Natural caution against the geopolitical events and the fact that the expected correction didn’t occurred yet are increasing the anxiety among investors.

DAX30, FTSE100, SP500 Indexes declined today, and the slide in Dax30 was the most expressive.

I maintain my view reported in my previous analysis and expect the continuation of the decline.

Happy trading.

I never do this but I was so sure Dax would fall today that I left a short open from yesterday.

Today a significant Gap Up did make me sufer. I shorted again believing the Gap would close but did not.

At 7:42h I closed both losing positions, considered this as a validation of the Island Reversal from yesterday and waited for a trigger to get long in a reversal entry and gess what: “Jackpot”. :-)

Today, 22nd July, DAX presented a good trading opportunity and I’ve made my Long entry:
Financial Instrument: Ger30 -> Entry rule: Reversal
TP2 9739.0 TP2/Entry distance 70.5 TP2 RR 2.2
TP1 9712.0 TP1/Entry distance 43.5 TP1 RR 1.3
LONG 9668.5
STOP 9636.0 Stop/Entry distance 32.5
RR -> Reward / Risk
Both Targets were reached. :-)

It’s incredible how this Index rise and the market don’t care about bad financial or geopolitical news.

The earning season and the FED are boosting the stock market and it doesn’t even pause to rest.

It has been said by several experts, that SP500 has still more space to rise, at least until 2150/2200.

The famous and expected retracement is still to came.

I’ve to be honest, I miss a good short. :-)

During the following days we might be presented with the so expected retraction in the equities Market.

The fall of the Amazon was crucial to the behavior of the markets during the day and the good news of the “Durable goods orders ” weren't able to hold the stock prices in the Major Indexes.

The leading World Index SP500 fell today confirming the strong bearish pattern from last week.

FTSE100 and Dax30 also declined mainly after the opening of the american session.

Gladly my short target in Dax was reached today (9536.5). :-)

U.S. stocks are ranging after the adoption of sanctions against Russia from the European Union.

The last “Momentum”, which have been fueled by profits that topped analysts’ estimates, is slowing down.

Today, the trading volume was relatively high in the SP500.

The geopolitical risk remains high but corporate profits have supported the valuations in the main Indexes.

The Earning Season continues to support the rising markets.
Twitter has presented exceptional results, beating analyst estimates and today the market will be impacted with a day filled with relevant news.
Geopolitics and the direction of U.S. interest rates are the major risk factors.

With overvalued markets and the Fed stepping out of the way, the presentation of results below expectations lead investors to take profits and the markets today slided significantly.

For the particular case of DAX30, the barrier of 9456.5, identified in previous analyzes, was broken today.

Tomorrow we will have the famous NFP (Non Farm Payrolls), which could push the index to the next support @ 9212.

Just like a friend off mine said, “It pains me to think that I profit from such a disaster”.

The day was filled with relevant news and the numbers weren't so Bad, but prices are looking to find some support.

The Analysis posted yesterday was fulfilled and the first target @ 9212, was reached today.

I'm grateful for the extraordinary trading week. :-)

I enjoy watching and reading the financial news throughout the day and observe the change in the headings and opinion from Bullish to Bearish and vice versa.

Today I was presented with a Bullish morning and a Bearish afternoon … A better definition for this: “A cloudy day”. :-)

After the significant slump from last week it’s difficult to find buyers at the major Indexes, so we will most likely observe a continuation of the decline, as we still haven’t reached a major support.

Stocks have been consolidating throughout the day and at the end of the day, by 18:30H they slided significantly. The daily range of prices have been falling, and the market is getting ready for the next move. DAX30 Index (Spot Market) ended today’s session with an “Inside Day”, while Dax Futures broke yesterday’s minimum by 18:30h, i.e., two hours after the close of the European session. Dax Futures priced @ 9186.50 at European Market Close (16:30h), it reached a minimum @ 9080.5 and Closed @ 9101.0, ie, 85.5 points below the Spot Market.

With this major difference ​​between Spot and Futures, tomorrow we will certainly be a very interesting day in the markets.

The correct interpretation of the relevant news that will impact the markets tomorrow, can help us to increase our trading success

Major Stock Indexes were little changed and closed near the opening, creating a “Doji” Daily Candle.

The slump occurred since the end of July, did not stop, not evan to “breath”, although not yet been touched we are close to major supports in all Indexes, the uncertainty of a “Doji” Candle, should not be interpreted as a potential unambiguous inversion, since there is still room for the decline.

At these levels, buyers begin to appear, so we will probably be presented with an increase of the Intraday noise.

Relevant Facts:

- Yesterday we witnessed an increase in tensions in Ukraine.

- In the last two days, important companies have announced disappointing results.

- Argentina defaulted

- Creation of “Novo Banco” in response to the collapse of Banco Espírito Santo SA.
