pending chart 2300

Gap up, lower high major trend reversal, bear breakout of possible triangle top, trending trading range day, final flag, h4

  • Tuesday, September 3, 2013
  • Bar 1 - Gap up, island bottom of daily, bullish seasonal thru 9/5, should test 8/26 high, then more down. Always in long but tail and not big bar so sideways likely. Swing buy or long but better to wait.
  • Bar 2 - Fail, failure breakout, but doji. Swing sell or short but better to wait. Bulls should win for a few days so should test below red line = neckline of 60 minimum or minutes double bottom, but stay above pink line = bottom of gap on daily.

  • Bar 9 - Lower high major trend reversal but only 1 bar up
  • Bar 12 - Wedge 1 7, two bar revresal, but small. Ok swing buy or long but higher probability to wait
  • Bar 17 - Double top 9, possible triangle 1 9, but trading range. Probably trending trading range day. Low probability swing sell or short
  • Bar 18 - 2 bear bars, trading range, sellers at the high of the bar and probably scaling in higher
  • Bar 21 - Possible triangle 9 16, bear channel, swing sell or short. Better to wait for breakout
  • Bar 22 - Strong breakout, more down, probably trending trading range day
  • Bar 23 - Close near low, more down
  • Bar 24 - More down, but sell climax to 60 minute 20 bar exponential moving average so might go sideways
