Redstoneconnect PLC Is Now Suitable for Buyers

Redstoneconnect PLC stock (LSE:REDS) is currently suitable for buyers. Price has been going on since July 2016 till now, and further gains are possible, at least till the end of this year.


From April to June, price was declining, reaching a possible yearly bottom in June and going above the upper Trendline. In this month, things have gone bullish and the market is poised to continue going further north.

The RSI period 14 also has almost gone above the level 80, showing a strong bullish momentum in the market. There would surely be a pullback along the way, which are supposed to be transient in some cases.

As said in the first paragraph, Redstoneconnect PLC would continue to gain till at least, the end of this year.

Berkeley Group to Record More Losses

Berkeley Group Holdings shares (LSE:BKG) are set to record further losses this year. Price was very volatile in the months of March to May 2016, and then dropped sharply in June. After that, price consolidated in the context of a downtrend.


4 EMAs are used for this strategy and they are EMAs 10, 20, 50 and 200. The color that stands for each EMA is shown at the top left part of the chart. It can be seen that the trend is down and all the EMAs are sloping downwards as there are volatility in the market.

Bulls may make some attempt to push the market up, but as long as it does not go above the EMA 200, price would drop further. This means Berkeley Group would record further losses this year. Price could dip further towards the demand levels at 2400, 2300, and 2200.

This forecast is ended by the quote below:

“Here’s an interesting statement: In terms of price range, we are currently experiencing the tightest volatility contraction since JFK was president. There have been multiple generations of traders who have never seen volatility this tight.” - D. R. Barton, Jr.

Daily analysis of major pairs for August 29, 2016

The USD/JPY consolidated from Monday to Friday, and then broke upwards on Friday. Since price has been consolidating for about two weeks, the breakout on Friday is yet to bring about any dominant bias in the short-term. The bias would turn bullish only after price goes above the supply levels at 103.00 and 103.50.

EUR/USD: This currency trading instrument found it difficult to go above the resistance line at 1.1350. Price fell sharply on Friday, causing a formidable threat to the ongoing bullish bias. A movement below the support line at 1.1100 would result in a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. A movement above the resistance line at 1.1350 would strengthen the bullish outlook.




USD/CHF: This pair went upwards 170 pips last week. There are three factors that contributed to this: The USD was strong in its own right on Friday, the CHF was weak against some majors, including the USD, and the EUR/USD plummeted on Friday. As long as these factors are in effect, the USD/CHF would continue going upwards. Otherwise, price would decline.

GBP/USD: The Cable went upwards by 200 pips to test the distribution territory at 1.3250; prior to the bearish retracement that was seen on Friday. The bias on the Cable is bullish in the short-term and bearish in the long-term, and price ought to continue going northward so that the short-term bullish can be sustained. GBP pairs would experience high volatility in September.

USD/JPY: The USD/JPY consolidated from Monday to Friday, and then broke upwards on Friday. Since price has been consolidating for about two weeks, the breakout on Friday is yet to bring about any dominant bias in the short-term. The bias would turn bullish only after price goes above the supply levels at 103.00 and 103.50.

EUR/JPY:  This cross has been flat for three weeks; plus the breakout that occurred on August 26, 2016, was not significant enough to bring about any news bias in the short-term. The dominant bias on higher timeframes like daily and weekly charts is bearish, and for the month of September 2016, it is expected that price would be trending lower and lower. The outlook on JPY pairs remains bearish. Therefore, any rally that was seen ought to be taken as an opportunity to sell short.

