Stock Market Tumble Allows More Trade Opportunities




With a stock market tumble allows more trade opportunities.

What a few weeks it’s been, and may still not be over for a while, trade disputes have been stepping up a notch, the mention of around $200 Billion worth of tariffs voiced from Trump and the Beijing reaction from China has meant a stock market tumble recently.

Both Washington and Beijing have stuck to their positions, however we could be upbeat about this, so long as no further trade spat happens or deteriorate between the two.

Not forgetting Brexit, a word close to peoples lips both in the UK and Europe, but also in North America.

We took an opportunity to enter in to some more trades to take advantage of the stock market tumble, with the DAX  we’ve got in to a buy trade on what appears to be a bounce in price, this looks to come from an area of buyers waiting at around the 12000 level, this may last until a possible area of sellers at around 12500.

In the FTSE we got in to another buy trade from the move up in price from buyers at around the 7200 to 7300 level, we feel this may go back to pre-economic worries of around and above the 7600 price.

We’ll wait to see what happens when Theresa May is set for talks with the EU on post-Brexit Irish border problems, this could lower the value of the pound, so could potentially help boost the FTSE price.

Waiting on a CAC 40 Breakout




Waiting on a CAC 40 Breakout soon.

The CAC 40 the benchmark of the French stock market index and closely linked to the German DAX and Euro data.

It’s currently wedges in between the areas of Buyers and Sellers who are dug in not prepared to give an inch, with a small area of breathing space to gather momentum for an expected breakout

The French shares have been moving higher so we believe this may be a breakout overpowering the sellers at around the 5505 area and continue to an upward trend and benefit our trade.

However it does appear that price is moving in to a triangle trend line so price may get squeezed by the pressure of the Bulls and the Bears before the CAC 40 Breakout is achieved.

Who’s going to blink first?

FTSE 100 Trading Between Zones




FTSE 100 Trading between zones, we are still in our trade at a profit.

Amid fears of the UK potentially heading for a no deal Brexit, this in turn will weaken the Pound and currently does so, however the FTSE 100 does benefit from a weaker currency.

Other economic news has seen the recent sanctions by the US government on Russia which has led to the commodities selloff,  the FTSE 100 contains a number of mining and oil stocks, a lot of these can be effected by Commodities in Russia.

With note of the economics, for a while the FTSE 100 trading has mostly been contained to between the two zones, an area of support holding buyers at around the 7600.00 price, while the area around the 7800.00 has been keeping the FTSE 100 in check and acting as resistance stopping further upward movement.

The large amount of sellers at around the 7800.00 will need to be weakened if the FTSE 100 is going to reach the 8000.00 price mark.

Trade Worries to Quick Short the Dow




At the end of June we took an opportunity with current trade worries to quick short the Dow Jones.

This was a quick move, although not at first planned as we had hoped to stay in the trade longer to allow for the risk/reward ratio to get better.

The Dow along with other stock markets around the world become victim to fearful trading recently shown to be blighting the European market sessions.

In the markets the is still trade worries about Trump’s wording and planned tariffs against Chinese products, and it could be continued that both China and the US are not going to be resolving the trade issues any time soon, however never say never and these things can surprise us when we least expect.

We conducted some analysis and prepared to take a trade, although perhaps for a little longer, but decided a quick “scalp” as it turned out for £1,042.00 profit was good for the fund.

German DAX Trade




Looking at the DAX to be slowly gaining some ground, we’d entered the trade on the DAX on the up move.

We did have some data out this week regarding the Euro, German Prelim GDP q/q, German ZEW Economic Sentiment and the Final CPI y/y which can have an effect on the DAX strength.

Looking at the chart we could see price entering an area we believe could have some more sellers and even in to the 13200 area, we were in good profit on the trade and didn’t want to risk a pullback.

We closed the trade and made some money for the fund.

Shorting the S&P 500 for Profit




While the Index was between zones we got a position shorting the S&P 500 for Profit.

We could see on the hourly chart the had been a struggle between the Bulls and the Bears recently, an area of resistance was showing at around the 2680 price with support at around 2660.

We knew it won’t be long before a potential breakout, as the month of April had been strong for stocks in the US and so the S&P 500 could look set to cover its previous losses for the year.

The Bulls could be coming into positions of strength and taking the index higher.

Wanting to close out our short position, and settle for £62.60 profit.

FTSE 100 Index has been steadily heading back into a positive territory





The FTSE 100 Index has been steadily heading back into a positive territory from the last few weeks over concerns had been intensifying about a possible trade war between the US and China, though in the last couple of days these have cooled for the moment despite comments from President Trump over including the threat of a further $100 billion of tariffs against China.

The FTSE 100 had lost about 1.4% and had been partly weighed down by a continued recovery in the GBP from post-Brexit lows.

FTSE 100 Index

Due to the fall we had been stopped out, but had managed to get an order back in as we still predict that in the coming year might still see the likelihood of the FTSE 100 Index breaking the 8000 mark.

The index is now up at 7,190 points after a late rise and we believe it will be a long and steady wait to the mark.

Profits in a Downturn




So what a week it’s been in stocks and to make profits in a downturn and investors pulling money out.

Since the news that stocks were being dumped as investors started to worry about US economic news, the Dow Jones dropping over a thousand points, (over $1 Trillion was lost during the week.)

 

profits in a downturn

Analyst consider this to be a temporary correction which seems the likely case given the almost continual climb in the stock markets in recent months.

We took a couple of quick trades thanks to the work of our analyst who suggested we could still make some quick profits in a downturn until the correction and stocks head the other way.

So we took a chance and it turned out pretty good.

Now we wait for the correction and the continuation of the stock market climb.

FTSE 100 in for the Long Haul

With the rapid climb of Indices such as the FTSE 100, in the last couple of weeks, and with the prospect of further highs with Brexit news.

With a correlation with GBP, a weak GBP means a lot of FTSE 100 companies will produce greater profits, so a reach of 8,000 for the FTSE could be hit this year, we’re optimistic, albeit with a few dips along the way, it’ll be reached. We’ll be monitoring movements along the way along with other indices, sometime we can see a correlation with the movement of different indices and we may see a upward trend for others aswell as the FTSE.

Sit tight and wait it out for FTSE Long.

Correlation trade on GBPUSD and FTSE 100 12th Oct +£52.10 Profit

A representation of how correlation works. As the value of pound rises, the FTSE 100 decreases in value, and why? Well because assets require more purchasing power when the pound decreases in value. Aiming for 13180 as a trade target but we were happy with current profit so closed out. However, in hindsight, we should have held for a little bit longer because it absolutely smashed through our target and is in the 133 area.
