Daily, in more detail this resistance can be seen around 8,200-8,500. In fact failure to get above 8,500, led into a move down which accelerated dropping through 8,000 support, and finding volatile support above 6000. Volatility can be seen as a potential to move, but does not necessarily express itself in a directional way. The question can be: what can generate volatility to directionality, is it related to an apparent reduction in longer term volatility, at least volatility which results in lower resistance levels.

2hr, the move down can be seen with 6,100 providing a way to provide support (again).

30min, support around 6150 can be seen and pushes below this towards 6100.

Daily, support around 112 can be seen which dropped to lower support below 111 (which is resting on previous resistance). So resistance appearing lower is helping to shape the longer term move. But can it find a way to reshape.

2hr, volatility can be seen as it gets towards 110.

30min, the relative intensity of this volatility can be seen, can it alter this move.

Weekly, it can be seen that the pair has tested below 1.15. Can this higher level of the container hold. The problem is the capacity to breach 1.2. This holds out the idea of a range back up there, but how firm is this concept versus the lower regions of the container to move in. It may depend on the extent to which it is seen as possible to get to 1.2.

Silver and USD/CHF: 23rd June 2018

Spot Silver (XAG/USD) on monthly candlestick charts can be seen having found relatively low volatility. Going back in time it can be seen that it is at one of the support levels from before its strong rise up (then there was more volatility), as the metal had been climbing.

Weekly, some volatility can be seen in a horizontal move between 16 support and 17.50 resistance. However relatively speaking this move can be seen as a reduction in volatility.

Daily, bursts movement can be seen in among more constrained moves, with price rejections top and bottom.

2hr, Silver can be seen dropping down from an attempt towards 17.50, then petering off from this move. So volatility/volatility reduction can be seen.

30min, the metal can be seen rising up from around 16.20 towards 16.50.

USD/CHF:

Monthly, the pair can be seen as having found parity again. Can it find a higher low now.

Weekly, this move can be seen as being slightly higher than the last move to parity, with some support evident around .98. Is parity becoming resistance.

Daily, this support resistance can be seen more clearly (one reason for doing multi-time frame analysis). Can it maintain support around .98, to tackle parity or does it need to go deeper.

30min, the pair can be seen dropping to .99, then moving more gently down .98.

5min, support around .9875 can be seen.

Daily, higher support can be seen rising into 10,000 resistance then moving back down, and dropping it to lower support at 6000.

2hr, the strong drop can be seen in more detail from 7600 ending up below 6200. This drop can be seen enabling a move below support around 6500. 6800 held for a while, until it more decisively dropped below, with some support on 6200, and a dip below to nearer 6000.

30min, this can be seen as some support around 6100, so it has not yet entered 6000 itself. From here it recovered somewhat, attempting to hold onto support on former resistance. So the question is, with this current reduced volatility (on a longer term view), where can it go, can it breach that strong support, or can it find renewed momentum from that support.

USD/JPY:

Weekly, it can be seen that the pair has climbed back to 110 and has turned more horizontal. 100 can be seen as halfway between its rise from 100 to 120 in 2014.

30min, the pair can be seen hitting into 110.90 with support around 110.50.

5min, the pair can be seen with resistance below 110.70. Thus the pair is long term, in a support region defined by its former rise, which is containing it currently, effectively reducing volatility. So can it find a directional move from this.

Weekly, the pair can be seen getting to 1.2 and slightly above, then dropping back to find find support around 1.15 (longer term support). So the effort to get to this important value level, which has defined it since 2015, pushed it back but to a support level.

Daily, the short movement over 1.2 can be seen, then the more gradual slope down, then the strong move downwards to bounce above 1.1350 and get to 1.15.

2hr, the pair can be seen caught in a horizontal move between (approximately) 1.1650 and 1.1550.

On Weekly candlestick charts, it can be seen that Bitcoin (BTC/USD) found a lower resistance around 10,000 (lower than its previous resistance around 12,000). It could be asked, will it maintain its support region(s), allowing it to evidence a continuing reduction in range of movement.

Daily, this reduction in movement can be seen, with a base around 6000, which it tested (and went a bit below). So in a reduction in volatility, so far BTC/USD has found support levels to move around.