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (August 29 – September 2, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:
                                          
EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
The bias on this pair is precariously bullish. Price came down 120 pips on Friday, in the context of a weak uptrend. A movement below the support line at 1.1100 would result in a clean Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, while a movement above the resistance line at 1.1350 would strengthen the ongoing bullish bias on the pair. This week would determine whether things would turn bearish or things would become more bullish in the market.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bearish
Just as it was prognosticated last week, a short-term weakness of CHF (which was weak versus other majors as well), coupled with a noticeable bullish effort on EURUSD, was able to cause a rally on USDCHF, which rallied 170 pips last week. USD also became strong in its own right, especially on Friday, August 26, 2016. Therefore, USDCHF would continue going up as long as the factors mentioned above continue to favor it, which might cause a Bullish Confirmation Pattern to form in the market; otherwise there would be a serious pullback.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
GBPUSD is bullish in the short-term and bearish in the long-term. Price went north 200 pips to test the distribution territory at 1.3250, before it experienced a pullback on Friday. However, the short-term bias remains bullish, provided that price does not go below the accumulation territories at 1.3000 and 1.2950. GBP pairs would undergo high volatility in September 2016: in contrast to lower volatility witnessed this month.      
 
USDJPY
Dominant bias: Neutral
This currency trading instrument is neutral in the short-term, but bearish in the longer term. The instrument underwent a very tight consolidation between Monday and Thursday, only to break upwards on Friday. The upwards break has not invalidated the neutral bias on the market, unless price goes above the supply levels at 103.00 and 103.50. There is also a possibility of a pullback to the demand levels at 101.00 and 100.50. The outlook on JPY pairs is bearish for the month of September, which means, bears are expected to be the overall winners in the month.    
                                                                                                                               
EURJPY
Dominant bias: Neutral
EURJPY is neutral in the near term and bearish in the long-term. The cross has been moving sideways for the past three weeks, while the trend on higher timeframes remains bearish. The bullish breakout that occurred on Friday could end up being a false breakout, should price fail to keep on moving north. Since the outlook on JPY pairs remains bearish, a pullback into the demand zone at 113.00 is possible, though strong selling pressures would be needed for the demand zone to be breached to the downside.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

“A seed was planted in my mind. It took a few years for it to grow. When it did, I realized that what I really love is trading — the pursuit of actively trying to beat the market. And so I guided my life into that role. It took a while, but finally I succeeded. For the past 15 years, I have been a full-time trader.” - Jim Totaro (Source: Collective2)

Currency Strength Meter (Leaked)

TAPPING PROFITS WITH AN INTRADAY STRATEGY

“As traders, we should never stop learning, because the markets are never going to stop teaching.  Continuing to learn is a vital part of becoming a better trader.” – Track ‘n Trade         

You may have heard that FX trading is all about combining strong currencies with weak currencies. Well, this is the home truth. In fact, this is what currency trading is all about, and the Currency Strength Meter helps us do this as easily as possible, while you are adequately rewarded.

Currency Strength Meter – What You Need to Know
The currency strength meter at LiveCharts gives you a quick visual guide to which currencies are currently strong, and which ones are weak. The meter measures the strength of all Forex cross pairs and applies calculations on them to determine the overall strength for each individual currency.

How Does The Currency Strength Meter Work?
The meter takes readings from every Forex pair over the last 24 hours, and applies calculations to each. It then bundles together each the associated pairs to an individual currency (eg, EURUSD, EURJPY, EURGBP etc) and finds the current strength.

How Can This Help Me?
It is useful as a quick guide to which currencies you might want to trade, and which might be worth staying away from. For instance, if a certain currency is very strong, and another suddenly turns weaker, you may find a trading opportunity. Such deviation between pairs usually indicates momentum. Conversely, if two currencies are weak, strong or average strength, there is often a range or sideways movement happening. You might want to stay away from trading those pairs. (Source: LiveCharts)

Bringing It Together
There are many ways in which currency strength information is displayed (like figures display, bars displays, etc.), but LiveCharts makes uses of rectangular bars.

The strongest currency would display six rectangular bars on top of it.
The weakest currency would display only one rectangular bar on top of it.
The second strongest currency would display five rectangular bars on top of it.
The second weakest currency would display two rectangular bars on top of it.
The uppermost rectangular bar on top of the strongest currency is green, while the only rectangular bar above the weakest currency is red. 

Watch the video here: https://learn.tradimo.com/courses/183       

Looking at the CSM, the best thing to do is to combine the strongest currency with the weakest currency for the best result. Sometimes, we may combine the strongest currency with the second weakest currency (or the second strongest currency to the weakest currency).

