FTSE100 Rally to new all time high


Mercury

Recommended Posts

Just to follow up on recent chat with @Caseynotes on the FTSE100, here are my thoughts:

After a solid period of Bearishness I believe the FTSE100 has rejoined the Indices pack (Nikkei as well) in a rush to new all time highs (Nasdaq just posted another in out of market trading).  My Weekly chart shows a wave 3-4 retrace (pink labels) and we have not yet seen a negative momentum divergence on the Weekly or Daily charts.  Zoomng into the Daily chart we can see a pair of parallel tram-line containing the Wave C of the retrace to W4 turn and a breakout of the upper line to set up a Long trade opportunity.  I believe the Wave 1-2 move was also contained within the tram-lines and the breakout forms a motive wave 3 that will carry for some time (Blue labels).  The strength of the breakout confirms this assessment for me.  I am waiting to see a flag formation within this wave 3, although it may be hard to spot as I believe FTSE100 has a long way to go to catch up on the US indices.

On the Hourly, as discussed recently elsewhere, I do see a Flag formation that has been broken to the upside with a nice short retest in the last couple of hours.  If this holds and the market turns up again we could be on for a rally to the magnet that is 8,000 on the FTSE100, which I believe we will see before the end (famous last words and all...)

Note: the above, and all my posts, are NOT tips or assertions but analysis for discussion purposes only so please do feel free to disagree but please do so with reasoning (even if it is just your gut feeling).  As traders we have to make our own decisions and blame only ourselves if we get it wrong!

On the Weekly I also see a triple Bear test and rejection of support zone in and around 7200.  On the Daily the second test was an excellent pin bar, then Elliot Wave theory kicks in to explain the third test as a 1-2 retrace on a strong rally move so all-in-all a strong Bullish case was building before the Tram-line breakout, which sealed the deal for me on a purely technical footing.

Regarding Brexit effects (if any), ask yourself how the FTSE100 has responded since the referendum?  In the immediate aftermath there was no end of people coming out in the media, pointing to a falling FTSE as evidence that the result was bad for the UK economy, where are these people now?  For me Brexit with be a classic study of confirmation bias when it comes to the economy in that people are (probably, can't say for sure of course...) using Brexit (and other things) to justify their emotional biases.  Anyway, perhaps a discussion for another thread...  For now I am content to ride the rally, assuming it continues (and exit for profit if it reverses), and look for the next move.

Updated 1 hour chart this morning reveals an adjusted Pennant formation (drawing these things as they evolve is a process! Easy after the fact...).  This morning early opening price action looks to be bouncing off the lower area of the Pennant, coincident with the apex of the previous triangle (which is also W4 of the recent rally phase).  This is a common retrace level where the overall direction remains unchanged.

A break back up through the Pennant and ultimately of the recent highs confirms the rally remains strong and for the FTSE100 is only about 50% done.  A strong break through the Pennant to the down side negates that and suggests a more significant retrace in the offing.

Any views from anyone on the FTSE, please?

    • Man, WazirX getting hacked is scary stuff. Remember how I kept ignoring the warning signs with Hotbit? Lost my whole portfolio when they just dipped out of crypto altogether. Nightmare!   So now I'm all about finding exchanges that are super regulated, haven't been hacked ever, and actually have this thing called Proof of Reserve, like a safety net for your coins.   Been using Bitget for a while myself. They list cool new projects before pretty much everyone else, which is awesome. But the real kicker? No hacks, ever! Plus, they keep a crazy high reserve ratio, like 200% - way more than anyone else, and they even do monthly reports to show everything's on the up and up. Super transparent.   This crypto world is wild, so gotta play it safe, you know? Just sharing what works for me!
    • Cocoa Elliott Wave Technical Analysis Function - Counter-trend Mode - Corrective Structure - Emerging Zigzag Position - Navy blue wave ‘c’ Direction - Navy blue wave ‘c’ is still in play Details -  Prices breached 8626 to confirm the progress of wave c (circled). Further sell-off is expected toward 5,000. Wave (ii) appears to be resisted below 9,000. Thus, wave (iii) downside is favored. The current movements in the cocoa market illustrate a clear downward trend. Cocoa is approaching the lows seen in May 2024, continuing its fall from the record high reached on April 19, 2024, at 11,722. Since that peak, the commodity has dropped by 30%. This downtrend is anticipated to continue, potentially bringing prices down to the 5,000 mark in the upcoming weeks.   Daily Chart Analysis A close analysis of the daily chart shows that cocoa completed a significant bullish impulse wave cycle starting in September 2022, when prices were around 2,000. By April 2024, this impulse wave had increased prices by over 430%, reaching the all-time high. According to Elliott Wave theory, impulse waves are usually followed by a three-wave corrective structure. The current decline from the all-time high is thus seen as a corrective phase, expected to develop in an a-b-c wave pattern.   In this scenario, waves a and b (circled) have already finished, and the price is currently in wave c. Projections suggest that wave c will likely extend to 5,000 or lower before the bullish trend potentially resumes. This expected decline is consistent with the typical behavior of corrective waves following an impulsive move.     H4 Chart Analysis The H4 chart offers a closer view of the sub-waves within this decline, showing a potential 5-3-5 corrective structure. In this structure, wave c is currently in its 2nd sub-wave, wave (ii), which seems to have completed below the 9,000 mark. The price is expected to break below the 7,000 level to continue its decline towards the 5,000 target. However, any further extension higher for wave (ii) should be limited below the 10,323 high, preserving the integrity of the corrective pattern.     Summary In summary, the Elliott Wave analysis indicates that cocoa is in the midst of a substantial corrective phase following its all-time high in April 2024. The key levels to monitor include the 9,000 mark, which wave (ii) has already dropped below, and the 7,000 level, which could indicate the continuation of the decline. The ultimate target for wave c is projected around the 5,000 mark, aligning with the typical behavior of corrective waves. This analysis highlights the importance of closely observing wave structures and key price levels to predict future movements in the cocoa market, offering valuable insights for both short-term and long-term trading strategies.
