I decided to short JD Sports for the following reasons:

1) Long and overextended bull run with declining RSI peaks

2) Increased volume on second failed attempt to break high of 649 - buying pressure exhausted?

3) Increasing volume on descent

4) 10 day SMA below 50 day SMA and the curve of 50 SMA is flattening

5) Candlestick patterns - can see what looks like an inverted green hammer around June 6th and another hammer near 24th

6) Break of up trend line

I am fairly sure the price won't break 649 but I set my stop a bit lower because of the risk/reward ratio.  If it breaks my stop I would take the loss, wait to see if it breaks 649 and if it fails a third time I would go short again.

Pleasingly, PRT confirms the support and resistance lines I had drawn myself previously on the HTML5 version.  :D

From my experience with the RSI indicator, once it gets back down to that 30's mark, it tends to then swing back up.

The high volume sell off in that last volume stick and the price drop in the candle could indicate a move to a short position, personally i use the Parabolic SAR with the Macd as my indicators, havent done too much with the Fib charts.

The problem i see with drawing your own lines on the chart is that you can make them any where you want to fit your narrative, which can screw your chart to suit your mind, not your trading plan, so i would be very careful with that.

with out my normal indicators, im going to say its over sold from the RSI and it will move up not down, but i hope for your sake im wrong.

Be interesting to see where it goes, hope u update it later.

I will.  For better or for worse :D

I suppose I am fitting things into my narrative because I have a strong gut feeling that it's way overbought.  Anyway, JD Sports also have U.S. business and it will suffer a bit from the current appreciation of GBP vs USD.

Anyway, redrawing triangles/lines isn't so bad.  Just keep redrawing them until you get a valid breakout.  :D

That spike looks like a stop hunt, there will be a lot of stops around 600 to 605. Watch-out for a bounce  before it breaks support but a stop hunt can be a signal for the next leg down. 👿

@dmedin

Maybe I should point out, if it's not a stop hunt it may signal a reversal so be sure to watch for that bounce don't be afraid to close out if you don't like what you see. 👿

Someone bought 50,000 shares on the market open (just under £300,000 worth), wonder what they know that we don't?

@dmedin

The point of this chart is simple you sell highs in the Red/Pink and you buy lows in the Blue. Because you entered so late you will have to decide if you want to hold but it's still a sell the high type of market for now.

It's looking okay today for JD Sports short.  Got a ways to go but on the right path!  Would like to find a way to remove the open order overlay when taking pics of my chart.  Just for modesty's sake.  :D

Can't remember but does it not automatically cut out the personal data stuff on chart Save? see below;

Yeah even when I use the 'Save' option it doesn't remove my order stops/limits and running profit total on the left-hand side.  Can't seem to find a way to turn it off!

I think if you collapse the quick user interface it also takes away the trade info, see below;

@dmedin

Yep & Ocado is moving in the right direction. I guess the smarty pants with £300,000 of JD wished he knew what you knew now. Ha Ha Feels good to be right. Like I said yesterday don't beet yourself up to quickly just follow the charts your not doing so badly.

Yes, I think it is on course for a correction!  Like Ocado it may turn out to be a good long as soon as it has finished correcting.  :D

There's still quite a bit of buying interest in this stock, could be that we have a 'shallow correction' followed by another lift-off!  😱

It looks like it's trading in a range, but a range that is 'one leg lower' than the previous range, which was 602 - 640 or so.  Now it looks like it will trade a range of 569 - 600.

    • yes @TrendFollower, there are plenty of long term investors with IG and it's right they should take notice and plan well ahead for any eventuality but traders should be thinking differently and look to be responsive to changes in market conditions. As in my previous post the big indices always look a bit toppy and it's too easy to get in short too soon. Back in 2016 there was talk of impending recession for most of the year and many new traders blew their accounts continually shorting the market trying to 'catch the big one', the get rich quick trade. It was depressing to watch.  Here's another interesting chart of S&P seasonal pattern of average return 1990-2018 suggesting uncertainty in the short term before resumption upward.
    • @Caseynotes, One must remember that on average it can take around 18 months from when the treasury yield curve flips or inverts to the start of a recession.  People talk about Dr. Copper but another commodity that it is worth keeping an eye on is Lumber. When housing construction begins to drop then that can be one of many indicators to have a look at. Others are inflation, interest rate direction, wage growth, unemployment, etc. There are many well documents indicators which signal a potential recession is around the corner.  From a trading perspective one should not worry as long as one is comfortable shorting. Those who are not may struggle to consistently make enough profits during a recessionary period. 
    • @Caseynotes, Yes that is right. I have seen some calling the recession for the past two to three years! They have been calling it as if it is around the corner. Then when it does not come they move the goal posts via obscure technical analysis. When one challenges it, one is deemed negative or a naysayer.  Corrections happen large and small. Investors sell investments to take profits. This has been happening since the markets began. Prices go up and down. Prices are bullish and bearish. Of course trading sentiment plays a big part but for me following the price action and letting the price action lead you to a trading decision is key. Trying to wait for the price action to follow your view and then changing the narrative by giving technical reasoning when it does not follow your view in my opinion will lead to missing out on trading opportunities.  For a sound trader, recessions, should not be feared but welcomed. If one understands how prices react during recessions then one can prepare their trading strategy for this outcome but for when it happens and not before.
