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

    • Brexit Aftermath: The Market Reaction Of Bitcoin, Gold And Pound Sterling To Headline News In The EURO Zone   After the UK made it public to exit from the EURO bloc, the market cap for Bitcoin and Gold has increased almost by $133 billion and $1 trillion. Is this the Brexit aftermath?   As it is, the end may be near for Brexit. In the recent declaration an accord is reached between the British government and the EU, everyone is on the lookout for the final date Brexit will conclude. And based on this scenario, an analysis is drawn on the aftermath of this separation in the politics of the EURO bloc and the effect on the price of Bitcoin, Gold and pound sterling.   Bitcoin: Since the start of Brexit, Bitcoin’s market cap had spiked higher and recovered about $10 billion worth. Before Brexit, the cryptocurrency of the first choice had been stable in price after crashing to a market cap of about $2.9 billion low around January 2015. However, after the crash, the cryptocurrency had spiked to about 300% within 18 months while the next super halving of the project is expected on the network from 25 to 12.5 fresh Bitcoin’s per 10 minutes.   As of mid-2016, the most liquid GBP market was the London based Coinfloor exchange. The exchange did around 772 Bitcoins’ worth of volume that day, valued back then at around $4.9 million, with data from the technical back end at the Trading view.   The Pound Sterling: The British national currency had crashed by almost 20% on the night of the vote after hitting a momentary high of about $1.5 versus the USD for about 8 months. Since crashing to a low of about $1.2 as at March 2017, the Pound sterling had rallied 6% within a 4-week time frame, after the UK parliament decided to vote and activate the Article 50 while then the Brexit journey began for the UK taking it two years to discuss its planned exit from the EURO bloc.     Gold: The safe-haven asset also spiked higher around the same time frame from mid-March to mid-April 2017 with its price rising about 7% versus the USD. Nevertheless, this scenario didn’t play out on Bitcoin as in March 2017, beginning with its price at $1000, Bitcoin had surged to hit an all-time value of about $1300, as a result of markets expectation for a Bitcoin ETF being endorsed. However, after its nullification was declared on 10th March 2017, the cryptocurrency fell to a low of about $888 which occurred concurrently with the UK’s law passage for its exit from EURO bloc. Ever since then as the UK’s Brexit discussions with the EU raged on, so did the Pound against the US-dollar and Bitcoin gained more to its price.   Bitcoin, Gold, and Pound Sterling Reactions to Brexit During this timeframe transversing Brexit discussion and its process, the Pound lost the majority of its 15% gains recovered, to tumble from a high of $1.43 to hit $1.20 on 3 September. In a similar multi-day timeframe, gold broke out of its basic $1400 resistance level to rally 15% versus the US-dollar. While Bitcoin gained higher, then again, stayed on the level around $8,000—yet the genuine story of those 17 months incorporates the cryptocurrency crashing towards $3,000 (December 2018) preceding the move spiking to a high of almost $14,000 in June this year.   Source: https://learn2.trade     
    • Despite Running To The Highest Close In Six Months, GBPUSD May Fail To Reverse   GBPUSD Price Analysis – October 20 The GBPUSD had closed on Friday above its opening price after recovering from early selling pressure and trending higher for the 4th day consecutively in a row. After failing to reverse from its highs, the FX pair is unstable and due to weekend UK parliament vote on Brexit, with this scenario, the pair is likely to gap while it reopens on Monday morning in Asia (Sunday evening in the US).   Key Levels Resistance Levels: 1.3301, 1.3185, 1.2988   Support Levels: 1.2582, 1.2204, 1.1958   GBPUSD Long term Trend: Bullish On the daily picture, the bulls took charge in the previous session and exited the day above its opening price, however, the pair failed to move past the prior’s day’s trading range and the price likewise failed to reverse below the previous day’s range.   The GBPUSD had rallied upwards to as high as the level at 1.2988 last week, before forming a temporary top there. In the case of a reverse, the fall may be contained by the level at 1.2582 resistance turned support to bring rise resumption.     GBPUSD Short term Trend: Bullish An impermanent top is structured on the level at 1.2988 and intraday bias in GBPUSD stays on the upside. A few consolidations may be seen. Be that as it may, any pullback ought to be contained above the level at 1.2582 support to bring rise resumption.   Meanwhile, on the upside, a break of the level at 1.2988 will stretch out the recovery from the level at 1.1958 to 1.2582 from 1.2204 at 1.3185 next. Without bias analysis, the outlook is bullish and displaying an intact uptrend in the short and long-term.   Source: https://learn2.trade 
    • Date : 21st October 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 21st October 2019.The week ahead will definitely not be a quite one, with high anxiety on Brexit, the last ECB policy meeting before Mario draghi hand over the ECB presidency to Christine Lagarde and few significant US data prior FED on October 30.Monday – 21 October 2019   Producer Price Index (EUR, GMT 06:00) – The German PPI is expected to drop to -0.2% for September. As expected readings would result in a y/y loss of 0.3% for headline PPI, versus a 0.3% pace for August. Tuesday – 22 October 2019   Retail Sales (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canadian sales are expected to have increased by 0.6% m/m in August compared to 0.4% m/m in July, with the ex-autos component down -0.3%. Existing Home Sales (USD, GMT 14:00) – Home sales have regained their status as an important indicator after the financial crisis and can have a strong effect on the markets. The release is expected to record a slight -0.2% pull-back in September to a 5.480 mln pace, after a bounce to 5.490 mln in August. In Q2, we saw an average sales pace of 5.287 mln, and we expect a better 5.463 mln pace in Q3. Thursday – 24 October 2019   Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 08:30-09:00) – September PMIs showed a marked contraction in manufacturing activity and a sharp slowdown in services sector growth. This picture is likely to be seen again in the preliminary readings for October, as German Manufacturing PMI has been forecast at 40 and composite at 49.2, which it is still below neutral. Meanwhile, Services PMI is expected to fall to 51.2. The overall Markit for Eurozone is seen at 49.4, signalling stagnation and highlighting the risk that the weakness in manufacturing sectors is spreading.

Draghi’s last press conference meanwhile will likely focus heavily on calls for fiscal measures to boost the economy in a challenging international environment. Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to fall -1.8% in September, after gains of 0.2% in August, thanks to an expected transportation orders drop.

Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing are expected to slip in October, to 50.1 from 51.1, while Services PMIs are likely to rise to 51.3 from 50.9, indicating a slowdown in the sector that has been hit by global trade tensions. Friday – 25 October 2019   German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – In September, the German IFO business confidence came in slightly higher than expected at 94.6. In October, however, the overall business climate reading is seen slightly lower at 94.4. The more forward looking expectations reading is anticipated at 91.8 from 90.8.

    • Perfect Trend Lines, PTL, is a short-term trend trading indicator. The lines showing the trend in this indicator is not straight lines like normal trend lines. PTL indicator calculation is simple. First take the 7 bar high and low, then the 3 bar high and low. If the close price is above the 7 bar high and 3 bar high, then an uptrend is identified. When the close price is below the 7 bar low and 3 bar low then a downtrend is identified. These bars are considered as strong trend bars. The magenta line is the 7 bar high or low depending on the trend. The cyan line is the 3 bar high or low depending on trend direction. When price is trading between these 2 lines trend strength is weak.   A magenta diamond shape appears when sell signal is generated. Cyan diamond shape appears for a buy signal. The magenta line can be used as stop loss. The cyan line provides a tighter stop loss level. Strong downtrend bars are marked by a magenta dot at the bar high and strong uptrend bars are marked by a cyan dot at the bottom of the bar.   PTL.zip
