S&P 500 Emini Futures

 

Our projections written Thursday night for the S&P action on Friday called for support at 1317/1318 and resistance at 1333/1334. Here's how it played out -

Also worth noting, on the hourly chart above you can see that the market closed Friday with a Bearish Engulfing Pattern in proper context. In simple terms, this calls for lower prices ahead.

Emini Breakout Kings

 

Breakout trading is one of the most basic trading strategies. The term Breakout tends to make us think of an up move but a down move or a Breakdown, also falls under the definition of Breakout Trading Strategies.

 

 

 

The most basic definition of a Breakout is that after a period of consolidation price moves either above or below a well defined support or resistance level. Traditional TA (technical analysis) says that the break must be accompanied by high volume for validation. On the chart above we showed the market moving 20 points on very light volume in a thin market on big news. So while the Breakout Trade is simple in concept, there are some complexities that should be understood.

 

 

#1) Price may expend a great amount of energy to finally break through Support or Resistance.

 

 

#2) After expending great energy, price will often retrace its steps triggering the stops of those who entered the trade based simply on the breakout without any follow through confirmation.

 

 

#3) Those stops being triggered can then propel price higher or lower depending on the direction of the breakout. This should not be confused with the "They ran the stops" conspiracy. What I am explaining does not involve a "they", it is an explanation of how markets work.

 

 

Breakouts can be traded on a 1 minute chart or a monthly chart. The concept is the same, the only difference is the risk required and the potential profit to be gained. When watching a daily chart, price might spend days or even weeks attempting to break out of a range. Once it breaks, if you place your trade without any additional confirmation you become what we call a One Eyed Jack.

The difference between a Breakout and a Fakeout is - Confirmation

 

Top 2 Breakout Strategies

 

 

  1. Confirmed breakout
  2. Failed breakout

 

Now here's the top-secret breakout strategy you won't find anywhere else.

 

 

 

ALL BREAK OUTS ARE TRADABLE OPPORTUNITIES

The key to a successful breakout strategy is learning YOU CAN PROFIT no matter what happens. First, accept the fact that 50% OF ALL BREAK OUTS FAIL. Revel in it. This "secret" removes all bias and gives you a clear head.

 

 

 

The knowledge simply makes you informed, embracing it makes you a King.

 

 

Forget about the outcome of the break, simply trade whatever confirms.

Stock Market Bargain Shopping

 

With the possibility of a longer term bounce into the Presidential election, it might be worth taking a look at some equities that have been knocked down, but not out. We are not attempting to call a bottom, this is more like catching a Phoenix as it rises from the ashes. Our focus is 95% on the indices here at CFRN but after all, those indexes are made up of indvidual stocks right?

 

As always, due your own due diligence and consult with a licensed investment professional.

While travelling by plane, Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali) was once told by a stewardess to put on his seatbelt. He retorted, “Superman don’t need no seatbelt!” to which the stewardess said, “and Superman don’t need no airplane! Put on your seatbelt please.”

 

Traders often fall prey to Superman Syndrome after a string of successful trades. The rush of endorphins begins to cloud our thinking and we start to believe we really can fly. When you buy a child’s Superman suit at a toy store, it comes with a manufacturer’s note: This product is sold as a toy only. It does not enable the wearer to fly.

 

After a good day, week, or month in the markets, we as Traders might be well served to put a post-it-note on our shaving mirror that says "You can't fly". It might not hurt to stick one on the platform monitor as well. Your success was not the result of a misplaced sense of self-worth, your downfall however, could very well be. Reading this will help bring you back to earth - Deuteronomy 13:1-5 .

 

Now let's get into today's discussion with Robin and learn how you can spot Superman Syndrome in its early stages and prevent it from becoming your own personal Kryptonite. Just click here - Overcoming Superman Syndrome w/ Robin Dayne The Traders Coach

    • #GBPUSD #analysis #forex #forexnews #socialtrading The #GBPUSD pair remained under some selling pressure amid a flurry of #Brexit headlines, albeit managed to recover around 60-65 pips from daily lows touched in the last hour.   The pair failed to capitalize on the previous session's strong upsurge to the highest level since May 21 and met with some aggressive supply on Wednesday amid fading optimism over a possible #Brexit agreement before the fast-approaching October 31 deadline. Against the backdrop of the #DUP concerns on the UK PM Boris Johnson’s Brexit concessions, a UK official said that the government was downbeat on chances of a Brexit deal, exerted some heavy #pressure on the #Pound.   The #intraday selling pressure aggravated further, dragging the pair closer to mid-1.2600s, in reaction to reports that suggested technical Brexit negotiations have reached an impasse. The report further added that the EU sees Brexit deal as impossible unless the UK moves.   With the latest #Brexit developments turning out to be an exclusive driver of the intraday volatility, the pair seemed rather unaffected by a subdued US Dollar price action, which remained on the defensive amid the ongoing slide in the US Treasury bond yields.   If the GBP/USD pair continues to show some resilience below the 1.2700 round-figure mark or the current pullback marks the end of the recent strong #bullish momentum that started last week and the resumption of the recent bearish trend. #forex #followme #socialtrading

