When it comes to speculative trading, we like to ensure that we clear our minds of bias as often as we can and allow the charts to dictate our trades. This week we have four US trades that we think have good risk-reward setups.
It’s almost time again for the U.S. markets to open for the week. As usual, we have some offshore trade ideas to help you prepare for the week ahead. Mostly, our ideas this week are bullish, as the U.S. market is staying long and strong. Just remember, as always, that stop losses save lives. So make sure you manage your risk before anything else.
Perhaps not as exciting or even nearly as recklessly speculative as the trades that come from the now notorious Wall Street bets subreddit, but still some trade ideas on U.S. listed equities.

Always use a stop loss and always ensure that you are not taking more exposure that what you can reasonably afford. That said, here are some of our offshore trade ideas for this week.
As usual on the International Outlook blog, we focus only technical analysis. This week we mostly have some trading setups for bulls, although there is at least one short in the mix.

2020 was wild. In fact, it was a good lesson in accepting the true unpredictability of not only markets, but the world itself. It also further cemented one cardinal truth… you can’t fight the Fed. Especially when good ol Jerome has a Santa hat on and is shouting “Brrrrrr! Christmas is coming!”.
It’s been a while since we’ve put out some US trade ideas. Don’t chase them and make sure you stick to the stop losses.
The election is just one week away and we recommend staying light into the election and making decisions post-election results, even if we have to pay up a bit in case of good news, or just stay on the sides in the case of bad news. There is no edge in trying to figure out an election result for a trader.
Markets are feeling a little fragile at the moment, thus we’ve not produced many offshore trade ideas over the last few weeks. We do at least have one offshore short-term trade idea today that we think is worth looking at.
