Hi chaps,

I hope you had a wonderful 2018.

Where do you guys think the gasoline price will head? On the chart, it looks like a beautiful downtrend. However, I entered the trade today only to find the price moved up against me. I'm new in energies. Any thought on the causations behind gasoline price movement and any outlook on its future direction?

 

Thanks!

Hi,

Thanks for your thought.

I made devotion of shorting RB because I saw a gap down on Sunday, thought there might be a downward pressure to that movement. Other energies were at this lukewarm zone where price starts to rise a bit and consolidate.

im new to energies, I don’t know if the fundamentals like oil reserves and demand  would support a further downward movement.

i have to admit that I did not follow my trading plan for that trade. I don’t have a trading plan for energies. I thought they are a different market than forex. Still exploring what works the best for commodities trading.

what about you? Do you trade on trend or intraday?

@PipEvangelist I have just been reading this thread and I would say that it is most important to not only have a trading plan, but to also know that your plan can carry from market to market. A good plan based on sound TA should be able to be used across different markets and so when you do move across, why deviate from your plan. Just by looking at your daily chart that you submitted, each historical down gap or up gap was followed by some movement in the opposite direction immediately in most cases. Had you been watching this market carefully, you would have no doubt shorted it a bit closer to the previous massive gap down rather than the very last tiddler gap down. After such an extensive downward movement, it appears to be crying out for a retrace of some sort or another as @TrendFollower points out, but also, it may happen, it may not, who knows. The odds are a lot higher of this happening, the longer the trend continues down. I am new to this as well but it is important not to rush into a riskier trade. There will always be another trade waiting round the corner.

    • The new month kicked off with several stock market indices hitting record highs on Thursday. Japan's Nikkei Average, the S&P 500, and the Nasdaq all closed at fresh record peaks. The gains were buoyed by tech stocks like NVIDIA and Advanced Micro Devices. Stock markets are in an upbeat mood after US inflation figures came in line with expectations on Thursday. This helped shape forecasts for the timing of future Fed interest rate cuts. It extended the ongoing global equity rally and also pushed Treasury yields lower. The DAX also reached a new all-time high on Thursday. Europe opens today waiting for inflation data that should indicate inflation is moving back toward the 2% target. This comes after data showed inflation dropping in countries like Germany, France and Spain thanks to lower energy and food prices. The ECB has maintained record-high interest rates since September. Also on the calendar today is the US ISM manufacturing PMI.   
    • Cocoa Elliott Wave Analysis - 1 March 24 Function - Trend Mode - Impulsive Structure - Impulse Wave Position - Blue wave ‘iv’ unfolds Direction - Blue wave ‘iv’ in progress Cocoa has been a standout performer in the commodity market over the past two years, exhibiting a robust upward trend since September 2022. During this period, Cocoa prices have surged by an impressive 170%, following a discernible impulse wave pattern. Examining the daily chart, it is evident that the current rally, which commenced around the 2200 mark, is approaching its final stages. The completion of black wave 5 marked the conclusion of blue sub-wave iii at 6500. The recent downward movement indicates the emergence of blue sub-wave iv. Based on projections, blue sub-wave iv of 5 is anticipated to progress towards the significant level of 8000. A closer inspection of the sub-waves within blue wave iv reveals a potential three-wave decline, as depicted on the H4 chart. This decline from 6500 is forecasted to retrace towards the Fibonacci levels of 5489-5174. Additionally, the critical trading level of 5000 serves as another pivotal area to monitor for potential support should the ongoing dip breach the aforementioned Fibonacci zone. However, it's essential to note that the development of the wave 5 impulse pattern would be invalidated if prices were to fall below 4354. In summary, adopting a strategy of buying into the dip appears to be the most prudent approach for traders interested in Cocoa. The focus will be on purchasing opportunities towards the end of blue wave iv of 5, particularly if there's a bullish reaction observed at the identified price support levels. This analysis underscores the potential opportunities within Cocoa's current price movement and provides a framework for traders to navigate the market effectively. By incorporating Elliott Wave principles, traders can better understand the underlying market dynamics and make informed decisions to capitalize on future price movements in Cocoa.
