvious ranges as the key is obviously to look at trading when the market enters, or more correctly, then exits the range extremes zones.  Still it is interesting to see that the run up in the mid 70s was a motive 1-5 that still marks the high point in price.  After that I see a series of massive A-B-Cs culminating in a slightly lower high extreme price in the late 1990s than that printed in the 70s (still went into the market top zone though). This high then produced a 1-5 down to the lowers price on the chart around 2002.  The next move up to 2011 could be either an A-B-C or a 1-5 and the current move looks decidedly like an A-B-C.  If the 2011 move is an A-B-C and the current move is also an A-B-C then I would expect the current move to be a larger wave B that ends higher than the previous low and spawns a massive rally that ends higher than the previous high and is a 1-5 that goes pretty much straight up.  Either way the current move is and A-B-C so will end higher than the previous low and as most of the bear moves end inside the market bottom zone I can reasonable conclude that this move will end somewhere between 4200 - 8000. Let's look at a shorter term charts to see if we can refine this.  I have 2 weekly charts attached, the first of which shows the bearish move down from 2011 and the second of which zooms in on the final wave C of C.  In the first chart I can see a clear A-B-C structure to all 3 of the larger A-B-C wave form of the bearish move.  This confirms an A-B-C and not a 1-5 and also confirms that the market is in a final wave C of C, which will spawn that Bull market.  I also have a nice upper resistance trend line and 2 possible lower lines (both may be valid) with a lot of good current (green circle) and prior pivot (purple circle) touches. If we look at the second weekly chart the wave C of the larger wave C (from the wave B pink) is cutting a clean 1-5 pattern and looks to have just completed the 3-4 part of this.  The rally to wave 4 (blue) is in a-b-c, which you would expect of a retrace so the next bearish phase should be a final wave 5 that will mark the end of the overall bear market.  I would be looking for price to hit one of the lower channel lines but inside or on the 8000 level ideally.  Note all previous moves that did not make it to the extremes zone were not wave Cs (As or Bs) and all the 5 did.  So the conclusion to this is that all wave Cs or motives 1-5s penetrate the extremes zones of the range but As and Bs tend not to.  Also 1-5 waves tend to run hard and fast and make more extreme price tops.  The current move looks line a Wave C that would spawn a 1-5. Finally looking at the daily chart the current bearish phase looks to have put in a 1-2 (green) of that final 1-5 I am looking for.  I will be tracking this for the 3-4-5 and other signals to see if I can spot the turn.  As and when price breaks out of the upper weekly trend line resistance I think a strong bull market will be in play that could be a motive 1-5 that makes it into the extreme market top zone.  In all of the bull turns through there has been a strong short term retrace so the best strategy might be to let the turn happen and spot the initial retrace turn.  In these agri type commodities getting in on such a range extremes turn has to be the way to play it.  I will be tracking this one with interest for a while but it will require some time still to mature I think. 
    • I last posts around 2-3 weeks ago on this thread and I have seen Litecoin go down towards the lower $70's. It is currently trading at $76-77 at the time of writing this post.  Litecoin's chart looks pretty ugly. It is currently trading below its 20, 50, 100 and 200 DMA's which is very bearish.  Only really Bitcoin (significantly) and Bitcoin Cash are trading above their 200 DMA's on the 'daily.  Litecoin will need some very bullish news or a big move from Altcoins / Bitcoin otherwise it could easily fall down into the 60's.  After the halving event, it seems, Litecoin has been heavily sold. This capital may now shift to Bitcoin. That is my suspicion and assumption and the price action will confirm this. I will be interested to see if the divergence between Bitcoin and Litecoin increases.
