Setups for This Week:


Primary View:

    • The price successfully completed the double bottom formation (green), breaking free from its previous sideways trend.
    • A significant resistance break occurred at 0.865 (highlighted in yellow), signaling a strong bullish momentum.
    • An immediate target is set at 0.873, but the double bottom’s full potential suggests an even higher target.
  • Alternative View:
    • If the price falls back below the yellow resistance at 0.865, it will trigger a sell signal.

S&P 500

  • Primary View:
    • The index has moved out of the symmetric triangle (bound by red lines) in a downward direction, prompting a sell-off.
    • The target stemming from this breakout aligns with the blue uptrend line.
  • Alternative View:
    • A return inside the triangle pattern would generate a buy signal.


  • Primary View:
    • The currency pair has met a critical horizontal resistance at 0.91, indicated in green hue. This zone provides a suitable point for short positions, especially if bearish candlestick patterns manifest.
  • Alternative View:
    • If the price successfully breaks and sustains above the green resistance at 0.91, it will present an attractive long-term buy opportunity.
