Setups for This Week:
- The week finishes strong with the Prelim University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment from the US, anticipated at 65.5%.
- The price created a head-and-shoulders pattern (yellow) and broke the neckline of this formation last week.
- The neckline lies on 15700 points (orange).
- The breakout of this neckline gives a sell signal.
- The price has already tested this level and confirmed it as resistance.
- If the price climbs back above the orange area, it would provide a buy signal based on the false breakout.
- Dow Jones has created a double top formation (green) on crucial resistance at 34300 points (yellow).
- This pattern could signal negativity, but the price is still above the symmetric triangle marked with the blue color.
- If the price breaks the lower line of the triangle (which is an up-trend line), it will give us a sell signal.
- If the price breaks through the 34300 points resistance, it would provide a legitimate, long-term signal to buy.
- Oil has been moving sideways since the beginning of May.
- Most recently, the price has climbed significantly higher and managed to break the long-term down-trend line (red).
- If the price breaks out of the sideways trend (orange) to the upside, it will trigger a buy signal.
- If the price bounces off the upper line of the sideways trend, it will give us a signal to sell.
