Setups for This Week:

Primary View
  • Euro-Dollar ended last week on a bearish note, further threatening the neckline of the apparent triple-top formation.
  • The pair is currently trading below the neckline, signaling a negative sentiment in the market.
Alternative View
  • A reversal back above the designated red line would serve as a bullish signal, indicating a potential long position.

S&P 500
Primary View
  • The index closed last week with two consecutive daily shooting stars, highlighted in green.
  • The sentiment remains bearish, as long as the price stays below the top of Friday's candlestick.
  • There's a potential for the S&P 500 to continue its downward trajectory, forming the right shoulder of a larger head-and-shoulders pattern.
Alternative View
  • A break above Friday's high would constitute a bullish buy signal, nullifying the negative sentiment.

Brent Oil
Primary View
  • Brent oil is currently at its highest levels since the start of the year.
  • Strong performance at the end of August and the beginning of September suggests a bullish momentum.
  • Daily close above the specified green area would confirm a solid buy signal.
Alternative View
  • If the price bounces off the green resistance area and moves lower, this could signal a bearish correction.
