Forex: EUR/USD Shaking Hands with Possible Trendline Support

Daily Timeframe –

Since pencilling in a bottom at $1.0601 in April of this year, Europe’s single currency has rallied against the US dollar and established clear higher highs and higher lows (an uptrend).

From the EUR/USD’s daily chart, price action recently rejected resistance at $1.0883, formed a moderate correction within the trend, and led the pair to retest a trendline resistance-turned-potential support line taken from the high of $1.1139. Should buyers bid from the current price, this could lead the major pair back to $1.0883 and perhaps take a run at another layer of resistance from $1.0920.

The Pattern Pulse – 23 May 2024, FP MarketsCommodities: Gold Open to Dip-Buying?

Daily Timeframe –

Everyone’s favourite yellow metal (spot gold [XAU/USD]) ended Wednesday at session lows, extending the retracement slide from recent all-time highs of $2,450. This opens the door to possible dip-buying opportunities at the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement ratio at $2,343, a level complemented by a local trendline resistance-turned-potential support extended from the high of $2,431 and an ascending support line, taken from the low of $2,149.

In the event that buyers make a stand at current support, the precious metal could be looking at fresh record highs in the not-so-distant future.

The Pattern Pulse – 23 May 2024, FP MarketsEquities: S&P 500 Offering Potential Bullish Pennant Pattern

Daily Timeframe –

The S&P 500 recently refreshed its all-time high of 5,325 in recent trading and appears poised to chalk up a bullish pennant pattern formation drawn from 5,325 and 5,283.

With the trend clearly still leaning in favour of bulls at the moment, a breakout above the pennant pattern’s upper limit could trigger further outperformance for this market index. However, were a correction to play out, support at 5,261 and a neighbouring decision point area at 5,210-5,240 could be a zone that welcomes dip buyers. Either way, the technicals continue to support buyers for the time being, but for now, at least, it appears to be a waiting game.

The Pattern Pulse – 23 May 2024, FP MarketsCryptocurrency: All-Time Highs in the Crosshairs for ETH/USD

Daily Timeframe –

ETH/USD bulls have made a strong comeback in recent days. Following Monday’s +13.0% advance and Tuesday’s +7.0% push, the major altcoin is within reach of challenging all-time highs of $4,092. Following the break of key resistance at $3,677 (now serving as support) and April’s high of $3,726, the path of least resistance is towards all-time highs.

You will note that price action formed an indecision candle on the retest of $3.677 as support, with buyers seemingly in command as of writing.