In a given day, all currencies with four or three bars on top of them would be avoided.
Also, these are what we do not want to do:
Combination of one strongest currency with another strongest currency,
Combination of the weakest currency with another weakest currency,
Combination of one second strongest currency with another second strongest currency,
And combination of one second weakest currency with another second weakest currency.

Would Koovs Go Up Again?

Koovs shares (LSE:KOOV) were bullish from March till the end of July 2016, allowing a clean Bullish Confirmation Pattern to be formed in the chart as depicted by the indicators mentioned below. However, something is currently happening…


The ADX period 14 is below the level 20, while the DM+ remains above the DM-. This means that the indicator still gives a bullish signal, which is not currently strong. The MACD, default parameters, has its signal lines above the zero line, while its histogram is already below the zero line (even the signal lines are sloping downwards).

What does this mean? It means that while the bullish signal is in place, the MACD and the ADX are giving mixed signals: weak momentum coupled with increased bearish activity. Should the MACD signal lines cross the zero line to the downside, and the ADX DM+ crosses the ADX DM- to the downside, there would be a “sell” signal.

Should anything happen on Koovs contrary to what is explained in the preceding paragraph, the Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the chart would become clearer.

Global Energy Development: BUY

Global Energy Development stock (LSE:GED) has started going upwards, and this has led to a bullish signal in the chart, which would hold out for the next several months. From March till the end of July 2016, price was coming down, but things have changed right now.

Price is above the EMA 21 and the Williams’ % Range period 20 is in the overbought region; which means the best action to take now is to go long. There would be some short-term pauses or pullbacks along the way, but GED should go beyond the supply levels at 30.0, 35.0, and 40.0.

Daily analysis of major pairs for August 22, 2016

The USD/CHF plunged into the support level at 0.9550 last week, closing above the support level. There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the chart, and further downwards plunge could happen this week. However, a possible weakness in CHF, coupled with a possible weakness in the EUR/USD, might aid a significant rally in USD/CHF.

EUR/USD: The EUR/USD went upwards by 200 pips last week, and tested the resistance line at 1.1350. There is currently a shallow bearish retracement in the context of an uptrend, but price is supposed to continue going upwards this week, reaching other resistance lines at 1.1350, 1.1400 and 1.1450. A bearish movement could force price to test the support lines at 1.1250 and 1.1200.   



USD/CHF: This pair plunged into the support level at 0.9550 last week, closing above the support level. There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the chart, and further downwards plunge could happen this week. However, a possible weakness in CHF, coupled with a possible weakness in the EUR/USD, might aid a significant rally in USD/CHF.

GBP/USD: From Tuesday to Thursday, the Cable went north by 300 pips, reaching the distribution territory at 1.1350. Nevertheless, the upward movement is not serious enough to pose any threat to the dominant bias, which is bearish. This is even corroborated by what happened on Friday – a downwards correction by 130 pips. This week, further downwards pressure is possible because the Cable may be weak. For example, the GBP/CAD should plummet before the end of the week (owing to an expected stamina in CAD); and since GBP/USD is sometimes positively correlated with the GBP/CAD, it may experience a vivid bearish movement.

USD/JPY: It is good to check what is happening on other majors so that one can fathom the situations surrounding a trading instrument of interest. The outlook on JPY pairs is bearish in the long-term. The USD/JPY went sideways last week. It went further downwards on Monday and Tuesday and then consolidated till the end of this week. However, there should be a breakout this week, which might respect the dominant bearish trend or cause a near-term rally, especially when USD is strong.

EUR/JPY:  This cross consolidated throughout last week, which was something it also did the week before last week. This has caused the bias to become neutral. The neutral bias would come to an end this week or next, when a breakout occurs, which would most probably favor bears.

