GUPPY PERSPECTIVE ON EURUSD

The Guppy system of analysis is one of the most logical and transparent that I’ve come across. The perspective on EURUSD below, gives a picture of a trend breakout to the downside. Spikes in or through the slow EMAs (in red) have been rejected. See two snapshots below. The screenshot below speculates on what may happen. The SYP applies.What happened next a few hours later:

GUPPY PERSPECTIVE ON COSTCO

The Guppy system of analysis is one of the most logical and transparent that I’ve come across. The perspective on COSTCO below, gives a picture of a trend breakout to the downside, with a recent spike on the daily chart. The screenshot below speculates on what may happen.

Finding entry stop-loss points using Guppy.

The Guppy system uses a concept called the Count Back Line (CBL), in order to find a reasonable stop-loss when deciding to enter a trade. A word of caution: the CBL only assists in certain ways below. Selecting a trade under the Guppy system involves SIX tests of which CBL is just one part. Those tests will be outlined In another post. Simply this is about counting back three candles from the apparent break inRead More

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

Trading with Guppy

When you say ‘Guppy’, most people think of the fish. So, I’ve put up an image of the fish – but this has more to do with ‘fishing’ than with fish. Very strange indeed. I have to admit I saw his system many months ago and at that time when I saw ‘Guppy trading’, I simply thought it was some nonsense about some fish and ignored it. Oh well – that’s bad. I should haveRead More

The GAP strategy – £1800/hr!

The gap strategy is about profiting from panic in the markets. It takes some careful study. It can work on any instrument representing major indices (eg GER30, US30) At the outset I should say that this is one strategy that should be practised carefully on demo accounts repeatedly to see what happens. For sure you will lose many times – and keep in mind that losing is about 60% of this business – that’s theRead More

Stalking EURUSD and AUDNZD

The following two charts show some interesting areas of resistance. I’ve already shorted these pairs. This does not mean that anyone should do similar. Optimal entry positions are very time specific – ever swung at and missed a ball when playing tennis, or shuttlecock at badminton? It’s that sort of thing. EURUSD has no one correct trendline. Having broken from the trendline shown (which I think is reasonable) and shot above, price has come intoRead More

Finding your bottom

This is not about your anatomy! Finding the bottom of an instrument (in the market) is not as easy as most might expect. The bottom is not a clearly defined point either. It’s often a band or range of price – as price varies around the so-called bottom. There may be no one bottom. A bottom today is not the same as one two months from now. So, in effect one is looking for aRead More

Stalking NZDUSD

This weekly chart below shows how I’m stalking the NZDUSD pair. I’ve set up alerts on Tradingview to tell me if/when price falls below 20 on the RSI. If that happens I’ll then make an assessment on whether I enter a trade. A lot of people out there have already gone long on this pair. A lot of people often get it wrong. I could see why they might go long – and they couldRead More

Stalking the S&P 500

The most important thing about this instrument below is the blue trendline. Leave off all the rest, if you wish. Looking closer at the more recent index value (in the red circle), it’s easy to see that it’s approaching the trendline again. Of course it may never hit the trendline – and the other possibility is that it could bust through it and head very south! However, the evidence on the chart is that evenRead More
