Important developments in the two major themes driving global markets mean the game is changing. Chief market strategist Michael McCarthy looks at the early indications of new emerging trends.
Lots of nice breakouts today! Cheers, Colin Asia Pacific Indices Australia 200 is breaking out of a downtrend today, clearing 5,100 and driving on into the 5,220 to 5,245 zone where it is testing Fibonacci and channel resistance.

So what has this got to do with trading I hear you ask? Lots, I tell you lots! The whole reason technical traders use charts […]
