A regular guest on this 10:30 am slot, host Victoria Scholar slickly puts charting veteran Lee through his paces. Interestingly, he kicks off with FX cross the Kiwi (New Zealand dollar, for the uninitiated) against the Canadian dollar. While these ‘commodity’ currencies (plus the Australian dollar) feature regularly on specialists’ radars, I’m wondering whether the average IG spread-betting fan is really that interested.
Euro/Sterling comes next where, as well as his standard MACD, RSI and Stochastics, he uses 3 moving averages. He says that when he wants to short the euro, he finds it better to do so against the pound. Sound advice indeed – don’t always stick to the obvious.
The German DAX 30 index appears to have a potential broadening top and is therefore of no value for a ‘’swing trade long’’; it’s also riddled with divergence on the oscillators. A similar story for Japan’s Nikkei 225 index where, when there is divergence on 3 or more oscillators, he anticipates a big moves.
He’s keen – and eloquent – on the outlook for commodities for 2020 because they ‘’trend hard; they tend to run and run’’. He covers palladium and zinc, the former parabolic and the latter which ‘’looks absolutely beautiful’’. Not sure I can see it, really, but then, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
His final chart is one I’m not aware of: the Euro Stoxx Banks short daily ETP. It’s a way of getting exposure the ever-dwindling value of Eurozone bank share prices. I’ll have to go away and do some homework on this.
