Carbon Emissions

Recommended Posts

For those who are familiar with my threads and posts will know that I am fond of Blockchain. Now as I started this thread for trading Carbon Emissions, I have a very special treat. 

How about this. Bringing Carbon and Blockchain together. Yes, thats right. I want to bring the following article to your attention.

I get your points @TrendFollower but James said somewhere that these are more for ‘google juice’ rather than getting first to the news room. 

They cant post one way trade ideas remember. But can post factual info. That’s the point of community so you and me and others can post ideas and talk about it. 

As the biggest financial betting company they probably know what they’re doing ;)  it’s like when Apple removed the headphone jack and people lost their little minds. Or when they removed the CD drive from laptops. When was the last time you used a CD Rom...

Altho yes. I think if they just alert people quicker to movements that would be good. The article may be good for seo but am I gonna read all that... god no.

The short trade is on for Carbon Emissions. It may go up over the long term but for now a short trade could be profitable. It is currently trading below its 20 and 50 day moving averages and very near its 100 day moving average. One must remember that if this short trade is successful then it will go down far quicker than the 12 month period it was in an uptrend. It will take a fraction of this timescale. 

I have included the chart below as of today.

Some of you will be following another thread of mine suggesting a potential 'Long' Carbon Emissions and 'Short' Natural Gas trade but this thread is focussing on Carbon Emissions. 

The chart is looking very interesting right now.

Around a quarter later and Carbon Emissions is still holding pretty firm for now.

Interesting to compare the chart above with the chart I am including below.

Yes there has been volatility but that is to be expected in most Commodities. The key point is that the price is higher today than it was when I posted 3-4 months ago in this thread. I accept only just but it means there is an 'underlying strength' in the Carbon Emissions market.

I include the recent chart for Carbon Emissions. Upward trends can last a lot longer than one thinks. Have a look at the sharp drops but the trend still continuing upwards. This is where stop loss management is key. One needs to use those sharp corrections to add to your position as long as the upward trend is still in tact. This is more difficult than one thinks. Volatility is something a lot of traders struggle to grapple with.

    • Wow. Just look at the volatility. The price action is erratic to say the least. This has happened before on quite a few occasions in the past.  In one hour from my initial post to this post the price action has reversed. It is all about waiting for a clear signal for which direction these indices are going to go in. 
    • So you have to admit this S&P chart is as bullish as you could get, traders have been waiting for the Fed who haven't disappointed, have refused to break lower during that wait and are just staring at that ATH just a short reach away. Barring a war there seems nothing to hold back the continued march onward and upward. Daily chart; 
    • I think we now have the potential and it is potential shorting opportunity on Dow Jones (Wall Street), S&P 500 (US 500) and Nasdaq (US Tech 100) as well as other indices. The FTSE 100 is not looking too good in advance of Brexit. The 'daily' chart is looking rather bearish. The price action is looking bearish. However the price has not breached any of the key moving average indicators as of yet for the US 500. Hence why I am using the word potential in terms of trading opportunity. Some of the ultra aggressive traders will already be short the S&P 500 and other similar indices but if they are wrong the price does not continue downwards then they will be out quickly.
