Angela, how do technical signals hold up in such volatile markets?
Day to day movements won’t alter the trend after a signal is generated i.e Just as there is very specific criteria that needs to met to generate a technical signal, very specific criteria needs to be me to invalidate a signal. In the case of brent, a downside break of a key support level would be required to negate the current buy signal.
