@Bell

A great day for bulls on the Dow & the Dax but take a look at my H1 chart of the Dow and tell me if you're going to hold a long overnight.

Here's the same chart for the Dax. support @ 11926 and resistance @ 11990 so long as 11990 is resistance this is probably the high to sell when the support breaks. It looks like it has rejected 11990 for now.

@elle

I think a little pause down to about 11500 on the Dax and around 24400 on the Dow sounds good to me.

@Foxy would hold for a move to 25400 - 25000 theoretically on spread bet play.

Market oversold.

Stated long term am not confident about this index. Short end is the way to play on a large position.

The second time 25000 is broken will be the key play down in my opinion.

That would likely take us down to 23500 -23000 zone.  all the best.

I see resistance @25350ish on the Dow any higher than that and I think June will be a Bull month, it sounds daft but it does seem to work a little that way, month by month. We may even see the Dow get there tonight and that will be interesting for the rest of the week. It looks like I'll be up late tonight looking for that short especially if the Dow gets to 25350 then pulls back. I trade the Dax but the Dow is the Boss.

Two bull flags on the recent move up, may first look to consolidate or check support after the big rally but will be eyeing up those daily chart resistance levels just overhead (orange).

After the usual battle on the open Dax now at the overnight high and looking for R1 which is a bit stretched today given yesterday's big move.

@Roadrat, as @elle is suggesting Dow just put in a good breakout move up with 25416 as resistance should now act as  support and hopefully continue on towards R1 but would like to see some sort of pullback test or a short period of consolidation first.

@caseynotes, thanks for your suggestion, I will wait for the pullback before going in.

Dow continued upward overnight and currently pulling back from R1 while Dax struggles with the pivot. Generally pays to assume today will be similar to yesterday until it isn't so first off will be looking for a retest of the recent highs.

Is anyone expecting anything from the ECB rate decision today?

Dax stalled at yesterday's high and awaiting the ECB, Dow stalled between R1 and R2.

Dax hit by the change to guidance on rates, not seen so much action from a ECB mon pol statement for a long time. The correction seems over for now but still the presser to go.

Mexican trade talk came in ( handy ! )   So I wondering if it was a "stop grab"    Here's the US500  chart  , it popped just above that old gap & touched the 50% fib

Truth is I'm sure you're right but until my chart agrees I can't jump in. I trade the dax not the dow and that's a good bit behind just now. The dax has been a waste of time for me the last two days, it needs to rally or die one or the other.

Stepped up to H1 charts as Dax has got it'self a bit out of sync. R1 is the target (a bit stretched in Dax's case after yesterday's high volatility) but may see a retest of the pivot first and of course the nfp today may well rock the boat.

    • yes @TrendFollower, there are plenty of long term investors with IG and it's right they should take notice and plan well ahead for any eventuality but traders should be thinking differently and look to be responsive to changes in market conditions. As in my previous post the big indices always look a bit toppy and it's too easy to get in short too soon. Back in 2016 there was talk of impending recession for most of the year and many new traders blew their accounts continually shorting the market trying to 'catch the big one', the get rich quick trade. It was depressing to watch.  Here's another interesting chart of S&P seasonal pattern of average return 1990-2018 suggesting uncertainty in the short term before resumption upward.
    • @Caseynotes, One must remember that on average it can take around 18 months from when the treasury yield curve flips or inverts to the start of a recession.  People talk about Dr. Copper but another commodity that it is worth keeping an eye on is Lumber. When housing construction begins to drop then that can be one of many indicators to have a look at. Others are inflation, interest rate direction, wage growth, unemployment, etc. There are many well documents indicators which signal a potential recession is around the corner.  From a trading perspective one should not worry as long as one is comfortable shorting. Those who are not may struggle to consistently make enough profits during a recessionary period. 
    • @Caseynotes, Yes that is right. I have seen some calling the recession for the past two to three years! They have been calling it as if it is around the corner. Then when it does not come they move the goal posts via obscure technical analysis. When one challenges it, one is deemed negative or a naysayer.  Corrections happen large and small. Investors sell investments to take profits. This has been happening since the markets began. Prices go up and down. Prices are bullish and bearish. Of course trading sentiment plays a big part but for me following the price action and letting the price action lead you to a trading decision is key. Trying to wait for the price action to follow your view and then changing the narrative by giving technical reasoning when it does not follow your view in my opinion will lead to missing out on trading opportunities.  For a sound trader, recessions, should not be feared but welcomed. If one understands how prices react during recessions then one can prepare their trading strategy for this outcome but for when it happens and not before.