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (August 22 - 26, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:
                                          
EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
EURUSD went upwards 200 pips last week, testing the resistance line at 1.1350 before the current shallow retracement. Price may be able to target the resistance lines at 1.1400 and 1.1450 this week, but bulls might encounter some challenges doing this. There is a possibility of a pullback, which might bring another opportunity to go long at a lower price or bring an end to the current bullish outlook on the market.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bearish
USDCHF went in the opposite direction to EURUSD, moving briefly below the support level at 0.9550, and then closing at 0.9600 on Friday. There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, which means it may continue trending downwards, on the condition that EURUSD would continue trending upwards; otherwise a rally would ensue. A show of weakness in EURUSD and CHF (for CHF could experience some weakness against the majors this week) would help to bring about a rally in USDCHF.    

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
GBPUSD went upwards from Tuesday to Friday last week, pulling back by over 130 pips on Friday, and closing above the accumulation territory at 1.3050. The bearish outlook remains in place, unless price goes upwards by at least, another 300 pips from the current location. Without this condition being fulfilled, GBPUSD might experience a further pullback, which might possibly be aided by a bearish movement on GBPCAD (since CAD would rally against other pairs this week). GBPCAD and GBPUSD sometimes get positively correlated. At times, it is helpful to know how conditions surrounding other pairs and crosses affect the instrument we focus on.    
 
USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
This pair declined 170 pips on August 15 and 16, and then moved sideways for the rest of the week, all in the context of a downtrend. The outlook on the pair, plus other JPY pairs, continues to be bearish (though CADJPY could rally when CAD gains stamina). This week, the demand levels at 100.00, 99.50 and 99.00 might be tested. The demand levels at 100.00 and 99.50 were tested last week, but price could not stay below them.   
                                                                                                                               
EURJPY
Dominant bias: Neutral
This cross has been consolidating for the last two weeks; an event which has brought about a neutral bias in the near term (although the bias is bearish in the long-term). Further sideways movement would continue to emphasize the neutral bias, until there is a breakout this week or next, which would most probably favor bears, as price goes towards the demand zones at 112.50, 112.00 and, especially 111.50.    

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

Tom Baldwin: A Market Force to Reckon With

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MASTER TRADERS – PART 15

“It seems that these days few traders are interested in trading long-term. The monthly and weekly charts remain relatively unnoticed. Traders are so busy looking at anything and everything from 60 minutes down to 1 minute, that they let beautiful trades slip right by them in the very markets where they are trying so desperately to make a buck… Please keep in mind that the moves you will be seeing are huge on the monthly and weekly charts; and if they last for only a few bars, which is many times better than the moves you are getting on intraday charts.” – Joe Ross (Tradingeducators.com)

Name: Tom Baldwin
Nationality: American
Occupation: Trader/investor
Company: Baldwin Group of Companies

A TRADER WHO CAN SINGLE-HANDEDLY MOVE THE TREASURY BOND MARKET
Tom took a Master’s degree in agribusiness and worked as a meat packer in Ohio. He’d already taken a few trading-related courses at graduate school, based on a friend’s advice, he moved to Chicago.

Being a trader and investor, Tom founded the Baldwin Group of companies. He traded the 30-year bond, and he’s recognized as a force to reckon with. He currently serves as Chairman of Baldwin Group Ltd., the parent company of several investment and financial services. Companies in the group include: Baldwin Commodities Corp., a Treasury Bond Futures proprietary trading company, and Baldwin Managed Futures, a CTA.

Tom’s career as a trader was a profitable one. Wikipedia say he is also the current owner of Granot Loma, the great American castle on the southern shore of Lake Superior in Marquette County, Michigan.

He was inducted into the Futures Hall of Fame in 2009, which was instituted in the year 2005 to honor exceptional contributions to the global futures and options community.

What You Need to Know:
1.      Tom followed this trend. Period.

2.      Trading is a lot of hard work, for one. It’s perseverance. You have to love to do it. Also, in your business, you have to have a total disregard for money. You can’t trade for money. You shouldn’t make money your number one goal in trading. 

3.      As far as trading is concerned, patience is a virtue. Some people trade too much. They just enter the markets at random and trade anything that moves. So they’ll be forcing trades rather than waiting patiently for their setups to form. Patience is an important trait many people don’t have. Tom believes that patience has been the most difficult thing for him to work on. Although he’s made great strides in the past two years, he still catches himself worrying that the next bull market is going to take off without him. He expects to continue to improve in this area as he continues to gain more experience.

