AUS200 (1H): Potential move north

GLOBALPRIME:AUS200   SPI200 Cash CFD
This is a theory of curves setup (TOCS) ; looking at the price action of the AUS200 .

In TOCS, thee is usually a 55% chance of movement in the leading half of the curve (based on personal experience). Better than 50% is good in finding entry points for trend following positions. Zoom into the chart if text overlaps candles.

The AUS200 has been curving up nicely. Of course charts don't obey these curves - that's why there is a remaining 45% chance of the setup failing.

There is no target for an exit point in trend following. So, entry is the big issue. Exit points are determined by the market when price moves threw a trailing stop on a lower time frame. There is no prescription as to how to work that out because it depends on the price action in a lower timeframe. It is no possible to know that until if happens.

What's in favour of a north side attempt? Always look higher e.g. the daily time frame where the RSI is in a deep trough and which will appear attractive to 'punters'.

Comment: Update: Price action in lower time frames weren't great but a few pips collected.

With USTECH and the DJI doing a wobbly this earlier today, this may add bearish pressure to all markets.

The technicals may look good but the fundamentals aren't good.
