I previously told people to get ready! Some weren't ready.
The market seems to have selected a 30 min ATR trend line pattern to follow south. How far it will go - nobody knows. This is the essence of trend following i.e. NO TARGETS. This is hard work!
If you can't see a rising contracting wedge, and price struggling near the top - and if you don't know what that means, why are you trading a live account? Did I say there was a guarantee of anything? Did I predict anything? I did NOT!.

Panic and doom are transformed overnight by relief, hope and greed - in what is widely known as the biggest Ponzi scheme in the history of the world. Google and YouTube are your friends.
This is not a prediction - it is an expectation based on hard facts that are out there.
Yes - the markets are always right as I hold no power over the future. But there is a...
Yep - the algos play out the addicitons of their masters to cheap money: low interest rates, REPO pumping, and the implicit guarantee from the FED. But an itty bitty virus that disrespects world leaders, has everybody flummoxed and reaching for safe havens.
In this screencast I show a bit of algo action and some smaller time frame trends which can last for over...
A 'black swan' event is something out of the blue - that creates systemic risk. The 2019-nCOV (virus) is potentially one such thing.
The markets have not been prepared for this - at all. Could it be the pinprick that pops the 'tech bubble' that influences markets globally?
The shock waves of this itty bitty virus are totally unexpected. I go into some price...
Central banks around the world are coordinating in a last stand to prevent global meltdown. So - they're about to decide massive liquidity injections into 'their economies'. China, the USA, Singapore are already on board. Expect Germany to follow cuz the German economy is on the brink of a recession.
What this could mean is a number of things:
1. The punters...
Looking at US30 we can see a clear uptrend as we have been for some time now. We have recently made new highs once again and we are looking to make a pullback before possibly moving upwards. Personally I will wait to see price action around the marked zones and will place a trade if one presents. IF we break to the downside we could see a nice drop before pulling...
Get ready! There are only two directions for price; UP or DOWN. In this screencast I show why the zone around 29000 could be the most important. See the broadening wedge. Price could go either way.
If you believe that the FED and Mr Trump is gonna save the world, go long at 29000. If you believe a crash is coming take a short. If you believe 29 is a prime number...
I go through a number of time frames and explore the price action and probabilities.
No predictions, No recommendations. I'm short on this market at this time.

The DJI was dented significantly over night by three main events:
1. Trouble in Iran.
2. China - withdrawing some companies from the LSE
3. North Korea - powering up to cause America a headache.
There was panic selling in the middle of the night which started with the news on Iran.
Important trend lines up to 2 hourly were penetrated.
Could this be the...
The DJI, S&P500, Australia200 and the DAX all went wild today.
No predictions in here. This is just the big picture of the daily time frame.
I have to say that I am totally surprised by the DJI pump north. This markets is highly overvalued something like 17-19 times that of fair value for stocks comprising it. I won't go on much longer about that, we've seen...
Recorded from my laptop in a lunch break - so turn your speakers right up.
I'm stalking the DJI carefully for any sign action. This is a market built on hope and false confidence. It can't go on forever.

In this screencast I explore the importance of the 4H ATR trend line in association with SqM switches. This is about taking early notice of areas where stuff may happen.
The future hasn't been written as yet, and I don't do predictions. What I see is the chance of a 4H trend weakening, based on the historical a patterns of the DJI.
If the 4H ATR flattens...
As well as hundreds of indicators based on historical data leaning highly bearish, strong possibility of a head and shoulders pattern forming on both the 1D and 4H charts. Printing more money can only work for so long, before a correction is inevitable. Bubble could be about to burst.
The DJI is approaching an all time high of about 278400. This market has become pretty volatile mostly at 30 - 50 minute charts.
Although the DJI is pushing north madly, it is a market that is being moth eaten. It's instability is likened to a Jenga tower. The instability is also seen in trend switches down to the 5 minute level.
BRACE! Anything can happen in the next few days. The DJI is at a critical zone on the weekly. 'Everybody' is waiting for more QE and lowering of interest rates. In other words the FED is likely to blow the bubble even harder.
But there are crises in the bond markets and currency markets that weigh on this market. So fear is not just about stocks in the market...
I had flagged that the DJI and NASDAQ were in trouble some time ago. I told everybody to 'GET READY'. Some were hypnotised by POTUS's assertions that the American economy is doing "fantastically well". Yes he said so and I have the reference.
The data on ISM that triggered this plunge/correction was not brand new information at all. It's only because the ISM...