On monthly candlestick charts it can be seen that on its way up, at the end of 2010, Spot Gold (XAU/USD) retraced to find support around 1300. This value is providing some support now, in a different landscape. Gold's move down was stopped above 1050, by which time it had become more gradual. Form here it moved up, to find 1400 resistance, moved back, found a higher low, then found 1400 resistance again. Can it maintain higher support, whether on 1300 or below.

Weekly resistance can be seen around 1375. This has twice pushed it back down since March 2016. It is currently in the same state, but with so far former support on 1300, making for a horizontal move.

Daily, the affect of this support can be seen. It has currently turned up its most directional move down.

5min, lowering high can be seen on this support.

Silver and USD/CHF: 28th April 2018

On weekly candlestick charts Silver (XAG/USD) can be seen with a base above 16 and lowering highs. The highs are defined by resistance around 18.50, 18, 17.50 and now 17 (on this timeframe).

Moving to monthly charts, it can be seen that Silver is in a pattern following its attempts to move beyond 20/21, of reduction in range of movement. So can a move emerge from this. Does it need increased volatility before directionality emerges - and what patterns of volatility.

Daily, volatile movements can be seen as the metal holds a horizontal position, along with bursts of movements which retrace back.

2hr, a volatility pattern can be seen, as it moved up from around 16.45, had a strong burst upwards, to fail below 17.40, then come all the way back down.

30min, a volatile move afterwards, with a downward direction can be seen. Thus in the reduced volatility even on longer term time frames, volatility can be seen on shorter term time frames: patterns of strong moves up which come down and irregular horizontal moves.

USD/CHF:

Monthly, the pair can be seen coming back up to resistance now established around parity.

Weekly, that strong move up, from a relative low can be seen.

Daily, the retracements disappearing as it got above .9560 are evident.

Bitcoin and USD/JPY: 13th April 2018

On daily candlestick charts, Bitcoin (BTC/USD) can be seen as having found resistance below 1200 once more. This resistance can be seen as having been established following the drop in mid January. Following a double top, it was allowed to move down, finding support (again) above 6000. That support held. From here it is attempting a move back up to 9000. 9000 itself delineates a layer of support, related to its strong move upwards last year.

4hr, support around 6500 can be seen, which led into a move upwards, which got it back into 8000.

30min, a steady move up can be seen (with some downward selling pressure), which found some power as it established itself within 8000. The importance of 8000, can be seen as relative to the important of 9000 as a support level. However resistance around 12000 has already enabled a breaching of 9000 support a number of times (i.e. it can't move up, so it moves down until it hits support). So which way forward ? It need to overcome resistance or support, in a sustained manner.

USD/JPY:

On monthly candlestick charts, USD/JPY can be seen rising and finding longer term resistance around 125, from here it fell back and found support around 100. It moved up to find a lower high, and has moved back down. Can it maintain higher lows.

2hr, rising lows can be seen and rising highs, but in a structure made more complex and horizontal, by resistance above.

30min a more directional move can be seen.

5min, a push to 107.85 can be seen reversing back down to bounce around 107.50.

Oil and EUR/CHF: 13th April 2018

On monthly candlestick charts, US Oil can be seen moving up from 42. It encountered resistance around 66, fell back to 58, then has moved up with retracements, then power to get into 67. This move can be seen as powered by geo-political tension. In fact the geo-politcal tension has effectively helped Oil overcome a resistance level. But can this kind of support keep it above. Can the charting logic of turning resistance into support come into play, irrespective of geo-political events.

Daily, the power of the move from 62 can be seen, which got it to higher levels.

2hr, Oil can be seen encountering resistance around 67.5, which it is attempting to push into, with volatility - thus the desire to move up is still there.

30min, a move finding support and pushes up, with turns back can be seen.

EUR/CHF:

Monthly, the pair can be seen getting getting to close to 1.7, which marks the level, from where it dropped down.

Weekly, the pair can be seen moving up with a persistent move with some volatility as it got to 1.18, where it retraced, to find support around 1.15, then moved to a higher high. The anatomy of a full recovery in progress.

Daily, the pair can be seen failing around 1.1825, then moving back to a volatile move which turned it up again, to overcome that high.

2hr, resistance around 1.18 can be seen moving the pair down to an extent, but it found directional power again, to encounter resitance below 1.19.

30min, the resistance can be seen making the move horizontal, but with lows moving upwards, but a more complex shape of move rejection on the upside.

