Dax & Dow

Recommended Posts

Dax got it's bounce off S1 but had to wait for Dow to come down and bounce off it's pivot, the move back up is lacking drive though.

On the zoomed out Dow H1 we can see the previous double top level 26250 (red) is within reach and price looks willing to test it in the near future, will look for that to be broken this week to signal a move higher for all the indices.

Dow completed it's drift lower to the pivot around 26100 while Dax ranging between 12125 and 12079. Fairly flat market so far.

Both Dax ad Dow have fallen away from the pivot towards S1 and both have something of a triangle pattern going on in the M30 charts. Looking to see if the European open shows direction. Currently the Bears hold the pivot so looking to target S1 but that may change especially after the London open at 8am.

Yes, looking at the dailies it's a pretty bleak row of insignificant candles stretching back over a week, the Ger econ senti at 10am may get a reaction but everyone seems to be waiting for the FOMC mon pol statement tomorrow.

Flat and balanced markets are difficult and not trading is often the better plan until they become directional again, otherwise it's a case of drilling down and finding short sharp targets playing the range.

Yes, and then they went real directional real quick. Now bull flags and stretched pivot levels and the FOMC later today will likely overshadow and subdue action before hand. May look for support confirmation during the day, can't really see them striking out for R1 before FOMC though Dax can be boisterous and may have a go.

Looking for trend continuation today though Dow may initially pullback to check support.

Dax moving sideways waiting for Dow to check support, Dow will try to hold here at 26730 and push up again, otherwise it's down for a test of 26708.

And wow, that monthly resistance line (purple) which is also the ATH is just right there, but it's likely very strong meaning a very strong push will be needed to carry the ball over and touch it down on the other side.

In the meantime Dow checking the pivot from the underside and Dax looking to do the same. As ever, first looking to see who controls the pivot then looking for targets in that direction.

Both Dax and Dow look like rejecting S1, if so the next move will be on to S2 but the more weighty influence of the London market open at 8am may stir things up.

Dow recently tested S2 which is the recent low (26656) so that looks a crucial level for the day, if price can stay above then it should go on to test the pivot then maybe the recent high (26800). 

Dax will try to follow Dow but is weighed by the never ending gloomy news out of German manufacturing and the two charts are diverging. I suspect if Dow goes sideways Dax will go down.

H1 charts.

Learn to recognise the difference between balanced and directional markets and stay out of when it's balanced.

Balanced;                                                                              Directional;

The DAX and the FTSE are pushed and pulled by wall st. and today it's not clear what will happen. Because wall st. pulled back over night today's move on the DAX & FTSE have been nervous.

That's correct, Dow has been meandering towards the pivot while Dax has been knocking on the door but refusing to go through unless Dow is holding it's hand. So waiting on some decisive action from Dow on the US market open.

Not much on the European open, Dow flat below the pivot while Dax positioned just below it's pivot, red daily candle for both yesterday and bears currently controlling the pivot so target is S1 but waiting for the London open to check direction for the morning.

I tend to trade Dax and stick to the London market hours because there is better follow through, I like to look at Dow and use as a leading directional indicator. Then I'll look to pivot points on the M5 chart, there is often a battle at the levels so wait til a winner emerges and join the ride on a pullback on the M1 chart.

    • @HPbrand, The long term value of Bitcoin is what ever the world deems necessary. What this is I do not know. In terms of chances that Bitcoin goes to zero or pushed to zero is low in my personal view. If it was going to have failed and crashed then it would have done so after the parabolic and insane $20k price spike. I am not saying it cannot go to zero if something better comes along but until that happens I do not see Bitcoin going to 0 anytime soon.  I find that the more you read on Crypto and learn about it, understand it better the less you will become sceptical about it. I could argue that I am sceptical of something which is inside of Government control. Are the politicians in power any more wiser or intelligent than other people in society? I find the brightest minds do not work for Government. They want to be paid handsomely and therefore you will find the most intellectual beings working for the private sector or for themselves (self employed).  If you are trading based on price action then you need to remove your personal emotions about Crypto and your personal views about it and just trade based on price action and use the same signals / indicators you would for any other asset such as Commodities, Indices, etc.  Some of the books which I read which really changed my thinking on Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain were: Digital Gold (The Untold Story of Bitcoin) by Nathaniel Popper Blockchain (Blueprint for a New Economy) by Melanie Swan The Business Blockchain by William Mougayar Blockchain Revolution by Don Tapscott and Alex Tapscott The Book of Satoshi (The Collected Writings of Bitcoin Creator Satoshi Nakamoto) by Phil Champagne Cryptoassets (The Innovative Investors Guide to Bitcoin and Beyond) by Chris Burniske and Jack Tatar If you get a chance then read some of these books if not all. This will increase your knowledge of the area rather than relying on media garbage that gets spurned out by journalists who know very little about the subject area. These books really opened up my mind and gave me information that helped me to understand Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain better.  Now acquiring knowledge and trading Cryptocurrencies are two different things. This is where a lot of people are letting their personal opinions, emotions and views get in the way of their trading decisions. If at any given time Cryptos are the 'Strongest Trending Assets' either on the 'long' side of 'short' side then surely the better traders who want to maximise their profits and achieve the greatest performance possible would seriously consider trading that asset. In my view they would do so using the same trading plan, trading strategy and trading system they use for any other asset. This is where a lot of people let their personal views cloud their trading judgement. 
    • You talk about herd immunity and social distancing is imposed. You see the problem? Summer officially starts in June. Everyone has the freewill to believe what they want. Just watch how this panic progress. I said what I said in 2020.
    • Hello I am new to trading and hopefully this is not a silly question. I have placed a order for a US company stock at the price which was displayed at the time. why isn't this order executing and it just seems to stay in the orders? Am I doing something wrong? As the price of the stock keeps rising I have to keep increasing my buy price which is really annoying.
