How to Trade RSI Divergence How to Trade RSI Divergence

RSI can be used for more than just overbought and oversold levels. Learn how to spot reversals in the Forex market using RSI divergence. Many traders look to the RSI traditionally for its overbought and oversold levels. While using these levels can be helpful to traders, they often overlook points of divergence that is also imbedded in RSI. Divergence is a potent tool that can spot potential market reversals by comparing indicator and market direction. Below we have an example of the EURUSD turning 738 pips after concluding a 1444 pip decline on a daily chart. Could RSI help us spot the turn? To find out, let’s learn more about traditional divergence. (Created using FXCM’s Marketscope 2.0 charts) The word divergence itself means to separate and that is exactly what we are looking for today. Typically RSI will follow price as the EURUSD declines so will the indicator. Divergence occurs when price splits from the indicator and they begin heading in two different directions. In the example below, we can again see our daily EURUSD chart with RSI doing just that. To begin our analysis in a downtrend, we need to compare the standing lows on the graph. In a downtrend prices should be making lower lows and that is what the EURUSD does between the June 1 st and July 24 th lows. It is important to note the dates of these lows as we need to compare the RSI indicator at the same points. Marked on the chart below, we can see RSI making a series of higher lows. This is the divergence we are looking for! Once spotted traders can then employ the strategy of their choosing while looking for price to swing against the previous trend and break to higher highs. (Created using FXCM’s Marketscope 2.0 charts) It is important to note that indicators can stay ov erbought and oversold for long periods of time. As with any strategy traders should be looking to employ a stop to contain their risk. One method to consider in a downtrend is to employ a stop underneath the current swing low in price. —Written by Walker England, Trading Instructor Follow me on Twitter at @WEnglandFX.

HUNTER voters can keep a live online track of what’s happening in their local government area with the Newcastle Herald this weekend.

We will postlive results as they become available later today.

Local government reporter Ben Smee will update with information as it comes through from the 11 local government areas across the region.

He will also be blogging about those results.


Grassroots democracy

June 20th, 2018 / / categories: 苏州美甲学校 /

TODAY’S local government elections come at an interesting time for many Hunter councils.

It seems fair to suggest that some councils are facing crises of public confidence, for a variety of reasons. Financial problems dominate some, others have been troubled by seemingly insoluble rifts between blocs of councillors and still others are suffering from bad relationships between elected councillors and salaried executives.

Voters may be hoping they can help resolve some of these issues at the ballot box today.

In Newcastle most interest will inevitably centre on the lord mayoral race. Following the retirement of longtime lord mayor John Tate, a diverse group of candidates representing the full spectrum of interests, from big business to the grassroots, is vying for the job.

It can be a mistake, of course, to focus too much on mayoral positions and not enough on the real business of building a workable team of councillors. That must surely be one of the main lessons from at least a few Hunter councils since the previous election.

Newcastle, as usual, suffered from its share of counterproductive councillor rivalry, but Port Stephens, Cessnock and Singleton have all provided conspicuous examples of organisational dysfunction.

It has become more apparent in recent years that many aspects of local government performance are moving beyond the reach of elected councillors, throwing more responsibility onto senior salaried staff who may be perceived as being relatively unaccountable to ratepayers.

And the advent of the government’s model code of conduct for councillors, far from civilising relationships, may arguably have made them more poisonous than before.

Not all of these issues are necessarily amenable to rectification by any voting outcome at any of the Hunter’s councils.

But, with all their limitations – real and perceived – elections like today’s provide community members with their main opportunity to influence and comment on some of the organisations that most directly affect their lives.

Pop-ups on Nobbys

PLANS by the Newcastle Now organisation for ‘‘pop-up’’ restaurants and other events on Nobbys headland are welcome.

The iconic headland ought to play a major role in Newcastle’s tourism industry. It has a fascinating story to tell, and the panoramic views it offers of city, harbour and sea would be a highlight of any visit.

It’s extraordinary that such an asset has been allowed to languish for so long, though that may be a hangover from the bitter fight over earlier plans for a permanent restaurant, kiosk, accommodation and viewing platform on the headland.

