A sizable beat by any count especially if one considers the size of the company."

Nikkei 225 Index - daily bullish breakout (adapted from the article)

Daily price broke Ichimoku cloud to above for the breakout with the bullish reversal: Chinkou Span line crossed the historical price to above together with Tenkan-sen/Kijun/sen line bullish signal and 19,289 resistance level to be broken for the bullish trend to be continuing.


  • "Back on April 11 the index succumbed to a fall which was small in magnitude but potentially bigger in implication because that move snapped to the downside a trading range which had endured for 2017. Indeed, it was put in place by the long climb up from the lows of June 2016."
  • "Strong support was rather scant below that and the entire rise at least from November could have been threatened. That could potentially have taken the index all the way back down to 16898.
  • "However, that fall seems to have been comprehensively rejected by the last few sessions’ action, which has in turn broken a downtrend channel which had been in place for nearly a month."

Apple shares - daily bullish breakout (based on the article)

Daily shares price broke 145.46 and 147.19 resistance levels together with ascending triangle pattern to above for the bullish breakout to be continuing.


  • "KGI Securities speculated in a report yesterday that Apple would be unveiling a Siri-based smart home product in order to take on Amazon's Echo. The analyst at KGI, Ming-Chi Kuo, stated that there is a greater than 50% chance that Apple will debut the device at their World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) scheduled for June 5-9."
  • "So, maybe Apple is late to the game. However, if they are indeed going to unveil an Echo-like device next month at WWDC, get ready for another hit product from Apple and from an investment point of view, get ready for Street estimates to move higher as well. As the title suggests, from product and investment points of view, better late than never indeed."

How to Use Price Action to Trade New Trends (based on the article)


‘The trend is your friend’
We’ve all heard it, and it makes perfectly logical sense; but in practice, this advice is so opaque that it’s practically worthless. Because even if you’re on the ‘right’ side of whatever trend is showing at the moment, the timing and entry into that setup is likely what’s going to determine one’s success or failure on that individual trade. So, it’s not enough to just find the direction of the trend and then ‘hope’ that we’re right; we also have to find support (or resistance for down-trends), we need to be patient and exercise discipline while waiting for the setup to build, and then we have to identify risk levels so that if/when we’re ‘wrong’, we have a line in the sand with which to bail in order to save the rest of our equity. In this article, we’re going to share a five-step process for traders looking to trade into new or ‘fresh’ trends using price action.
Know Your Time Frames
New traders often wonder ‘which time frame is ‘best’’? This is very similar to asking ‘what is the best temperature’. Well, it’s relative. Some like it colder, others like it warmer; but by and large most people are in the same ballpark range of comfort. Chart time frames work like this, as well. If you’re a scalper looking to hold positions no longer than 20 or 30 minutes, the setup on the monthly or weekly chart is probably going to be so divorced from the dynamics that you’re following that you might as well be looking at another market altogether. And if you’re trading a monthly setup, what’s taking place on the one or three minute chart is probably going to be pretty inconsequential to your ‘big picture’ setup.
Don’t Chase the Breakout
The period that is often most dangerous to trade a new move is also when it happens to be the most attractive, and that’s when prices are breaking out of previous support or resistance. Breakouts can be difficult to trade, even for experienced traders, because by nature it’s the process of something ‘new’ happening and thereby there’s no recent data or observations from which we might be able to derive strategy.
Wait for Support to Show-Up Around Prior Resistance (for up-trends)
Watching a fresh breakout can be trying for a trader’s patience, and for the new trader that can be a challenging exercise as their only real option whilst watching a breakout take place is to either chase it, or fade it (go short after a bullish breakout). Given that a breakout is, by definition, a ‘new’ observation of higher or lower prices, this is an inopportune time to open positions.

Use the Shorter Time Frame to Confirm Support & Early Stage of Directional Move
Once the breakout has been found, and once the pullback has gotten under-way, traders can begin to plot their trend-side entries. This is where the greater detail and granularity of that shorter-term chart can be helpful from the additional perspective that’s provided.
Setting Risk and Bailing When Proper
After the trade has been identified, traders are going to want to add a stop as they trigger or shortly after they open the position. That way, if matters reverse, the trader has some element of down-side protection. But key here is one of expectations: Price action is rarely perfect, and perhaps more to the point, price action swings are blatantly obvious and most market makers can visibly see where prices had previously reversed. Most market makers also know these points are often used for stop or limit placement, so these price action swings can be like a red beacon for ‘free liquidity’ for market makers executing on sitting orders.

USD/CAD - 300-day high to be testing for the bullish breakout to be continuing (based on the article)

Daily price is above 100-day SMA/200-day SMA in the bullish area of the chart. The price is testing 300-day high to above for the bullish trend to be continuing.


  • "The USD/CAD has broken to new yearly highs this afternoon, despite a general US Dollar selloff in the market. As this trend develops, traders should continue to monitor upcoming new that may help provide further direction for the pair. This includes both US and Canadian employment figures which are set for release at 12:30 GMT this Friday. Expectations for US Non-farm Payrolls (APR) are set at 190k, while CAD Net Change in Employment (APR) is expected in at 10.0k"
  • "Technically, the USD/CAD remains in an uptrend going into Friday’s news. If the standing trend is set to continue, traders should watch for a breakout above the new 2017 high found at 1.3757. However in the event of a price reversal, traders should look for the pair to first decline below its 10 day EMA (exponential moving average). This line is currently found at 1.3607 and continues to act as a critical values of support. A breakout below this point would suggest a shift in the pair’s short term trend."
