Description

A bond is a contract between an entity that borrows money and a creditor that lends it to the entity. When you purchase a bond, you are effectively giving a loan to the bond issuer. With government bonds, also known as sovereign bonds, a national government borrows money to fund its operations. The bond specifies what interest rate (coupon) will be paid and at which times during the life of the bond and when the principal funds, also known as face value, will be returned. This is called the maturity date. Bonds are an asset class by themselves that offers more stability than stocks.

The return on a bond is known in advance, which makes them low risk investments, although the risk is related to the credit rating of the bond issuer. If the coupon rate is higher than the prevailing interest rates, a bond becomes attractive so the demand for these bonds will increase, driving up their price. If the bond interest is lower than the prevailing interest rates, their price will drop, so bonds are inversely correlated to interest rates.

Unconventional weapons and strategy for an unconventional war.

I say this is a parabolic war!! Bitcoin taught me a lot about this. Well, I say the US30 is a parabolic situation. If they don't wanna play fair, why should I approach the market with conventional weapons? No! This is a strange war. So - I'm not gonna play by conventional rules. I don't think that's gonna work. Overall in trading, the issue is not winning a ...

Looking again at the Big Picture

There is a resistance ledge that seems to be failing on the weekly time frame of the US30. Why do I think it's failing? I see three candle wicks in the ledge, which informs me that there is serious bear pressure in what is a bear market (at this time). Am I saying it is going to fail and go south? No - I'm not saying that. What I am saying is that the greater ...

End of day action on EURUSD and US30

In this video I look at an interesting compression on the 15 min EURUSD and quickly review a critical price position on the US30. This follows up from my other videos. A strong EURO is not great for the Ger30, so if it strengthens around now, there could be more bearish pressure on the DAX. The DAX tends to rule the worlds markets and has not suffered as ...

In this video I explore how the US Dollar strength affects stock markets and the EURUSD. When I was very new to trading I had not known about all this - and late in the game I wished that somebody would have told me sooner. Shorter term bounces of the US dollar can cause traders to exit positions too soon. Around this time day traders could find that ...

War could send stock markets south

Financial news is something I avoid in general. However, the major events in the news like talk about war is one that I pay attention to. Wars generally sends markets south for a few weeks to months. The markets have been very nervous of late as there has been the beating of war drums, to launch an attack on Syria. I'm not interested in whether there will be a ...

Interesting conflict of trends and patterns on Wall Street

In this video I show what I think is a pattern that creates a greater probability for the south. I explain more on how I draw my trend lines, which may not be what the gurus teach people to do. The main feature is a contracting pattern on the 4H which stand to be beaten by the big trend from the Daily. I'm not saying the pattern will break soon. Price may ...

Wall street and many other stock indices are at critical positions. In this video I drill into the action today, from the monthly down into the 5 min time frame, approaching end of the day's session. The GER30 is in a critical position and fighting hard to stay afloat. It rules the world. In general the GER30 does not like a strong EURUSD. And the US30 does ...

Is a financial crisis ahead?

In this vlog I explore mainly the shape of the younger Bitcoin parabolic correction with the much older and seasoned Wall Street (US30). The emphasis here is in the nature of the struggle to avoid correction and the similarities in form. The parabolic struggle seen in Bitcoin on the daily time frame, could well be reflected in the US30 on a weekly time frame. ...

Wall Street: Probability estimate for the south.

I'm looking at a daily trend line that has emerged on the US30. I know it's not perfect. Trend lines are never perfect because they are best fit. Some have been jumping for joy as price bounced off the 200EMA on the daily. That may be short term good news. I'm comparing the 2018 approaches of the 200EMA with that around November 2017. Back then it was a ...

Yes there may be some visible and tradable pattern in these on careful analysis. However, the degree of volatility seen over the last two months may not 'respect' traditional ...
