This is more like a normal market - big swings back and forth, stopping gullible suckers like me out!  A sign that things are back to normal!

We seem to be at a key support level on cable..50% fib level from the recent crash. If 12300 breaks expect selling to accelerate... 12100 the target

Cable is highly correlated with equities at the moment.. further downside in equities is likely to drag cable down with it

Calmly and systematically. I trade what I see and let the market dedicate rather than second guessing. Having automated orders makes it a lot simpler and easier. Cable has worked beautifully with the technicals.

Save the good stuff for yourself - good idea.

Curious to know what technical 'indicators' are 'working beautifully' on IG's chart.  If you draw a Fib from top to bottom it gives you retracement levels that are completely out of sync with the price.  You've got a fakeout above 50 day SMA.  Oscillators swinging from side to side like a big d!ck in the wind.  Unless you mean the break beneath the 200 day SMA then it looks like garbage to me :)

The 200 day certainly was your signal to sell..no doubting that

The 50% fib level has been a good point of reference. the bulls have defended it since the end of March and will continue to try and do so which is why I've quoted it as a big level. Look back at my chart.. (or even your screenshot) and you'll see what I mean..using your chart the break below the 20 and the 50 day (as they both converge) suggests today was your signal to sell (or be stopped out if long)

Fake outs are part of the game (institutional play) which is why stops have to be in play and respected, to stop retail investors losing all their money. 

Also my reference to technicals is price not indicators. Indicators should be used only as points of reference (at best) rather than for decision making. I would dump the Oscillator, it's not a helpful indicator.

Most retail traders are dying by a thousand small cuts with their tight stop losses and limited sized bets.  Yes they will stay in the 'game' longer but that just means it will take longer for them to lose all their cash.  Eventually, they will.  The vast, vast, vast majority of them.  In some senses it might be better for them to lose it all quickly so that they can move on and do something more productive with their lives instead.

Right, so the price may or may not close beneath 50%.  And if it does close beneath it, it may go lower.  Or it may stop and start going higher again.  (Because Fibos are oft-penetrated, but the penetration is of uncertain duration.)  Who the f*ck knows.  Sounds like TA to me :)

    • Would this be useful to anyone, Prevailing market sentiment graphs?¬† I have found a lot of good success using this method trading stocks. It makes use of the Hull Moving Average. Not just using the Hull Moving average however but I have found that it is surprisingly accurate.¬† Would this be useful to anyone? I will update these graphs most days if people find it interesting for both the FTSE100 and FTSE250 with general market sentiment. I have annotated the graphs so that if the prevailing sentiment is up/long it will show in green and if it's down/short then it will show as red. ¬† I can produce other graphs for individual stocks if there is enough interest. Feel free to fork, update, message me for any questions etc.¬† Graphs
    • LOL.....No. It's the new safe haven asset. It might be the new mans gold. But ... no.¬†
