The trend remains bearish after the break of the long term support at 2,528. With 2020 growth forecast lowered due to the impact from the Covid-19 outbreak, the negative sentiment is likely to continue.

3.(US Tech 100 Index USD5 CFD)



Big Picture – Bearish

Resistance : 7,454    Support : 6,936

One Good Trade Idea

The bearish outlook is the same for US tech index. The global economy is bracing for a surge in US jobless data and there will be a slump in consumer spending. From the weekly chart, after breaking the uptrend line, it is now testing the long term horizontal support at 6.936. For next week, we are likely to see the retest of this support.Traders may prefer to sell below resistance near 7,454.

One Good Trade Idea

The uptrend in EURGBP continues with the breakout of the resistance at 0.9019. For next week, traders can look for a buy signal near this support. The target move is higher towards 0.9499 resistance.





Big Picture – Bearish

Resistance : 1.0777    Support : 1.0324

One Good Trade Idea

Euro fell against the US dollars last week and the bias is still very much bearish. It is likely to continue lower towards parity. However, traders who are short in position, needs to be careful as the selling momentum may slow down towards parity. It is a level of high interest and may bounce up if it touches that 1.000 level. Traders may prefer to sell higher when there is a pullback higher.





Big Picture – Short Term Bearish

Resistance : 1.556    Support : 1.445

One Good Trade Idea

The recent sell off in gold may have found a level of support near 1,445. Volatility remains high with the demand in USD. Short term traders may look for a price action sell signal to short near 1,556 resistance. Alternatively, we can buy as price approaches the uptrend line support near 1,445 for a rebound . Don’t forget to place a stop loss below the trend line near 1,400.
