The Importance of a Good Environment and Rest ~ Objective: a Healthy Mindset for a Trader

When I moved at the end of last week I did not lose anything of significance but I did lose opportunities during and after the move, both in terms of business and personal.

CRUDE OIL: Weakens, Eyes Further Downside

CRUDE OIL: With the commodity remaining weak and vulnerable to the downside, further weakness is expected. This leaves the risk of a return to the 95.95 level on the cards.

S&P 500 Is Turning Bearish After A Completed Five Wave Rally-Looking Back To 1730

S&P Futures reversed lower in the last 48 hours from 1773 through the channel support line connected from waves (ii) and wave (iv) swings. That's a very important evidence for a completed five wave rise and a temporary change in trend. We know that after every five waves market will reverse in minimum three legs. With that said, we believe that S&P Futures is now in pull-back; (a)-(b)-(c) back to 1740-1730 swing low from previous fourth wave. We could again turn bullish after a…

EURUSD: 1.3783 Breakout Is Needed For A Continuation Higher – Elliott Wave

The Federal Reserve left its policy unchanged and maintains the current pace of bonds buying at $85 billion per month as they are still waiting on more evidences of economic improvement and stability. The USD was higher after the statement, but nothing significant and decisive yet.

The EURUSD touched 1.3700 but decline on the intraday charts cannot be counted impulsively, so we are still observing an a)-b)-c) retracement with possible ending diagonal at the end of the pattern. We…

As eyes turn to America, the economic barometer for the world, it’s make or break time for the DOW as it inches closer to the 15693 –a level which marks the top of an unbroken six month long range. Oh, and it's also a level which represents an all time high! Today’s daily bar has closed as a seller bar. Not quite the train track reversal bar as hopes, but proof that sellers are coming into the market.

So where does this leave the FTSE? Well, it’s closed as a high test bar this…
