Hello Everyone. I live in North TX. I am very new to the stock market - actually just setup an account and am browsing around to see how things really work with the account. Have bought into 3 different penny stocks so we will see if anything hits there.

 

Really need to learn the lingo that gets discussed regarding the stock market!!!

Hi James, All,

 

Spoke to you over at ASF and got here from your link.

 

Nice Forum. I trade emini's (es & er2) using pivots and TICK. Not many at ASF trade the US indicies so it will be nice to converse with you all.

 

I live on the mid west coast of Aus, but soon to be Gloucestershire UK.

 

Nice touch with the videos James, enjoying going through them.

 

Cheers

Hello WayneL,

 

ASF is a great forum as well. Most of the trading forums that exists in my opinion are very weak. The topics and discussions covered are so pointless. I found ASF to be fairly interesting.

 

Thanks for joining us as well. Our forum is still relatively new but we have some great traders on the forum. I am always enlightened by the comments they make.

 

I look forward to your participation here.. especially since you trade the eminis with TICKS and PIVOTS! (my favorites :) )

 

Glad you liked the video... you are more than welcome to post them also.

 

Regards,

 

James

Found this site by accident but am thrilled i did so. I've watched about half the videos this evening and found them to be very useful, it's good to see what a pro trader thinks at the time of execution. Myself, I am newbie at trading, about 4 weeks so i will prolly be reading most threads instead of creating them but i hope to contribute and give thanks when i can.

 

cheers,

Jay. :D

    • Date: 19th July 2024.   Global Stocks Tumble as Risk Appetite Plummets!   US ECONOMY The NASDAQ declines for a third straight day and fell to its lowest level for July. Netflix Quarterly Earnings Report unable to support US indices. The Dow Jones loses momentum after 6 straight bullish days. The US Dollar Index attempts to regain losses from earlier in the week and trades 0.65% higher than yesterdays The British Pound comes under pressure from the decline in Retail Sales. However, the New Zealand Dollar continues to be the worst performing currency. GBPUSD   The British Pound against the US Dollar is losing momentum for two reasons. The first is that the exchange rate is largely being driven by the Dollar which has risen in value across the board. The US Dollar Index is attempting to regain loses from earlier in the week and trades 0.65% higher than yesterdays open. This is partially due to the lower price but also the lower investor sentiment as stocks falls over the past 3 trading days.     The second reason is the poor economic data from the UK which is likely to pressure the Bank of England to adjust interest rates at the next meeting. According to economists a 25-basis point cut at the next meeting is not yet certain. However, a cut will take place either on the 1st of August or September 19th unless something drastic changes. The poor data includes the number of new unemployed individuals which has considerably risen over the past 2 months. This morning, the UK government also confirmed Retail Sales has fallen 1.2% which is double the decline previously expected.   For the US, weekly employment data was released yesterday: the number of Unemployment claims rose by 243,000, exceeding both the forecast of 229,000 and the previous figure of 223,000. Additionally, the total number of citizens receiving government assistance increased from 1.847 million to 1.867 million, raising the likelihood of interest rate adjustments in September. According to most analysts, the rate cut for September is fully priced in at around 103.20 for as long as other central banks also adjust.   The US Federal Reserve’s Beige Book, published this week, indicates that economic activity is growing at a moderate pace, but businesses expect a slowdown over the next six months due to the US election campaign and consumers struggling with prices. However, the lower risk appetite is triggering higher demand for the Dollar over the past 48 hours. It’s vital investors continue to monitor the US Dollar Index while analysing the GBPUSD.   The price of the exchange is now trading below the 75-Period EMA and below the 50.00 on the RSI. This indicates low sentiment towards the Pound and bearish control for the time being. Fibonacci retracement levels indicate a sell signal will arise at the 1.29290 price whereas the breakout level indicates 1.29261. however, if the price rises above 1.29400 or the trendline, short-term sell signals become unlikely.   USA100   The price of the NASDAQ has now fallen for 3 consecutive days but did see less downward momentum compared to Wednesday’s collapse. The index has now fully corrected the gains for the first 2 weeks of the month and is trading close to the previous support level. However, as previously mentioned, due to the higher economic risk, investors will most likely need strong earnings data to be tempted to purchase the discount unless the price becomes even more favourable.     The price of Bond Yields has risen during this morning’s Asian session and the VIX is also trading slightly higher. The VIX this week has already added almost 10% which indicates a significant decline in risk appetite. In addition to this, the poor data from the rest of the world’s leading economies can also damage sentiment towards stocks. Currently the biggest indication for short term upward price movement is the lower price and potential upcoming earnings data.   Netflix has released their earnings report overnight. The company’s earnings read 2.40% higher than expectations at $4.88 and revenue was 3 million higher than expectations. However, the stock is yet to see any major volatility or support. Currently the stock trades 0.18% lower.     Always trade with strict risk management.
