got stopped break even on earlier long. missed a good entry short. now short at 33. lower high structure remains, but it needs to break under the 1hr 200ma and take out a previous low
closed thisnat 8406 for 26 pips
I hold longs on FTSE and hope for increase after CPI data. One long is with ETF called XUKX which is exdividend on Wednesday (about 1%). I hope to see 8500 this week. Day trading only on Nasdaq for me.
hi everyone. currently long. 15minute chart printing higher lows. looking to test overnight high then previous high at 8455
first target hit for 13 pips
The week before US 3 day holiday and week after monthly expiry is positive in most historical cases Bais is more upside into monthly close.
tp @33 from 50.1 short
long out@ 42 from 33
long @8419 for investment run
Having reviewed the economic calendar, it looks like we are in for a bullish week based on the expected results. Of course , this is not written in stone. Patience is key. Plan your entries and let the market come to your price level. No need to force open trades just out of boredom or FOMO. I have a planned order for Dax and XAUUSD but i will see what the landscape looks like in the morning. Good luck!
Ftse - currently back in range mode since Friday 10th. Doji candle last Friday indicating indecision. 8405 is the key price level to watch how the market reacts.
For next week break above the box is bullish and break below is bearish Trade both direction for 15/30 pips what ever direction it takes
Can I ask how you chose the support and resistance point?
Apollo I draw high/low /open/close line on daily chart and use it on lower time frame to decide on entry. There are many indicators for this so try them out which suits you better
The real economy shows people cannot afford the basics. The cure for high prices is higher prices. However I think Rishi Rich is juicing the UK market to win the election. Old Tories have investments
I'm sure Gary Lineker/The Guardian/The Friday Night Marxist Book club are right.
If you cannot win the election, then sabotage it for the incoming government. They will have their hands full trying to balance the books without raising taxes
What do people think about the NASDAQ. Looks like she still has some life left in her yet IMO. Could be starting wave 4 down to the 18140 trend line, then a final bear market rally to circa 19000. Does anyone concur? DYOR
I have the longs on FTSE and Nasdaq because of smell of the rate cuts in the air. UK first to ✂️ I feel.
Finished for the week. I'll not bore you all with a list of po.5t entry trades, but from experience as a full time trader, all you need is a few good quality trades. No need to be glued to screens all day. There's more to life than that! No need to trade hard, trade smart. Have a good weekend.
Apologies for the duplicates. System Issue.

My Mum mused the other day - Picking market tops is not your strong suit! Feeling a little hurt, I quipped back - but G.o.d loves a trier. So I will try again. FTSE top in at 8474.41. Bear mode now activate....DYOR
Alex Charles - you are doing well today with regard to people
disagreeing. lol
Hi everyone. Currently short on Ftse from 35 and looking for 386 gor 49 pips. Hope you are all doing well and have a great weekend.
8406 go long. My comments not appear here this morning.
Must be all the entry trades clogging up the system :-)
Must be all those po s.t entry trades clogging up the system :-)
8406 go long. I do not know if this will appear. My comments this morning went to have the approval.
Out at 8429 because I use leverage and not want to hold over weekend.
isssues posting on here again. infuriating. took a long after the 1hr 200moving average rejection at 8405
strict spam blocker, way better than it used to be though, remember it was 20+ spam posts a day. I didn't use this site for ages because of it.
closed at 8430 for 25 pips. lovely morning.
same. its why i started trading elsewhere too. the spam coupled with trolls
went long just above the 1hr 200moving average at 8403
closed remainder of the short for 30 pips.
Thanks CP for insight
wedge formation results in down move
Down...but when is big question
Apollo very good question? look up on google the discription of rising wedge and it tells you how they resolve
personally, patterns are great as they show the structure. i tend to trade within that pattern until it breaks and then go with the breakout
good morning. sbort at 8440. trend line off the highs
half closed for 10 pips
For the first time in years, FTSE is standing it's ground. Well let's see how long that will last.
I am a bit bemused by all the so-called economists saying we dodged a recession...we haven't had a recession YET, but all the signs are there to suggest a very deep recession is coming. All 5 major markets at ATHs yesterday is one of them. The gargantuan US deficit is another. My opinion but curious what others think
Best thing is to look outside and ask, my closest city is Wolverhampton and it's busy, with all demographics, the only thing I'd say is less younger people out making a nightlife scene. Noticed it weekend just gone in London, and Bristol 2 weeks back, and Sheffield. Someone else will have to chip in for north of the m62. I don't believe everyone is just dashing it on a credit card, especially with rates so high. I've got mates with million pound houses and mates in new builds for a tenth of the price. And they are all good, they're not over exposed on credit, but still spending.
Manchester is thriving and property, where I live, is still pushing higher and higher. it isn't Thatcher's boom and bust but I believe recessionary times are around the corner. Manchester's nightlife is thriving and my daughter's say it us always busy and 'buzzing'.
Reminder : monthly options expire tomorrow folks so there’s usually a temporary sell off. 8400 still remains a key level to keep an eye on. Remain vigilant of OFFERS on here and trust your instincts.
