Saw article on DailyFX, a bullish pattern.  Have no idea why that might be - viruses in the East, and less chance of a rate cut in Jolly Old England perhaps?

so different people will see different aspects in any chart and award different ratings of importance. The 'bullish pattern' is solely concerned with chart technicals and not fundamentals.

I would read the above chart as seeing the sustained bearish attack on the support level (141) has been beaten off, at least for now,  with the bulls breaking the down trend line and putting in a recent higher low and then a higher high and will now be looking to attack the next resistance level (Fib 50). Near term bullish.

Well.  It's not a bullish pattern but it 'appears' to have gone in a bullish direction.  Let's see.

?what's not bullish about it, it's broken the down trend line and the triangle and the wedge to the upside. Has, rather than 'appears' to have, or am I looking at the wrong chart 🙂

I've demonstrated for anyone looking that you can plan and have rationales and limit your risk and use TA and still lose money hand over first.  That's my good deed for the day.  Maybe I've done enough to get into heaven and God can let me die now and put me out of my depression?

yes but what about the actual trade review, you know, the one you do after every trade? what actually was wrong with the set up or entry or was it all good and you are happy that you did everything right and the fail was just down to probability?

 

I think so - waited for a dip after the breakout from the triangle.

fair enough, what about in-trade management, you would have recognised the FTA (first trouble area) which was going to be the immediate prior high before the dip, you would prefer to see a strong power move through that level but if not at least tentative probing but a rejection is a big signal the bulls were just not strong enough. So from there you should perhaps have been thinking escape. There is often no need to let a trade run on to the stop, often a trade will come back and test the entry where you could hope to see reloading but if not probably worth just shutting it down in most cases.

I was thinking escape, but I was also thinking give it room to breathe.

Bottom line is I get kicked whatever I do 🙂

again down to probabilities, rejection at the FTA then rejection again at the original entry point is usually enough to persuade it's not going to work and so bail and sit back and watch, if the bulls rallied then there was the chance of a breakout entry passed that FTA.

    • Hey @pravid17 I hope you're well.  In the leveraged trading industry there are brokers who don't hedge client's exposure and brokers (like ourselves) who do hedge client's exposure.  In a perfect world the exposure of short clients would net off the trades of long clients however this is not always the case. Our hedging model allows us to take an exposure in the underlying market for the remaining exposure which doesn't offset - This way we don't need to hedge every trade, worry about profits of our clients and results in lower costs for hedging in the underlying market (commissions, interest etc.). So say 60% of IG customer exposure in the ASX was long and 40% of exposure on the ASX was short. The 40% would net each other off but there's a remaining 20% of customers who need to be hedged to cover their positions. We go into the market and hedge this.  We make our money primarily through our spreads and overnight funding  with other fees making up a small proportion of our revenue. I would like to remind also that IG is regulated by several bodies globally, including top-tier regulators like the UK's FCA, Germany's BaFIN, Australia's ASIC - This should be quite reassuring from a dealing execution and transparency perspective.  I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other question 
    • A survey from Reviews.org, which featured 1000 Americans, found that as many as 1 in 4 US subscribers may quit the service in the next year.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 23 September 2022  There was an interesting breakdown, but the main reason was affordability. Only 18% said they would move to a cheaper competitor. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the numbers. Netflix subscription woes Netflix Inc (All Sessions) could be in for a rough time ahead over the next 12 months if a new survey is anything to go by, which was conducted in the US. Out of the 1,000 adults that took part in this survey undertaken by Reviews.org, around 25% of those that were covered said that they would be cancelling their Netflix subscription within the next 12 months. Now, it says with that 25% of US subscribers to Netflix considering leaving, not to join a competitor, but mostly because of pressures on household bills. This is how it is split: rising cost of subscriptions - 40% inflation - 20% a lack of content - 22% spending more time on the services of others - 18% So you can see, a minority said they were going to other services, such as those provided by Disney Plus or Amazon Prime. The cost of Netflix has risen dramatically this year as its basic plan increased by 11% in January and its other plans by 20% to 25%. Now these were the first price increases for three years, so that itself is relatively new for a lot of subscribers. Netflix share price Let's take a look at the Netflix share price. You can see on the far left hand side of this chart the COVID lows at $290.39. We saw a whacking great increase there of 141% to the top and the record high in Netflix shares back in November 2021. And that was when subscriptions were rising, people were paying more for their services, and it was all humming beautifully. And then all of a sudden people started questioning the numbers of streaming services they were undertaking with some deciding to withdraw from Netflix. All of a sudden the big drops started coming through with profit warnings and sales warnings. We've recently hit a new low of $162.50. Since then there has been a little bit of an increase. We're currently trading at $232.75, but we are down by a margin of 1.75% in today's session, which reflects this news that we could well see a relatively large drop in subscribers for Netflix in the US within the next 12 months.