Gold and CHF/JPY: 7th April 2018

On monthly candlestick charts, Spot Gold (XAU/USD) is again attempting to move beyond resistance around 1400.

Weekly, it can be seen that Gold has got slightly lower than its move a year ago, so far. The resistance has turned the move more horizonatal, but it is presently finding support on past resistance, on 1300.

Daily, a directional move up from around 1240 can be seen, which got it above 1300, where it turned horizontal and somewhat volatile, but holding support above 1300, and finding resistance around 1350. Thus this market is currently constrained within value levels, attempting to move up through longer term resistance.

2hr, the metal can be seen finding a lower high, and support around 1320.

30min, a move off this support can be seen.

CHF/JPY:

On monthly charts, CHF/JPY can be seen on lower support around 110.

Weekly, lower support can be seen around 108. However a move up from here, helped establish support on 110.

Daily, the move down from around 118.50 can be seen, a move which turned more horizontal as it got to 110.50. Can the pair recover here.

2hr, the pair can be seen with support and some lowering highs, which have levelled out somewhat.

30min, a horizontally inclined though upwards move can be seen, attempting to get into 112.

Silver and USD/CHF: 31st March 2018

Looked at on a long term view, on monthly candlestick charts, Spot Silver (XAG/USD) can be seen as having an extended horizontal move in the region from where it began its great rise upwards in the Summer of 2010. This move allowed a climb above 20, which was a region of resistance before the 2010 rise and support on its way down. However, from 20 it has fallen to a lower level, maintained support above 15, but with gradually lowering highs.

Weekly, an anatomy of the move to 20 can be seen with a strong surge upwards, then relatively intense volatility, leading into drops down with some reaction upwards. This developed into a pattern with sharp drops, with strong rises, but the drops producing lowering highs. So is volatility reducing now. Has the move to 20 and its effects played out - can support above 15 hold.

Daily, a move to 15.60 can be seen, which reversed strongly, with a reactive push at the beginning. This brought it back up into the latter half of 17, where it became volatile and moved lower, but keeping above 16.

2hr, an attempt to get near 17 can be seen, with a drop back down to around 16.20.

30min, an attempt to move back up off this support can be seen.

USD/CHF:

On monthly, USD/CHF can be seen firstly with resistance from parity, then at the end of 2014 a candle which pushed it above parity (and pulled it well below). This candle though delineated a region for it to move above parity, and it found support on previous resistance areas (below parity). However it has since dropped below this support, but found possible support on previous support levels. Will it encounter lower resistance now.

Weekly, a strong drop below 0.95 can be seen, which bounced at 0.92.

Daily, this move can be seen levelling out to some extent, encountering some resistance around 0.96.

2hr, support around 0.9430 can be seen, with resitance below 0.96. Thus it is stuck or positioned to some extent in a generic value level defined around 0.95.

30min, volatility can be seen as it moves high in 0.95, and support as it moves lower.

On a 5min view, volatility can be seen below 0.9550, towards Friday close.

Bitcoin and USD/JPY: 24th March 2018

On daily candlestick charts, it can be seen that Bitcoin (BTC/USD) found resistance around 12,000 and dropped down to find support so far around 8000.

2hr, Bitcoin can be seen finding a lower high as it found resistance around 9000, leading into a move down, which is finding support from the presence of 8000 below, above 8200. Can it maintain relatively higher support above 8000.

30min, support around 8250 can be seen, and attempts to get beyond 8700.

Thus Bitcoin is finding support on 8000, which provided initially some resistance in 2017. It has already broken this support, to reach 6000 (from where the power of its move up was perhaps igniting, viewed on candlesticks). It moved up from here, into a landscape defined thus far by 8000 and resistance above.

USD/JPY:

Monthly, USD/JPY can be seen dropping below 107.50 and 105, with longer term support below, down to 100.

Weekly, the pair can be seen dropping through its rise in 2016, as part of a gradual downward move, which has accelerated somewhat.

Daily, the pair can be seen finding some support around 105, then moving below.

2hr, support can be seen around 104.60.

30min, resistance around 105 can be seen.

5min, the pair can be seen finding lower resistance just above 105.

Thus the pair has moved down, retracing though its move upwards, will longer term support below break its fall and change directionality or its move structure.

