Hi All,

Dow Jones (Walstreet) trading as I write here at 26,845, for how long in your opinion it's gonna stay that high.

I'm just asking for bets, week, month, 3 months.

Just can't wait for correction ;-), is anyone else?

More than 70% are on short positions including mine. This is not a good sign omg... >.<"

It's just waiting game now, but clearly it went further then I predicted. The most important is to keep on it.

I would feel more worried if I would go long on this.

@aquarius,

Those 70% are going against the direction of the trend. They are also likely to be sitting on losses depending on when they initiated their 'short' position. 

I cannot see any signal / indication of a trend reversal so it would be interesting to know what their reason is for actually opening a 'short' position. On what basis? It is not as if there is a clear downtrend in play!

What is their trading style? Go short and hope the asset drops in price!

Well, short term you are right they are sitting on some small losses, but fewer people nowadays daily trades and worry about couple hundred points. The logic is, if the market hits top of its own game, shorting it is a very safe position.

I'm not the right person to converse with about trends, signals and indicators, as for me any attempt to predict huge transactions of smart money is complete absurd.

You only need couple of big trading desks cashing in on their share value at today's prices and the "historical high",

is exactly that.

I'm always prepared to be wrong, but if everyone is positive I'm negative and vice versa, that's just me.

I just look back Jan 2018 and then Oct 2018 as a reminder and remember having similar argument then.

Now, for daily trader 'Trend Following' is probably the best option, and yes if I had time looking at the screen 24h a day, yes, yes and yes and I did it before. Unfortunately, I need to look further ahead now, so I'm trying to be prepared to be wrong for a while up to 400 to 500 points.

This allows me to spend less time looking at the screen and still have some fun.

Stop loss for me is a tool to feed the broker.

It was lovely to wake up this morning and see that the trend direction changed.

I spend years learning Trading Plans, Trading Strategies and Trading Systems, this is all great for historical analysis.

You can always find a candle to shine some light on the past LOL.

But not many people look at the overall picture, when I read the analysts reasons for Bitcoin going up, it makes me lough.

No one took into account that Trump froze access to Banking for Iran. How else Iran would keep using their billions? Bitcoin!

 There is no Trading Plan which will predict peoples moves and decisions and in my opinion any believe in such a plan is a gamble.

Yet again you are disrespecting people because you don't understand their system, as I pointed out to you in the Gold thread this morning  (just before it fell through the floor) going short at resistance is a valid strategy, the same is true for wall st. Many traders will sell resistance and buy support especially at the top/bottom of a range or channel. The recent ATH on wall st. was a clear resistance level and very likely to be sold off and a valid strategy, indicator or signal to go short for a swing trader  (the proof of which you have witnessed today). If wall st falls to 23350ish that would be a great swing trade if it makes a sharp turn back up and continues to rally then the trend trader wins, for now we have to wait and see but trend following not always the best and certainly is not the only strategy to trade, so please stop disrespecting other people just because they aren't trend followers.

DOW Weekly line chart

Broken out of a 18 months consolidation 

Cant see where they will find the fuel to make this rally continue, but that has never stopped them before😏

Could be a false breakout and back in the consolidation?

The key area will be 26 600-26 700 and a retest of the breakout, then its make or break?

The most likely outcome is that it will go up and down or down and up, or vice versa, in rapid and random alternation.

@dmedin

Yes I expect it will for around 2 or 3 hours but at 17:00 or so it should settle down, and between 17:00 and 19:00 it may be possible to pick a side. It could even be last hour but that doesn't matter so long as support holds I will be looking for a long position. If not I will start again tomorrow probably look for support at a new low. 👿

