Possible bullish catalyst for year end rally?

Looking at JPM and GS ...

if they can break higher would give impetus to a new move higher...IF they break down, may stop the rally in it's tracks... 

Long with tight stop... possible reverse on a break down.

Xmas charts..


Looks like one more push up to 5670 level possible, especially with the predicted "father christmas" rally. If break the mini channel a move to the lower side of the channel, IF that breaks then rally is over for a while.



DAX is forming a clear triangle, a clean break above 5800/5840 targets 6200/6350 (61.8% retrace of fall from highs)  On the downside it looks like 5580/5530 is key, followed by 5250 (50 % retracement level, and resistance/support)



Weekly chart show we are still near some strong resistance 10500 level, a clean break above this can target 11200, possibly ending this rally.


Daily chart shows a bit more detail..range bound for last few 10200 key on downside, 10500 key on upside.

DAX wedgie

Today the Dax has broken that wedge again..2nd time in 2 months..a sign that the trend is weakening even if we don't stay below it.  May just be the long awaited correction of the rally since March *bullish scenario) or the start of a new down leg (the bearish scenario).  A 10% correction probably would be healthy.

Once this leg down finished , probably right to get bullish scenario new the bearish scenario a wave 2 up which could challenge the highs but not break them..

Still in up trend and making NEW highs since March..BUT....

the RSI seems to be lagging this move...bearish divergence.. watch 1.5230 level...

DAX 30 mins

4 days of gains GONE in a few what?  Chart shows we are near support and have bounced from these levels before..IF it fails looks like we target the blue line, which is the trend line of the wedge from March lows...IF THAT one breaks (convincingly) then we finally get our significant correction.. in the bullish case, or a drop to new lows, the bearish case.

USD approaching...

Here's a link to a post a while ago for USD JPY form bear flag 85 ish...

here's the latest...

AUDUSD again....weekly chart..

I can see some possible bearish divergence setting up...
todays move looks like this pair is weakening.. BUT still need a break through that up trend line.  HOWEVER the neg divergence is a possible early warning sign, LOOK at what happened in 08..

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

closer look at AUDUSD

Looks like may be turning...
short , stop at .9420.  Looking for a test of main trendline at around .9130 ..

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Another antipodean currency...

The NZDUSD looks to be ahead of the AUDUSD , in the break of the trendline.  Now re-testing that break.
RSI and MACD looking toppy..remember weekly chart so LONG term stuff..

something to keep an eye on... AUDUSD

AUD USD  WEEKLY CHART Looking a little stretched..but still in uptrend...keep eye on

1. either a break of the trend line

2. or a signs of weakening new high but not on RSI... (negative divergence)

3.  a break above horizontal line and USD is clinically dead!!

Wednesday, November 4, 2009


In this rally from March 09 the leading indices have been the NASDAQ (USA) and the DAX (GERMANY)

BOTH of these have broken their rising trends in last few days..KEY now is what happens next...

A.  FALSE BREAK...prices recover enough to "get back" in the uptrend channel

B.  Prices recover and "Test" the underside of the broken trend, and THEN continue fall

C.  NO recovery from here, prices fall until next SUPPORT level

We should know soon enough!!

Decision time!

With the big move on Friday, many markets are poised at the edge of the precipice...
FTSE 100,NDX100, DAX, DOW,and EURO.

FTSE broke minor uptrend within larger wedge, so possible move down to 4850/ 4800 on cards.  Key will be if when we get there DOES it break larger wedge?

EURO poised for a break of the large WEDGE...not YET broken..

NDX 100  has been the leader in the rally since March, and HAS already broken down through the major WEDGE formation...IMPORTANT keep eye on this...

DAX is poised on the edge of the wedge  leading index in EUROPE..very similar to NDX 100

DOW  has NOT broken the wedge yet...looks poised for a test approx 9500.

Friday, October 30, 2009

Short Dax and FTSE...looking for test of recent lows at min..

short DAX..

Looking for a test of the lows yesterday and even the blue dashed line...if it holds may be LONG entry..

OR a break back above 5625...brings bull trend into play..

FTSE similar...key levels on upside 5200


Thursday, October 1, 2009

DAX...break or not...

Looks like DAX is soooo close to breaking that wedge (smaller one within the LARGE one from March lows)..if it can get below 5550..then good chance to head to 5350, and maybe 5200 (lowe boundary of larger wedge)

cable....key level broken

looks like a classic head and shoulders 1.52..

And the chart from June..looks like we are entering wave 5 even further downside possible...test the lows? 1.35?

Thursday, September 24, 2009

Shorts..even at the end of summer!

Looks like several things are topping out (or bottoming - depending on which way you look at it!!!!)

to name a few, cable (looks like it has formed a top), oil, see chart (top), dollar (bottom), euro (still forming top)..

euro strength looks to be the default where do we go to?? Pound, dollar, yen???

short on strength ...see dax post earlier..

Here's the dow with comments from different political and industrial leaders basically pronouncing that the recession is "dead" and the recovery is "well on the way"...

to be revisited in 6 months see where we are???

dax hourly..short idea

short here or on a bounce..stop above the 5365 from wedge breakdown

Thursday, September 17, 2009

Silver due a correction..if not more?

looks ike we tagged the upper line of the trend channel...good short , stop close best head to lower trend channel line...OR maybe even further... A break above that uppe rline on good volume says get out of short!
