DAX

Recommended Posts

At the risk of precipitating another condescending lecture about how we shouldn't look for turns and how there is only ONE way to trade @Kodiak let me say I agree with you that a turn on the Dax is on the cards.  The Fib 88% is lurking just above current price so a jump to that level is possible to complete a large time frame wave 2 retrace.  There is always the possibility of a double top on the Dax and we cannot yet discount a break through to another ATH but this would be the first non US large cap market to do so...

You have to ask what is driving the Dax though.  Unlike the US, where there is much debate about when we will see a recession or how strong the economy actual is (not very of you look at the data trends with a balanced view rather than a perma bull bias) or if it will only be another manufacturing recession a la 2015/6, Germany is in recession.  The only answer can be that the ECB keep churning out the **** and the Dax addicst keeps lapping it up and perhaps more pertinently the other World indices are being propped up by the US large caps.  So for a turn to happen we probably need to see one on US large caps too.

That said there is no reason why the European indices can't make a move before the US markets open.

We could see a fast move up on the Dax to test that Fib 88% before a drop or a drop from where we are.  Whichever happens, for me we have two scenarios that would play out as a result (excluding a breakout)as follows:

  1. This top is the wave 2 turn and the next move would be a 1 down, 2 up to produce a lower high
  2. This turn is not yet the top of this move and we see a final rally (maybe the famous Santa rally) to close out the move and begin the Great Bear.

Issue for me is that until I see the US large caps top out I would not be confident of any other market topping.  And therein lies the main problem with the bearish set up, there isn't one triggered yet, they are all still in progress.  So my approach is to watch and wait for the triggers across all the main indices.  Can't comment on your Williams indicator as I don't use it but we do have negative momentum divergence building on most time frames, low volume and the Vix is shaping to breakout to the upside so while there isn't a specific trigger for me for a Short yet the case is gathering.

IMHO the only oscillator that has any usefulness is the RSI, all the others are far too noisy and generate more false signals than useful ones.  😋

Your hourly chart for S&P 500 does look like a correction is coming, not necessarily a huge drop though.

hmm yes a bull flag, very bearish ... or try looking at other S&P H1 charts, ... see the difference?

Personally ... I don't look at hour charts any more.  Daily and weekly, mainly.

Possible small scale 1H chart megaphone formation that could signal a reversal.  Also top out signs on all US large caps plus Nasdaq just broke below the recent low on opening.  Not conclusive until there is a close below but worth watching.  NMD at the top (all markets actually) and turn just below that Fib 88% I was tracking.  Add to that the Russell 2000 has punched lower on decent volume and the Vix looks like it is setting up for a rally...

Here it comes.  Hunker down, button (batten?) down the hatches, drown your miseries, and slit your wrists.  😿

    • Here's another 2 LOWER highs
    • Simply basic price patterns can make you an absolute fortune in this game - look at the one above on GOLD! This is 100% why I advocate using swing files - you get to see the market in a different perspective  The chart is UK: WWH - the spread is way to wide to trade this  The 2 high Lows trade to the left of the chart, worked, but you'd of broken even on the trade at worst - This is WHY money management is crucial in this game! There's nothing special to this trading method - It's also an Elliott Wave (EW) method too, but often if you employ strict EW rules you wouldn't take the trade. TIP: If you have software that can search for Elliott Waves, then set it to look for Wave 4's  the blue W4 box on my software tells me that price is in the perfect price AND time zone for a EW 4 If price CLOSES below the #3 low then it would CONFIRM a bearish swing low  For simplicity all we want is for price to validate the trade by trading LOWER than #3 and we'd be in the trade Again simple money management rules - Stop = 25% of the 50 period ATR (20pts) / once up 2 x risk (40pts) stop goes to break-even +0.1 to ensure some sort of profit and then protect 40% of any open profit  Opportunity, excellent R profit potential, excellent risk management = As good as it gets, doesn't guarantee a wining trade though  
    • Just to remind you there was and is no pandemic. As shown in previous posts the 5 year rolling average of deaths from flu and associated pneumonia is around 35,000 per year in the UK (NHS data) so this covid year looks like being just above average. Always the seriously ill end of lifers. But the distribution curve is standard so a few others are caught out every year. Also posted above, of the 40,000 who are listed as dying from flu (covid) the total number of healthy people under the age of 60 who died was around 250 (no pre-existing conditions, NHS data), sad but also about average. Meanwhile the cost of Lockdown is still ahead of us, govt reports estimate over 200,000 deaths from undiscovered health problems (missed cancers, heart problems etc). There will be the collapse of thousands of businesses and millions unemployed once the govt handouts cease. And the loss of liberties, you won't be getting them back any time soon as Johnson says the second flu spike around Dec/Jan/Feb could see 10s of thousands more flu deaths. Yes, about 35,000, - the *****  rolling yearly average! You've been had. Still, lets keep this farce running now the masses are cowered and completely subservient.
