Setups for This Week:
Dow Jones
Primary View:
June started with the price on the lower line of the big symmetric triangle pattern but now, the price is testing the upper line of this formation
A breakout to the upside will be a proper signal to buy
Alternative View:
If the price bounces off the upper line, a mid-term slide could be expected
Primary View:
A similar situation can be spotted on the USDJPY but here, instead of a large triangle, we have a smaller pennant
The price is inside and we are awaiting a breakout
A breakout to the upside (in line with the trend) will give us a signal to buy
Alternative View:
USDJPY breaking the lower line of the pennant will be an invitation to go short
Primary View:
This week’s newsletter is all about triangles and pennants. On the USDCAD, the price is currently on the lower line of the triangle and a breakout to the downside can bring a proper signal to sell
Chances of that are quite significant. The price shows bearish inclinations, as the upper line of the triangle has not been tested for a while
Alternative View:
The USDCAD bouncing off the lower line of the triangle will give us a proper signal to go long
