US 500 Double Top??

Recommended Posts

If the price stays the same on the daily chart today and I know it's a big if, has that formed a double top?

This level seems to be a strong area of resistance, 5th test since October. Short from here?

@Nelsy-Boy, @andysinclair and @Caseynotes,

This is a very interesting thread. From a technical analysis perspective one must seriously consider the high probability of a downward move based on the chart alone. Most chartist would possibly agree that the odds are favouring a short move. I personally think that as well.

However, the one thing I have learnt is that never let personal opinion cloud your judgement. I appreciate this is very difficult and at times I find it difficult too. It is important not to let emotions interfere in trading decisions. Though I personally feel that US indices will be heading lower the price action does not warrant any initiating of a short trade. I am not disagreeing with anything in this thread.

@TrendFollower suggests one may want to consider waiting for a trend reversal confirmation before initiating any short trade. 

@TrendFollower likes to look at MACD and Donchian Channel (got that from Turtles by the way) for any trend reversal indications.

    • Brent Crude rally ends, time for the big Bear!
      "Looks to me like my question as to whether the the 25 April turn was a rally end or a simple retrace may have been answered as Brent price dropped hard through the supporting lower channel line.  I would like to see the recent lows broken to confirm but odds are that this market is now heading down.  Could this mean that Stocks have also topped out?"

    • Pound spikes up on news PM May to resign on the 7th of June.
    • Well I do recommend reading 'Technical analysis of the financial markets' by John J. Murphy.  It's old (1999) and you can get a second hand copy so it's not as if he will get much money from you.

    • I do not use EToro mirror trading and never have but am aware they offer it. Mirror trading is not something that I am interested in but they aggressively marketed this for Cryptocurrencies a while back. I I agree with a lot of the comments from @PandaFace. There is nothing like trading in a live account with real money. Trading is very difficult and learning to cope with and accept losses is an area where a lot of traders struggle and eventually give up after losing a lot of money. There is no substitute for hard work and following markets and price action carefully. Using fundamental analysis and linking it to technical analysis to really understand what’s happening is crucial to any trading strategy adopted.
