Very high on the adx and monthly and daily time frames ... looks like the trend is exhausted ... the only way is down?

Hi   Nice call, you may well be right. Close to top of range, PA clearly struggling and MACD looks to be rolling over on the daily. The long tails on recent attempts to go lower indicate continuing buyer interest but if that mini trend line breaks could well see a plunge.

This GridSight percentage chart from FXCM Market Data probably has it about right.

As Tradeciety points out in the article in the last post, without momentum in a new direction you don't really have much to work with and until you do it's just a big bet.


Three common themes that combine to misdirect every trader.

 “Human nature is to be bullish in bear moves and bearish in bull moves … this is why most people that try trading lose.” (Richard Weissman).


“Buy the low, sell the high.”


“This is the top”.


So the trader is trying to pick the top and sell the high because this bullish move must be over. Right? Maybe, but without conformation you will be constantly losing money guessing. 

That usually means missing out on the first part of the move, check the chart, price usually moves to retest previous important levels, identify those levels and decide if there is enough room to jump aboard on a pullback.

    • Look Ahead to 08/02/23: Oil inventories; TTEF, DIS, UBER and BDEV earnings Oil, tech, and the consumer are set to dominate the markets on Wednesday, with earnings from TotalEnergies (TTEF), EIA data, and results from Walt Disney (DIS) and Uber Technologies (UBER).

    • 07 February 2023 Spot Gold The price of gold has extended its pullback from overbought territory over the last week and has found some near-term support at the 50-day simple moving average (50MA) (green line). Our preference remains to look for long entry on a bullish price reversal. A bullish reversal might be considered if we can see price closing above the 1875 level, provided that the 50MA is not broken with a price close below. Should the 50MA level be broken and the price reversal not confirm, 1820 becomes the next downside support target from the move. In this scenario we not looking to short gold but would rather be looking for a bullish price reversal closer to this level for long entry once again. Should either of these scenarios manifest we will update our guidance accordingly with resistance targets and stop loss considerations. Source: IG charts       Brent Crude Oil The bearish reversal off the 8770-level guided in our previous note has yielded a significant decline, although fallen short of the 7760-support target. The price now looks to be rebounding from oversold territory. Traders who have been short might consider this an indication to exit their trades. The longer-term trend bias is still considered down and should a bearish price pattern emerge before this level, new short entries might be considered. In this scenario a close above the 8770 level might be used as a stop loss consideration, while targeting a move back towards the support low at 7760 once again. Only on a move / close above the 8770 level would the longer-term trend bias be reassessed, and long trades reconsidered Source: IG charts         Our weekly technical report is compiled by in-house senior market analyst, Shaun Murison.
