Lawsuit against J&J over the opioid crisis.  Nearly 50,000 overdose-related deaths in America in 2017 alone.  Article compares potential outcome to the settlement made with tobacco companies (>$200 bln)

Might be a good one to short.  Almost feel ghoulish profiting from things like this.

Volume is picking up on the downside again.  Might be a good short now.  :)

Has found support here recently, if looking to short I'd wait for the break though looking at the last volume bar it may turn out to be a test and rejection of 13800 before a move back up to test the recent high.

That market looks prone to repeated very sudden and serious drops, what's causing that?

I imagine it is manipulation by the big boys.  I see what you're saying though.  Probably best to stay away from it and not to trade.

Yes, I can just leave it to do its thing.  ;)

I will exit if prices goes back above the 'pivot'!

ok, but isn't that lacking a certain something, I mean that could be a place for an initial stop loss but would you really want to see price race away in you favour 100s of points and then return all the way back to stop you out for a loss? just asking

That's a really good question.  Normally I'd move the stop loss just above break even if it moves far enough away in order to give it more room to breathe, and then occasionally review the trade to look for candlestick patterns etc indicating a reversal or pullback and try to take profits.

An exit strategy adds information for deciding on the entry, where is price looking to get to, how long am I willing to sign on for. It encourages you to look ahead realistically rather than just hoping for a parabolic move after entry.

Consider trailing stops; based on MAs, ATR, set number of points away, manual trail following up to the next higher low.

Or set targets such as; S/R levels, pivot S/R, set number of points away, risk reward ratio eg 1:2.

Or, as you suggest floating targets such as the next reversal chart pattern, indicator cross overs (MA, MACD etc).

If you have already decided on how to get out you are not going to be so worried about what price does in the meantime.

    • Week ahead 12/12/22: Fed, BoE, ECB decisions With little or no corporate data we focus in on central bank decisions at the Federal Reserve (Fed), Bank of England (BoE) and European Central Bank (ECB). IGTV senior analyst, Joshua Mahony, discusses trades around the volatility index, the VIX, EUR/USD and the S&P 500.      
    • Charting the Markets: 9 December FTSE 100, DAX 40 and CAC 40 regain lost ground ahead of US PPI data. EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and AUD/USD look to continue their bullish two-month trend. And gold and natural gas edge higher but oil prices keep falling.         This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD look to continue their bullish two-month trend EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD look set to continue their bullish momentum, with recent worries cast aside for now.    Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 09 December 2022  EUR/USD continues to push higher after recent pullback EUR/USD has seen a more upbeat tone over the second half of the week, with the dollar strength seen on Monday and Tuesday fading to give way to another push higher for this pair. Markets appear to be in a state of flux, with inflationary concerns reemerging in the wake of last Friday’s jump in US average earnings. Today sees the release of the US producer price index (PPI) inflation figure, bringing potential volatility if we see factory prices head higher. China certainly has little to worry about on that front, with both consumer price index (CPI) (1.6%) and PPI (-1.3%) well below target thanks to cheap Russian fuel and lockdown restrictions. For EUR/USD, we would need to see a move back below the $1.029 swing-low to bring about a fresh bearish signal after two-months of upside for the pair. Until then, the bulls remain in the driving seat. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD pushing back into key resistance GBP/USD also saw a somewhat downbeat start to the week, with the pair heading lower from the crucial $1.2293 swing-high resistance level. That August high provides a crucial hurdle up ahead for bulls, with a push through that point bringing expectations of another leg higher from here. The uptrend in place over the course of the past two-months has brought expectations of further upside unless we see that ongoing pattern of higher lows end. With that in mind, a bullish view holds unless the price falls back below the $1.19 level. Keep an eye out for the UK consumer inflation expectations figure released at 9.30am this morning. Source: ProRealTime AUD/USD struggling to maintain recovery pace AUD/USD has similarly been attempting to regain ground today, with the gains seen across EUR/USD and GBP/USD failing to carry through here. This could signal a potential waning of the bullish momentum, with the fact that these pair have been slowing in their ascent of late serving to highlight the potential for another bearish reversal in the near-future. That would tally up with what is happening in equity markets, which have shown initial tentative signs of a turnaround before long. With that in mind, watch out for a break back below the $0.664 level to signal a bearish turn for this pair. Until then, the uptrend evident over the past two-months does remain in play.
