TSX Index candlestick chart analysis

2-Year Candlestick Chart of the TSX Index

What are the key points from the above chart of the TSX?

  • There is the possibility of a double top at 14,300.
  • Major support on the weekly chart is 13,500. Reference the previous chart.
  • I use a two-day time filter and a 2% penetration rule based on the closing prices.
  • 13,500 will become resistance if the TSX closes below 13,500 using the above filters.
  • 13,200 (near the March 7 retracement of 13,250) would then become major support.
  • Using the above filters, a closing price of around 12,900 would confirm a double top.
  • The downside risk would then be around 12,200.

Technical analysis of the TSX Index

TSX Index in consolidation mode
Three year candlestick chart analysis of the tsx index showing support and resistance so you can trade online using these indicators to make your online trading decisions.

3-Year Chart of the TSX Index

Reference last weeks analysis which was also a consolidation story for the TSX Index. This is in stark contrast to the S&P 500 Index and the Nasdaq Composite Index which are in an uptrend.

Also reference the most recent analysis of the TSX  based on the daily candlestick chart which identified the possibility of  a double top.

When trading online, you always deal in probabilities.  And the probability of a downside correction is greater than an upside breakout.  It has been a good run for the TSX  Index.

TSX 3-Year Weekly Candlestick Chart

What are the key points to note on this  chart of the TSX index?

  1. Major resistance on the candlestick chart is 14, 300.
  2. The index could not close above 14,300 on two attempts.
  3. Is this the start of a double top formation on the weekly chart?
  4. Support on the weekly chart for the TSX is 13,500.
  5. Is the index moving into a consolidation pattern?
  6. Notice how the bullish engulfing pattern signaled the start of the uptrend in March, 2009.
  7. Did you board the train in March, 2009?  I was aboard with rest stops along the way.
  8. Candlestick chart formations indicated where you could disembark the train for rest stops.
  9. The bullish piercing pattern in July, 2010  indicated that the train was leaving the station again.
  10. Now, the train is at the station.  When will it leave?  And, in what direction?

Reference the previous chart analysis of the TSX index.
