G20 Summit, FOMC & OPEC vs. Charts & Technical Analysis

0 258

Turning Points, Waves & Patterns

G20 Summit took place this weekend, and the outcome of the discussions held by the group of twenty finance ministers could trigger an increase in volatility. This would affect multiple sectors, as the FX Pairs and Precious Metals seem to be located at crossroads. Energy and Indices sectors have been having difficulties reinstating fresh bullish trends, with bearish sentiment hovering around them.

 

FED Chair Jerome Powell managed to tone down the greenback due to dovishness in his speech, and this caused immediate bullish reactions in EUR/USD and Gold.

 

Crude Oil has been continuously decreasing in in value, with West Texas Intermediate losing approx. $27 in value during the past two months. The OPEC meeting is awaited with high interest and an agreement for the production could dictate a new trend.

 

Indices are once again in focus, as important trend-lines are being retested in an attempt to break-out of bearish territory. US Indices would need to continue the bullish sequences in an impulsive manner and clear the waters before a bullish trend would be in play.