Newcastle Now has signed a 12-month contract to manage Nobbys under an agreement that permits it to open the site on two Sundays a month.

That’s a modest start that should, with good management, make the case for more regular use of – and greater access to – the headland, for residents and tourists alike.

NOTHING could prepare Hawthorn forward Jack Gunston for the heat of his first AFL final.

Not even wise words he sought from his September-hardened teammates in the lead up to the big gamecould do justice to what he was about to experience.

The pressure on every kick, brutal nature of every contest and sound of over85,000 spectators at the MCG hit Gunston like a freight train at 7.50pm last night.

‘‘As soon as the ball went up for the first bounce, it was on,” Gunston told the Weekly in the rooms after the game.‘‘It was a hot 30 minutes in that first quarter.”

Gunston’s first foray in September was a resounding success.He finished with a tidy 16 touches, three marks and two handy goals from half forward on a night when the Hawks blitzed Collingwood by 38 points in the qualifying final.

Gunston says he was ‘‘definitely blowing’’ during a pulsating game, which was made all the more harder when Brendan Whitecross was carried off with a knee injury and the Hawks were forced to activate the sub.

‘‘To the boys credit, they dug deep with three on the bench,’’ Gunston said.‘‘To come away with a win like that was good.’’

Gunston, originally from Beaumaris,kick-started his careerin the TAC Cup with the Sandringham Dragons.

Football was already in the bloodline — his dad, Ray, was a VFA player with Brunswick in his heydayand spent time as a board member with Essendon.

Having showing tremendous potential as a teenager, Gunston was selected by the Adelaide Crows with pick 29 in the 2009 AFL National Draft.

After two years, 14 games and 20 goals with the Crows, Gunston succumbed to homesickness and desperately wanted away from the City of Churchesto return home to be closer to family and friends.

Against their wishes, the Crows facilitated a trade with the Hawks at the end of last season.

They were desperate to keep the talented forward, but Gunston had made up his mind to return to Melbourne and is comfortable that he made the right decision.

‘‘I’m just enjoying every minute being down here,’’ he said.‘‘The whole year has flown — it’s been that good.It’s a great bunch of blokes.’’

Gunston has added an extra dimension to an already young and unpredictable forward line.

The 20-year-old is a hard match-up at 193-centimetres and 81-kilograms, strong overhead, good on the lead and has averaged better than two goals a game this season.

While he is already playing a significant role for the premiership favourites, Gunston has plenty of development in the pipeline.

Being surrounded by superstar Lance Franklin, key forward Jarryd Roughead and team leaders Luke Hodge and Sam Mitchell, he is sure it will help speed upthe process.

‘‘They’ve been great to me,’’ Gunston said.‘‘Straight away they injected me with the Hawthorn way of football and helped me fast track into the forward line.They are great role models for me.”

TRYC star returns for final

June 20th, 2018 / / categories: 苏州美甲学校 /

SKILFUL The Rock-Yerong Creek onballer Justin Driscoll will make his long-awaited return from injury today for the Farrer League preliminary final.

Driscoll has only played one of the past five games for the Magpies due to the birth of his child and a stress fracture in his foot.

The 29-year-old is regarded as one of the best players in the competition and is an important piece of TRYC’s talent-packed midfield.

Doctor’s orders had him out for six weeks a recovery period that would put him out of action until after next week’s grand final but he yesterday declared an early return was always on the cards.

“I’ll definitely play,” Driscoll said.

“Ideally it’s a six-week recovery but I’m going to play after four weeks.

“I’ve been training on it and it’s feeling fine.

“It was my call, I told Zoc (Michael Mazzocchi) I wanted to play and he said as long as I could train he would let me play.

“It’s good to be back.”

Driscoll had played the entire season before the birth of his child forced him to pull out of the round 14 game at Coleambally.

He returned to play the following week against Marrar but fell victim to the foot injury and has been watching from the sideline since.

