The problem now is, there are conflicting technicals at work, e.g. we have the Stochastics looking rather messy, with the %K and %D almost crossing over each other twice in a matter of a couple of bars – this often indicates choppy price action, especially when corroborated with further inconsistencies between other major technical indicators, such as the Parabolic SAR dots above the candles, whilst the Awesome Oscillator appear bullish, hence I’m not optimistic about a clear direction being established in the immediate future.
