Sudden move in SA 40 index

Recommended Posts

How can the SA 40 index move about 400 points to upside when the majority of the shares are in the red?

Knocking out all stop loss levels and then bounces back below S.L.

@Jab,  the spike is showing up on other broker feeds as well, diff time zone so bars not exactly the same but the price is.

No sure I understand the "time zone" influence. this has not happened before as far as I can remember.

Very evident on 5 min South Africa 40 cash chart

I'm assuming you are referring to the bar this morning that spiked back up 400 points before continuing down.

The bottom chart is IG while the top chart (as above) is a different broker showing exactly the same move.

    • Wow. Just look at the volatility. The price action is erratic to say the least. This has happened before on quite a few occasions in the past.  In one hour from my initial post to this post the price action has reversed. It is all about waiting for a clear signal for which direction these indices are going to go in. 
    • So you have to admit this S&P chart is as bullish as you could get, traders have been waiting for the Fed who haven't disappointed, have refused to break lower during that wait and are just staring at that ATH just a short reach away. Barring a war there seems nothing to hold back the continued march onward and upward. Daily chart; 
    • I think we now have the potential and it is potential shorting opportunity on Dow Jones (Wall Street), S&P 500 (US 500) and Nasdaq (US Tech 100) as well as other indices. The FTSE 100 is not looking too good in advance of Brexit. The 'daily' chart is looking rather bearish. The price action is looking bearish. However the price has not breached any of the key moving average indicators as of yet for the US 500. Hence why I am using the word potential in terms of trading opportunity. Some of the ultra aggressive traders will already be short the S&P 500 and other similar indices but if they are wrong the price does not continue downwards then they will be out quickly.
