FTSE 100 CFD

The UK Financial Times Stock Exchange 100, more commonly known as the FTSE 100 or 'Footsie', is an index of share prices of the largest 100 companies listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) by market capitalization. The index was launched on January 3, 1984 at a base value of 1000, and the index level is calculated in real-time. The FTSE 100 represents approximately 81% of the entire market capitalization of the LSE, and even though it doesn't encompass the whole market, it is widely viewed as the best indicator of the heath of UK stocks. In recent years, however, given the uptick in international companies counted in the FTSE 100, this particular market index is no longer viewed as the best health indicator of the UK economy - that goes to the FTSE 250, which has a smaller proportion of multinationals among its constituents.

channel trade 16th Aug

We seem to have this phenomenon developing recently where if there is a gap overnight then the opening session will push in the direction gapped, rather than filling. I intend to find or do some historical analysis on this soon. I've got tired of how bad MT4 is; I don't think that my brokers help with their lack of historical data. So I switched from MQL to ninja ...

We had a 1h break down but it failed when the CPI data came out. The 5min bar break down didn't work either. I got out at break even. Generally we've had low vol so far this week. We are over sold and still wanting to close gaps towards 7400 so should still be swing long.

FTSE100 - 240 - Ready for the break.

This almost symmetrical triangle is ready to break at some point soon. I suggest that you wait for a break, let the 4h candle body close outside the triangle and then enter a position. If it shoots too high or too low, then wait for it to do a bit of retracement and then jump in. As always, keep an eye on the price action.

14th Aug channel trade (potential up trend day)

I'm hesitant to label today as a trending day. We are over sold somewhat on Friday and reaching for gaps left from Weds and Thurs close. But the 8-9am trading range is holding for the moment. There're no big reports due today. The 5min opening bar break downwards worked for 10 points.

Technically we've breached the 1h opening bar. We've had such a huge move already that I'm reluctant to trade it. the opening 5min bar was 35 points as well! so the 5min bar break down trade wasn't tradeable. I lost a bit trying to find the bottom of the falling knife yesterday. Shorted twice today but have just gone long.

I think we are likely to get the 1h bar break down. The other trackers have fallen. The 5min bar break down activated but hasn't completed still. The thing holding us up is the 2 gaps to fill upwards.

5min bar break down got stopped out! But the 1h bar break down trade worked for 20 points. I can see it going further if not to correct the huge move up last week then in response to some negative headlines recently.

There generally wasn't much movement yesterday. The US session kicked things up a gear though. I've been starting to pay more attention to my watchlist of correlated markets like NASDAQ, SP, DOW, Nikkei, DAX, Gold , Silver and generally the sentiment has been up the last few week days. 5min bar trade worked for bar length upwards. with we get an enthusiastic 1h ...

Bank announcement yesterday kicked the FTSE up 100 points which means getting stopped out of the 1h break down trade. But if you'd had a 1h break up trade ready then you'd be up many a point. Overslept so didn't trade the open but it looks as though the 5min break out wasn't a winner. After such a move and especially on a Thursday, expecting low vol. Correction ...

I have the wombles theme in my head. 5min bar break up worked for 12 points. 1h bar not breached but will probably be down? I just went short on the UK managers data. "Uncle Bulgaria, he can remember the days..."

Opening spike: didn't reach 10 points It reached 8 but I think I would only have got 4 points out of that trade if I had traded. 5min bar break: down was good. 1h. Not yet breached and could go either way. If it goes down I will ride this trend. Gap close: still looking to reach Monday's close which is why I'm bearish today.

Opening spike trade: FAIL Opening 5min bar break: N/A beacuse range was 20 points Opening 1h bar break: broken out on the upside but the range is so extended that it's a risky trade. Gap Trade to 7375: In progress. Events today: EU GDP at 10am, UK Bond auction at 10.30am

A huge movement off fri's close price this morn. so spike trading failed. And opening min bar break trade was risky because of the huge range 8-8.05am. I traded the reversal soon after open when the spike lost steam in the 5min >80% RSI. Looking to copy the pattern laid out by 26th so planning a slow move down to pivot.

Huge moves yesterday. Still frustratingly missed out on a full 3% but still a good haul. Expecting small range today because of the movement yesterday and cos it's fri. Not yet broken out of the 8-0 range but when we do, consider it a trending day. Target for the 8-9 bar length, which if it's upwards coincides with Pivot.

I have my eyes on the pattern mapped out on 18th. You know how sometimes a day can copy the pattern in a recent day? Well we won't get a break without a headline so looking to trade the waves down towards s1. There was a lot of movement before open but on open there was no spike. the opening 5min was 25 points but a break out for bar length worked for 25 points. ...

5min bar break up was good. The movemnet seems to have halted at 9am. A point on the clock. I'm short but if it ticks over 9am before 10 I will go long. But we have GDP numbers at 9.30 so holding onto my seat. The forecasts are normally correct, mind.

A big move yesterday in completely the opposite way from what I'd anticipated. Still if you'd trade the 1h bar break down for bar length from 7423 you would have made 40 points. No spike today. 5min bar break up was good. the other indices are up. We are actually just breaking the 8-9am range as I type so might enter long for 45 points.
