Technical Analysis – US500 Index plots new high, flirts with 138.2% Fibonacci extension

Posted on November 18, 2019 at 2:41 pm GMT

US 500 stock index continues to gain ground after the push up on October 3, showing no definitive signs of retreating as it clocks yet another fresh all-time high of 3,128.12. The price has distanced itself above the Ichimoku cloud, as has the Tenkan-sen done above the Kijun-sen line, backing the positive picture. Furthermore, the ADX also implies a strong uptrend is in place. The short-term oscillators reflect some easing in positive momentum and could warrant a nearing pullback. The [..]

Technical Analysis – GER30 index loses steam after fresh 23-month high; uptrend intact

Posted on November 14, 2019 at 12:50 pm GMT

The GER30 stock index paused its rally after registering a fresh-month high of 13,307. The falling RSI, which is trying to exit the overbought area above 70, suggests that the bullish action may be overstretched and it’s time for a downward correction. The easing momentum in the MACD is endorsing the move as well. Yet, in terms of trend, the fact that the price is above its upward-sloping simple moving averages (SMAs) and the Ichimoku cloud hints that the market may likely maintain its upward pattern. The 13,140 [..]

Technical Analysis – US30 stock index remains positive, ascent eases from all-time high

Posted on November 11, 2019 at 4:55 pm GMT

US30 stock index seems to be taking a breather as it corrected lower from the all-time high of 27,773 and looks to be heading towards the 50-period simple moving average (SMA), which is located currently at the recent swing low of 27,406. The short-term oscillators reflect weakening in the positive momentum and even possibly a shift into a sideways market. The MACD remains in the positive zone but has moved below its red trigger line. The RSI has reached its [..]

Technical Analysis – US500 index prints fifth week of gains; bias positive overall

Posted on November 6, 2019 at 8:19 am GMT

The US 500 stock index (cash) is recording its fifth week of gains within an ascending channel. Having reached a fresh record high of 3,087, the market may experience some weakness in the short-term as the price touches the upper Bollinger band and the RSI reverses lower just below its 70 overbought mark. Yet, with the latter holding well above its 50 neutral mark and the market trend showing no signs of reversing as the index keeps printing higher lows and higher [..]

Technical Analysis – GER30 index bullish bias back on track

Posted on November 4, 2019 at 1:36 pm GMT

GER30 stock index bulls pushed above the 12,985 previous high from October 28, realigning the index with the short-term positive picture. Further backing the positive momentum is the fresh bullish crossover of the upward sloping Tenkan-sen and Kijun-sen lines and the price distancing itself above the Ichimoku cloud. The MACD, still in the positive zone, is increasing above its red trigger line, supporting the positive view. The upward sloping RSI has ascended into the overbought territory, also supporting further advances. [..]

Technical Analysis – Is JP 225 index preparing for a trend reversal?

Posted on October 31, 2019 at 12:19 pm GMT

Japan’s 225 stock index seems to be showing signs of a bearish divergence in the four-hour chart as the stock price has been making higher highs while the RSI and the MACD have been printing lower lows since the mid- October, hinting that the market may be preparing for a trend reversal. A confirmation could come around the previous low of 22,480 and the bottom of the Ichimoku cloud, but before that the market should first breach the 22,735-22,600 area. In the event of [..]

Technical Analysis – US 500 index rallies to new record highs

Posted on October 31, 2019 at 12:02 pm GMT

The US 500 stock index (cash) has finally breached its previous all-time high of 3,027 that kept bullish pressure under control over the past 3 months, stretching its December uptrend towards a new top of 3,056. Although the RSI is slowing down, it remains well above its 50 neutral mark, and with the MACD strengthening its positive momentum, it seems that the bulls may not easily give up the game in the short-term. Key resistance to upside corrections could be identified near [..]

Technical Analysis – UK100 stock index soars above 200-SMA; gains halted at 76.4% Fibonacci

Posted on October 24, 2019 at 3:14 pm GMT

UK100 stock index rallied above the 200-period simple moving average (SMA) on the four-hour chart and up to 7,337, reinforcing the 3-week positive picture and confirming the bounce off the 7,000 level on October 3. The MACD is rising above its red trigger line in the positive zone, favoring more improvements.

Technical Analysis – GER30 index pauses despite bullish bias

Posted on October 18, 2019 at 12:58 pm GMT

GER30 stock index bulls have consolidated around the 12661 (resistance-turned-support) level of July 4. The bulls tried to extend higher, but sellers reversed the price back down to 12,590, which is the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of the up leg from 11,878 to 12,815. Despite the sideways move, the short-term oscillators now lean towards an improving market. The RSI is reflecting a minor improvement in positive momentum as it has turned back up in bullish territory, looking to reclaim the 70 [..]

Technical Analysis – Dollar Index futures search for a rebound near pivot point

Posted on October 18, 2019 at 11:14 am GMT

The US dollar index futures crashed below the short-term ascending line drawn from 95.34 and are now set to beat a longer support line stretched from March 2018. The fast-Stochastics and the RSI, however, signal that the bearish action is running out of fuel and hence a rebound off the line is likely as the indicators are hovering near oversold levels. Note that the market action has been also taking place around the lower bollinger band, increasing the odds for an upside [..]
