Crude Oil - bullish ranging above Ichimoku cloud; 69.65 is the key for the correction to be started (based on the article)

Oil Price Daily Chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Crude oil dipped 1.17 percent to $62.15/bbl over the last 5 trading days, inking back-to-back weekly losses for the commodity. The primary driver of recent downside could be attributed to reports from the EIA that crossed the wires during Thursday’s session which stated US crude stockpiles skyrocketed 9.9m/bbl to their highest level since September 2017."
  • "Ballooning crude oil production in the US now tops 12m/bpd and largely contributed to the recent bulge in oil inventories. The trend looks to continue after the Trump administration announced that the Interior Department released a fresh set of regulations last week that makes offshore oil drilling easier for energy companies. That being said, the updated EIA short-term energy outlook report is due for release on May 7 and looks to provide oil market participants with the latest comprehensive insight over potential supply and demand imbalances."

GOLD (XAU/USD) - Gold Holds Support at 2019 Lows; 1,266 is the key (based on the article)

GOLD (XAU/USD) Ichimoku chart by Metatrader 5

  • "It’s been another busy week for Gold prices after last week’s breakdown to fresh 2019 lows. And while no new highs or lows were established this week – there may be a number of deductions that traders can move-forward with on the yellow metal. In this piece, I’m going to take a tops-down look at Gold prices, incorporating the monthly chart to focus on what got us to our current levels, and then drilling down to shorter-term variations in the effort of devising strategy. But, first and foremost – an identification of the current state of Gold prices, which is a symmetrical wedge formation that’s been building since the Q3 of last year. This formation will often lend itself to breakouts that can run for a while, as the digestion exhibited inside of the formation gives way to elongated trends."

Apple - should we be buying or selling (based on the article)

Apple share price chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Apple is still 10% off its Oct 2018 high, it's clearly lagging."
  • "For example, Apple was sharp, from October to the December low it is straight down, and from that bottom, straight up; like a perfect “V” (although the right side not having reached the top of the left side). This, to me, demonstrates panic; panic to get out, and then once at a low enough level, a panic to get in. Apple has been the darling, so both buyers and sellers panic. And while the seller side is not so great, the buyer panic (of missing out) is definitely a good sign. But, then again, with all that panic to get into Apple from the bottom, it couldn’t even make it to its old high."
