Futures prices tend to positively correlate with the positions of non-commercial traders. When non-commercial traders are long in a commodity, then that is usually a strong bullish signal. If non-commercial traders have a substantial number of short positions in a commodity, it can be inferred that this group of investors believes the price of the underlying asset is going to decrease. Over time, the non-commercial traders have been right as well as incredibly responsive to market signals when they are wrong.

Why Technical Trading Signals Stopped Working

I liked this interview and there is definitely something to what he is saying, I know 4 or 5 traders who have given up on technical analysis and moved to quant analysis.

Also liked the end when wandered off topic to say his quant analysis had pick up an uptick in Japanese industry and signals of cyclical recovery.

Haven't had a chance to see it yet but the RSI certainly does correspond well with what you see going on in the price movements, at least sometimes.  I like it precisely because it generates far fewer signals and is less noisy.  The MACD for me is visually hideous and unbearably noisy and unreliable, stochs are too complicated and all the rest is just 'pish'.  But if someone finds them useful then it's great.

This is a useful little tip on timing pullback entries and shows how you can spot when a pullback is profit taking (by the bulls in this case) and not a serious attempt at a reversal by the bears. A case of waiting for the bears to obviously fail before looking to enter.

Well, that was pretty fecking painful.

not sure what you are trying to say, you may have heard this from me before though, indicators are just a guide but price action on appropriate chart structure is real so learn chart structure. on the chart above there is down trend and then consolidation, another down leg and then consolidation, a break to the upside then consolidation followed by a break up and lastly a reversal bar. There aren't any pullbacks on this chart.

Learn chart structure.

This is good, you always need a few simple rules that will increase the outcome probability of every one of your entry setups, even breakouts.

My breakout trading strategy: 1. Only use horizontal levels 2. Only use levels that show weakness: multiple consecutive tests 3. Only trade the breakout when you see a consolidation before the breakout or a pullback after the breakout, or both 4. Don't overcomplicate things.

    • S&P 500 has bounced again at a 50% level THT! If I learn nothing else I appreciate that you've opened my eyes to this and stops me from trading too frequently. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
    • U.S. INDICES TECHNICAL HIGHLIGHTS: S&P 500 surges off support, new record high near Dow Jones finds significant support around the 200-day Nasdaq 100 top of channel test nearing again Dow Jones, S&P 500, Nasdaq 100 Forecast: Stocks Staring at New Highs Momentarily the S&P 500 broke the old high created in September, tagged the trend-line from October 2020, and then sprung higher. The volatility around the old high and trend-line were cues that something like this could happen. The October trend-line, which previously had the bare minimum to make up a trend-line given it had only two connecting points, has now been validated as a truly meaningful line of support. Should we see a revisit of that line in the near future it could hold a good risk/reward opportunity for fresh longs. Right now a test of the trend-line doesn’t look likely. Stocks are strong and near highs, in aggregate. The momentum has been fierce coming out of the low, which is normal, now stock momentum is likely to diminish as new highs come into focus. A new record will be recorded once the SPX breaks 4743. For now, looking for stocks to trade to new highs, it appears a Santa rally may be in the works. Until we see pervasive price action that takes out key line and levels, there appears to be no reason to be bearish at this time.     S&P 500 DAILY CHART S&P 500 Chart by TradingView The Dow Jones behaved around the 200-day moving average in very typical fashion. This is what was said last week, “We may see a solid push through the 200 initially, tag off of support below, then reversal higher.” That is exactly what happened. On Dec 1 we saw a slice through the 200-day to support beneath it followed by a recovery beginning the following day. The current leg higher is set to run with less steam, but look for the old high at 36565 to come into play. Since April the Dow may undergoing a broadening top type of sequence, but we’ll leave that on the backburners until it becomes more relevant. For now, staying the course on the upside. DOW JONES DAILY CHART Dow Jones Chart by TradingView The Nasdaq 100 was putting in a head-and-shoulders pattern around the top of a channel dating to September 2020, but that idea was quickly put to rest once the old high in September was met and held. A top-side test here will be interesting, because it will mean that the top of the channel is coming under pressure again. Can the NDX leave the gravity of the channel, or will it continue to keep the rally contained? It’s a big question, because once price escapes the top of these kind of patterns we can see an impressive acceleration unfold thereafter. NASDAQ 100 DAILY CHART Nasdaq 100 Chart by TradingView Resources for Forex Traders Whether you are a new or experienced trader, we have several resources available to help you; indicator for tracking trader sentiment, quarterly trading forecasts, analytical and educational webinars held daily, trading guides to help you improve trading performance, and one specifically for those who are new to forex.
