Posted on February 6, 2020 at 1:49 pm GMT

The US 30 index is looking strongly bullish after surging above its daily moving averages (MA) on Monday. Prices hit a record high of 29,528 earlier today and the technical indicators are all pointing to further positive momentum in the near term.

Technical Analysis – JP 225 index looks for some extra gains in short-term

Posted on February 5, 2020 at 2:22 pm GMT

Japan’s 225 stock index staged an impressive rally earlier on Wednesday to cross above the Ichimoku cloud and close on top of the 200-period simple moving average (SMA) on the four-hour chart. Technically, there is still some room for improvement as the Stochastics are reversing north again within the overbought area at a time when the RSI keeps rising to reach its 70 overbought mark. The 23,700 level seems like a hurdle for the bulls at the moment but if it soon falls [..]

Looking at momentum indicators, the RSI is sloping up slightly above its neutral threshold of 50, suggesting that the market could keep rising in the near term. The rising MACD also supports this view, currently in the positive territory attempting to embrace its red signal line. A further move to the [..]

Posted on January 22, 2020 at 2:33 pm GMT

Moreover, the short-term oscillators reflect a stall in the positive move, with the MACD declining below its red trigger line in the positive zone, and the RSI falling in bullish territory below its latest trendline. That said, the upward [..]

Technical Analysis – Dollar index futures may lengthen bearish trend

Posted on January 22, 2020 at 11:12 am GMT

US dollar index futures are exposed to downside risks as regards the market trend. The first clue is the lower high and the lower lows registered below the 2 ½-year peak of 99.30 and second is the death cross created between the 50- and 200-day simple moving averages (SMA) after more than a year – if sustained. In terms of momentum, the short-term bias is currently viewed as neutral-to-positive as the RSI is moving sideways above its 50 neutral mark and the MACD [..]
