Few of the news-reading bulls saw the dramatic falls in the markets coming, says John C Burford. But chart-following traders did.
The post I saw the market top coming (and banked 500 pips from it) was first published on MoneyWeek.
[...]Here is an excellent Blog You may Come across Interesting that we Encourage You[...]
As I take a special interest in the Dow (because I day trade it) and even though I do not use Johns methods I am going to start to look closely at what he says starting with what he said in " I saw market top coming (and banked 500 pips from it)"...... and to what he eventually follows up with.
Did he re-establish his maximum short position for example, we will only know days or weeks later, well after the event as you say. I can see where your'e coming from, but unless he up-dated every day the doubts will remain.
It's very much aimed at people with no real knowledge and experience of trading and technical analysis. The majority of his techniques are basic TA that can be learnt from any book. The Elliot Wave teachings are ludicrous and also very dangerous. He only tends to post the successful trades after the event and slaps EW labels to pretty much anything that fits. Now and then he will post a failed trades to talk about the importance of stop losses, risk management etc. All key fundamentals of trading that would be contained in any book that can be purchased for a few quid. Yet he is fooling people in to purchasing a course and DVD that costs hundreds. Please do not be fooled. This is daylight robbery at its finest.
PS So now "wee eck" is a "fat curry muncher".. seems you did not get the point of the original post
Glad Scotland is giving you the lifestyle you aspire to. Unfortunately we have 20,000 plus children living in poverty in Scotland and only the SNP seems to care a hoot about them. So, carry on being "fat dumb and happy" on your oil related salary. The rest of us will carry on putting food parcels in the trolley outside our supermarkets to feed our starving bairns!!!
Jim - have you not heard of 'wee eck' before? That's a very common name for the fat curry-muncher widely used in the media, and up here in Scotland.
Incidentally, I live in Aberdeenshire and like many others in my situation, am an immigrant brought in by the oil industry. Most of us support either UKIP or the Tories, not the SNP. This article may well be spot on - this household are tactically voting Tory (although we are UKIP supporters) just to stop the SNP getting in. The Tories have the only credible chance here of beating the SNP hence why, much as it grates us, we'll be voting for them. I know much of our constituency will be following suit.
The AIIB may be much bigger news than suggested here. Some 46 countries have applied to be founding members by yesterdays deadline, the UK being the only one in Europe who have secured their place early which may be a huge benefit to UK investors. In geo political terms, with China's close ties to Russia, its a master stroke and could leave the whole business in Ukraine and sanctions in a tricky place. It's certainly an assertion by China that they don't have to dance to anybody else's tune.
President Xi wants to built a robust infrastructure for Asia - half the world's population. "The very purpose of setting up the AIIB is to promote infrastructure development among Asian countries, to promote greater infrastructure connectivity and also enhance practical economic cooperation among all Asian countries," he said. However, it could also herald the beginning of the end for the dollar as the worlds reserve currency, something that won't have gone unnoticed by anybody.
It always amazes me when people think they are making some "laser like" political point by making up names for Scottish politicians.
Adrian, where did you learn to call Alex Salmond "Wee Eck"? (He is actually quite a big man) Did you hear that on the playground at second break?
It's not just unfair on those with Personal Pensions or in DC schemes but a double whammy to couples where one partner is the the principal earner, essentially limiting the retirement income for both partners .... How long before divorces of convenience due to the pension splitting rules sound quite attractive?
Thanks. I will have a look.

Dear Bill, Just how much of the Fed's success in dealing with the people it serves, can be put down to psychology, pure and simple? After all, the Federal Reserve workforce are ordinary US citizens like the rest of the population. We readers are left to assume that, although the Feds must be aware of their own shortcoming and the real state of the 'national balance sheet', they have let matters slide to such an extent that 'money feed' (QE) is the only course of action. This masks the underlying economic damage, reassures the people and maintains the imperatives. Very clever. Also, thanks for the interesting safari around Chez Bonner.
Are you joking? Tubby Clark? Hahaha
Bill, 'the bubbles are swelling', get out while you can.............. from the number of comments made here, I should say they've already left !!
Might be worth mentioning his dangerous labelling of EWT which is a lot more complex than he makes out. Newbie traders could try and adopt his labelling (which is simply changing the view to create a label) and lose a lot of money!
You are assuming that "the headlong rush from carbon" will continue. In other words that we should invest in markets that are being significantly distorted by government. I admit that its difficult nowadays to find a market that isn't significantly distorted by government but I'm always wary.
Well of course that vast swathes of jungle urgently need roads so that they can be turned in burning ash piles, all in order to fight climate change of course. Hordes of investors are needed for the achievement of the "good cause" and apparently the good cause needs even western advocates to stimulate it.
I've heard that some of the cheaper 'execute only' stocks & shares ISA providers make up their money by widening the spread on share prices, so that when purchasing shares one pays a tiny bit more and when selling gets a tiny bit less. Can anyone confirm that?!!
I will write to them and assuming I get one put the response on the comments of a MWT trader email. Is there anything that people want me to specifically mention apart from the lack of proof of trades?
I discovered you can open a currency account as a FirstDirect customer for free with HSBC. It costs fees to make transfers but that allows you to use your currency broker of choice.
Probably not worth saying it but as far as I remember he was short at 1.05. No proof of trades made, nothing published in advance equals worthless rubbish in my view. Worst of all this email is designed to encourage those new to trading to buy a place on his 'Trading Academy'. Its about time someone demanded some answers from Moneyweek as to what is permissable in a marketing email.

Don't hold your breath Duncan for any response.
There are two countries. They are distinct. Merryn, the reason you can't see the difference is that you only really know London and Edinburgh, the financialised parts of both.
Come on John all you ever do is call for a trend reversal and if it doesn't happen you say nothing. If it happens and then reverses you claim to have made a profit from a split bet strategy. Really you are just writing the same email time and time again about a different market and never stating exactly what trade you have open until after the event.
