Setups for This Week:



Primary View:

The first day of the week just started and we already have huge moves on the main pair

The price managed to test the lower line of the channel down formation

The test is so far done with a hammer candle, which creates a chance for a bigger bullish bounce

Alternative View:

If the price breaks the lower line of the channel down formation, the sell signal will be amplified


Primary View:

The weakness of the pound is the main story on the market right now

GBPJPY fell to an area around 148.6, which is a key long-term support

The price bounced off this level with a hammer candle on the weekly chart. That is optimistic but we still have 5 days for this candle to close…

Alternative View:

If the price breaks the green area, a major long-term sell signal will be triggered


Primary View:

SP500 starts this week with a test of the crucial horizontal support on the 3650

So far, we have a bounce and a hammer, which is promoting a bullish correction

Alternative View:

If the price breaks the green area, we will get a major sell signal
