    THE T.A. WAY

    Patterns can work for us in at least two ways. They can work as entry points or confirmation of a trend. Below are a descending triangle and a symmetrical triangle. The descending triangle tells us that the market is to go down. The symmetrical triangle is confirmation of a trend and can be found in both uptrends and down trends.

  3. The link I posted below does not appear to work. Try this link for the videos. http://forexdiamonds.com/performance.htm
  4. I have been watching some videos of live trades which are run by this guy Felix. He trades the news and has his computer right on the button. This guy charts the movement in seconds, not minutes, but seconds. On Wednesday, when trading the PPI in the GBP/USD some of the subscribers made up to 120 pips profit. Not sure how much they are putting on, but Felix's off sider exclaimed he just made a fortune when the market moved. The length of their trades are about 30 seconds. Anyway, the this link should give you access to the videos of the trades and explanations about what they are expecting in the trades. http://forexdiamonds.com:80/performance.htm

    Dow Jones

    QUOTE On Thursday the market should continue to benefit from the traditional tendency of stocks to post gains ahead of the holidays, a so-called "Santa Claus" rally. In addition, sentiment should benefit from hopes that the vigorous mergers activity seen in 2006 will continue into 2007, according to Charles Campbell, senior sales trader at Miller Tabak. "With only eleven days remaining in 2006, M&A continues to demonstrate vibrancy across sectors and across borders," he said. "Many of the dynamics that contributed to this impressive M&A environment in 2006 appear in place for the new year," Campbell said, adding that "investors appear increasingly confident of this dynamic as well." Several deals on Wednesday fueled this confidence.--- Marketwatch

    In reply to: filament on Friday 22/12/06 12:41am Filament, You raise a valid point. Those climbs were high. I had a look at the monthly charts to see what the range of the Sept.98- May 99 climb was before its correction. It went from a low of 7400 to a high of 11130. This is a 50% hike from the low to the high; a 3730 move up. The correction came back to 9765 according to the chart below. This is 1365pts in the month of May 99. Percentage wise that was a phenomenal bull run. Personally find it very difficult to see the current run to match that percentage wise. Currently the market has gone from a low of 10683 to 12498 which is 1815pts and 17%. It maybe that the bull run could extend to a 3730pt move, which is what you are suggesting with 30% upside. djiaa_us_price_monthly.11aug98_to_01jul99

    Dow Jones

    Data from the 8.30 news doesn't appear to have affected the markets much at this point. Just knocked the edge of the futures that's all and brought it back to yesterday's close.

    Dow Jones

    Crow, I just looked at the rate of ascent that the DOW climbed before the corrections mentioned below. You will see that May correction was climbed at 53% angle. The earlier two identified were at 70% and 62%. The current bull run is running up at 60%, and it has been more sustained than the previous bull runs, as you mentioned. Can't go on forever.

    In reply to: crowman28 on Thursday 21/12/06 11:36pm Well, I suppose that is why early birds has been keen on a Christmas Crash to make some Cash. That is a good point, Crow. Looking at the weekly charts, the current bull run is looking like it is about exhaust.

Even then living here in Oz you are going to be behind the 8 ball, I would imagine. The banks have an advantage in the currency game when it comes to news. Still, from what many people tell me, if you have the right stops in place and can read the market, some quick money to be made. Those sites you have found have some good information on them for beginners. As far as forex goes I would class myself as a beginner. So I will read up on them. Thanks for that, AJ.

    FTSE 100

    In reply to: sugarman on Thursday 21/12/06 10:43pm Sugarman, the market is currently down on last nights close. So if the market closes around these current levels of 6180, this will represent four down days. If the news out of the states at 8:30 New York time is positive then we will finish in the green. I will want to be long. If it is negative, I with you and will go short.
  12. In reply to: crowman28 on Thursday 21/12/06 10:24pm Crow, I war reading on one site that the spreads were too much. Evidently, this is when the news comes out and when everybody is trying to get on. Apparently a 3pt spread can become a 30pt spread very quickly.

    FTSE 100

    In reply to: sugarman on Thursday 21/12/06 10:23pm Sugarman, you make money and I make money, even when we take a different view. Anyhow I pointed out I went long and closed my trade and could have gone short but had other things to do. Here is a possible double bottom, in which I will go long if this holds up.

    Dow Jones

    In reply to: crowman28 on Thursday 21/12/06 10:26pm I was just having a look at the rally before Christmas last year and noticed that it was 700pts up, whereas this year it has only been 400pts. Percentage wise this is about half the size because of the ratio differences. Not a bad idea about picking up interest over the holiday period.
