Check out my EWT on Apple @cheviot.  I think Apple is a great bell weather for stocks as this is a dominant tech led bull.  The Bears are talking about a so-called "melt-up" occurring on stocks and certainly the big FANG/BAGLE tech stocks have been on a parabolic tear.  But the nature of the price action visible on the charts is not sustainable so a melt up is a decent assessment.  If proved true then the reversal will be fast and furious and if seen across the FANGs then it will influence the entire stocks market.

All time frames currently show rally, rally, rally but the wave 5s are coming in fast now and finally we seem to be getting negative momentum divergence on the 1H chart.  There are huge channel over shoots on all the long term charts, which is what one would expect of a melt up scenario. 

If the single most important tenet of investing is buy low, sell high then surely selling the **** out of Apple is the thing to do?  After a melt up comes the melt down...

I want to see a break back into the 1H channel and ideally any relief rally should stay in the channel.  If we see this and then get further bearish moves then there is a chance this is the end of the melt up.  Long way to go yet...

Agreed, that is the first EWT hurdle but of course not conclusive of anything, could just be a larger correction even if it breaks 306.  Still so far Apple blinked right where it was going to if the melt up is over...

RIGHT ...This is my theory ......We are counting big 4 wrong.....It did nt actually end until the spike drop to $186 on 5 th Aug .   IF ...we take big wave 1 as same length as final 5....from $186  we get $311  as shown on my chart.....Wave 4 of 5 is unconventional .....157552435_AppleInc(AllSessions)_20200111_12_32.png.31184da075717833ba6fa043fbed1067.png

Not sure what you are projecting here.  Are you saying the top out should be around 311, which it has exceeded mildly?  If so are you saying that this is the top?  Regarding the unconventional retrace, personally I avoid these set ups as they are too often in error (visible only in hindsight).  I prefer to stick to the conventional EWT and if that fails I have charting and price action triggers and other indicators that will catch a turn even if the EWT is unclear.

Let's see if we get a break lower and back into that blue channel after a possible overshoot and bearish 1-2.

I think this is  part of a 4 th wave correction which might get us to $ 308 before a pull back upwards, then final 5 th wave...then down  $321 maybe .....pre announcement of results  next week...

Hmm, possible @cheviot.  I mean another leg up is the perennial challenge when labeling EWT real time and I see USDJPY heading up to 11100 to close a gap and hit a key Fib level but what is the Jan 3-8 retrace if not a 3-4?  If it is a 4-3 then we are already in the 5.

Possible top out and A-B-C retrace to a failed test of the breakout zone?  A break back into the channel (blue line) is still the key with a lower low and test of the lower channel line around 29,000 being required for any possibility of a sustained drop (correction or otherwise).  31,000 is the first target then 30,480 is important too.

Any of you actually traded the last couple of days?

This is what they call an indecision point, where anyone trading gets bent over a barrel and taken dry without any lube.

All SB providers want you to drill down into the minute charts and imagine that you can see patterns and trends and place your bets.  But what's good for the goose is not always good for the gander.

Yeah its easy to do....Scrambled out of my long £ for £1  profit .....I start making stupid ,mistakes when I think i can walk on water ! A good run can sometimes end in disaster...usually me buying £  or starting to trade the C$ or SWFR  !! 

 I ve had a good few hits on the T Bond , and still short SP 500 and f'''''##ing Apple...although it could nt break top Bolinger band and my long term Raff channel. So may be there s hope yet...😅

Sometimes I wish I did nt either.   I trade it for 2 reasons....It diversifies what i m doing in financials (usually) ,  and my background is farming anyway.  

So yes i might start a Beans wheat corn thread....There are a few IG clients who trade it , looking at their client interest board.....

The Apple business is reasonably sound, consumers keep upgrading as tech improves.  There will get hit if there is a recession, as everyone will, this is normal, but they have a mountain of cash so do not have an existential risk like Blackberry and Ericsson before.  The issue is an existential risk for the Apple share price at these levels, that's all.  Share price and soundness of the business are not necessarily in alignment for public companies.  The stock market doesn't always work as a weighing machine, often as a voting machine, hence bubbles and manias.

