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.

    • Going back to my FTSE analysis I see things as follows: 2 scenarios present themselves, other than fresh ATHs that is: 1) the move down to the turn on Thursday was a wave 1 (blue) off a larger scale wave 2 (purple) that should retrace, maybe in a complex fashion with a lot of whip saw price action maybe not, let's see; 2) the recent rally and drop to a new low was a 1-2 (red), which indicates a much stronger leg down is immanent. The #2 scenario would only be valid if price holds below the previous high (circa 7300).  I favour the #1 scenario. There was PMD on the 4H chart at wave 1 (blue), which suggests this is a turning point.  Also the 4H chart shows a 1-5 wave down to the 1 blue, which would be motive and suggests a trend change to the bearish side. There was strong NMD at wave 2 (Purple) which is consistent with a large scale retrace move. Just as with the US large caps, after the stop and turn up there was a sharp retrace drop to the Fib 76/78% zone before the current rally.  As the FTSE was in out of hours at the end of the week this market has not rallied as hard as the US markets.  Also we may yet see fresh ATHs on US large caps while the FTSE100 only puts in a counter trend rally. If we do see fresh ATHs on US large caps and only a retrace on FTSE and probably Dax and Nikkei as well then comparing these markets will be instructive for calling that top on US large caps.  We may, alternatively, see only a retrace on US large caps too if the top of the market in already in. Conclusion: we can anticipate a bullish period on all major indices BUT should guard against a quick reversal on FTSE 100 that would set up scenario #2.  Either way this market looks to have topped out so the coming months though to the Autumn will be critical to deciding things on all indices, and likely quite a few other markets. I am Long the FTSE 100, coincident with my Dow Longs and will swing this up for now but my bearish bias for the long term will keep we watchful for a break down of this rally and I will not be pyramiding this one, far too risky until things are resolved.
    • "....more broadly we have seen currency wars but these have not really captured the imagination of the MSM yet" Actually I'd argue we have had currency wars for some years already. History shows it goes in the following order: Currency war, Trade war, War. (Regrettably).  If I recall correctly the market falls of early 2015 (about 20% down) were blamed on Yuan being devalued by Chinese manipulation. Way before Trump! "....we suddenly get a super massive set of central bank policies that drop rates to zero" Again I'd say that has been going on for some years. Arguably you could say about 35 years since the Plaza Accord. Once fiat became unaccountable (no gold standard) the politicians proceeded to spend, spend spend =debt,debt,debt. Expect MMT  (US Democrats pushing modern monetary theory) to allow them to continue in that vein. Again history says these currencies will all eventually disappear, like species, approx 95% no longer exist.  Broadly I agree with what you say. The present financial system is critically sick that's for sure. It has propped up assets with huge doses of QE and zero rate interest policy (expect more of that when the ECB meets next month). You are correct about the size of stock markets. If the global market was a horse the bond market would be three legs of it! I digress.... However, if you are faced with massive debts then here are your options: 1) Default - Argentinian/Zimbabwe style. Not likely, at least until all other options tried - as that's the end game. 2) Grow the economy at a fast enough rate to meet and exceed future repayment obligations. In a global low anaemic growth environment? Unlikely. 3) Inflate like mad. It's the only viable option. You could, reasonably say, that after 3 massive QE sessions and ZIRP and now  NIRP that deflation is winning. Arguably it's all been a waste of time / money. Where's the kitchen sink? Presumably more of the same and then some helicopter money? It seems to me that this is more in line with Japan (targeted 10yr bond rate = 0%) which someone said in the 90s was  "...the dress rehearsal. The rest of the world will be the main event". Trying to get inflation without destroying the USD global reserve status is unlikely in my opinion and you can't help but feel that some sort of Bretton Woods global RESET will eventually emerge. It's certainly what Russia, China, Syria, Iran, Turkey etc are angling for.....and their central banks have been big buyers of bullion recently. That's why I'd recommend holding gold. Not as a trading strategy (which is what I appreciate this forum is). Nice sharing these thoughts with you>
    • So it looks like my crazy set of channels on the Daily chart is still holding well.  The breakout of the last channel line, which coincides with a nice zone of lateral S/R was retested but failed as I noted in my previous post.  I got Short off an initial rejection from this zone and Resistance line with a tight stop but price never came back so nicely in on a couple of Short positions and stop protected at BE.  Price moved back through the monthly lower channel line (purple) and put in a quick daily candle failed retest and dropped away.  It is possible we could see another retest of this resistance zone before any further move but a break below the 5760 level would be indicative that the Bear has resumed and obviously a break of the previous low around the $56 mark would once again bring $50 into focus.
