The exit polls will give a fair idea whether is will be worth staying up late to watch the constituency results come in one after the other and watch the swing of 'yes/no' which if is a close run thing will also swing the market but be prepared for high spreads and high min stop loss levels.

There are a few online sites touting for webinar sign up for the US nfp normally held on the first Friday of the month but don't bother as it's on the 10th of Jan this time round instead. 

The upcoming Friday though sees not only the ISM US manu PMI at 3pm but also the minutes of the last FOMC mtg are released at 7pm and can also move markets.

Dow is down 280 pts for the day after US air strike on Iran. Is this a trend or just reacting to recent events.

The early reports were breaking around 1am and coincide with the first large H1 red candle on the Dow which precipitated the retrace of the entire Thursday leg up. But no doubt there will be plenty who claim the move was caused¬†their TA or 'predictions' though ūü§Ē.

I can send you the template if you want, you then just need to install the Add-in in order to use the formulas in the sheet for streaming prices. The Add-in is $10 a month: https://www.excelpricefeed.com

Here's the current sheet:

Cripes, they should come and read this forum ... although with that being said, I did get burned holding open positions when the Iran thing happened.  Seems like a bit of an unpleasant time to be trading with sudden bursts up and down.

I don't like to hijack this thread, but IG clients have been mainly short for the past 6 months, and more than 2/3rds short since the S&P500 crossed 3000 back in October.

As the market goes down clients go long and as the market goes up clients go short:

no worries about hijacking the thread your additions are most welcome,especially coming as an afternoon refresher.

back in October.

What concerns me as I look back on the charts is that I didn't buy and hold at that point.  Surely that's better than nipping in and out, day trading on pivots?

and just to reinforce the point that clients are usually on the wrong side here is the latest FXCM SSI showing retail moving into shorts as price starts climbing.

Yep, me too. I am one of those clients that went short as the market went up...looking back going long (and holding) at any point in the past 6 months would have been profitable. Trying to pick turning points is almost impossible, the trend is your friend...easier said than done though as you start to think "it can't possibly go any higher, must drop soon..." :D

not if done right, think of the lateral zig zag price takes to get from A to B, more miles = more points than as the crow flies, more work too though obviously.

    • ūüĎĬ†... PM announcement due at 4 pm. ¬†
    • Lockdown until the flu virus (corona) is beaten for good. Victory at any cost.¬†You know it makes sense!!!!!¬† ¬† The absolute state of these¬†clowns ... Apparently, SAGE now saying that if we don‚Äôt have an immediate, month-long lockdown Christmas is off. The cost of such folly will mean millions of people won‚Äôt be able to afford Christmas anyway. The virus will still be waiting in early December. @allisonpearson ¬† The answer is to lock SAGE up for a month and let the rest of us proceed sensibly with our lives, while backing medical professionals to improve treatment and care of the infected, reducing mortality. Lord Moylan¬†@danielmgmoylan ¬† Reminder that Covid-19 has a similar fatality rate as common flu and that the 5 year rolling average for deaths from flu type infections is around 30,000 a year, was before covid, during covid and will be after covid. It is typically the last battle of the old and sickly and has been since forever.
    • Glad to see your posts at the Indices thread. James16 and company at the Forex Factory had the great phrase ‚Äúday trading off the daily charts‚ÄĚ. That and trading the hourly ranges is what I have been doing recently. ¬†