Oil and EUR/CHF: 17th March 2018

On weekly candlestick charts, US Oil can be seen dropping, following a move above 66, and bouncing on 58 to find a lower high around 64. On this time frame, a trend can be seen from 42 to 66, with a volatile but directional beginning, structured retracement then a steadier rise, until is ended at 66.

Going into more detail on daily, 66 can be seen flattening the move, introducing down candles, and lowering highs, which led into a strong move down, recovery from 58, then a lower high and a more horizontal move.

2hr, 60 can be seen establishing a floor and 62 a ceiling, creating the horizontal container, with reduced volatility, so far.

30min the calmness of the move can be seen between 61 and 61.50.

EUR/CHF:

On monthly, this pair can be seen finding resistance below 1.2, the value from which it fell in 1/15.

2hr, the move very close to the big figure can be seen, which produced a reaction upwards, getting it to a lower high, from where it moved back down, so far holding at a higher resistance level.

30min, a bounce at the resistance level can be seen.

Going to weekly, it can be seen that relative to the most recent high, it is at a slightly lower high. Can big figure support hold and help sustain it at higher support levels.

CHF/JPY:

Weekly, 119 can be seen holding it down, producing a double top, which is sent it down to lower levels.

Daily, a reaction can be seen as it got to 110.50.

2hr, this reaction can be seen hitting off 112.70.

30min, the pair can be seen moving back down to 112.20.

5min, some evening out can be seen on this potential support.

Silver and USD/CHF: 3rd March 2018

USD/CHF:

Monthly, USD/CHF can be seen on support following a lower high which got it to parity.

2hr, this can be seen in more detail, with some support around .9350. Can this hold.

30min, some resistance below .9400 can be seen.

5min, support above .9350 and resistance below .94 (below .9390) is apparent.

Bitcoin and USD/JPY: 24th February 2018

Examining BTC/USD daily candlestick chart, it can be seen Bitcoin reversed its move down just below 6000 (on 5900), then moved upwards, until hitting 12,000 resistance. This has brought it back to an earlier support level around 10,000. The low mirrored the move in November 2017, when it retraced, before climbing to 8000, then beginning its surge. So this pattern resulted in a place to bounce from its move down from around 19,000. The moves of Bitcoin has resulted in layers of potential support and resistance being created quickly, across a wide range of values (in this case 6000-19,000). How persistent are these.

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) and USD/JPY: 27th January 2018

Please Note: Bitcoin is highly volatile. Looking at its weekly candlestick chart, it can be seen that Bitcoin's rise was reversed as it approached 20,000. This resulted in a sharp volatile fall which reversed up when it hit support near 10,000. From here it moved up to a lower high and the dropped down again to below this support, and below 10,000.

Within the volatility a pattern like a trend end can be seen. But does this imply consolidation near support, or can bitcoin confound expectations and recover more rapidly. To get below it has to jump the gap down, from where it began its strong move upwards to 20,000.

Daily, the volatility can be seen in more detail. It can also be seen that its rise destabilised and levelled as it got to 17,000, but it maintained support above 15000 to soar upwards towards 20,000. But this move was its undoing as the force of 20,000 reversed it back down towards 10,000. In its recovery, it found 17,000 resistance again, but maintained support around 13,000, until it dropped sharply through it lower than its earlier support (or bounce) to find support now on 10,000 (though it has gone lower).

If this is a trend end (and indeed if the move up was a trend), then it is a particularly volatile one. Essentially bitcoin is bouncing off significant valuation levels and becoming unstable, unable to find the power to move up. That is, the power up reversed to drops down.

4hr, support around 10,000 can be seen, and the drop below towards 9000. This pair is volatile and impulsive, but it has respected value levels. It can be seen that resistance is around 12000 and support around 10,000, with resistance now lower.

30min, resistance below 12000 can be seen and support just above 10,000.

Going up to hourly, 9000 can be seen as the place it jumped to, to begin its strong rise, with a base on 8000.

USD/JPY:

Monthly this pair can be seen failing around 125, finding support around 100, rising to a lower high below 120, moving down, but supported around 107/108.

Weekly, resistance can now be seen around 115 and support around 107.50.

4hr, the downward move can be seen which bounced around 108.50.

30min, the pair can be seen finding a lower low below this value.

5min, support around 108.30 can be seen and a strong move upwards to get above 109, which petered out towards close. So can it energize itself from lower support.