4.      Education doesn’t necessarily make you a great trader. Some newbies think the more they know, the better it is. But being smarter can also mean being dumber. More knowledge could make your trading results worse, because what you need to be profitable are simple principles. Many great traders believe that there isn’t anything special about them. They just show up to work everyday and study their asses off.

5.      Tom said trading is like any other job. You work hard, put in the time and effort, and make your own luck.

6.      For a successful trader, the ego has been put under control. They find it very easy to cut their losses. You don’t need to be self-confident that all trades must go in your favor. Tom has come a long way with this as well, of course, with having a few big winners under his belt would really aid his psychology.

This article is ended with the quote below.

“Actually, the best traders have no ego. To be a great trader, you have to have a big enough ego only in the sense that you have confidence in yourself. You cannot let ego get in the way of a trade that is a loser; you have to swallow your pride and get out.”

7 reasons Americans are unhappy

People living in the U.S. are less happy than before the recession


Americans live in one of the richest countries in the world. But — except for the likes of a still-smiling, still-crooning Tony Bennett who turned 90 this week — they are unhappier than before the Great Recession. The U.S. ranked as the 13th happiest country in the world, according to the latest World Happiness Report (with Denmark ranking No. 1). So why are they unhappy?

Princeton University economist Angus Deaton, who won the Nobel Prize in economic sciences last year, shed some light on this. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm awarded the prize to the joint U.S. and British citizen for his work on consumption, poverty and welfare. Announcing his win, the Royal Swedish Academy commended Deaton on how people spend their money on different goods, how much of society’s income is spent and saved. “To design economic policy that promotes welfare and reduces poverty, we must first understand individual consumption choices,” it said. “More than anyone else, Angus Deaton has enhanced this understanding.”

But Deaton is also renowned for his work with a previous Nobel Prize winner, psychologist Daniel Kahneman, which concluded that emotional well-being rises with income, but there is no further progress beyond an annual income of $75,000. “Low income exacerbates the emotional pain associated with such misfortunes as divorce, ill health, and being alone,” the landmark 2010 study found. “We conclude that high income buys life satisfaction but not happiness, and that low income is associated both with low life evaluation and low emotional well-being.”

The question of happiness and wealth has long puzzled economists. Some people recently expressed surprise that New York City — the home of Broadway, the Statue of Liberty and Central Park — was ranked as the No. 1 city where Americans are unhappiest, according to another analysis of data from the U.S. Census and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention authored by economists at Harvard University and the University of British Columbia. “Newer residents of these cities appear to be as unhappy as longer term residents, and yet some people continue to move to these areas,” it found. (Incidentally, Lafayette, La. ranked No. 1 for the happiest.)

“We need to look at why we are unhappy,” says Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, founder of the Art of Living spiritual movement and, most recently, a free app to track your happiness. Shankar, who lives in Bangalore, India, and is one of the most high-profile spiritual leaders in India, says unhappy people often need direction. “Usually, it’s lack of energy in body and mind,” he says. Our consumer culture doesn’t help. “When people are fed up with their routine, and life seems to have no aim and meaning, then people do get depressed, despite having so many physical comforts,” he says.

“Money is a little like health, you don’t want to talk about it with your friends because there’s a little bit of shame around it,” says Andrew Meadows, a San Francisco-based producer of “Broken Eggs,” a documentary about retirement, and vice president of brand and culture at Ubiquity Retirement + Savings. There’s been some backlash online to the previously accepted notion that Americans are eternally optimistic, especially in this election season. This grouchy video mash-up of “It’s a Wonderful Life” and Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” has clocked up more than 260,000 views.

But there’s a lot you can do to turn your frown upside down. Acquiring a more positive outlook does take work, says Jackie Ruka, founder of Get Happy Zone, a professional development organization. “Savor ordinary events, avoid comparisons, keep a gratitude journal, have meaningful goals, exercise and put money low on the list,” she says. “Engage in some social service activity,” Shankar adds. Indeed, Americans are generous when it comes to helping the less fortunate: 65% of Americans volunteered their time in 2013, a survey by Gallup found, up from 59% in 2004.

