DOW and NIkkei are down. Others are up. Currencies under pressure due to the Yellen speech.
I was long at open and short at 7310 which worked well. Trade positive. It really helps trading through the day and just general mentality, you grumpy bastards. Even if I'm down I'll try to enter a mentality where I feel like I have been profitable all day and caught the ...
We've had a bit of movement already in the FTSE. Down because of NK and further selling at open. Up again after hitting support (not other reason to be seen).47
5min opening bar break up worked though risky. We have not broken the opening 1h bar yet. Other trackers are mixed.
The trackers are consistently down .25% and the ftse fell overnight too stopping me out. I went short at 8am but the 5min opening bar of 15points broke up and is still hovering at that level.
The 1h opening bar is broken upwards but I don't think that it has momentum.
The 5min opening bar break up got stopped out. I'm still long anticipating the breaking of the 1h opening bar to the upside.
The other trackers are mostly down a little bit but we have a bit of a climb ahead after NK and Parsons Green.
I've been away on business but now back in London so let's get started! I've been able to make some money on my zulutrade account by following boi prod.
Opening 5min bar break down failed
Opening 1h bar is trying to break upwards. Hesitant to enter with trend because of mixed sentiment in the other trackers.
We've had abig jump down at open. Looking to close the gap by buying now. The other trackers are down a similar amount. 5min bar is risky but is still in profit. Wanting the 1h opening bar to break upwards.
We just had a bit of a move down so I am now long trusting in the support of 7400 and looking that the other trackers which are up.
5min opening bar break didn't quite work. 1h opening bar also failed. I don't think it was the CPI data that caused the drop.
Bit late today - on business in India.
All the trackers are up. Not sure what weekend news made the FTSE jump yet. I'm finding it difficult to go long or short today because of no reason to do either apart from:
The 5min opening bar broke up and is trending and still active.
The 1h opening bar broke up and is trending and still active.
The trackers are all up bar the DOW which has dropped a huge 1%. I have my eyes on the 18th and 29th which opened to huge gaps down. 5min bar breakout was too risky because of the huge move at open - why did it move so much?
All the trackers bar the Nikkei are up today but I'm trade the prevailing negative news stories in anticipation of more negative back and forth with Korea and with the equatorial weather in the west.
buying the 5min bar break would have made 12 points. We have not broken the 1h bar yet.
News is the dominating factor in the FTSE and markets react quite negatively to Trump, Tweets and Tyrannical twats so I'm short. It was risky to buy the oversell at open because last time we did that it went immediately in the wrong direction but today it worked.
If you bought the opening 5min bar break you made 13 points. The 1h bar is not broken but I'm ...
Not much inspiration for today. My head hurts - gym injury. That's all I know.
I thought the FTSE did well to break 4000. I wasn't looking at the time but would have been buying the dips. I'm short but it could easily break 4500 so looking for another dip.
5min bar break expired at a loss. 1h bar is not broken.
Apologies I'm super slow with the update today. Got distracted trying to help a friend find a job. Unemployment is super low at the moment which might explain the general up trend which we still have in this oscillating market. Although we were overbought this morn and broke down on the 5min open bar (stopped out for 8 points) and there's last night's gap to fill, ...
I shall be trying not to buy today. Although the RSI is screaming at me. I'm going to try holding my short all day. Sometimes when there's a big negative news event there's an oversell and you can expect a strong positive revaluation at london open but the korea and Harvey news is just trickling out.
5min bar breakdown was risky because we were coming up against ...
