The chart below was also posted on social media StockTwits/Twitter @AidanFX July 29 2020 showing that a bullish Cup & Handle pattern was clearly visible on the 4 hour chart calling for a possible move higher. The bullish pattern triggers BUYS when price breaks above the handle of the cup. The market pattern formed during an uptrend, stayed above the 200 moving average and the base formed on the top half of the uptrend move. I advised traders to watch for price to break above the handle and expect a rally higher when it does.
