 Setups for This Week:



  • Primary View:
    • NASDAQ encountered a crucial horizontal resistance at 15,900 points, a peak previously seen in mid-July.
    • The market showed a reaction with a bounce off this level, raising anticipation for future movements.
    • A successful breakout above this resistance (yellow line) would be a strong indicator of a buying opportunity.
  • Alternative View:
    • Remaining below this 15,900-point threshold suggests a potential short-term selling opportunity or profit-taking window.


  • Primary View:
    • The AUDUSD has recently made a significant move by breaking through the resistance just above the 0.65 (orange line).
    • Staying above this broken resistance solidifies a bullish stance, indicating a solid buy signal.
  • Alternative View:
    • A reversal below the 0.65 level (orange area) would switch the sentiment to bearish, serving as a cue for selling.


  • Primary View:
    • The EURGBP has successfully surpassed a key horizontal resistance at 0.874 (green line).
    • Maintaining a position above this level keeps the bullish momentum alive, validating a buy signal.
  • Alternative View:
    • Should the pair fall back below the 0.874 mark, it would negate the bullish outlook and act as a trigger for selling.