    • The S&P 500, Nasdaq, and Dow Jones soared to new records on cooling inflation and Fed rate cut hopes, despite rising import prices. Key economic indicators and Fed minutes loom.   Written by: Tony Sycamore | Market Analyst, Australia   Publication date: Monday 20 May 2024 05:51 Last week, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq reached fresh record highs, while the Dow Jones closed above 40,000 for the first time, locking in its fifth straight week of gains. Cooler US inflation data fuelled last week's record-breaking run, bolstering hopes of Fed rate cuts this year. The Nasdaq added 2.12%, the S&P 500 gained 1.54%, and the Dow Jones added 490 points (1.24%). Taking some gloss off Wednesday's post-CPI euphoria, import prices on Friday night rose 0.9% MoM in April, the most since March 2022, accelerating from an upwardly revised 0.6% gain in March. Nonetheless, the US rates market started the week pricing in a 70% chance of a 25 basis points (bp) Fed rate cut in September. While there is now a lack of tier one macro data, until Core PCE inflation data on the 31 of May, there is still plenty to keep traders busy this week, including the Feds meeting minutes, flash PMIs, durable goods, and a roster full of central bank’s speakers. On Thursday morning at 7:00am, AI super stock Nvidia's earnings are scheduled to drop, which my colleague Hebe Chen previews here. What is expected from FOMC meeting minutes Date: Thursday, 23 of May at 4am AEST At its meeting in May, US policymakers kept interest rates unchanged at 5.25%-5.50% as widely expected. Fed Chair Jerome Powell indicated a high threshold for additional rate hikes. However, he also highlighted a "lack of further progress" towards the Fed's inflation objective, which needs to be seen before considering rate cuts. This has been echoed by a slew of Fed officials' comments lately, with the high-for-longer rate outlook likely to be reiterated in the upcoming minutes. The minutes will be slightly backward-looking, given that they will not factor in the recent patch of softer economic data, including weaker-than-expected jobs growth and cooler inflation data, which has bolstered hopes of Fed rate cuts before year-end. Nevertheless, clues will be sought from the minutes on the timeline for possible rate cuts and policymakers' views on the inflation and growth outlook. S&P 500 technical analysis Last week's surge in the S&P 500 cash above the March high of 5264 negated the view that the correction viewed in April was missing a final leg lower and, in theory, suggests the uptrend has resumed towards 5400. However, before that can occur, the S&P 500 must first see a weekly close above the weekly trendline resistance at 5300/25is, which comes from the 4818 high of January 2022 and picks up the March 5264 high. On the downside, a break below 5150/20ish, the same level we leaned against in March and April, would indicate that the rally has run its course.

However, before that can occur, the Nasdaq must first see a weekly close above the weekly trendline resistance at 18,650/70ish, which comes from the 16,764 high of November 2021 and picks up the March 18,464 high. On the downside, a break below 17,750, the same level we leaned against in March and April, would indicate that the rally has run its course.

    • AUD/USD surged to .6693, its highest since January, driven by cooler US inflation and China’s property market measures. Upcoming RBA meeting minutes will be key.   Source: Getty Images   Forex AUD/USD United States dollar Inflation Australian dollar China Written by: Tony Sycamore | Market Analyst, Australia   Publication date: Monday 20 May 2024 08:11 Last week was a stellar one for the AUD/USD as it finished at .6693 (1.37%) for its highest weekly close since the first week of the year. In the first instance, the AUD/USD was boosted by cooler US inflation data, which weighed on a tired US dollar and reinforced expectations of Fed rate cuts before year-end. The second pillar of support for the AUD/USD came after the Chinese government announced a raft of measures on Friday afternoon to boost confidence in the Chinese property market. Measures announced included lowering deposit requirements and urging local governments to buy unsold homes and convert them into affordable housing. While more needs to be done to completely revitalize the Chinese property market, last week's announcement appears to mark the conclusion of seven years of pain after XI Jinping famously said, "Houses are for living in, not for speculation." After a mute response on Friday, the announcement's impact has flowed more readily through markets today. Evidence includes a 2% rise in the price of iron ore futures in Singapore to around $117.70 per tonne, while copper futures hit a new high today of $5.1990, up almost 3% at one point, following a 3.5% gain on Friday night. We would expect the impact to continue to extend into the AUD/USD; however, before it does so, there is the small matter of the RBA meeting minutes, in which the RBA sounded less hawkish than feared. RBA meeting minutes Date: Tuesday, 21 May at 11.30am AEST The minutes from the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA)'s May meeting are scheduled to be released on Tuesday, May 21, at 11:30 am. At its board meeting in May, the RBA kept its official cash rate on hold at 4.35%, as widely expected. Despite a higher-than-expected Q1 inflation read, the RBA was less hawkish than feared as it retained a balanced bias, noting that it is not "ruling anything in or out". The RBA revised its inflation forecasts for this year higher, leaving its inflation forecasts unchanged for the end of 2025 and the end of 2026. At the same time, the RBA revised its growth and unemployment forecasts slightly lower. The minutes will be closely scrutinised to determine what options the RBA Board considered at its Board meeting in May and any clues behind the RBA's less hawkish than expected tone. RBA cash rate   Source: RBA AUD/USD technical analysis On the weekly chart, the AUD/USD has made an encouraging move towards the upper bound of the contracting multi-month bearish triangle. Downtrend resistance from the January 2023 .7158 high is currently at .6750ish. Uptrend support from the October 2022 .6170 low is at .6340ish. AUD/USD weekly chart   Source: TradingView Last week's post-US CPI surge above resistance at .6650/70 has increased the chances that the AUD/USD based at the April 19 .6362 low. Providing the AUD/USD continues to hold above support at .6670/50ish, it keeps the short-term uptrend intact and the AUD/USD on track for a test of downtrend resistance at .6750ish. On the downside, the AUD/USD has initial support from the 200-day moving average at .6520ish and below that, a layer of support at .6480ish from swing lows in March and April, reinforced by the February .6442 low.