MarketWatch asked a panel of experts — some financial rather than spiritual gurus — why we’re feeling glum. Here’s what they said:

  1. Wages are not keeping up with inflation

One reason for all the unhappiness could be that wages are stagnant and many people are still struggling to recover from the Great Recession, Meadows says. Several studies carried out by independent pollsters say that more than 60% of adults have no emergency savings or less than $1,000 in their savings account. And among those who had savings prior to 2008, 57% said they’d used some or all of it in the Great Recession, according to a U.S. Federal Reserve survey of over 4,000 adults released in 2014. Some people think you need to have tens of thousands of dollars to start saving and investing, so rather than save or invest a little, they do nothing, Meadows says. “They ask if there’s going to be another crash.”

2. More Americans are heavily medicated

The rate of antidepressant use has surged 400% over the last decade, according to the CDC, though that may also be due to the heavy marketing of drugs like Zoloft, Lexapro and Paxil. The percentage of workers testing positive for illicit drugs such as cocaine, amphetamines and methamphetamines has increased for the second consecutive year in the general U.S. workforce, according to a 2015 workplace urine drug test of more than 6.6 million tests by Quest Diagnostics, a company that provides clinical laboratory tests on potential and/or current employees for companies. Some 4.7% of the general U.S. workforce tested positive for illegal drugs in 2014, compared with 4.3% in 2013

3. We are zoning out with gadgets

Computers help us escape from our emotions, studies suggest. Sixth grade children who spent five days at a summer camp without technology had significantly improved emotional cognition — recognizing different emotions on others — than those who spent 4.5 hours a day at home texting, watching TV and gaming, according to a new study of 100 kids by researchers at UCLA and published in the latest edition of the journal Computers in Human Behavior. Understanding emotion is a critical skill, especially for young children, says Yalda Uhls, co-author and senior researcher at the Children’s Digital Media Center at UCLA. “It’s been linked to positive academic and social outcomes,” she says.

4. 50% of people feel stressed

Did your dry cleaner sigh (loudly) when he set eyes on your mound of dirty laundry last night? Did another driver cut you off on your way to work this morning? There could be a reason why: Almost half of Americans said they’d experienced a major stressful event in the last year, according to a survey of 2,500 adults by National Public Radio, the non-profit Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Harvard School of Public Health. Young adults were more overwhelmed by responsibilities while older adults cited health problems, but both suffer almost equal amounts of stress. People often respond by sleeping less, eating less and exercising less. “Meditation and breathing exercises can help eliminate stress and renew enthusiasm,” Shankar says.

5. Lifestyles of the rich and famous

The way movie stars lived 40 years ago — except, perhaps, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in their heyday — pales in comparison with the lifestyles of Internet billionaires today, says Dean Baker, a co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank in Washington, D.C. “Today’s billionaires have islands and yachts,” he says. Reality TV and celebrity magazines are ubiquitous, he says. People who share about their fabulous vacation on Facebook are not going to help most Americans feel better. And keeping up with the Joneses is tougher now because of sites like Facebook. In the past, people might have been jealous if their neighbor drove up in a new car, but now they see a constant stream of their friends on seemingly fabulous vacations and at fancy cocktail parties rubbing shoulders with celebrities. “People are much less secure in their lives than they were before the crash,” Baker says.

  1. There are no siestas in the U.S.

“Americans are among the hardest working people in the world,” says Mark Hamrick, Washington, D.C. bureau chief with personal finance website Bankrate.com. The U.S. is one of the few countries in the industrialized world that does not require employers to offer paid parental leave. What’s more, Americans only take half of their paid vacation days, recent research by market research firm Harris Interactive and careers website Glassdoor found. The U.S. is one of the few developed countries that doesn’t require employers to provide paid time off. Americans also work 40 hours per week, more than many European countries. In the U.K., for instance, most companies offer workers four to five weeks of paid vacation when they join.

