Market Indices

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.

BUND - Long

Looking to go long on the third touch of the upwards sloping trend line. There is currently very strong bearish pressure, but for the RR I am seeing potentially from this trade it meets my criteria for a 1% risk. If price action doesn't look good due to the gap down on the Sunday night open my bias could change as price may well play down further. If this is the ...

SPX500: Roadmap

SPX500, D Short

This is based on the Nikkei 225 price action from late 1987 to 1990. The existing action fits well, we are now at early November 1989. This chart presumes one more fast ramp by SPX to 2620, then a sharp 18% fall wiping out all the Trump gains. This would be followed by a 50% rebound, and then further falls into the next few years, eventually reaching the 2007 ...

DOW / D1 : updated count and potential reversal zone

The recent US equities price actions forced me to update the previous wave count that has been invalidated. I think the latest subwave 3 may have been extended (wich is rare to see happening on higher degree wave 5.. but still it can). Plus, the current price action is absolutely not what we could expect after an ending diagonal (what the previous count was ...

Today's surprising rally that followed the weekend with what headlines tried to explain as Korea's redemption and "less expensive" damages from Irma ! Well.. call it however you want to me it fits in two words > stop hunting ! This might be the only actual fuel to this unexepecter price surge that came out of nowhere. Anyway the right question to ask yourself is ...

September FED meeting US fixed income and stock markets are preparing to lose cushion as Fed may announce the onset of balance-sheet cut at the meeting on Wednesday. Termination of reinvestment policy and a smooth shedding of securities means a complete switching off of the "rescue mode” which has been regulator’s state for about a decade. The market practically ...

COFFEE INDEX - Weekly - I think it's wave 3 =)

Again, this is for all you coffee lovers out there. It managed to bounce off from the trend line that it broke a while ago and went back to re-test it. If referring to the Elliott Wave count then we are starting wave 3 now. There is not much to talk here as it is straight forward, really. Also, we are done with summer and now going into cooler season. The ...

Dollar index daily tf - bearish setup

Dollar index broke a key monthly support level last month and is currently trading below this monthly resistance on bigger timeframes. In this setup, I see a bearish pull back on the daily time frame and a good time to buy other currencies and gold as they are all on their pull backs as well technically.

DXY - Daily - Has the time finally come?

We have observing this down slide of the US Dollar and how other currencies have risen against it. But has the time come already or we will still see some moves to the downside? Well, only Trump knows =) I mean, we should have expected a drop in the US Dollar after he came to power. All those promises of increasing US manufacturing and creating more jobs have ...

Dollar Index (DXY) on critical support could retrace to 88.50

Dollar Index DXY is sitting on critical support, a break below 91.00 opens the door to 88.50 which is a confluence of: 1) 61.8 fib of the from 78.97 to 103.57 = 88.50 2) it is also the 1.272 fib retracement from 91.98 to 103.57 3) 88.50 area has also acted as previous resistance on 2 occasions and is the break out point

For 2 weeks now we have been range bound between 7280 and 7440 with clear support and resistance visible. My two plays will be wait for a break of the trend line and get short, alternatively a break above 7440 and i will want to be long. Tomorrow is the 1st of the month and statistically it is the best day of the month for gains so I will be watching closely for ...

DOW / H3 : complex correction probable... but not bull yet

No need to go complex on this description.. the chart says it all.. To me we're heading to a complex correction, probably a "double-three" or "triple three" structure. Why ? Cause there's no strength in this market, Sinewave shows no signs of a bottom structure and we haven't even retraced 13% from the last impulse. Those who are familiar with my scenarios on US ...
