The exit polls will give a fair idea whether is will be worth staying up late to watch the constituency results come in one after the other and watch the swing of 'yes/no' which if is a close run thing will also swing the market but be prepared for high spreads and high min stop loss levels.

US Indices just backing off after a very strong day yesterday, Bonds down, Oil and Gold flat, Crypto down.

Today UK GDP at 9:30am (final so should be no surprises). US final GDP at 1:30pm.

UK Brexit vote in parliament at 2:30pm could affect the GBP after the recent turmoil when GBP shot up on a good election result then came straight back down when Johnson announced could well see a no deal Brexit. 

US income and sentiment data at 3pm.

There are a few online sites touting for webinar sign up for the US nfp normally held on the first Friday of the month but don't bother as it's on the 10th of Jan this time round instead. 

The upcoming Friday though sees not only the ISM US manu PMI at 3pm but also the minutes of the last FOMC mtg are released at 7pm and can also move markets.

Dow is down 280 pts for the day after US air strike on Iran. Is this a trend or just reacting to recent events. 

The early reports were breaking around 1am and coincide with the first large H1 red candle on the Dow which precipitated the retrace of the entire Thursday leg up. But no doubt there will be plenty who claim the move was caused their TA or 'predictions' though 🤔.

Very nice, I would love to be able to construct something like that myself instead of paying for someone else to do it.  Guess it's time to learn about APIs and such.

I can send you the template if you want, you then just need to install the Add-in in order to use the formulas in the sheet for streaming prices. The Add-in is $10 a month: https://www.excelpricefeed.com

Here's the current sheet:

Ger factory orders at 7am. EU business climate data at 10am. US ADP nfp today at 1:15pm may hint at Friday's main NFP release.

IG Clients still short equities

Cripes, they should come and read this forum ... although with that being said, I did get burned holding open positions when the Iran thing happened.  Seems like a bit of an unpleasant time to be trading with sudden bursts up and down.

I don't like to hijack this thread, but IG clients have been mainly short for the past 6 months, and more than 2/3rds short since the S&P500 crossed 3000 back in October.

As the market goes down clients go long and as the market goes up clients go short:

and just to reinforce the point that clients are usually on the wrong side here is the latest FXCM SSI showing retail moving into shorts as price starts climbing.

What concerns me as I look back on the charts is that I didn't buy and hold at that point.  Surely that's better than nipping in and out, day trading on pivots?

Yep, me too. I am one of those clients that went short as the market went up...looking back going long (and holding) at any point in the past 6 months would have been profitable. Trying to pick turning points is almost impossible, the trend is your friend...easier said than done though as you start to think "it can't possibly go any higher, must drop soon..." :D

not if done right, think of the lateral zig zag price takes to get from A to B, more miles = more points than as the crow flies, more work too though obviously.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead. USDOLLAR (DXY) WEEKLY PRICE CHART – APRIL 28, 2022 {{THE_FUNDAMENTALS_OF_BREAKOUT_TRADING}} What is your view on the US Dollar – bullish or bearish?   Apr 28, 2022 | DailyFX Nick Cawley, Strategist
