While the major news outlets print more baseless Trump-related headlines to fill print, we’ll focus on trading opportunities around quality technical levels. The bottom line is that markets have no idea what his yet to be implemented policies are going to mean for the economy and with uncertainty comes trading opportunity!
I had this channel already drawn onto the daily starting as far back as twelve months ago in 2015.
No matter how many times I see it, I still always find it interesting how the market continues to respect these sorts of support/resistance levels on both sides even if the original pattern has broken or played out.
Zooming into the hourly and for me, there’s something about that last bullish H1 candle. It’s the last push up into higher time frame resistance and I’ll be looking to use the edges of it as an area to manage risk around when price finally breaks out.
My bias as always is to look to fade the higher time frame level. If it does hold here, selling any hourly pullbacks would be the preferred plan of attack.
