Yesterday President Trump replaced Secretary of State Rex Tillerson with Mike Pompeo. General sentiment is that President Trump is pushing his protectionist policies with aids that will support his approach. Whilst the SPX did sell off yesterday, the bigger picture remains relatively bullish. The SPX’s exponential moving averages are in bullish formation. The green 3-day EMA is above the orange 13-day EMA, and the orange 13-day EMA is above the black 34-day EMA. Whilst this does not necessarily guarantee significant price increases; significant price increases cannot take place without this formation. The RSI(9) is also above 50 and indicative of a broad underlying bullish momentum. If the EMAs all turn up, this would be the next bullish step.
High Risk Warning Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.

Past Performance and Hypothetical Trading Past performance is no indication of future results. Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown. In fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results. You should not regard any transaction proposal or suggested automated or manual trading strategies as investment recommendations or advice. You must rely on your own judgement for any investment decision you make in relation to your account.