  1. Many Americans are unhealthy

Americans eat most of their meals alone, with families finding it harder to square away time to eat together and a dramatic increase in single-person households. The obesity rate increased in five U.S. states over the last year, and is higher in southern states, research published last month found. More than one-quarter of American adults define themselves as obese, according to the Well-Being Index calculated by market research group Gallup and health-care consultancy Healthways. But the real obesity rate is closer to one-third of the population, says Margo G. Wootan, director of nutrition policy at the Washington, D.C.-based non-profit Center for Science in the Public Interest, as many people (intentionally or not) underestimate their own body weight. Too much sugar consumption is also one of the most direct causes of Type 2 diabetes, Wootan says.

Hochschild is another wonderful market for buyers

Hochschild shares (LSE:HOC) have been performing wonderfully since March, 2016. This means that the market is another wonderful opportunity for investors. Whenever there is a pause, a pullback or consolidation in the market, it would mean a good entry point for those who are destined to make money.

Price has gone above the upper Trendline since April and it has not gotten back into it. In fact, it is not expected to go back into it. The RSI period 14 has constantly moved around the level 70, meaning that the current bullish momentum is very strong.

There would be pullbacks, pauses and consolidation on Hochschild, but buyers would be winners overall. The next targets would be the resistance levels at 400.00, 500.0 and 600.00.

Ignore this bullish signal on Mayair Group

Mayair Group stock (LSE:MAYA) is a bear market, which has been running for the past several months. But the current rally seems to be a turning point in the market? Is this sustainable?

4 EMAs are used for the strategy. They are EMAs 10, 20, 50 and 200. The color that stands for each EMA is located at the top left side of the chart. We can see that all the EMAs are sloping downwards, pointing to a weak market, though in the month of August, price has been making attempt to go up.

This bullish attempt should be ignored, for it is essentially a rally in the context of a downtrend. The rally is thus seen as an opportunity to sell at higher prices.

The only thing that would bring about a bullish signal on Mayair Group is when price crosses the EMA 200 to the upside (a Golden Cross). Then The EMAs 10, 20 and 50 would have started sloping upwards. Right now, the market is bearish and traders should go short.

Daily analysis of major pairs for August 15, 2016

As it was forecasted last week, the GBP/USD went south by 170 pips, to close below the distribution territory at 1.2950. The outlook on the market, as well as other GBP pairs, is bearish this week, and price could test the accumulation territories at 1.2900, 1.2850 and 1.2800.

EUR/USD: This pair went upwards 130 pips last week, testing the resistance line at 1.1200, and closing below it. Price should continue going upwards: The only impediment along the way is that EUR is expected to become weak this week, causing the EUR/USD to plunge. This expectation may also happen on other EUR pairs. Once price goes below the support line at 1.1050, the outlook on the market would turn bearish.



USD/CHF: This market has gone bearish in the short-term, closing at 0.9743 on August 12, 2016. While price could continue going downwards, there is also a possibility of a rally before the end of the week, particularly when the EUR/USD trends downwards. This means that the USD/CHF would continue going south only as long as the EUR/USD is strong.

GBP/USD: As it was forecasted last week, the GBP/USD went south by 170 pips, to close below the distribution territory at 1.2950. The outlook on the market, as well as other GBP pairs, is bearish this week, and price could test the accumulation territories at 1.2900, 1.2850 and 1.2800.

USD/JPY: As it was expected, bears came out as winners last week, on this pair. Efforts by bulls to effect rallies were scuttled by bears, as they pushed price further south, thus preserving the existing bearish outlook in the market. This week, bears should continue their dominance, as rallies proffer short-selling opportunities.

EUR/JPY: This currency trading instrument consolidated throughout last week – in the context of a downtrend. The Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market is still a valid thing, and price is expected to move further downwards this week, reaching the demand zones at 112.50 and 112.00; especially as EUR is expected to be weakened further this week.

