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.

SPX Weekly – Neutral, close below 50 MA could see a drop to 2400

Since breaking out in November 2016 post US Election, we saw a huge rally, very smooth with mainly shallow pullbacks , no threat to the 20 MA and a nice and flat ATR curve. Since hitting a peak in January 2018 at 2872, we have seen two deep retracements, each testing the bullish trendline drawn from the Jan 16 low at 1,810. The index is currently positioned ...

DXY to resume downtrend soon?

It seems that DXY has been acting within this price range for some time and I have seen it as a more complex pattern. This is the fist time I have posted a WXY formation so any guidance or pointers on these is appreciated, as with all trading knowledge. I anticipate price to continue upwards and finish around the trendline. If that is the end of the correction, ...

Dow jones 30 - bullish bounce at 50% fibonacci level? 21/04/2018

As can be seen on the four hour ( 50% fib level) the dow jones has successfully broken the 24.500 fibonacci level a sustained break below will bring on a price test at 24.157 ( 50% fib level ), in my opinion signifying a rejection of the price and a hard bullish spike starting off the new bullish trend.

First publish, Just connecting dots, open for comments.

sometime i do wonder how come these dots (high and low) can all lined up, it must be the market momentum or sentiment at the time. It appears to be predictable for high or low to stop at this line or that line, but we all know it's far from predictable. Again, long or short depends on you trading for a day or a month, same old game betwen the patient and impatient.

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 ...

The Dollar Index has been stuck in this wedge pattern since the beginning of 2018. After a large fall from the 95.00 area it seems to have stalled and now deciding on whether to continue pushing down, or prove this wedge pattern is the bulls getting ready to go! Between 90.50 and 80.50 seem to be keen bounce areas for price to reverse so keep an eye for a a strong ...

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 ...
