GBPUSD – Sterling/dollar explodes higher, closes above resistance levels
The GBPUSD exploded higher last week as the bullish track continued in this market. This latest upward move came after price retraced to 1.2820 support (a level we discussed extensively last week in our members area) and bounced higher from there. There’s a key zone of support between 1.2970 – 1.2820 and we can watch that area this week to be a buyer if price pulls back down to it. We remain bullish whilst above 1.2600 key support.
EURUSD – Euro/dollar remains buoyant, grinds higher
The EURUSD moved slightly higher last week after a modest rotation lower. This pair is still remaining buoyant above support at the 21 day ema and 1.1290 area. Support remains at 1.1290 and key support down at 1.1118 area and we are still looking for buy signals to rejoin the uptrend on any weakness. Overall, this market looks to be swinging up towards the long-term key resistance at 1.1500 to 1.1600 area.
AUDUSD – Aussie/dollar surges up to test key resistance after pull back to support
After beginning last week near 0.7570 – 0.7600 support, the AUDUSD ended near the week’s highs at 0.7835, following a dramatic surge higher. It is wise to note that before last week’s up move, the trend was technically bullish and price had recently pulled back to that 0.7600 support area (check out my article on trading from pull backs in price). From here, we can watch for further pull backs to potentially buy this pair again on any weakness this week. But, we will have to wait and see what happens this week as price is currently sitting at a key long-term resistance level near 0.7835, so definitely wait for a pull back to support levels before looking to buy.
GOLD – Gold pushes higher after bullish pin bar at support
Gold moved higher last week following a bullish pin bar on Monday that formed at support near 1200.00; a level we had been looking to buy from recently. We discussed this pin bar in-depth in our members trade setups commentary as a potential buying opportunity early last week and we can see that price followed through nicely to the upside on Friday. Traders can potentially look for another buying opportunity in Gold this week on a retrace lower whilst above 1214.00 area. Resistance is at 1240.00; a level we could consider selling at on a signal if price tests it in the coming days.
S&P500 – S&P500 hits new all-time highs as uptrend continues
The S&P500 pushed higher last week following a bullish pin bar that formed on Tuesday. Price has cleared has cleared all recent key resistance levels and closed above them, showing the strength and conviction bulls still have in this market. At this point, we can watch for 1 hour, 4 hour or daily chart buy signals on any weakness whilst above 2400.00.
