Opportunities on Radar – Month of May likes Volatility

2 27

The charts and overall technical analysis points towards the possibility that the volatility could be coming back with a bang, just like it did in the beginning of February, when global Indices seriously dipped to unexpected lower grounds.

March was filled with wild swings, with multiple fundamental events and uncertainty, causing complex corrective structures and overall bigger consolidations. These swings were explained previously in our “Surfing The Waves Analysis Performance – NFP Webinar Invitation” video.

April was favorable for the USD, volatility in the green-back translated into a bullish rally which, at this time, is showing the possibility of dying out. We went over this in “The Return Of The Dollar Bulls” & “Is The USD Getting Stronger?”.

May likes Volatility, and just to prove it, there are multiple correlation signs that the market could be preparing for some wild swings, as the corrective patterns seem to be synchronizing for some possible impulses. These technical set-ups were mentioned in the previously posted “USD Bearish View – Corrective Patterns And Analysis Update” video, but also during our live NFP webinar; “Trade Like A Jedi On The NFP”.

What kind of waves could the Market be preparing and what are the opportunities on the radar?

Technical Analysis – Elliott Wave Perspective

The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) spiked in the beginning of the year, letting investors know that complacency period was a thing of the past and that volatility could be shifting towards the “fear” zone. Since then, VIX retraced on the down-side but technically speaking, it could surprise once more due to the possibility of another spike of volatility from the previously breached 13.00 Vibration Levels.

The Dollar Index (DXY) was of course analyzed and updated with multiple articles and videos, as per the links mentioned above.

It seems that the Bullish Rally could be completing, and according to the current wave count, the extension might be showing signs of weakness.
