    Good morning aba042! The sell-off happened as expected but reversed sharply before reaching T2. This posted a bullish hammer in the process and reduces the negative sentiment....

    Today’s official update on UK retail sales is widely expected to bring good news after a recent soft patch. In the US, the Philly Fed Manufacturing Index is on track to show moderate growth in May, while the GBPUSD rally continues to be supported by political factors on both sides of the Atlantic.

    Perhaps a bizarre chart attached.
    Daily SP500 showing...settings is a single bollinger band over layed with a prime MMA value.
    IF you need the settings again I can post etc etc.
    HFT traders utilise EMA and MMA as a means of price distortion and displacement where as we here usually regard them as underlying trend and support. Both ways are perfectly correct for their purposes despite the conflict of values IMHO.
    However note when the MMA closes above the bollinger value we have a change in trend to the downside and when we have a MMA close below the bollinger for two days we have the inverse for a swing long. Lately as with all sideway markets we have had a messy time of the markets but currently we have a swing long still playing out on SP500 but it is nearing its end game as the MMA moves ever upto the the bollinger.

    Sterling has a greater purchasing power currently so the above data may well be more muted next month.

    3 Numbers: Britain's CPI expected to hit three-year high
    Inflation is picking up in the UK, as today's CPI update for April should show. In the US, economists expect to see a faster annual pace of industrial output in today’s April report. And US housing starts are on track to rise in April, albeit with a narrow range relative to recent history.
