Bullish shaven head candlestick: A 6.1% move the week of June 27
A short-term bounce and back to a lateral trading range? Or the start of a new uptrend?
The tall bullish shaven head candlestick is a graphical representation of the major move of 6.1% for the week of June 27, 2011: it doesn’t get much better than this for a weekly gain in a major index. The NASDAQ is in a good position for a test of major resistance of 2,880. A convincing two-day close of around 2,940, would indicate an intermediate target of 3,160.
