Hang Seng HS50 Trade Idea


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I would like to share my trade idea on HSI, hope to get advise from all the great people here.

1. HSI remains weak on Daily chart.

2. Multiple week long protests and weak GDP weighs on Hong Kong market in the weeks to come.

3. Although HSI may find some relief from a recently announced economic package and any positive US-China trade talks, negative sentiment remains

 

Trade Idea:

1. Current bull on daily chart is strong, it is likely exceed 20 EMA and extend beyond it.

2. Wait for candle to close below 20 EMA again.

3. Short with TP of 25000 for ~1000 pips. SL at 500 pips for R:R of 1:2

Thank you all. I might enter the day after tomorrow if I see a confirmation candlestick tomorrow like a bearish engulfing pattern or doji on the daily chart.

26309 (orange) resistance is key at the moment, if that can hold then the short looks good, below is 24785 (purple) support off the monthly chart.

Some information for those who have never traded this before and would like to trade this:

1. Morning session - 9:15am-12pm (ig.com's spread is usually around 5 pips)

2. 12pm-1pm - lunch time (spread is 30 pips)

3. Afternoon session - 1pm-430pm (spread is back to 5 pips)

4. 4:30-5:15 (spread is 30 pips)

5. After trading Hours: 5:15pm - 3am (spread is 8 pips)

 

Note the time is Hong Kong time (GMT+8). Also, if you have a long term short position, there is this daily "Adjustment for dividend" that will be deducted every morning, it is like forex swap.

Thanks for sharing your idea @tehka, nice to see some new contributors and new actual trade ideas coming out.  For the record I am long term bearish stocks so this chimes with my bias.  However I am short/medium term bullish. 

I do not think the time is yet ripe for the bearish move.  I am more of a US large cap follower myself but Hang Seng is one of the markets that I think may have already topped out, see my "Stock market turning points - are we there yet?" thread for more on this if you have a mind to.

If I use my analytical method on the Hang Seng I see the following:

  • The index may have topped out in early 2018 OR it may have another leg up in it.  It would not be beyond the realm of possibility for a strong push on US large caps to drive a final bullish move on the Hang Seng.  This would be an end stage exhaustion bull run I am guessing but we will have to wait for further price action to see.
  • The rally since 2009 has been less powerful than elsewhere, particularly the US large caps and has put in 3 distinct bearish phases, including the current move.  If the red labeled EWT is true then we will see another ATH and if my Pennant is valid then that high could be around the 36000 mark (all conjecture at this point).
  • I have a decent pair of up sloping channels, the lower of which provided support of late.  There is also a decent horizontal zone of support at the recent turn up (circa 24000).  Additional I have a resistance trend line (black) with a supporting prior pivot that lends credibility to the ATH 36000 target.
  • Zooming in to get a closer picture on the weekly (2nd chart) the move down to Nov 2018 could be an A-B-C (bullish) or a 1-5 (bearish) so no help there.  The rally was stopped at the Fib 62% (a classic retrace level so maybe an A-B-C then?).  However at this point there are too many scenarios to pick out a clear lead candidate so all I can say is that the April 2019 turn could be a retrace end preparing for a larger drop (the price action since then might support this) or only the first wave of a larger retrace to maybe to the Fib 76/78% or the wave 1 of a final bull run to another ATH.
  • If we look at the daily chart we can see that there was Positive Momentum Divergence (PMD) at the recent turn and again an inconclusive form to the bearish move down.

All in all I would not be keen on a Short at this time and in fact I would want to see a break through the 24000 support level to get Bearish confirmation or price action and other signals at a higher level of a credible bearish turn.  Further price action will add to the picture and hopefully clear up some scenarios (or ideally take them off the table) but with US large caps rallying I would sit back and wait on this one, for now.  If we see other indices turn bearish that may change things but bear in mind that in an ending phase there is typically a lot of whip saw price action as Bulls and Bears slug it out for dominance so watch out for Bear traps.  I firmly believe that all the major indices are connected and the next big shock will be global not local.  In terms of targets, I think that any break of the 24000 level signals a long term Bear market so I would be think much longer term but then I am a long term swing trader so horses for courses on that.

With bonds underperforming and analysts keeping a cautious eye on the inversion of the yield curve, the likelihood of a recession is still up for debate as investors seek stability in Treasuries. For me it's a 'naw dawg' on the recession / short. 

Despite continued protests, the Hang Seng is up 2.2%.

If price ends the day around 26200 followed by a red candle tomorrow below 26000, this is a pattern known as "doji evening star" and is signal the price may reverse down.

True the London session has been weak and so far resulting in a pause bar on all the indices but may see some action come the US session. Ftse is the exception which is trying to play catch up.

From fxstreet. Quote

"Hong Kong's Hang Seng index is currently down 0.80%. Notably, its 50-day moving average (MA) has crossed below the 200-day MA. That is the first death cross (bearish crossover) since July 2018."

Hang Seng has fallen heavily this morning despite a stong wall stree last night. It has crossed back down from 20 EMA up to 20 EMA down. If price ends below 26000 on daily chart tonight would be a good short entry

The Asian markets took a strong hit 4 hours ago but can't find any news that caused it, China indices trying to rally but HK struggling.

This market is a tricky one, it has one foot in both the western and Asian camps, clearly it is influenced by the China markets which are suffering due to the trade war, all the econ data out of China is poor and continuing to drift down. The HK market is also clearly influenced by the western indices and is trying to maintain the same shape and structure as them.

The western camp seems dominant at the moment so I would look to them for the lead in the future direction, if Dow can jump the current resistance I would expect the HK to do the same.

Look out for a twist in the story before any bull rally @tehka, there may be more whip saw price action to come on the US large Caps and European indices yet before any assault on fresh ATHs (or failure to make it).

Personally, I would not go Long until I saw a clean break through overhead resistance and would not go Short until I saw a break of the long term supporting trend line (purple line in my charts).  That said, If I saw a good technical retrace bearish move turn back up, say around the Fib 76/78% with other indices doing likewise I might be tempted to a close stop Long there (i.e. further down from where we currently are).

Once again thanks for the post, it's nice to get some actual trade ideas coming through.

    • This is not an acceptable explanation for me unfortunately, I am fully aware of the need to move spreads and I had accounted for that. Especially at the open of a market, but your spread was totally unreasonable the spread on DEC contracts is already at 130pip standard, to increase it to 400pips and hold it there even after 5 mins of trading. As my execution was a 09:06 the main market volatility had already been accounted for.   So disappointing after 6years being a customer and on a profitable trade as well: 
    • Dear @MB1470, Thank you for your post. Please note that dealing spreads on shares are subject to variation, especially in volatile market conditions or other unusual circumstances.  Market spreads can widen significantly, particularly at the beginning and end of the trading day, and minimum spreads may exist. Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • This morning at the market open on NOVO DEC contracts. On Spread Bet.    the spread moved from 138pips to close to 400 pips? How can this be reasonable the candle is only displayed on a 15-2min time period not on smaller periods. At market open 09:00 ????? How is this even remotely reasonable?
