Description

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. Stock 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). Stock Indices are tradable entities themselves. A currency index is a measure of the value of a specific currency relative to other select currencies. Indices like the US Dollar Index or the Euro Currency Index are used to gauge the strength of those respective currencies.

Dax ABC or 4th Wave pullback?

A strong move higher on Tuesday morning brings this chart into a very interesting daily resistance zone. If we believe the 5 wave sequence is complete then we should push higher into a wave B. The B wave attracts the last of the bulls who will soon be disappointed as price fails to go higher and then rolls over. Today we are seeing a brand new buy signal on the ...

Comments on the chart. Please wait for weakness before shorting. A 3rd wave can continue past the indicated resistance on the chart. Why stand in front of a bullet train? The second thing is this: Instead of trading a wave 4 why not wait to buy the 5th wave? Leave trading the wave 4s to shorter term traders and scalpers who can nip in and out of the markets at ...

Sell below 93

DXY has posted a weekly bullish engulfing bar, but also a Demark 9 Sequential sell set-up. I would sell this back below the weekly bull candle at 93. The Feds are hiking rates - rate hikes are yield increases. Yield up, prices down. This is nothing more than summer bear flag!!

Shorting the Dollar Index (Mid-Long Term)

Macro View: 2018 has been a very exciting year for the dollar thus far. Volatility has sky rocketed in the last couple of months, the FED has indicated a reduction in QE and Donald Trump has been tweeting away. In my view, I believe the dollar holds a more bearish outlook due to the following factors: 1. Rise in political tensions between China and US 2. ...

We have a DeMark 13 countdown sell today in DXY so expect the USD rally to end within the next 1-18 days. I would sell DXY below the low of the 13 print if we close here today.
