EURUSD Daily Chart
Intraday Engulfing Bars
This is a market we have been discussing quite a bit of late because it has been stuck inside a tight box range.
After pushing off the support lows with a large rejection, price this week made its way into the range high resistance.
Previously price attempted to snap and breakout higher through this level, only to false break and slam back lower.
Whilst the range and box holds, we must trade what we see and the major levels in front of us.
This week we saw another re-test and intraday rejection of the major daily resistance with price forming Bearish Engulfing Bars = BEEB’s on both the 4 hour and 1 hour time frames.
Price has since stabilized and formed an inside bar on the daily chart and the resistance remains a large watch for price potentially breaking the range.

CADJPY Daily Chart
Test Long-term Resistance
Since forming a huge pin bar reversal on the daily chart down at the extreme lows, price has been moving aggressively higher.
As the zoomed out daily chart shows below; price has now moved into a longer term price flip level that in the past has been respected as both support and resistance.
Whilst the bulls have been in full control of this market and have shown no signs of giving over control, no market moves either straight higher or lower.
If price can pullback lower and into a value area of support, then there could be potential to trade inline with the strong momentum higher.
The 4 hour chart below shows the old resistance that could potentially hold as new support should price make a quick rotation lower.

EURJPY Daily Chart
Bullish Engulfing Bar Breaks Higher
After making a sharp move higher at the start of the new year price action had stalled by the daily resistance level.
As we look at the daily chart now we can see that price has formed a bullish engulfing bar = BUEB that is closing above this resistance level.
If price breaks the high of this engulfing bar and continues its move, we could see a quick break into the overhead resistance where bearish traders could look for high probability short trade setups.
GOLD Daily Chart
Price Continues With Trend
This is a market has been doing a heck of a lot over the past few weeks and months. Since looking for price to make a reversal down at the lows and watching the new trend higher closely, we can see that price is now in full force higher.
Price was having a real struggle to break the high or low of the engulfing bar on the daily chart (marked in chart below). Since then, price moved to the low of the engulfing bar, found support and continued with the next leg in the trend higher.
Price as I write this is testing a long-term resistance level. If this gives way we could see price make its ways to the major highs of 2018.
