Crude Oil - bearish ranging (based on the article)

BrentCrude Oil daily price by Metatrader 5

  • "Crude oil continues to be strikingly weak as its relationship to stocks and the ‘risk trade’ has become noticeably untethered. The initial bounce off the June low held some power, but the past couple of sessions after retesting the monthly low the bounce has been smaller."
  • "A turn down from right around here (also the trend-line from last month) will help complete a descending wedge pattern. Given the general trend and nature of the pattern (lower high, flat bottom structure) it is anticipated that a downside break will develop."
  • "A sustained decline through $50.54 should have the WTI contract picking up downside momentum again. The height of the wedge implies about a $4 drop, or about $46. This aligns with the weekly chart, where a confluence of support runs over from 2016."
  • "A failure to roll down and break the $50.54 level will keep the outlook neutral, while some work on the upside will be needed to turn the trading bias bullish. The wedge could develop further and break to the top-side but risk of the breakout failing will be elevated given the generally weak backdrop in place."

USD/CAD - ranging to the bullish reversal; 1.3431 is the key (based on the article)

USD/CAD daily Ichimoku chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Looking at the daily chart we notice USD/CAD eying the higher end of the mentioned consolidation zone however, the pair needs to clear 1.3457. Therefore, any failure to close above this level may send the price to retest 1.3377. Its worth noting that any close below 1.3377 may lead USD/CAD towards 1.3289. Although the weekly support levels at 1.3358 and 1.3332 should be watched closely."
  • "Looking at the four-hour chart, we notice on Jun 11 USD/CAD found support at 1.3250 and started an uptrend creating higher highs with higher lows. However, since the start of this week this trend has paused reflecting bulls’ reluctance to continue pushing higher. Uptrend could start to accelerate if USD/CAD breaks above 1.3457 this could lead the pair towards 1.3493 however, weekly resistance level at 1.3476 need to be kept in focus. On the other hand, the pair’s outlook could shift if USD/CAD breaks below 1.3393 (the weekly low). This suggests the price trade even lower towards 1.3358 contingent on clearing the weekly support at 1.3377. See the chart for more key levels if the selloff continues below 1.3358."

Hammer Candlestick Patterns (based on the article

Hammer Candlestick Pattern by Metatrader 5

The hammer candlestick pattern is frequently observed in the forex market and provides important insight into trend reversals. It’s crucial that traders understand that there is more to the hammer candle than simply spotting it on a chart. Price action and the location of the hammer candle, when viewed within the existing trend, are both crucial validating factors for this candle.

What is a Hammer Candlestick?

The hammer candlestick is found at the bottom of a downtrend and signals a potential (bullish) reversal in the market.The most common hammer candle is the bullish hammer which has a small candle body and an extended lower wick – showing rejection of lower prices.The other pattern traders look out for is the inverted hammer, which is an upside-down bullish hammer. 

Bullish Hammer Candlestick 

The hammer candlestick appears at the bottom of a down trend and signals a bullish reversal. The hammer candle has a small body, little to no upper wick, and a long lower wick - resembling a ‘hammer’. 
The pattern indicates that the price dropped to new lows, but subsequent buying pressure forced the price to close higher, hinting at a potential reversal. The extended lower wick is indicative of the rejection of lower prices. 

Inverted Hammer Candlestick

The inverted hammer candlestick, like the bullish hammer, also provides a signal for a bullish reversal. The candle is, as the name suggests, an inverted hammer. The candle has a long extended upper wick, a small real body with little or no lower wick. 
The candle opens at the bottom of a downtrend before the bulls push price upwards – reflected in the extended upper wick. Price does eventually return down towards the opening level but closes above the open, to provide the bullish signal. Should the buying momentum continue, this will be seen in the subsequent price action moving higher.