He has been named to start on the bench tomorrow alongside his electrical apprentice Daniel Hore-Smith, who has spent the better part of this season recovering from a torn groin abductor.

TRYC will take on Marrar for a spot in next week’s grand final and Driscoll says he was determined to play.

“We’ve got to win tomorrow (today),” he said.

Driscoll has played his career at the Magpies, apart from a season with Wagga Tigers in 2004.

TRYC won the premiership last year under coach Mazzocchi, but Driscoll rates this year’s team as better.

“This side has probably the best midfield I’ve seen,” he said.

“On paper this is the best side I’ve played in and hopefully that can show over the next couple of weeks.”

Back-up ruckman Tim Pankhurst has been taken out of last week’s team while Mahlon Norbury has made way for the return of Driscoll and Hore-Smith.

EXPERIENCE: TRYC player Justin Driscoll will return from injury to play today’s Farrer League preliminary final at Maher Oval.

2012 Crows top class: Broadbent

June 20th, 2018 / / categories: 苏州美甲学校 /

EXPERIENCED Leeton-Whitton defender Jamie Broadbent rates the Crows group as one of the best he has been associated with.

Broadbent is one of the Crows’ success stories this season, making a comeback to first grade at age 35 and he hopes another chapter can be added to the story at Narrandera Sportsground today.

Leeton-Whitton will face arch rival Narrandera in a sudden-death first semi-final showdown as both teams attempt to keep the premiership dream alive.

Leeton-Whitton is yet to win a Riverina Football League premiership and Broadbent was at the helm with coach Damian Lang when the Crows went close in 2006.

Broadbent and Lang were co-coaches when Leeton-Whitton made the grand final, only to go down to Ganmain-Grong Grong-Matong by 39 points.

Broadbent yesterday rated the current Crows group as better than the 2006 team.

“I rate them higher than (2006) overall,” Broadbent said yesterday.

“In 2006 we were a bit weak in a few spots. This year’s team doesn’t really have that.”

Broadbent played in 2007 with the Crows before heading to Tullibigeal for a season in 2008 where he was assistant coach.

He returned and played the last half of the 2009 season under Matt Smith and has since spent the past few years running around in reserve grade.

Broadbent was convinced to return to the top grade this year after a discussion with the new coach, Lang, and his wife.

He is happy he chose to do it.

“It’s been good, I’m enjoying it,” Broadbent said.

“I’ve played reserves the last couple of years and Langy came and had a chat to me earlier this year.

“I spoke to Neil McCallum, one of the selectors, and my wife too and decided to have one last crack at it.”

Broadbent understands Leeton-Whitton face no easy task today.

He said the Crows are certainly capable, but must play at their best.

“We’re pretty confident but Narrandera will be fairly tough,” Broadbent said.

“Both want to win the game so it will be which ever team turns up ready to play on the day.”

Today, the columns still balance

June 20th, 2018 / / categories: 苏州美甲学校 /

The 1980s were a period of great social, economic and political upheaval.The decade involved the Berlin Wall being torn down, a global recession and the rise of the personal computer, video games and MTV, plus power dressing and quirky stuff, too, such as the Rubik’s Cube.

Architecture experienced a pronounced shift away from modernist design principles that promoted simplicity, minimal form and functionality to a postmodern style, which marked a return to greater use of ornamentation and elements borrowed from earlier periods, often with a bit of intended wit and humour.

Completed in early 1985, this house on Hawthorn’s much-prized Scotch Hill is, in many ways, a classic example of the era.

Although the architect John Davey claims he didn’t consciously design the house with postmodern architecture in mind, the period nonetheless influenced him in ways it wouldn’t today.

Most notable is the prominence of columns both inside and out.

There are a good many – recalling classical Greek and Roman architecture but stripped to a basic cylindrical form – incorporated as much for their structural support as their aesthetic value.

The decorative gabled roof lines, metal trimmings and soaring convex bump are also a product of the period, serving as garnishes rather than having any specific building purpose.

But while the house retains enough of its postmodern charm and is recognisably from an earlier period, it has been updated, too.