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (August 15 - 19, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:
                                          
EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
This pair consolidated on Monday and went further upwards on Tuesday. Price moved upwards 130 pips, testing the resistance line at 1.1200, to close above the support line at 1.1150. Bulls might push price further upwards this week; however, there is a possibility of a bearish movement on EURUSD, since EUR could become weak versus other majors, save GBP, which is currently weaker than EUR. The current bullish effort would end once price goes below the support line at 1.1050.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bearish
There is a “sell” signal on USDCHF, especially in the near-term. There are support levels at 0.9700 and 0.9650, which could be tested this week. Nonetheless, the expected bearish movement on EURUSD might enable USDCHF to stop moving south, and assume a rally that would bring about a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market. Without EURUSD getting weak this week, USDCHF would have to continue moving southwards.   

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
As it was forecast, this market went further south last week, declining by 170 pips and closing below the distribution territory at 1.2950 on Friday.  Just like other GBP pairs (except EURGBP), the outlook on the market is bearish for this week, which means that the accumulation territories at 1.2900, 1.2850 and 1.2800 could be tested this week. The only factor that can reverse the current weakness in the market is an expected or unexpected fundamental factor that proves very favorable to GBP or very unfavorable to USD.
 
USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
According to expectation, this currency trading instrument was able to maintain its bearishness throughout last week, scuttling bulls’ effort to effect a protracted rally. Whenever price rallied, bears would come in to push it downwards again, thereby preserving the current bearish bias on the market. This week, the bearish bias could continue as price goes for the demand levels at 100.50 and 100.00. On the other hand, a possibility of a strong reversal exists, in case JPY gathers strength.  
                                                                                                                               
EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
The movement on EURJPY was essentially flat last week, though that has not overridden the current downtrend. Price would need to consolidate further for another week or two before the bias can turn neutral, otherwise, we would witness a continuation of the southward movement or a temporary reversal that would threaten the current bearish bias. A bullish reversal may occur, but it would not last very long, because of a bearish outlook on JPY pairs, and because EUR itself is expected to be weak this week.   

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

There Is Something Intriguing About Trading

“In my experience trading takes a very important and somewhat rare personality trait which is: the ability to see the next logical step and to then get it done. If this ability is lacking you will always be behind.” – Garachen (Source: Elitetrader)

Why Is Trading a Good Money-making Vehicle?
It’s a level playing field. Everybody is welcome.
You don’t have a boss to control you.
You need only a PC and Internet connection.
You can make money whether the market goes up or down.
The more experience you’ve, the better you become.
The starting capital is minimal.
You’ve great money management flexibility. You stay in control.
You choose when to trade and when not to trade.
Profits come naturally when you’re away from your system.
You can coach others including your family members.

There Is Something Intriguing About Trading
Most members of the public don’t believe they can trade successfully. They’ve been convinced that they can only give their money to professional funds managers to manage, without knowing that they can do this themselves.  Your parents don’t have trading secrets to give you. Your school doesn’t have trading secrets to give you. The society don’t have the secrets to give you.

While there are pros who can manage your money successfully, it’s true that when you’ve correct trading methodologies and use them faithfully, you can even do better than the so-called pros in terms of percentage returns.

Forex trading is a good business, but many people don’t understand it. It’s controversial because the public opinions about it are unfair and warped. Most members of the public understand other types of business, save Forex.

There are ways to make small and consistent profits on monthly basis, which become considerable on annual basis. Since most people don’t have experience and others around them don’t have the knowledge, they’re afraid to get in. The reality is; successful traders are just normal people like me and you.

There are good trading systems you can use to make money, and those who use these systems aren’t smarter or better than you in any way. The only difference is that those who use good trading systems have the willingness to attain riches through discipline.


Conclusion: Trading is different from investing. As a trader, you buy and sell within days or weeks, but an investor may hold a position for months or years. The greatest market speculators are faithful to strategies that give them an edge. They stick to those strategies when they work and when they don’t work. I pray that your fortitude will not be shaken in trying times. Your true trading potential lies beyond your innate gifts.

The article is concluded by this quote:

“Trading is not a sin, but trading without knowing what you are doing can lead to a lot of problems. Trading, in and of itself, is not considered as gambling…. However, gambling is considered to be foolish. Trading without adequate knowledge of the markets and self is foolish because, by doing so, you are gambling… There is a certain amount of self-knowledge needed to choose the proper trading method.” – Andy Jordan
