Wait for December and Ben Bernanke - if the politicians don't take action then Ben will - he will not allow them to mess up "his work" - he will most do whatever he can to avoid another recession and he strongly believes that what ever stimuli he has put forward so far is good for the economy so he will not hesitate. The market also believes that what he does is good so I will not stand in the way if we trade higher.

    As an economist however I wish that they would let just let all companies/countries that can't stand on their on feet go bankrupt so we can get a fresh start - but that's my personal view and nothing that we can trade on right now.
    I agree bankruptcy would be the way to go for a few nations. The news is fun to watch, and can cause small moves. But the real picture, and better to watch is the larger time frames. Daily, Weekly.

    EDIT: Big Ben is ready to go in Jan. The ECB is working on the EURO land banks. Draghi has a back stop in place to buy bonds. When I go short its just a fade.

It becomes possible now (on a short term basis) to sell the 38%-61.8% fibs shown (red ellipse) <2930-2953> with stops above top of (v) <3020>, & take profit at <2835-2805> (green ellipse). It’s is not recommended to hold shorts beyond this point. A bounce is expected at the neckline. There is a possibility though to see spikes till 2765-70/80 (Top of i). Which should be used to place limit buys at, - stops below A.
    Do you mind explaining a little on the 3 colors rectangles you have on the chart following the prices, and what do WSI means?

    Thanks!

    Sorry if I cannot answer you immediately. I'm busy moving the market in the opposite direction...

    So now that everything went according to plan, what's next? The charts look quite tricky to me, in a way that nothing really would surprise me form this point. The 4H chart looks like a cup and handle (also on cable), but a trip to 1.2830 looks just as possible as one to 1.3050, we just need to find out which one will come first? At some point it would be good to finally close the gap in USD/CHF at 0.9183 but there's no guarantee it won't stay open for another 6 months...

    Today got hit on gold and spx...... but back on gold once again off 1706.8...

    [8:25:26 PM] tahirkhan989: [8:17 PM] tahirkhan989:
    i think it wont break lower to 1702 in any case
    [8:17:40 PM] tahirkhan989: but 1722 now would be a good spot
    [8:17:54 PM] tahirkhan989: watch euro it pops higher to 2900 things can change in a jiffy
    [8:18:06 PM] tahirkhan989: but at the moment dont put too much on stake
    [8:18:17 PM] tahirkhan989: i have got a nasty bite on spx and gold already for the day
    [8:18:31 PM] tahirkhan989: EJ grabber now is to hold for a while for me

    <<< USD rejects all reverse
    even so these could be the lows for next few days,,,,,,,

    GL..
    So far so good.. GOld made it to 1722.. Euro made it to 2950ish and cashing EJ for 100+ pips with one still intact..
    106.54-59 comes in as a possible neck on the inv HNS on EJ and selling here.. EUro shows a 2973-76 possibly to 2979 and I think may end up holding esp if EJ holds 106.60...
    YEN 82.22 resis so let's get the ball rolling...

    GL..
    Patience is virtue. The sooner we learn this all, sooner we can start walking to the bank. Good Luck to all of us—
    The trick is to wait the price meet ur limits, instead of one jumping in.. however scalps is a totally different scenario and is not everyone's cup of tea
    Disclaimer: I'm not at all suggesting trades when by either posting the graphs, or my entries. You can view it, but in the end you have to use your own logic and approach, as there is no certainty about this uncertain market...

    Break of the bottom (i) on WSI momentum was the principal confirmation to go short. What it actually signals is that the momentum value of one lower degree cycle has been successfully contested & broken by a 5 wave impulse.

    This opens the way to a test of the top of the lower degree wave top level at (i) on price. That’s way I am trading the move down to such a level. Keep in mind this is a counter trend trade. By counter trend it is meant that this trade is supported by 2 cycle levels only. If it were more than 2 cycles, it would be a trending trade with much more potential.

    In the current case, If you couple the principal confirmation spoken of above, with the confirmation that the w2-4 line of the last advance wave is broken, then you can envision the 2-cycle confirmations spoken of. To abort the trade, one of these 2 cycles would have to revert. This means that I would need to see a break > the top momentum value of the last advance wave broken above (>1.18 in this case), if I am to call the anticipated 3-move down trend, merely a smaller internal cyclic correction or flat.

    Break > 1.18 in this case erodes one cycle, and calls the larger higher degree 3-wave corrective bear trend, (estimated to test 2835-2805)- that I am currently trading over. The position should then be aborted at market or slight retraction down towards entry levels.

    Hope, the explanation helps, & I have not made it sound too confusing or complex.
    Sincere Regards

    Hello Paul,
    I have attached some explanatory slides regarding the colored rectanges. After you veiw them, I would like to add that using i-day volatility measures for today, I think or "believe" that if the current position is successful, it should reach Tps in about 2 days time. Moreover, if volatility spikes in the reverse direction of the trade (more than 3 levels), then this is considered an omnious sign to abort the trade. - provided I am riding in profit of course.

    WSI stands for wave segregation index. The indicator should be used to segregate between the different market cycles, by telling which cycle is moving in a 5 wave impulse at a specific time.

    The concept is to multiply any oscillator by the ADx or DI of the ADx. By doing so this oscillator gets accelerated to show its Elliot structure (if the market or cycle is advancing). If it’s not advancing it will stay muted within it’s internal cyclic level bands (because it is simply not accelerating).

    Because momentum leads price, Trade wise, the aim is to build an ea that engages the market once specific index #s or levels are breached on the WSI, signaling acceleration, coupled with such acceleration breaching a wave 2-4 line breach on momentum. The wave 2-4 line would also be imputed by specific momentum numeral values on the ea. On such a condition maturing, the trader is confirmed that a specific local support / resistance price “cycle” level will be tested, to take profits at (this too be manually imputed on the ea).

    For longer term cycle trading, the breach of the specific local support / resistance price level, (3 ea parameters here) needs to concur, so that entries can be auto made.

    Versions of the ea are still to be coded at codebase. And I intend to pass round for beta-testing if anyone would be interested.

    For more theoertical reading on segregation analysis itself, please go to the blog - though I am sorry to say, that blog material gets removed on & off for updating and corrections, & I am some what back ward on this.

    Alex,

    Companies bank's ect that dont get it wright should be allowed to fail.

    The bailout of gm is and excellent example of the unwarrented public rescue of dionsoar lemon.

    Soverign failures need to be addressed differntly other wise you will have repeated socalist goverments borrowing to the max from foriegn investors then going bankrupt on the fist hint of a markett coerrection as they know there will not be a meidum or long term downside to doing thus.
