Setups for This Week:


Brent Oil

Primary View:

Oil is still moving inside of the rectangle pattern

Last week ended with a decisive bounce off the support and now the price is aiming at the resistance at 77.3 USD/bbl

As long as we remain inside of the rectangle, trading bounces seem like a reasonable idea

Alternative View:

If the price breaks out of the rectangle, we should get a proper, mid-term trading signal


Primary View:

The USDCAD continues the bearish sentiment after a large symmetric triangle pattern escape

Last week ended confirming the 1.323 level as key resistance

Sentiment remains negative

Alternative View:

USDCAD climbing back above the 1.323 will be a signal to go long


Primary View:

CAC came back below the key horizontal support of 7360 and later used it as a resistance

The price created a head-and-shoulders pattern and is currently trading slightly below the neckline, indicating a bearish advantage

The price breaking the 23.6% Fibonacci will be a strong signal to sell

Alternative View:

CAC climbing back above the 7360 will be a proper signal to go long
