Shoulder head Shoulder in Soybean

The chart pattern in soybean resembles Shoulder head shoulder with a fairly declined volumes to its right side of the shoulder. This pattern can slightly overshoot the text book for the fact that the mid may'12 highs were seen quite eager to get sold off. Blame it partially on the strong dollar strength prevailing at his time and that the trend seems overstretched to its fundamentals as well.

The objective: A break below the neck line (depending on the interpretation) of 1373 cents the trend can be potentially bearish towards 1325 cents.

Any trades possible?

Beware of the fact that the grain market is in its uptrend and soy for some reason lacks the liberty to ease from its rally. So, some move on the down side could provide opportunity, but not the "larger" opportunity.


Volume Divergence in Brent Crude oil

The Brent crude oil bottom of the early 2009 followed a classical way of bottoming out. After having fallen considerable from July 2008 onwards, the trend got sold off big way despite of deep oversold conditions.

Later while ther had been several positive divergent swings formed in the 14-Day RSI the volumes had been quite higher on every swing low.

So, what caused a final bottom?

Probably the last swing low was followed by a "More than usual" decline ( arrow pointed) in the volumes which made the fall less enthusiastic to follow through.
