Unfortunately yet another empty Week from a Swing Trading perspective!
I've no idea whether it's my (incorrect) interpretation of what I'm seeing in the Markets, or whether all Markets are setting up for huge volatility, but this last couple of Months has not offered anything that fit my usual swing strategies.
Considering that for the last couple of Years I've averaged
It's been a very tricky Week to analyse new Swing trading set-ups, well, it didn't start that way but it certainly ended that way.
Following the GBP:CHF analysis detailed hereI was quite surprised to see a powerful break out the very next morning and after some indecision I decided to enter a long position on an intraday pull back. Initially the trade appeared to be
I've been told off through a couple of recent comments about the lack of updates to the site! It's certainly true that I've missed out on a couple of great trading set-ups that I've not had chance to post nor enter simply due to lack of time to spend at the screen and updating the site.

Not a great deal to add this Week as I'm still holding the same positions as last Week and no new positions taken.
I struggled again from a day trading perspective, rather unnecessarily really because all I had to do was keep hold of the first day trade of the Week (DOW long from 12,070) and I'd have had a great Week!
Hope your Week is going better than mine! Though my Swing Trades are all looking good and even the DOW swing short is still showing good profits despite this Week's 500 point rise, the 2 day trades I entered today left a lot to be desired!
So I've had a scan through my watchlist and the following charts define those I consider most likely
