Cotton Chart Analysis
Cotton Technical Analysis
On the daily timeframe, COTTON: D1 broke through the uptrend support line and went down from the triangle. A price gap has been formed on the daily chart. A number of technical analysis indicators have generated signals for further decline. We do not rule out a bearish movement if COTTON: D1 falls below the last low: 110. This level can be used as an entry point. The initial risk limitation is possible above the maximum since July 2011, the last upper fractal, the upper Bollinger line and the Parabolic signal: 120. After opening a pending order, move the stop following the Bollinger and Parabolic signals to the next fractal maximum. Thus, we change the potential profit/loss ratio in our favor. The most cautious traders, after making a deal, can go to the four-hour chart and set a stop-loss, moving it in the direction of movement. If the price overcomes the stop level (120) without activating the order (110), it is recommended to delete the order: there are internal changes in the market that were not taken into account.
