Q4 DEC'20 S&P - ThE Q4 report for technical analysis & trade strategy

Open - 3360.0, 12th Oct 3493.0 target met..Despite the strong Feb-Mar sell-off, for the 7th quarter in a row signals going into Q3 were bullish. These were confirmed as all our topside targets were met with sentiment posting a 2nd higher quarterly low in a row and a gain of 500 Pts. There is the potential for pullbacks, but these should be temporary and the outlook for Q4 remains bullish and the call is to buy only modestly on the open and then at 3198.0, September’s low with a stop loss at 2880...

WEEKLY DEC'20 DAX - This week's technical analysis & trade strategy

DEC'20 contract - A rising trend of higher monthly lows is positive for sentiment and our bullish forecast for Q3 has been confirmed. However, with sellers returning to the market in September from ahead of 13538.0, the window which has remained open since a weekly close at February’s record high, last week’s signals switched to a bearish bias and the call to stay square on the open and to sell the rally at 13258.0 was moderately successful. Despite closing with an up week, signals for this week...

WEEKLY JUN'20 DAX - This week's technical analysis & trade strategy

Jun'20 contract - Having identified the previous 4 week sell-off, last week’s signals were unusual as they pointed to both buying the dip and to selling the rally. This was the correct interpretation as an initial 500 Pt sell-off attracted buyers, but for the rally to attract sellers on Friday and for sentiment to deteriorate by over 600 Pts from the top. This week’s signals are pointing lower, but any pullback should be temporary, so with a good deal of caution the outlook is negative and the c...

DAILY MAR'20 DAX - Thursday's trade idea and technicals

MAR'20 Contract – Bearish signals on the week have been confirmed with initial losses of over 350 Pts. However, with intraday sentiment oversold and buyers returning to the market on Tuesday from close to 13182.0, the 8th Jan Marabuzo line, yesterday’s call was to stay square on the open and to sell the rally. This was the correct strategy, as initial gains were given up and for sentiment to close little changed on the day. Sellers have returned to the market in Asia this morning and with signal...

Weekly GOLD - This week's technicals and trade idea

A near 60 Pt failed weekly rally to open this year and the formation of weekly and daily Shooting Stars highlights bullish exhaustion and is negative for sentiment. However, the pullback is probably corrective and temporary, and buyers returned to the market last week. Although gains have so far been modest and are testing 1573.6, a 50% recovery to the losses posted since this year’s top, signals for this week continue to point higher and the call is to buy on the open and then at 1558.0, the 13...
