I am a big believer that charts speak louder than words (especially those spoken by the majority of the pundits in the financial media). With that being said, here’s a quick view of most of the major financial equity markets around the world. Live, annotated versions of each of these charts, along with other global financial markets can be found on under the Live Charts section of the site. Click on the first chart to expand, then click anywhere on the right-hand margin of each chart to advance to the next expanded chart.

On an admin note, I will be leaving town for vacation later this week, returning after the 4th of July holiday weekend. Trade ideas, updates and market commentary will continue to be light until I return although I will attempt to post any significant market developments that might occur while I’m away from my desk. There are quite a few trade ideas that have recent hit one or more profit targets or exceeded their suggested stop(s), which I hope to have updated before I leave town.

As always, feel free to contact me should you have any questions or comments on any of the existing trade ideas. As I’ve already wound down my trading recently, I won’t be spending much time on the computer this week & may take a day or so to reply.

Thank you for your patience & best of luck with your trading.
