Easter!?


Recommended Posts

Howdy folks! Can someone with a bit more experience than me please tell me if the easter period is always like this? 

The markets seem slow and I can't read any of my indicators correctly. I mainly trade with GBP, so is it the current break from Brexit in the news that makes it feel so sloooow? Some bad reports in the Eurozone this week didn't have any major affects on the EUR. 😕

I'm reluctant to trade at all for the rest of this week. What about next week, after Easter Monday?

Happy Easter! 🐣

As markets get quieter over periods such as Easter, the liquidity dries up (buy and sell orders at different price points). This can cause opportunity for significant volatility so keep an eye our and be mindful. Can also mean that many 'models' don't work so well so indicators etc should be taken with a grain of salt.

Still opportunity to trade out there ... just not as normal conditions.

    • Natural Gas remains 'the monster of the monsters', it requires no leverage and a lot of patience: lately formed a triple bottom, likely to test a previous support at 6400 and higher, it is a challenge for for those preferring CFD trading, especially for professionals trading high leverage! Otherwise can double, triple or more the equity and wipe out the account as well in a short period of time. It has no limits or previous time to count on, on any chart available! During the good days CAN tumble or spike up 7 -8% in a matter of seconds! IG remains the best for challenging the Natural Gas financial instrument!
    • It’s been a rocky start to the year for Bitcoin, but experts still say it will hit $100,000 — and that it’s more a matter of when, not if. Bitcoin on Thursday dipped below $20,000, falling down nearly 5% over the last 24 hours. This is the second time the largest crypto has fallen below $20,000 this month and it still remains under pressure, according to Edward Moya, a senior market analyst at OANDA. “Bitcoin is struggling to hold onto the $20,000 level,” he says. “If Bitcoin breaks below the recent low around $17,500, there isn’t much support until the $14,500 level.” The latest crypto market crash was spurred by momentary de-risking from Wall Street as many investors are feeling pessimistic about the economy amid surging inflation, a shaky stock market, and rising interest rates. The crypto market has increasingly tracked the stock market in recent months, which makes it even more intertwined with global economic factors.
