Trading WTI in Ascending Triangle. Gold Reversal?


Welcome to this week’s Market Blast Technicals.

I’m Brad Alexander and on behalf of Valutrades let’s take a look today at USDCNH, WTI (US Oil), Gold (XAUUSD), and EURUSD.


Yesterday we promised to look at EURUSD from the technical side.

We can see on the 4-Hour chart that price action has just bounced off the upper trend line and that the Stochastic Oscillator is showing overbought and turning to the downside.Screenshot 2021-04-06 at 10.42.38

If we zoom out to the daily chart we can see that the Stochastic Oscillator is now heading into overbought territory and that price is in a clear downtrend from the beginning of the year.

Price action had fallen to support at 1.17 and the next key level below is 1.163.

Many analysts are looking at a long trade on Gold with the shifting mood in the bond markets.Screenshot 2021-04-06 at 10.42.50

Gold had tried to break support at $1683 and price action may be forming a Double Bottom on the daily chart, but we need to see price break the neckline at $1745 before looking at a Gold “buy” trade.

Zooming out we see the key Fibonacci levels of support and resistance are at the 61.8% and 50% levels so we also need to watch for a ranging market like we had one year ago.Screenshot 2021-04-06 at 10.43.02

Fundamentally, WTI is at the mercy of the global pandemic, but on the technical side we see higher lows in an uptrend into this Ascending Triangle with resistance at $61.70.

We haven’t looked at Renminbi for a while but we see this reversal from mid-February might be stalling as price action on USDCNH has retraced to the 23.6% Fibonacci level and the Stochastic Oscillator is heading lower on the Daily chart.Screenshot 2021-04-06 at 10.43.13

On the 4-Hour chart, we see a potential reversal pattern but we will keep an eye on this.
