USD/JPY - bearish ranging; 105.04 is the key (based on the article)

USD/JPY chart by Metatrader 5

  • "The Japanese Yen remains the beneficiary of a broad fundamental haven bid against the US Dollar with USDJPY bulls’ current modest fightback unlikely to last. The pair got a boost on Tuesday of this week when the Trump administration indicated that some tariffs against China could be delayed."
  • "However, much of that rise has already been retraced and the Dollar remains very close to lows not seen since March 2018 if the ‘flash crash low of 104.68 hit on January 2 this year is ignored. If as currently seems likely the pair is indeed topping out again, support can be expected at those previous significant low. That come in at 105.05. Should they give way in turn, then more interesting and possibly resilient support lies below it at 104.65."

Crypto News - Bitcoin: daily ranging near bullish reversal; weekly bullish with symmetric triangle pattern for direction (based on the article)

BTC/USD daily Brainwashing chart by Metatrader 5

  • "On August 6, Bitcoin rallied to 12,318 however, the price slipped back after, then settled below 12,000 handle. This week, BTC/USD traded lower and tested yesterday 9,484 - its lowest level in over two weeks. Alongside this, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) crossed below 50 however, the oscillator remained flat around 44 reflecting the seller’s indecision to keep sending the price lower." 
  • "Looking at the daily chart, we notice yesterday Bitcoin declined to its lowest level since the start of August however, the cryptocurrency rallied after then closed in the higher trading zone 10,300 – 12,320. Thus, a close above the high end of the zone could push the price towards the high end. Nonetheless, the daily resistance levels and area marked on the chart (zoomed in) need to be considered. On the flip-side, a close below the low end could press the price to test 9500 again. Although, the daily support level at 9,940 needs to be monitored. Further close below 9500 may send BTC/USD towards the monthly support at 9080. See the chart to know more about the lower trading zone/s with weekly support levels in a further bearish scenario."

USD/JPY - bearish ranging within 105/107 support/resistance levels (based on the article)

USD/JPY daily Brainwashing chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Looking at the daily chart, we notice at the start of this week USD/JPY opened with an upward gap, since then the pair has been moving ineffectively reflecting the market’s indecision. Currently, the price is moving in the trading zone 105.50 – 107.30 and eyes a test of the high end of the zone, contingent on overtaking the 107.00 handle."
  • "Thus, a close above the high end could push USDJPY towards 108.61. Although, the weekly resistance levels and area marked on the chart (zoomed in) should be kept in focus."
  • "On the other hand, a close below the low end may send the USDJPY towards 104.77 however, the weekly support area underlined on the chart needs to be watched closely. Further close below 104.77 could press the price even lower towards 103.07. The weekly support levels should be considered."

Using Price Action As Your First Indicator (based on the article)


  • Price action is the study or analysis of price movement in the market. Traders use price action to form opinions and base decisions on trends, key price levels and suitable risk management. Trend identification is frequently utilized as the initial step in price action trading. All other facets to price action indicators require a trend basis to begin price action analysis.
  • Technical analysis setups generally begin with price action as the initial form of evaluation. The first thing to remember when using an indicator is that it is a function of price action. The indicator itself is not the ultimate tool when it comes to trading, but rather comes in behind price action. Price action governs the information that the indicator will ultimately provide on the chart. As such, a trader must determine what price action is doing (i.e. the trend) before consulting the indicator for an entry signal. Once the trend is determined, the trader can then consult the indicator for an entry signal in the direction of the trend.Traders trade on the price movement of an instrument therefore, the focus is on the change in price as opposed to the change in indicator value. Some traders base trading decisions and analysis purely on price action whilst other prefer a combination of price action and technical indicators which serve as a support system.
  • Technical indicators are derivatives of price action - price action governs the information that indicators provide on the chart. These indicators are calculated using varying periodic price data which provide substantiation for entry, exit, and stop distance criteria. Trend identification is also important in market analysis to ascertain how the market is functioning on a holistic scale (time frame dependent).
  • Price action is a broad technical analysis technique that incorporates various trading strategies which traders apply to analyze the markets. Technical indicators work well in conjunction with price action to allow traders to formulate more accurate trade decisions.

Crude Oil - bearish trend to be resumed; 55.86 is the key (based on  the article)

Crude Oil daily chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Crude oil prices sank over 1.5% this past week in choppy trading. I noted early last Tuesday that crude oil prices were showing signs of weakness as volatility climbed amid lingering US-China trade war uncertainty as Jackson Hole loomed. Surely enough, the expectation came to fruition as bearish fundamentals aligned with a technical backdrop that pointed to the possibility of sustained selling pressure."
  • "Evidence of waning bullish prospects for crude oil prices from a technical standpoint is also suggested by the wilting RSI as the indicator dipped back below 50 and looks to continue its overarching trend lower since April. Moreover, the struggle to reclaim the 50-day and 200-day simple moving averages may keep a lid on any rebound attempt."
