Technical Analysis – US dollar index futures spike above 99.00, enter overbought waters

Posted on September 2, 2019 at 4:33 pm GMT

The clear upside direction in the RSI and the positive slope in the Stochastics are framing a bullish picture for the short-term, though with the indicators entering overbought waters, the positive momentum could soften soon. Friday’s closing price above the upper Bollinger band is another indication that room for improvement could be limited. In case of a downside reversal, the 98.00 barrier could act as immediate support before last week’s trough of 97.50 grabs attention. Another step lower could bring the lower Bollinger band, currently [..]


Technical Analysis – GER30 index consolidates above the 11,338 level; SMAs converge

Posted on August 28, 2019 at 3:31 pm GMT

The GER30 index has consolidated in a sideways market in the last 20 sessions, as the 50-period simple moving average (SMA) has flattened and blended with the 100-period SMA. The index has currently moved into the Ichimoku cloud, trading around the June low of 11,607. Directional momentum seems to have evaporated, something also reflected by the indicators. The MACD is flat at the zero line, combined with its red trigger line, while the RSI hovers at the 50-level. Furthermore, the [..]


Technical Analysis – US30 index takes back losses; 50-, 100-SMAs stop bullish move

Posted on August 26, 2019 at 3:54 pm GMT

US30 stock index adopted a sideways behavior after falling from the 27,403 all-time-high to a two-month low of 25,077. It is noteworthy to point out that despite the breaches from the price, the 200-, 100- and 50-period simple moving averages (SMAs) still maintain the bearish picture. In momentum indicators, both the RSI and the MACD are in bearish territory, suggesting that a rekindled negative move cannot be ruled out; the RSI deflected off the 50-level and heads down, whilst the MACD is below [..]


Technical Analysis – JP225 index unable to push through the 100-SMA

Posted on August 22, 2019 at 3:04 pm GMT

Japans’ 225 stock index experienced a one-week rally from a low of 20,097 past the 50-period simple moving average (SMA), to then hit a wall at the 100-period SMA. The 50- and 100-period SMAs have begun to converge and momentum has started to evaporate. The indicators, although in positive territory, reflect a decreasing positive directional momentum as the MACD has dropped below the red trigger line near the zero line, whilst the RSI is declining to try and breach the [..]


Technical Analysis – GER30 index closes above the 50-SMA and downtrend line

Posted on August 19, 2019 at 3:22 pm GMT

The GER30 index put in a rally, pushing upwards off the 11,266 low of August 15. The price surpassed 11,580, which is the 23.6% Fibo of the down leg from 12,600 to 11,266 and near the resistance of 11,607 from June 3. More importantly the appreciation of price moved above the 50-period simple moving average (SMA) and downtrend line to enter the Ichimoku cloud. Although the momentum indicators suggest a short-term positive directional trend in place, traders should be cautious [..]


Technical Analysis – US Dollar index pushes north again

Posted on August 19, 2019 at 12:57 pm GMT

The US dollar index moved north from the 100-day simple moving average (SMA) as buyers dominated, taking back most of the losses produced from the high of 98.67 on August 1. The price has come to settle above 97.90, which is the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the up-leg from 95.34 to 98.67, and slightly below the May peak of 98.23. The momentum indicators are reflecting a bullish bias as the MACD is ascending again above its red trigger line [..]


Technical Analysis – US500 index grows bullishly; eyes 2,940 resistance

Posted on August 19, 2019 at 11:15 am GMT

The US 500 stock index (cash) is looking increasingly positive in the short term, having surpassed its 50-period simple moving average (SMA) and the Ichimoku cloud and given the positive direction in the RSI and the MACD. The bulls, however, may need to lift the index above the 2,940 barrier to confirm further upside, while a significant break above the 200-period SMA (2,960) may increase buying interest towards the 3,000 level. Should the price retreat below the cloud, traders could search for immediate [..]


Technical Analysis – US 30 index caught in no-man’s land

Posted on August 13, 2019 at 11:36 am GMT

The US 30 index suffered some losses in early August, but managed to recover part of them, and currently sits between its 50- and 200-day simple moving averages (SMAs). The near-term bias therefore seems neutral, with a break of either SMA needed to provide a directional signal. Short-term momentum indicators paint a flat-to-negative picture. The RSI is flattening above its 30 line, though the MACD seems to be moving deeper into the negative territory. Further declines could encounter support near [..]


Technical Analysis – US500 index slips to retest 50-SMA but bullish bias not faded yet

Posted on August 9, 2019 at 10:25 am GMT

The US500 stock index managed to restore more than half of the losses it recorded after reaching a new record high last week, and even though it failed to hold above the 50-period simple moving average (SMA), the bullish forces have not fully faded yet. The MACD continues to pick up strength in positive territory and comfortably above its signal line, the RSI continues to consolidate in bullish area, while in Ichimoku indicators, the red Tenkan-sen is flattening above the [..]


Technical Analysis – US dollar index turns south from new multi-month high; halts at the 100-SMA

Posted on August 7, 2019 at 1:15 pm GMT

The US dollar index produced a new twenty-six-month high of 98.67. Sellers took control and logged a correction from the high on August 1 toppling the price to the 97.00 hurdle. The level is the 50.0% Fibo retracement of the up move from 95.34 to 98.67, coupled with the 100-day simple moving average (SMA). The MACD and the RSI are suggesting that a revival of the bullish directional momentum could evolve, as the RSI has rebounded off the 50 level [..]
