Posted on October 23, 2020 at 12:07 pm GMT

The US 100 stock index (cash) resumed this week’s sideways move within the 11,619 and 11,743 boundaries, represented by the 61.8% and 50% Fibonacci levels of the rally that started from 11,212, despite briefly tumbling to a two-week low of 10,743. The 100-period simple moving average (SMA) on the four-hour chart is currently keeping the price under control, and more importantly, near the surface of the descending channel, suggesting that this could be a make or break point for the market.

Technical Analysis – GER 30 index recovers a little; negative risks remain

Posted on October 22, 2020 at 3:06 pm GMT

Germany 30 stock index (Cash) looks to be fading further despite recently finding footing at the 12,339 level. Painting a deteriorating picture are the negatively charged Ichimoku lines, one of which has capped additional progress from the price bounce. Furthermore, the bearish tone of the simple moving averages (SMAs), and specifically the downwards overlap of the 100-period SMA by the 50-period one, may accelerate the decline. The short-term oscillators display the recent price gains but also consider a stall in [..]

Technical Analysis – US 500 index extends positive move; next target at all-time high

Posted on October 12, 2020 at 9:15 am GMT

Technical Analysis – US 30 index bullish at 1-month highs

Posted on October 9, 2020 at 8:18 am GMT

The US 30 index is continuing its two-week-old rebound but with slower momentum, reaching one-month highs of 28,600 today. The short-term bias looks quite positive as the MACD is surpassing the trigger line, jumping in the positive area.

Posted on October 5, 2020 at 9:28 am GMT
