Chart of the Day

“When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.” – Jacob A. Riis

The aggressive squeeze continues in High Yield and it’s going to be key to see how this resolves for the next structural move across the board. As we have been discussing, our outlook on Junk and the broader markets has not changed in terms of a bigger picture view.
Once again, it’s all about the FED. The turn this has taken is simply > Hawkish FED = Pressure ON / Dovish FED = Pressure OFF. We will discuss this today and how it’s important to both trade the hand we are given but also understand the limitations of this simplistic view and how we think this is likely to resolve. The Quick-Take is: nimble and tactical on intraday opportunities but use the broader action to position swings.

Chart Update

“The greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others. And the moment you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep, you become a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom.” – Osho

Today we will be reviewing 3 key charts we have been focusing on this week:
ES > all about the 2600 mark from a day and week close basis now as we wait for Powell to speak today. Don’t forget the Buyback Blackout Period and q4 Earning…
USDCNH > trade for the move back to the opposite side of the range is done and now it becomes very interesting. Remember that this is going to be key for a lot action across the board.
DXY > Moving along nicely for now. Focus will be on how we trade through Powell and how we settle this week but no change in outlook. Our Euro and Yen swings remain in play.

Darwinex Update

Another step in the right direction. Darwinex will now offer direct market access (DMA) to single stocks. We are all looking forwards to the upcoming webinar where we will get more background and details. Stay tuned…
If you are focused on continually improving performance, wanting to operate in a professional environment and potentially earn additional monies from your trading activity, then Darwinex is really a no-brainer.
Darwinex allows you to legally market your trades for a 20% investor success fee without any of the hassle involved in setting up and getting regulated for a managed accounts business. Furthermore, this is done protecting your intellectual property by never disclosing live trades and in addition, offering you a whole host of analytics, as well as access to a serious investor pool. Basically, you have a lot of upside with no downside.
Please note that we are talking about a serious platform, for serious traders, with realistic expectations. This is not something for gunslingers, get-rich-quick-aficionados and/or storytellers. You don’t necessarily have to be consistently profitable yet but you do have to have the intention of doing things the right way and the Darwinex platform offers you the possibility to do this. Furthermore, Darwinex independently rewards traders by investing their own funds backing the best strategies (current allocation is 4M Euro per month).
Advantages of registering through 50Scouts:
  • gives you the opportunity to get backed by 50Scouts funds.
  • allows you to benefit from a number of special member webinar sessions; ranging from best practices, strategy optimization, attracting investor monies and special updates from Darwinex available only to group members.

Wednesday Update

“But the real object of the Game is not the money, it is the playing of the Game itself. For the true players, you could take all the trophies away and substitute plastic beads or whale’s teeth; as long as there is a way to keep score, they will play.” – George Goodman (aka Adam Smith), “The Money Game”
