Signal Trades

Recommended Posts

Having taken another look at the IG provided 'signals' last week and being impressed with the copy order function I thought to try again on demo.

Between PIA and Autochartist they chuck out a lot of signals, so you need to filter them. Only markets you are familiar with and in line with recent trend of the particular time frame.

Do a basic check and be happy with chart structure, expected duration, direction, entry, stop and limit position. Make sure the risk reward is reasonable, there are still some signals where the risk is twice the reward (one of the big criticisms a few years ago) . Copy the order, set size and hit the 'place the trade' button, double check the lines on the chart are as expected. I also decided not to tinker and just let it play out.

I set an order on Friday but wasn't triggered so order was removed, another similar signal come in Monday so I set the order again and was triggered.

No reason not to play around with this on demo and will be interesting to see results over a number of trades.

The trade below is in gold and is running a bit longer than expected but still fine.

    • With the breakout of GBPUSD (would like to see a daily close above support there and ideally a breakout through the daily channel line) and EURUSD making up its mind about whether to breakout or not I look at the third pair in the Triad for clues.  My thesis is that when both of these markets rally it will be on USD weakness rather than intrinsic strength in either one BUT as GBP has been more depressed of later and with so much negativity around about GBP vs EUR the spring back relief rally will be stronger on GBP.  If right we should see EURGBP turn and drop fast and hard and continue to do so for at least as long as the primary pairs rally lasts. And that is what we have seen so far with what looks like an exhaustion overshoot of my daily chart channel line and drop back inside.  A drop away from this area is confirmatory of an exhaustion spike, and that is what we got.  There followed a small 1-2 retrace, relief rally, which retested the channel line but failed to break back though, and another small 1-2 before a short term channel (1H chart) break and failed retest and then we were off to the races. Recently there has been a consolidation in what could be a small pennant of another 1-2, probably the latter and then a fast break down from this formation to where we are now, testing the lower daily chart channel.  If I am right about a period of USD weakness then I would expect EUR to join the party soon and so we may see a relief rally off the daily channel lower line before a confirmed break. Worth watching the Triad to see how things progress over the coming days and during the Jackson hole panto.
