Posted on July 28, 2020 at 9:43 am GMT

The strenghthening MACD oscillator is also [..]

Technical Analysis – US 30 index regains strength above SMAs and Ichimoku cloud

Posted on July 17, 2020 at 5:26 am GMT

US 30 stock index (Cash) is preserving its recent positive sentiment despite a pullback from the 27,178 level. The climb in the index is aided by the upward sloping simple moving averages (SMAs). Furthermore, the intact positive charge of the Ichimoku lines and the distancing of the red Tenkan-sen above the blue Kinjun-sen line may keep upside risks alive in the very near-term. The short-term oscillators also suggest growing bullish momentum. The MACD, comfortably above zero, has slipped below its [..]
