    Dow Jones Industrial Average Trades Heavy into Resistance

    Talking Points
    -Dow Jones has been trading sideways since last Wednesday as SSI shifts towards bulls
    -Triangle pattern is our technical roadmap for price suggesting another 5-7% selloff
    -DJIA support near 16,500 and possibly 15,750
    Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) has been trading sideways for the past 3 trading sessions. DJIA closed yesterday near their closing level for March 23. Running into a holiday weekend, it makes sense that activity and volume was muted.

    The sideways price action in the US30, a CFD which tracks the DJIA, also provides a clue about the market’s respect for the technical pattern noted in previous reports (see links at the bottom). We have previously highlighted a potential triangle pattern that may trigger a selloff of nearly 5-7% towards 16,500 and possibly 15,750. Prices don’t have to fall, but using the triangle as the road map, look for some softening in the coming days.

    Above 18,000 we can consider the triangle pattern to be voided and we’ll shift our roadmap to our alternative technical patterns.

    Large Gain in Dow Jones Industrial Average Presses Resistance

    Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up over 200 points on Tuesday. The move higher pressed into a zone of resistance near 17,928. Though we think prices will eventually dip into support zone 2 identified in last week’s report, the wave structure allows for price to bump up to 18,340 and still be considered corrective.

    Pivot Points Forex Strategies-dji-m30-alpari-limited-2.png


    In essence, we are looking for a downward corrective structure that eats up more time than price.
    In the meantime, we look for clues about near term support or resistance.

    Therefore, a break and close above yesterday’s high would open the door to higher levels up to 18,340. Remember, this could be a ‘B’ wave which tends to be sucker waves. In this case, below 18,340 keeps the ‘B’ wave option on the table for an eventual retest towards 17,550 and possibly lower.

    As a result, we are cautiously bullish on the short term. A shorter term trader may consider a breakout above Tuesday’s high, while targeting the April 20 high. The overnight low could be the risk near 17,830.
    Below 17,830 and to the May 6 low of 17,550 becomes no man’s land. If price prints into that zone, we’ll await more clarity while anticipating an eventual dip to support zone 2.

    Gold Prices Rebound After Yellen’s Testimony Concludes

    Pivot Points Forex Strategies-xauusd-w1-alpari-limited.png


    The price of Gold is rebounding this afternoon after posting daily lows at $1,317.89. This morning’s decline was coupled with a rising US Dollar as Fed Chair Janet Yellen testified before congress. Yellen’s testimony yielded little in the way of future policy, but the Chair did note that the Fed has no “fixed timetable” for adjusting their current stance on monetary policy. With little information being yielded on the fundamental front, traders may turn to short term technical values to help determine the direction of Gold Prices

    Dow Jones Industrial Average Flirts with 20,000

    Based on the consolidation that began December 14, it does appear as though DJIA may dip slightly to finish the consolidation pattern. A dip appears poised to move towards 19,750-19,840. At this point, we do not think it will extend much, but could work its way back down towards 19,000-19,250.

    The medium term pattern does appear incomplete to the upside. Therefore, we anticipate the dips would be supported near one of the previously cited levels.

    If price moves below 19,000 it may become an early warning signal that another pattern is at play and we will have to reassess the wave relationships. Below 18,600 we will abandon the pattern altogether.
    If prices are supported and move higher, the next level of wave relationships show up near 21,378. It would take a successful breakout above 20,000 for us to consider focusing on the higher level.

    USD/CAD Weekly Trend: price is ranging near and below Yearly Central Pivot at 1.3575

    The USD/CAD is trading to fresh monthly highs this morning, despite Canadian GDP data being released above expectations. Today’s CAD GDP (YoY) (Dec) was expected in at 1.7% but was released at an actual 2.0%. While the USD/CAD's rally temporarily stalled on this news, the pair's weekly trend now spans 311 pips from high to low since Monday.

    Pivot Points Forex Strategies-usdcad-w1-alpari-international-limited.png


    Technically, the USD/CAD is now trading directly below a critical point of daily resistance. This point is the January 20th swing high, seen in the graph below at 1.3388. While the USD/CAD is trading well above its 10 day EMA (exponential moving average) and 200 day MVA (simple moving average), if prices fail to breakout higher it may suggest that the USD/CAD is prepared to retrace some of this week’s gains. Alternatively, a breakout above 1.3388 should be seen as a strong bullish continuation signal. A daily close to a higher high above this point would suggest that the current USD/CAD uptrend may have more room to run.

    Pivotal Points - indicator for MetaTrader 5

    Pivotal Points - indicator for MetaTrader 5

    Pivotal points as described in the March 2009 SFO magazine article "Trading FX Like Jesse Livermore Traded Stocks" by Jamie Saettele.

    Livermore's strategy was based on what he termed "pivotal points". Most traders today are aware of pivot points, and many traders use some form of pivot points (of which there are too many to count) in order to identify support and resistance, which aids in entering and exiting trades. Livermore was the first trader to refer to a pivot concept. If he was not the first, then he certainly was one of the first.

    Livermore defined pivotal points as days that contained heavy volume. After a prolonged move, significantly increased volume was a key signal to him that the market was at the end of its major move. Rather than exit his position instantly, he would wait for the market to roll over and confirm that what he saw was what he referred to as a reversal pivotal point. At the end of a trend, a reversal pivotal point may be referred to today as a blow off top or a panic bottom.

    However, not all pivotal points lead to reversals. Heavy volume is often present not just at the end of a major move but also toward the middle of a trend. Take a look at a stock chart to see for yourself. If, for example, heavy volume occurs and the market in question does not roll over right away (or bounce right away), then a continuation pivot point may have occurred. When a continuation pivot point occurred, Livermore added to or even initiated his position.
