Setups for This Week:


Primary View:

  • The EURUSD pair has broken out of a pennant formation, as indicated by the breach of the upper red line.
  • This bullish escape is compounded by the rise above the descending channel delineated by black lines, reinforcing the buy signal.
  • Current sentiment for EURUSD is positive, suggesting an uptrend continuation.

Alternative View:

  • A reversal back below the upper red line of the pennant would negate the bullish outlook and serve as an indication to sell.


Primary View:

  • The NASDAQ index experienced a false bearish breakout from a wedge pattern, only to reverse into the formation again, which typically suggests a strong buy opportunity.
  • At present, the index is challenging the upper boundary of the wedge, and a conclusive breakout here could offer a robust buy signal.

Alternative View:

  • Should the price meet resistance at the wedge’s upper line and retreat, it could provide a cue for investors to consider short positions.


Primary View:

  • AUDJPY has had a breakout week, exiting a prolonged consolidation within a blue rectangle (sideways trend) and red lines (symmetric triangle).
  • The currency pair has also surmounted a dynamic resistance depicted by a blue line and a static horizontal barrier at the green line, solidifying the buy signal for a longer-term bullish outlook.

Alternative View:

  • A downturn that sees the pair slipping back below the key green line would invalidate the bullish scenario and potentially trigger a short-selling signal.
