Brooks Price Action - 05-06-2013 Monday

pending chart 2051

Weak, broad channel bull. Mostly trading range day

  • Monday, May 6, 2013
  • Bar 1 - Yesterday had big gap breakout, then small trading range day, and expanding triangle bottom. Probably trading range day today. Bull bar, top of trading range, sellers above or sell above
  • Bar 6 - Higher low major trend reversal, or, but tight trading range so lp and swing or swing and maybe part scalp
  • Bar 8 - Close at 7 high but still breakout and probably always in long
  • Bar 14 - Double top 43, lower high major trend reversal, wedge 76 wedge, but 7 consecutive bull bodies so more likely buyers below or buy below and more sideways. Lp sell or short so swing or wait
  • Bar 17 - Bear breakout but still always in long unless strong follow through and breakout below 6. 4 consecutive bear bars so sellers above or sell above. Sideways likely
  • Bar 20 - Doji two inside bars, 6 consecutive bear bars so need second entry buy. Near bottom of trading range so better to not sellers above or sell above or below and wait for breakout
  • Bar 24 - Breakout pullback sell or short, head and shoulders top 2 14, but bottom of trading range. Wait for breakout up and or down, or for second entry buy near 6 or 18 low
  • Bar 26 - Double bottom 18, tri6 18, bottom half of trading range day. Ok swing and maybe part scalp
  • Bar 28 - Follow through from breakout above 24 right shoulder. Should test 14 high
  • Bar 34 - Wedge 24 30, fail, failure breakout, but tight channel and too many bull bodies. Sideways more likely. Buyers below or buy below
  • Bar 38 - Bull outside bar surrounded by inside bars but just above moving average. More sideways likely
