Dax Index Daily: bullish flat within narrow s/r levels waiting for direction (based on the article)


  • "The current chop is taking on the shape of a bull-flag and looks poised to break soon, but may need a day or two more of filling out first. The first level of contention on a push higher comes in quickly at the 1/3 swing high at 11637, and upon breakout the DAX will begin looking to test a series of swing highs created during the descent from the record high in 2015. Top-side levels in focus: Aug ’15 – 11670, Jul ’15 – 11802, and May ’15 – 11920." 
  • "Should the recent backing-and-filling turn into something more aggressive, we will look to the top of the late-December channel at 11481 and bottom of the channel around 11400 as key points of support. It would be important to hold onto the low end of that channel and the low of the day (1/2) which began the year. A drop below 11400 would be damaging for prospects of higher prices, and warrant a shift in bias towards lower prices. But for now, the DAX is acting well, global risk appetite remains relatively healthy, so we will roll with the notion of seeing higher prices in the not-too-distant future."

US Dollar Index – Too Many Questions: breaking support level at 100 to below for correction? (based on the article)


  • "As is the case with EUR/USD and USD/CHF, continued failure at trend extremes warrant caution although there is nothing ‘solidly bearish’ to work with just yet. Weakness below 100.51 (December 2015 high) would suggest a broader reversal." 
  • "100.51 (2015 high) is classified as a decision point (make or break level). It’s OK to lean towards the long side as long as that level holds. Weakness below would suggest a broader reversal is underway."

AUD/USD Daily Opens New High (based on the article)



  • "The AUD/USD has started Tuesday’s trading breaking out to a new 2017 high at .7384. However, the pair was quickly rejected by resistance found at a 61.8% retracement value at .7385. As seen in the image below, this retracement has been measured using the distance between the December 2016 high and low, found at.7524 and .7159 respectfully. If prices continue to trade beneath this value, it may suggest a daily turn back in the direction of the pairs primary trend. Alternatively if the AUD/USD rebounds intraday, it may suggest that the pair may make an attempt to reach the next point of resistance found at .7446."
  • "Intraday, the AUD/USD first turned overnight at resistance found at the R3 Camarilla pivot at .7375. Now after an early morning decline, the pair is finding support against the S3 pivot at .7325. This movement suggests that the AUD/USD is trading in a range bound environment going into the opening of US Session trading. If prices continue to bounce between these points, traders may continue to look for range trading opportunities between these values."
  • "In the event that range bound conditions end, bullish breakouts may be sighted above the R4 pivot at .7399. A bullish breakout here would suggest a continuation of last week’s trend, and traders may begin to target higher highs. Initial targets may be found at .7449 by extrapolating a 1X extension of today’s 50 pip range. Alternatively in the event that the AUD/USD trades lower, bearish breakouts may begin under .7300. Again using a 1X extension of the range, initial bearish targets may be found near .7250."

Brent Crude Oil Daily: oil prices surged more than 3% today, lifting Brent crude futures back above $55 a barrel (based on the article)


Daily price is located above 100-day SMA/200-day SMA reversal levels in the bullish area of the chart. The price was bounced from 53.84 support to above for the bullish trend to be continuing and with 57.56 nearest daily target. Descending triangle pattern was formed by the price for the good possible breakdown with the secondary correction, but today's daily bar was opened above psychological level at 50.00 so the continuing of the bullish trend is very likely in this situation.

  • "Oil prices surged more than 3% today, lifting Brent crude futures back above $55 a barrel despite data that U.S. stockpiles of crude oil and gasoline swelled last week and U.S. oil production rose."
  • "Rather, investors appeared focused on signs that Russia and Saudi Arabia planned to hold to promised production cuts."
  • "U.S. crude futures rose $1.77 or 3.5%, to $52.59 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Brent, the global benchmark, rose $1.89, or 3.5%, to $55.53 a barrel on ICE Futures Europe."

Dax Index Daily: possible breakout (based on the article)

Daily price is located above Ichimoku cloud in the bullish area of the chart within the narrow support/resistance levels:

  • 11,691 resistance for the bullish trend to be resumed, and
  • 11,485 support level for the secondary correction to be started.


  • "Today, we are seeing the DAX drop back into the middle of the consolidation pattern, which presents the risk that we are seeing a valid rejection upon an attempt to break higher out of a bullish pattern. It’s too soon to become outwardly bearish, but this price behavior does give pause to the bulls at the moment and could become meaningful if downside levels are taken out."
  • "There is a lower parallel coming into play around current market prices, keep an eye on this as the first level of support. If slope support fails, then in order to at least keep the recent consolidation phase in play the DAX should hold around the 11525 level, and if not, look for the top of the digestion period from the end of the year to act as support around 11480. A break below 11480 would quickly bring in the Jan 2 low at 11414 and bottom end of the consolidation which led to the rally to start the year. At that point the sequence of rally, consolidate, rally, would be completely broken and a sign of developing trend change, even if only for a short period of time."
The most likely scenarios are the following: the price breaks 11,691 resistance to above on close daily bar for the possible breakout, or the ranging within the levels will be continuing.
