Support & Resistance

Support & Resistance is one of the most used techniques in technical analysis based on a concept that's easy to understand but difficult to master. It identifies price levels where historically the price reacted either by reversing or at least by slowing down and prior price behavior at these levels can leave clues for future price behavior. There are many different ways to identify these levels and to apply them in trading. Support and Resistance levels can be identifiable turning points, areas of congestion or psychological levels (round numbers that traders attach significance to). The higher the timeframe, the more relevant the levels become.

Finding the most important ones can take many hours of practice. They exist due to an influx of buyers or sellers at key junctures. The fact that these levels flip roles between support and resistance can be used to determine the range of a market, trade reversals, bounces or breakouts. Each of these trades will have their own rules for entry and exit. TradingView has a smart drawing tool that allows users to visually identify these levels on a chart.

I'm not a huge fan of head and shoulders, however this has formed nice. It usually represents a trend reversal by having lower lows and highs and then breaking the support/resistance. This is the ABC correction to the 5 wave pattern upwards. It's also in a symettrical triangle. The famous psychological market chart would consider this in complacency. Once it ...

After all, it seems that we are going to have ETH in the 300-350s range. It actually took less time than expected to break the resistance levels that I originally draw. BTC is also doing fairly well, so, money from people who looked at ETH as an alternative will probably be taken back to BTC thus reducing volume. Anyhow, confidence is slowly gaining ground, and ...

Pure price action here. Try to get a tactical entry don't just jump in. Trend continuation but wait for a bit of sideways consolidation since the last rally may be getting overextended. Any comment is appreciable. Let me know what you think. Thank you. Trade safe. Trade well.

NZDCAD Monthly Close for Short

NZDCAD has spent almost year floating in the top of the resistance area created by the range the pair has been in since 2014. Looks like we may get a monthly bearish doji created at the end of this week. If so, I'll likely enter short targeting between 0.84 and 0.865. Looking back to my previous NZDCAD analysis I also recognize that this could be the potential ...
