Three-Year Weekly Chart for the TSX Index

We may have a bottom in the recent sell-off but the intermediate trend is still down. Cash is king in this market.

Reference the previous analysis of the TSX Index for the downside risk if the index cannot hold the 12,000 and 11,500 support levels.

TSX Index Three-Year Weekly Chart

The intermediate trend and the near-term trend are both down in the above candlestick chart.

Reference the most recent weekly chart of the TSX Index for September 23, 2011. The TSX Index did not hold the 12,000 support level. The 12,000 level is now resistance on the current chart. The reversal of roles from support to resistance or resistance to support is an important concept in technical analysis.

BCE Six-Month Daily Candlestick Chart Analysis

Updated BCE chart analysis published August 3, 2012

Some key points from the above daily chart are:

  • A bullish shaven head (closes on the high) candlestick has closed above resistance of $36.75.
  • The near-term trend is up as indicated by the two bullish candlesticks.
  • On Balance Volume (OBV) is confirming the near-term uptrend.
  • The MACD is confirming the near-term uptrend.
  • Volume is ok but a little light for the two bullish candlesticks.

I use the above analysis as one of the inputs for a derivative trading strategy. Derivatives will not be reviewed in this post.

Reference the previous analysis of BCE based on the weekly chart.

BCE  will release quarterly results on Thursday, May 12, 2011.  It is important to monitor the reaction on the chart to these results.

Update May 12, 2011:  Here are the results.  Now you have to monitor the reaction on the charts.
