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
