Technical Analysis

Chevron

Oil is poised to continue climbing with mishaps constraining supply in different areas. Texas production is frozen literally and figuratively, and the explosion involving 100 fuel tankers happened on the border of Afghanistan & Iran. These incidents have restricted supply at least in the short term.

The price gapped up on the news, and could push to new highs after filling some of the gap.

AUD/NZD

The pair has shown a Dragon Fly signal indicating that the upward trend will continue.

DAX

The German index has shown strength in its resistance level and the Three Outside Down formation indicates strength in the downtrend.
