How to trade the UK election


Recommended Posts

There was a spike around 22:00 that was untradeable, the algos and professional traders must have made all their profits instantaneously.  This certainly wasn't something that retail punters could take part in.  Maybe we can get some of the leftovers, at some point.  Better get used to that concept, as it's business as usual politically and economically!

yes, the big players had their orders in place and it was all over as soon as the exit polls showed a potential landslide. 

If the exit polls had shown the race was going to be neck and neck then the (er, swingers) party would have lasted all night.

Some pieces I picked out: 

  • A stronger pound hits overseas earnings, and could result in a tough day for miners like BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto, along with the pharmaceutical giants AstraZeneca and GSK.
  • The FTSE 100 is set for a strong open this morning, as UK assets benefit from the election result and the China deal news.
  • Key winners in the wake of the news will be UK-focussed stocks, with housebuilders in the frame for further gains, as the sector is supported by hopes of a return to UK economic growth and the removal of fears that a Labour government would impose a more punitive taxation regime.
  • We should watch out for more international names that might struggle as the pound continues to strengthen. Sectors such as pharma and mining rallied on the day of the Brexit result as sterling weakened, but today the reverse could be in play.

you missed he last line. "They're all in the same party."

 

'Gorgeous' George Osborne was there, and the camera caught him with his usual smug grin.  

You know, the privileged rich boy who has half a dozen cushty jobs - as if he wasn't rich enough already, by virtue of inherited wealth.

Got to be careful what you wish for.  England is heading back towards feudalism - lords and peasants!

which is all very similar to the more recent histories of Russia and China towards which Corbyn would have lead us, a lucky escape then.

It's testing the pivot and going into oversold mode.  If it can hold then will buy once RSI crosses above 30 😺

I'd be concerned that the bulls had a go this morning but couldn't manage any follow through and have now let the bears push price back down through the morning's buying level (1.3356).

So from here I'd want to see the bulls take back control to rally price back up around 1.3400 and then see a pullback before looking to enter. They really should have done a better job on the first effort.

For the stock traders out there, we've produced a podcast 'Stocks to watch around the election'. This is only 7 minutes long and runs through different sectors and specific stock that could be positively or negatively impacted around the election on Thursday. Even if you're not a stock trader it's worth a listen. 

You can find these podcasts on Spotify, Apple Podcast and Google Podcast by searching IG Trading the Market.  

 
 
 
Let me know what you think of it! 

 

I like the fact that the analysts focus purely on money and profitability without getting too political.  That's what we want to see.  (After all, why are any of us here except to make money ...)

Wave Cancel invalid level: 0.85001                 The EUR/GBP Elliott Wave Analysis for the day chart provides a comprehensive overview of the potential price movements for the Euro against the British Pound, utilizing Elliott Wave principles for technical analysis.   Identified as a "Counter Trend," the analysis indicates that the current market direction opposes the prevailing trend. This suggests that the EUR/GBP pair may be undergoing a temporary corrective phase, providing opportunities for traders who anticipate a reversal in the broader trend.   Described as "Corrective" in mode, the analysis suggests that the ongoing market movement exhibits characteristics of a corrective wave. This implies that the current price action may represent a temporary retracement or consolidation within the larger trend, rather than a continuation of the primary trend.   The "STRUCTURE" is labeled as "red wave B," providing clarity on the current phase of the Elliott Wave cycle. This helps traders understand the nature of the corrective movement and its potential implications for future price action.   Positioned as "blue wave X," the analysis highlights the specific phase of the Elliott Wave cycle within the current corrective movement. This indicates that the market is 2 / 2 currently in a corrective phase following the completion of a previous wave cycle, potentially indicating a complex correction pattern.   In the "DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER DEGREES" section, the analysis mentions "red wave C of X," suggesting the anticipated direction for the subsequent higher-degree wave within the Elliott Wave cycle. This implies that the market may experience another corrective phase following the completion of the current corrective wave, providing insights into potential future price movements.   The "DETAILS" section notes that "red wave b of blue wave X looking still is in play as a triangle." This suggests that the ongoing corrective wave may be taking the form of a triangle pattern, characterized by overlapping price movements and diminishing volatility. Additionally, the wave cancel level is identified at 0.85001, providing a reference point for invalidating the wave count. Traders can utilize this information to evaluate potential trading opportunities and manage risk effectively.         EURGBP Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4 Hour Chart,     Euro/British Pound(EURGBP) 4 Hour Chart   EURGBP Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend                           MODE:Corrective                           STRUCTURE: red wave B                           POSITION: blue wave X                         DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER DEGREES:red wave C of X                           DETAILS: red wave b of blue wave X looking still is in play as a triangle .
