By Hector in Trade Ideas on 16 August 2020





Big Picture – Bullish

Resistance : 1,622    Support : 1,475

One Good Trade Idea

The bullish trend in KLCI is still intact even though it has been consolidating between 1,475 – 1,622 since June. It may pullback lower next week as the economy recorded the lowest growth in the second quarter amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Whilst price action remains above the support at 1,475, traders may prefer to look for opportunities to buy with a price action long signal. The target is the break of the resistance at 1,622 and higher.

For next week, price actions may move higher in the early part of the week in anticipation of the ministerial statement on Monday on how the Government will continue its support for workers and businesses amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

One Good Trade Idea

The upward trend remains intact but EURUSD was struggling for the last 2 week to gain momentum and push higher. It is currently consolidating above the 20EMA and traders may prefer to buy if price action pull back lower into the buying zone between the 20-50EMA. Look for a price action buy signal above 1.1422 support.






Big Picture – Bearish

Resistance : 0.9181, 0.9375    Support : 0.9072

One Good Trade Idea

The trend is still bearish as the rising Covid 19 cases in US has caused USD to weaken and traders seeking safe haven assets in the Swiss franc CHF . Adding to the slide is the delay in passing more stimulus. Should USD weakens further, there is a high chance that the 0.9000 critical support be broken in the coming weeks. Traders may look for price action signal to sell below 0.9181 resistance.





Big Picture – Bullish

Resistance : 2,075    Support : 1,817

One Good Trade Idea

After reaching a new high of 2,075 last week, there was a big sell off and profit taking last Tuesday. It managed to find support above the 50EMA. While price actions may continue to drift sideway or lower in the coming weeks, traders may prefer to stay on the long side and look for opportunities to buy. The US-China tensions is likely to remains and the loose monetary policies are likely to weaken the US dollar leading to the US election.