Are we there yet?  Not sure.  Won't be until after the fact, like everyone else.  As we come to the last of the big ticket economic data releases and people wonder what a big miss means or hope for a big beat to drive the crazy gang higher I wonder what a near miss would mean.  ISM manufacturing was a decent beat and back above 50, for now, but ISM non manufacturing was mixed, a sign of things to come..?

Apple is at an interesting point now as it looks like a decent shout for a final wave 5 of 5 is there with strong NMD on Weekly and Daily charts.  Tesla has blinked, will probably retrace back up a fair bit before any capitulation but the case for the Top is there.

Can't trade it Short until there is a clear signal to.  Wouldn't trade it Long because of the risk of a fast and major reversal, hmm what's a trader to do..?  Wait for NFP I guess.

Seems like often the best strategy in trading is - not to trade. 🧐

    • Start the conversation The US election is scheduled for Tuesday 3 November 2020, when all 50 states and Washington DC will cast their votes. The vote spans six different time zones, so the first exit polls will be available at around 11pm (EST) when West Coast voting closes. In the UK, that will be around 4am (GMT) on Wednesday 4 November 2020. The election is likely to create opportunities for traders, with price movements expected across a range of forex pairs, indices and commodities in the run-up to polling day. Volatility related to the election could continue until congress certifies the result on Wednesday 6 January 2021, or even until the winner is inaugurated on Wednesday 20 January 2021. What should traders expect to see during the US election? All US markets tend to experience increased volatility in the run up to a presidential election, including USD forex pairs, indices and commodities. That’s because many investors will attempt to lock in positions before the result is announced – using polls to gauge public sentiment. The aim is to take full advantage of the price moves that occur when the country’s political direction is confirmed. At the top level, early indications suggest that the following could be on the cards if one of these two main candidates win: Donald Trump A Trump win could see an escalation of the trade war, potentially causing problems for some US exporters and having a negative impact on the value of the dollar. However, this effect could be offset by reassurances that tax cuts and deregulation will continue – boosting the US economy. Joe Biden A Biden win could see tensions in the trade war cool, providing a boost to US exporters and the dollar. However, these effects could be offset by tax increases for high-income households, and more limited deregulation.   How will markets react to the different candidates? Market commentary by IG Senior Market Analyst Joshua Mahony Stocks Markets hate uncertainty, and historically the perception has been that a new president might bring policies that could be harmful for stocks. This happened in 2016 when analysts were confident that a Trump presidency would spark a market collapse. But, we are now seeing that same fear creep in as people consider a Biden presidency and the potential uncertainty it could cause. Biden is openly more left-leaning, and his policies are expected to be geared towards human needs rather than those of investors and traders. This sentiment isn’t helped by suggestions that Biden would reverse Trump’s tax cuts, and it is likely that markets will rise alongside the potentially increased chance of a Trump victory as we approach the election. USD The value of a currency is supposed to reflect the health of an economy and its future prospects. Many are expecting Biden to be less focused on the markets than his Republican opponent, so the dollar could weaken in the event of a Biden victory. However, this effect could be offset if Biden is able to improve relations between the US and China after years of market anxiety. In this scenario, it would be the Chinese yuan which may benefit the most, with the trade war having sparked huge upside for USD/CNH. Keep in mind that if the wider markets fall on a Biden victory – including US stocks and indices – the dollar would likely rally in the short-term to reflect a risk-off move as investors turn to USD. Gold The prospect of a more expansive fiscal policy under Biden, and from a government which is happy to embark on substantial spending programmes, could provide a boost to precious metals. There’s a caveat here too, because in the past precious metals have also followed the same patterns as the stock markets during times of crisis. So, any collapse in equity markets that may come from a change at the White House could drag gold lower in the immediate period. Plus, while Trump has finally seen the kind of stimulus he would have hoped for, a Biden win could result in a more substantial stimulus package if the Democrats gain a foothold in Congress.   How are you trading?
