Nasdaq leads the way for stock indices
Are the markets overvalued? Get involved with the Community discussion: "If this truly is going to go down in history as the tech led bubble then watching the Nasdaq for clues of the end of the rally to end all rallies must be the way to go.  Looking at the monthly chart I see a couple of nice tramlines developing (albeit that the top one is heavily reliant on prior pivots (but that is to be expected in such a sharp, exponential, rally). 

The Weekly chart shows a nice classic progression of Elliot wave counts, parallel tramlines and flag/pennant formations.  Crucially the Pennant, which very often forms at the halfway point in a rally, is signaling a rally end point of 7800-7900.  However in such a strong Bull run we might expect an overshoot of this and the magic 8000 beckons to the markets psychology."

Post in Quick trade ideas
Possibly nice retracement set-up in the offing, short on ITV?  Overnight order short just below today's low (currently 156.3), initially looking for 142.  Tempted to put the stop tighter than the obvious 164ish for this sort of entry?  Thoughts?

Trump and Rouhani exchange words - EMEA brief 26 Sep
Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani came to a head at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday with the US President vowing more sanctions against Tehran, whilst President Rouhani suggested that Trump suffers from a "weakness of intellect."

Trade War - APAC brief 25 Sep
Markets were made to curb their enthusiasm overnight. Trade war realities bit again and the relief rally that had defined last week’s trade dissipated. It’s not a terrible cause for alarm yet, but it highlights how difficult to predict the impact on global trade disruption happens to be.

Risk appetite despite trade wars; Dollar motivation; political risks rises - DFX key themes
Seemingly a routine occurrence for the global financial markets, we saw the state of global trade deteriorate yet again through the past week. As expected, the United States went forward with tariffs on an additional $200 billion in Chinese goods. The terms are for a 10 percent rate on a range of imports that will increase to 25 percent by the end of the year.

The standard, immediate response from China was quickly implemented, but only on $60 billion in US goods. It is not clear the strategy from China as they vowed a ****-for-tat response to what they have deemed unprovoked trade wars, but the country does not have much more room to tax imports from its major counterpart – and certainly not $200 billion worth of goods. This alone moves us into a new phase of a standoff of escalating cost for the US, China and the world.

RIO buyback and industrial metal rally - EMEA brief 20 Sep
Bellwether metals copper and zinc, along with other industrial metals, continue their rally as investors and traders focus on increasing demand rather than US-Sino relations. Rio Tinto announced a $3.2bn share buyback scheme, and whilst the Anglo-Australian miner saw 3.2% gain the ASX didn’t follow suit and ended down slightly. Potential swings on the UK Rio listing on the open.
