Stock Indices use a portfolio of representative companies (usually spanning major industries) to reflect the status of the whole stock market. There are basically three kinds: global, regional and national. Global indices include companies regardless of where they are traded. Regional indices include companies from a certain region and national indices include companies from a specific nation. Most major and emerging economies have a national stock index, if not several.

Indices are used to get an indication of the market's overall direction. Some analysts use them as a barometer of the underlying economy. Indices can be comprised of tens to hundreds of stocks and each index calculates the weighted average differently. Some weigh the stocks equally (equal weighting), others take company size into account (capitalization weighting) and others use a hybrid method (modified capitalization weighting). Indices are tradable entities that are traditionally traded through stock index futures.

Coffee Index - Daily - Watch the break outs!

For all you coffee lovers, this is developing for a nice trade. I'm not going to over-complicate it with fundamentals, but because this commodity likes to be cyclical, we could see some nice move upwards in the second half of the year. But, of course, this is just speculation, as different political, economical and natural elements could change the game along the ...

Possible short to 12.390 first target, based on Ichi-cloud D1,H4,M30 if break under 12.630. Possible short correction up to 11.562 in the next steps, if the idea works. Good luck :)

I believe DAX is in a bullish market looking at the top 30 German companies however my indicators and technical analysis are telling me that the market is now turning bearish so it looks like it could be a short term long position then a short term position.

Overall bullish strength indicates long trades are in favour, price is slowing up around the 38.2 fib line which is in accordance with the bullish trendline. If price breaks the weekly resistance at 100.47, we could see a strong move up to the 103.7 area and even higher.

The market is very bullish and I'm seeing a potential trendline resistance. If this holds then price should come back down to fill that gap (I've always read that the gap needs to be filled). This will bring the price down to complete an ABCD. I will then be placing a Long as I see price exceeding the current highs.

At this stage longterm wave 3 & 4 are confirmed. Using the projections of the first waves in order to identify a potential wave 5 completion area and define the first entry price levels for shorting the Dax longterm. Latest minor (orange) waves are not yet clear so the initial short entry are may still change. However, even if Macron wins the french elections I ...
