Setups for This Week:



Primary View:

This week will probably be decisive for DAX as the price is in a tight range between dynamic resistance and a horizontal support

Resistance is the upper line of the channel down pattern and the breakout would mean a buy signal

Support is an area around 11880 (yellow) and breakout of that line would bring us a signal to sell


Primary View:

On a daily chart we can see a small rectangle formed in the past few days

Rectangle is present on the major, long-term up trendline

Breakout to the downside will bring us a major sell signal

Alternative View:

Breaking the upper line of the rectangle and escaping to the upside would bring us a nice buy signal


Primary View:

EURAUD had a great September but now reached a key, long-term horizontal resistance on the 1.53

This may be an occasion for a mid-term bearish correction

Monday brings us a bounce, so that may be the most probable scenario at the moment

Alternative View:

The price closing a day above the orange area will be a strong buy signal