    • Date : 14th October 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 14th October 2019.No-deal Brexit risks are looking more real than ever, with reports suggesting that talks will officially break down this week ahead of the upcoming EU summit on 17 and 18 October. Elsewhere, further US data and Fedspeak could provide more clues about the possibility of a Fed rate cut. Tuesday – 15 October 2019 Consumer Price Index (CNY, GMT 01:30) – September’s Chinese CPI is seen unchanged at 0.7% while the PPI figure is expected to decline further to -1.2%. The overall reading for CPI is estimated to post a gain up to 2.9% y/y. ILO & Average Earnings Index 3m/y (GBP, GMT 08:30) – UK Earnings with the bonus-excluded figure are expected to slip to 3.7% y/y in the three months to August, down from 3.8%y/y. UK ILO unemployment is expected steady at 3.8%, which was the lowest rate seen since December 1974. ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for October is projected at -27 from the -22.5 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The overall Eurozone reading though expected to declne further to -33.0 slightly from -22.4. A lower than expected outcome, ties in with the stagnation in market sentiment at the start of the month. Consumer Price Index (NZD, GMT 21:45) – One of the most important figures for FX markets, the y/y CPI for Q3 is expected to come out at 1.4%, compared to 1.7% in the previous quarter. Wednesday – 16 October 2019 Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The UK CPI is expected to rebound to a 1.8% y/y rate in September after dipping to 1.7% in August from 2.1% in July. Weakness in sterling from year-go levels should impact some offset to disinflationary forces. Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI is expected to be confirmed at just 0.9% y/y in the final release for September, although the deceleration in the headline rate over the month was largely due to base effects from energy prices, with core inflation actually moving up to 1.0% y/y from 0.9% y/y in August. Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The Canadian CPI index is expected to have increased to 2%y/y compared to 1.9%y/y in August. The core CPI measures remained near 2.0%. Retail Sales (USD, GMT 12:30) – Retail Sales are an important determinant of consumer spending thus making it a leading indicator for overall economic growth. Consensus expectations suggest that we should have increased by 0.2% in September, for both the retail sales headline and the ex-auto figure, following a 0.4% August headline rise with a flat ex-auto figure. Fedspeak: Fed Brainard (USD, GMT 19:00) Thursday – 17 October 2019 European Council Summit on Brexit Employment Data (AUD, GMT 01:30) – While the Unemployment Rate is projected to have flipped at 5.3% in September, Employment change is expected to have eased, increasing by 10K compared to 34.7K last month. Retail Sales ex Fuel (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Retail Sales in the UK are anticipated to increase in September, reaching 3.0% on a y/y basis, and 0.5% on a m/m basis, from the 2.7% and -0.2% respectively Housing Data and Building Permits (USD, GMT 12:30) – Housing starts should drop back to a 1.282 mln pace in September, after a sharp rise to a 1.364 mln clip in August with the help of lower mortgage rates. Permits similarly are expected to slow to 1.370 mln in September, after popping to 1.425 mln in September. Permits have shown a solid growth path into Q3 despite a July starts set-back. Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Survey (USD, GMT 12:30) – The Philly Fed index is seen falling to 7.0 from 12.0 in September, versus a 1-year high of 21.8 in July and a 33-month low of -4.1 in February. The late-September producer sentiment surveys deteriorated significantly after firmness in the early-September reports, and the early-October data will be closely scrutinized to see if this pull-back continued. The “soft data” surveys are at risk of a possible impact from the UAW-GM strike, alongside the ongoing headwind from troubles abroad. Fedspeak: Fed Bowman and Fed Williams (USD, GMT 18:00 and 20:20) Friday – 18 October 2019 European Council Summit on Brexit China Gross Domestic Product (CNY, GMT 02:00)- Chinese GDP is projected to see additional moderation to a 6.1% y/y pace in Q3, from 6.2% in Q2. Industrial Production and Retail Sales (CNY, GMT 02:00) – The September industrial production is forecast at 4.5% y/y from 4.4% previously, while September retail sales likely improved to 7.7% y/y from 7.5%. Fedspeak: Fed Kaplan and Fed Clarida (USD, GMT 15:00 and 15:30) Always trade with strict risk management. Your capital is the single most important aspect of your trading business.

    • This should really be very easy, but I can't find an article or video to walk me through it. I picked 20 ticker symbols where the stocks are in a tight trading range. I got them all into one list I call "Channel". I'd like to add several indicators that apply to all, such as MACD, volume, 3 moving averages. Then I'd like to scroll through the list, adding trendlines, or horizontal lines to mark the top & bottom of the price channel for each. Then set an alarm for a breakout in each direction that indicates a breakout. Could you point me to an article or video that walks me through how to do this? ...or give me the steps? Thank you, RichardV2, Experienced stock trader back before the Internet was invented.😁
