@Caseynotes agreed - all about the strength of the bounce.

We need strong bounce above 12,200 to start to weaken downward  cycle on Dax and a 25500 upward thrust on INDU.

G20 will start to define the markets. I think this could be huge one - what goes off between Xi and Trump here will define matters for a quarter at least.

Would look at DAX very carefully do not like what is happening in Europe. Banks stink. Manufacturing weak of course this has nothing to do with China... in Merkel's eyes.

The problem with Europe was not the loose economic union... it is our insane political one... they have built a new Habsburg empire and that did not end well.

yeah @Bell, I suspect you are right, an actual meet at the G20 between Trump and Xi was only officially agreed yesterday and whatever comes out of that will be the next big driver. I don't worry myself too much about the longer term we have all seen these major markets turn on a dime, or a two sentence Trump tweet even.

Also saw an interesting EU wide poll during the week reporting that for the first time ever the greater % of those polled though the EU would not survive in the long term 😧

The dax open on Sunday was delayed 2 min for some reason and we've ended with a gap on dax but not on dow. Both midway between the pivot and S1 and waiting for direction (Sunday's candle not included in the pivot calc).

selling opportunities now from R2 for DAX ?

 

Perhaps, that's a very strong move up though so I wouldn't be rushing in to bet against it. Price seems happy to be hanging around just below R2  at the moment, at some point it will move on and the key is always to be looking to trade as price has done with a level and is moving away on to the next level whether that be up or down and there will be a pull back along the way to get aboard.

I have found that if there's going to be a short squeeze, Tuesday is the most likely of days for it to happen. They're not called "Turnaround Tuesdays" for nothing

Believe we have a crack at the long side as we are technically oversold. But we must be very cautious.

Would look to trade dow for a move to the 200dma at 25400 - more than that is a bonus.

Always one tweet away from the trade turning fast.

Merkel's coalition toast wait for Dax to weaken and short hard. That market looks very precarious.

Merkel is weak and Trump will apply more pressure... it's in his interest

I think and pray you are right. Market feels like it needs a bounce.

Mid term quite bearish.

Short term do not want to be forced short till I am ready.

@JLZM1999

Maybe but I find it best to wait and see how it looks at the end of the day, there could be an attempt at 12000. I think the first two or three pullbacks will find buyers.

Looks happy enough just hanging around R2 while Dow goes on a pullback, may see a stronger attempt on R2 if/when Dow heads up again.

I think 25200 may have a chance on the Dow with 12000 ish on the Dax. Missed the train this Morning couldn't get in the station for stampeding Bulls, Looking for a pullback, good chance at the open of Wall St.

I've had second thoughts on that, I'm out for the day it's too risky to buy @ this level in this trend, I'm going to wait and see if we go short overnight.

@foxy You may be right. would only look at this as a small position play.

Mid and Long term bearish - too much out there.

Technically oversold. But below 200 dma is never good.

Would be looking to put much larger position short later on.

A quick look at the monthly shows 11650 as significant support, I think that and a new Month could explain today's Bullish mood. April very Bullish, May very Bearish, June?????? it may be the worm has turned but it's worth waiting out a day to be sure because if 11650 breaks on the Dax I think it will go down like the Titanic.

    • Indices had a bit of a set back yesterday when the Chinese announced after arriving home from the trade talks that they had changed their mind and decided not to sign the partial agreement til after more talks. Dax is not hanging around and is up 60 points this morning with the monthly chart resistance level dead ahead. Ftse still plagued by Brexit uncertainty. Daily charts;
    • Indices climbing, Oil up and USD looking for support, Bonds trying to bounce off support and Gold up yesterday within a triangle. China trade numbers down. EU indy production figures at 10am.
    • When adopting trend following principles it is not necessary to trade for the sake of trading. One can simply wait for the right trend or trading opportunity. I like to wait for the 'Strongest Trending Assets' opportunity and if I can identify them as early as possible by watching the price action then I like to try and trade them either 'long' or 'short' depending on the directional movement.  One of the problems traders get into is the need to constantly trade when there is simply not a trading opportunity there where the 'odds and probability' are stacked more in your favour. I do not trade daily or weekly. I may only place say ten trades a year and sometimes more or sometimes less but they will be when I think the 'odds and probability' are more in my favour and the chances of success are greater because the trending action on a particular asset is so strong. My trade could last days, weeks or even months but I set no time limit or profit goal.  There is nothing complex in my trading strategy, trading style or trading philosophy. It is heavily inspired by and based on historical trend following strategies that are out there and available for all to research. I have not created anything new or invented anything of significance. I am merely trying to identify the strongest trending asset with a view to trading it in the direction it is moving in with a chance to profit from that movement.
