Multi Time Frame Analysis
Is the 4 hour chart bull flagging here? There are many ways to read the chart as some would argue for an inverse head and shoulder on the daily. Dollar bulls are holding strong as daily price action remains above the 20 ma. Next big move will be very much FOMC dependant.
Erratic prices as risk was on and off throughout yesterday – price action continue to trade within that range but the 4 hour chart shows that it hit resistance from previous high and if this maintain then we potentially have a triple top. This could well indicate further sell off in the Bunds if we have a higher DAX going into this afternoon. The opposite may be true that price break above the resistance and ride higher.
Euro continue to play its role as a safe haven assets – on a risk off scenario it rose – while rallies remain sold – daily chart shows the 200 ma is acting resistance while the 100 ma as support. Notice how price action is fast converging within this band and only post FOMC will we get a clear directional play.
Simply a classic bull trap but technically, price action in the DAX reached 50% fib retracement so a decent pullback such as this is rather expected. The daily chart paints a rather bearish story and suggested that there are more weakness to come forth here. The market gapped open then fill gap below before further sell off into late trading hours. Today could potentially see a weak revival as Europe open but a retest of previous low is in the card. The 4 hour chart paints an ascending triangle pattern with higher low.
Price broke below the 4 hour 200 ma as 1115 support gives way – leading to more selling into the afternoon trading session. Support found at psychological level of 1100 for now – dead cat bounce expected – again lack of demand at play but if price can hold above 1090 there is a decent chance for more short covering – is this a bear raid here prior to FOMC?
We remain undecided what to make of the silver price action but it continue to range trade – however, the bulls remain persistent here despite multiple attempts to close above 20 ma. It does look like a strong case for a well-informed buyer that is accumulating at these prices. This is something to ponder on as we head towards FOMC next week.
