Technical Analysis – Soybean futures pause bearish action; could bounce up in short-term

Posted on April 24, 2018 at 1:42 pm GMT

Soybean futures for May delivery have already erased half of their gains made from April 3 to April 14 and are now consolidating losses near three-week lows in the four-hour chart. In the short-term, the downward pattern could remain in place as long as the SMAs trend to the downside and prices hold below them. Still, upside movements cannot be ruled out yet since both the RSI and the Stochastics are currently located in the oversold area, with the former fluctuating marginally below [..]


Technical Analysis – EURGBP struggles for more upside movement; still in bearish-tilting channel

Posted on April 24, 2018 at 1:35 pm GMT

EURGBP accelerated sharply higher in the previous week but it has struggled to extend its gains over the last hours.

The longer-term neutral to bearish outlook was recently confirmed again when the pair touched an 11-month low of 0.8620 on April 16. In the near-term, the price failed to break the 40-day simple moving average (SMA) and is moving lower, as well as the technical indicators. The RSI indicator is pointing down [..]

Posted on April 23, 2018 at 1:05 pm GMT

The RSI has been largely moving sideways in recent days, pointing to the absence of short-term momentum in either the upside or the downside. The stochastics, however, are projecting a negative picture in the very short-term: the %K line remains below the slow %D one, with both lines heading lower. Immediate support could be taking [..]
