FTSE 4 Hourly MA Resistance – Follow Up.

FTSE 4 Hourly MA Resistance – Follow Up.

Updating previous FTSE analysis posted HERE on 5th September,  the set-up I’ve been waiting for could be near completion.

I’m day trading FTSE as I type this (Futures), but quite happy to consider holding onto any shorts on a confirmed rejection of price by this 4 hourly 200MA:


Any signs of support from here and I’ll scrap the idea. SPX and DJI (DOW/INDU) are also showing identical set-ups and I may switch trades to one of these 2 Indices as spreads are lower during the UK evening session.

NOTE: Bernanke / Obama speaking tonight could be a market mover

    Bernanke speech resulted in a nice fast move to the downside.

    Therefore, closed FTSE short at intraday support at 5295 (entry was 5335) and will revisit this trade during the cash session tomorrow.

    Also trailing a DOW short from 11,410, half position closed at 11,324 (thought it would act as support when it printed), remaining half to run with stoploss in the 11,430 region.
