Technical Analysis – US 500 index jumps above rising trend line again after negative gap

Posted on December 10, 2018 at 2:42 pm GMT

The US 500 index is trying to recover ground as it opened with a negative gap today. The price is climbing above the rising trend line, continuing the bullish outlook. The RSI is standing below the neutral threshold of 50 and pointing higher, detecting accelerating positive momentum. However, the moving averages completed a “death cross” on the daily chart – the 50-SMA crossed the 200-SMA to the downside. Further upside pressures could drive the price towards the next resistance of the 61.8% [..]

Technical Analysis – US 30 index cautiously negative in short run, neutral overall

Posted on December 7, 2018 at 10:49 am GMT

The US 30 index remains on the back foot, having crossed back below its 50- and 200-day simple moving averages (SMAs) in recent sessions. The price structure of lower highs on the daily chart suggests the bias is negative at the moment, but not clearly so, as the SMAs are converging; an indication the longer-term picture is turning more neutral. Short-term oscillators support the case. The RSI – although below its neutral 50 line – seems to be flattening, while [..]

Technical Analysis – Dollar index consolidates gains within ascending channel

Posted on December 5, 2018 at 11:27 am GMT

The dollar index has been moving sideways after unlocking 1 ½-year highs at 97.50 within the ascending channel.

On the upside, the index could retest the previous highs of 97.42 and 97.50 which are not far away from the middle bound of [..]