Gone is the extensive latticework throughout. Like the columns, it had both a practical use as a sunscreen and, with the balconies particularly, an aesthetic quality.

”The lattice had a softening effect,” says Davey, who admits he wouldn’t use the decoration these days. ”The diaphanous screen broke down the mass of the building slightly but still retained a solid form behind.”

With the absence of the lattice, a more tonal, olive-coloured render has replaced the original silver-white, lending the house a softer, more subdued appearance.

Interestingly, architectural styles aside, Davey says the layout still functions as well today as it did 27 years ago. Replacing a nondescript brick Edwardian, the house – designed to accommodate a family with two teenage boys – is divided into two separate two-storey sections.

The front was for the owners’ children and the back for the adults. A steep, terracotta-paved driveway – to overcome the sharp slope of the block and the need for stairs – leads to a central courtyard with mature crepe myrtles and a carport between both sections of the building. The front quarters are essentially self-contained, with their own entrance – once open to the street, now shut off by a roller door – and courtyard, which can accommodate a car.

There’s another purpose-built garage alongside, which was the only part of the original property not demolished. Downstairs is a large retreat-cum-living area with open fireplace, bar and storage, now used as a cellar. Accessed by a spiral iron staircase, two bedrooms – one with study area and each with walk-in wardrobes, connected by an airy en suite with marble vanity – sit above.

A gallery-like walkway links this front section to the main, back part of the house, which is also accessed from the central courtyard. There is the familiar free-flow of kitchen, dining and living areas, although the lounge is sunken and carpeted, creating some division from the slate flooring, another ’80s feature.

Upstairs are the bedrooms, the main with a metal balcony (once lattice), en suite – featuring a step-up bath – and walk-in wardrobe.

The columns – rather than solid walls – contribute to an open feel, and a void above the family area, coupled with the mezzanine (a metal balcony again instead of lattice), adds to the sense of spaciousness. Davey also created space externally by stepping both back and front sections of the house. In the back, this allowed room for a pool and for the original owner to retain the tennis court.

”Architecture is continually changing and evolving but the house, aesthetically as well as its form and function, still works pretty well,” Davey says.

Time for show-and-sell

June 20th, 2018 / / categories: 苏州美甲学校 /

Two decades after being founded by a pair of just-graduated RMIT industrial-design students, Melbourne’s award-winning ISM Objects is a powerful example of how to sidestep the rah-rah of the elite design world and concentrate on producing inspired, enduring products.

Its latest initiative is a new retail space in St Kilda that also operates as an exhibition space for the high-end lighting and industrial design prototypes by others in the field.

Called Black Ink @ ISM, the space will have six-weekly revolving shows featuring elites such as Tate Anson, whose Milan 2012 Tryst stool is about to arrive.

As a designer brand in its own right, ISM Objects, headed by founders Celina Clarke and Simon Christopher, has a folio of award-winning lighting and other product designs, many of which remain in production.

”We have started experiencing people bringing in earlier designs, such as the Fab lamp [from 1992], asking if we can repair them after their long use, which is great,” Clarke says. ”After that period of time, it’s really nice to know that people don’t want to throw them out; they want a fresh shade.”

A hallmark of the business has always been its outside edge of innovation: its first product was a self-assembled medium-size cardboard drawer unit in 1990.

It has a penchant for employing non-traditional but compliant materials (its Madame Ruby light, collected by New York’s Museum of Modern Art, was made from the brilliantly coloured cullets of recycled car lights).

It has also fostered emerging talent through its 10-year-old ISM Sparks program.

Perhaps most distinctive, the company has its own production facilities in Moorabbin, assembling its own products via Melbourne-based manufacturing. The standards are exacting. It also manufactures for other high-enders, such as Bernabei Freeman.

”Having our own facilities means we can customise much more easily [the brand’s ranges often come with multiple colour options] and have short lead times from order to delivery,” Christopher says. ”We have the ability to change things, and offering a palette of choice is a real advantage. It’s a big trend; people like to individualise.”

