Major Market Ranges for Week of Apr 26: More Breakouts & Reversals
04/24/2020 11:22 am EST
Next week range predictions from Trevor Smith.
Starting Friday, range math favors three-day breakouts in the Japanese yen, S&P500, and crude oil.
Directionally, positive divergences may cause reversal upside trades in the euro and crude, while the S&P 500 may plan downside moves.
Last week’s Crude Oil statement was: “Crude oil’s pivots into the weekend suggest a narrow-range break signal candle may emerge Friday.” While I expected a bullish breakout, I had mentioned that a monthly floor pivot for crude was a negative number. The breakout’s strength caused contango, negative front-month contract pricing, ETF trading halts, and multiple repricing events. Oil prices widened between WTI (land-based crude) and Brent (water-based crude) in a type of market spread related to storage issues.
Six of 10 projected weekly ranges printed as of Thursday afternoon.
