Stalking GBPJPY and AUDUSD.

The chart with annotations below shows some interesting possibilities. Price may or may not reach the striking zone in the charts below. They don’t mind if the prey escapes and moves on for a while; they’ll catch um another time!!  Good snipers wait in the ‘bush’, stalking their prey for a high probability ‘kill’ conditions. Snipers know that there is a chance that they can miss, that’s why they wait on optimal conditions. How itRead More

Caught a big fish

The infographic below shows a big fish on the hook. Well, big fish are probably harder to reel in but they’ll supply more protein – innit?!! They’ll compensate for most of the losses on small fish thrown back or lost. Yes, my line may be snapped – no problem – cuz I know there are other big fish in the sea.

EURUSD Analysis

This is my latest analysis on EURUSD. This is based on combining a number of indicators to find a probability estimate of where the trend may go. In this analysis a trend is identified. No prediction is made. A strategy for entry and following of the trend is worked out.  Probability estimates based on standard indicators: 1. EMA50 2. Aroon 19 (a customised version). 3. BuySellSignal 4. ATR stop-loss by Vervoort. 5. RSI. 6. FibonacciRead More

Watching GBPAUD

A very big part of trading is stalking the markets. Good traders are always tracking the charts days and weeks in advance to see how patterns are developing, waiting for the right moment to strike their ‘prey’. Yes – for sure good opportunities don’t come along very often. But that’s part of the ‘job’. A good trader is spending much time in the background preparing; keeping his powder dry as they say. GBPAUD has someRead More

Possible snipe on Expedia

The annotated chart (clickable to enlarge) below gives the analysis. This is note meant as a tip. The SYP applies if you lose your money. Update: Successful snipe – results are on the last image below.         

Stalking Micron Technology

The following chart shows an interesting setup approaching tomorrow (25th June 2015) for Micron’s earnings release (ER). This is not a complete analysis and anybody making a decision to bet on this, going long or short with real money. does so entirely at their own risk. Ignore most of the wavy lines. The important things are price movements and contrasting the current situation with the historical. Whilst a majority of analysts have high bullish expectationsRead More

COSTCO SNIPE HAPPENING

Last night one of our small and developing team spotted COSTCO as a possible snipe. Earnings releases were on the NASDAQ (unfortunately not showing on Tradingview). Having assessed it we entered long. The trade is still running and it’s looking good. My stop-loss has been moved to zero-loss position – so I can’t lose!! Learning point: The Earnings Release strategy has a fair chance of success if applied well. Of course, I have to sayRead More

TIFFANY and LANNETT in the scope

Tiffany is at an interesting position. The gurus hold mixed views on whether Tiffany will rise or fall. Of course, listening too much to gurus is not part of this business. It’s about acceptable loss and risk management. [Updated: see out come on Tiffany below, after this was posted.] Price on Tiffany has been moving up and down but overall sideways in the last few days. It’s definitely down today before the earnings release ofRead More

Stalking COSTAR – again

The chart below shows a very observable pattern to COSTAR. It is doubtless a channel. The first thing that will come to mind is that, “It’s purely by chance.. there’s no reason why this is happening”. We may not be able to see the reason, but the pattern is undeniable. Amazingly this does not only happen with COSTAR or any one group of equities. From experience it happens in loads of equities, forex and otherRead More