The business partners are not nonchalant about their industry but they have certainly honed the skill of avoiding its glamour – Christopher prefers to read agricultural magazines to design tomes.

The Black Ink @ ISM program involves the ”Black Box”, a room with black glass walls and a window to the street – a canvas that has featured objects such as Bernabei Freeman’s stunning Stitch prototypes, the design of which mimics traditional feminine crafts, such as needlepoint, lace-making and embroidery.

”I think it’s an avenue to explore beyond what we put into our everyday retail range,” Christopher says. ”It is also about presenting it in a way that engages with the public and other people in talking about new ideas and discussing design concepts.”

Keith Melbourne’s Glass lights, which are about to released as a retail range by ISM, have also featured in the Box. The range comes in Cognac, Crystal and Latte.

The space is one of the stops for the recently launched luxury Voyager perfumed candle range created by Kerrie Golias. Her scents – packaged in design-savvy glasses and boxes in sync with ISM’s aesthetic – are inspired by famous gardens, such as the Isle of Capri’s Gardens of Augustus.

”We really wanted to instil a bit of a studio feel,” Christopher says.ismobjects苏州美甲学校.au

Melbourne City Baths’ cubicles were stampeded by 82,000 people in the opening year, 1860.In the small print of Melbourne’s history is a reference to the fact that throughout much of the 19th century, one of the qualities of individual fortitude required of Melburnians was ”that they had a high tolerance to stink”.

Unsewered and strewn with domestic and industrial refuse, the city centre’s streets stank. A large pool of human and animal excreta once coagulated in the low block where Myer now stands.

Without public urinals (the first was installed in the late 1850s), ”back lanes became de facto public conveniences” and ”the stench of urine became one of the ubiquitous smells of early Melbourne”.

A piggery was in Little Collins Street until 1868. Twenty years on, the malodorous overload was such that ”Marvellous Melbourne” had been popularly rechristened ”Marvellous Smellbourne”.

Aside from the perfumed rich who could afford to install a domestic bathtub – a relatively rare luxury until the late 1890s – or those who might fill a tin tub from the kettle in their kitchen each week, folk who did bother to wash at all had recourse to a dip in the bay or the river.

The Argus complained in 1847 that the garrisoned troops from Victoria Barracks were ”making an extended washtub” of the Yarra. Otherwise, there was the perfunctory sluice at the tap in the backyard. That is, if there was a tap in the backyard.

In the two-room tenements in the residential areas of the inner city, many families might share one privy and one tap.

Typhoid and diarrhoea were killing hundreds of people, particularly newborns, around Little Lonsdale Street, where the marginalised poor congregated. Health researchers trying to find the source of the outbreaks discovered that ”there was not one bath among 60 dwellings”.

As part of the solution of what to do about these great unwashed, the city fathers elected to do as the Romans did and built a public bathhouse. A triangle of land at the top of Swanston Street was dedicated to its construction.

The Corporation Baths opened in 1860 and, despite a tariff of sixpence for a first-class bath with hot water, soap and use of a comb, the 85 bathtub cubicles were stampeded by 82,000 people in the opening year. The most obviously filthy were barred from entering the more communal swimming pool.

As Melbourne cleaned up its act, or really just moved to the less foully miasmic suburbs, the old bathhouse fell into disrepair and had closed by 1899. Yet there still was enough demand for the council to fund an ambitious rebuild.

The ubiquitous architect of civic central Melbourne, J.J. Clarke, who among many public commissions did the Treasury Building and the Royal Mint, won the competition for its design.

The baths included two swimming pools, 16 slipper baths, a Turkish and vapour bath, a Jewish ceremonial pool and, from 1942, allowed mixed-gender bathing.

Although the riotously domed red-brick building has been slightly modernised since it opened in 1904, it remains one of our most eccentric Edwardian follies and to few beyond the present 1500 membership is, according to its manager, ”one of Melbourne’s best-kept secrets”.

The Melbourne City Baths is at 420 Swanston Street, Melbourne. Melway 2F B1.
