Recommended Posts

According to moving averages , the moving averages have power to send prices lower? I am tying to learn from forum guru!

I was looking at the (edit) weekly chart over weekend and thinking what a fine bullish reversal candle that was off resistance turned support line and about the 100 ema. Tried to test the low yesterday but looking like failing. Retest 22504 next?

Always brilliant commentary . I've been a way a while doing other stuff but had to come back with this observation of the Nikkei 225 which I've been tracking for years. Long timeframe but worth noting. Hopefully worse case scenario can be averted.

What would happen to the YEN if this is the beginning of a bear market?

 

"

TOKYO -- The Bank of Japan's unprecedented buying of exchange-traded funds leave the central bank increasingly vulnerable to a stock market downturn when it comes.

The BOJ held a staggering 20.3 trillion yen ($182 billion) worth of Japanese-equity ETFs as of Sept. 30, up 4.4 trillion yen from six months earlier, data released Tuesday shows. That figure is 2.5 times the bank's capital of 8.1 trillion yen and could top 3 times by the end of the fiscal year next March"

 

"Estimates show that the market level where the central bank's paper gains would turn to losses lies at around 16,000 for the Nikkei Stock Average, compared with the index's current level of around 22,500. The longer the central bank continues buying, the higher this break-even point will rise."

Hi . 

Interesting bespoke macd settings 121, last cross over early 2015 but what about your BBands? or are they saved for the lower time frames. 

The central banks are thinking about having a go at attempting to ease off the stimulus pedal but what will happen??? 

I was looking at the recent COT report and the interesting steep rise in volume for indices this 1st quarter (centred on Dow), there was an initial high volume drop but levelled out since and large speculators still remain net long. Interesting.

This MACD idea was just something I stumbled upon in my research and looked interesting. I have not tested it going back decades. It just appeared something useful for the present 10-15 years. Whenever I see a cross, I just think hope the G's will be able to deal with it. Of course there is no guarantee this trend pattern will repeat, but there are a lot of fundamentals at play out there at the moment which could make things repeat again like before.  I don't think my Bollinger Band ideas come in useful here. I tried 800 instead of 20 but think they just add confusion. I like playing around a lot with averages 800, 500, and 34 and that's how I discovered this trend pattern.

Although I agree that technical analysis is great for increasing the probability of a scuessfull execution and gives evidence to suggest where a market could be moving, as well as being useful for gauging entry and exit points, I feel it makes up maybe 40% of my trade decision FOR ME. Obviously different things for different people work...

 

... but what I wanted to get in this thread is a thoughtful input on the fundamental and technical crossover. For example - what is the underlying fundamental factor that could initiate the sell off? Trumps shenanigans could be a factor, but less so for the nikkei I would expect. Increase in global inflation is too obvious and the central banks would be not only raising those soooo slowly but also have other macro figures firmly in their sights. There don’t seem to be any mega geo political events on the horizon. (Brexit maybe but again, maybe only for the uk and it’s a ‘known’ event).

Successive lower highs and higher lows makes for an explosive mix on the 4 hour chart.

I like your thinking on this subject. All I know is that policy changes or disagreements between powerful forces can magnify normal cyclical trends. My MACD isn't really tradable as it plays out over a long period of time - probably of more value to an economist. I think it also worked for the Dotcom crash.

 

interesting reports I picked up recently:-

 

John Kicklighter posted on his twitter account yesterday he is a chief streategist at dailyFX.com owned by IG:

 

"Since the $SPX's run above its 200DMA was unceremoniously called to an end, here's the Dow's - 444 trading days. Longest since June 1987" (he shows a chart)

 

also

 

"Peter Schiff Warns 'Deep State' Unafraid To Crash The Market On Trump's Watch" reported by zerohedge.com 4/4/2018 and many other sites.

 

I've also heard said "What trade war more like trade squabble".

    • 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.
