In this article, I am going to dissect a paramount concept in trading. Independent of the asset you are trading, most traders should care about it. I am referring to the selection of high quality support/resistance. This is my go-to guide to determine how to pick the SR areas of most significance where decisions will be made. Why static horizontal areas are so important? The reason lies in the ability we all have as traders to easily eyeball where these areas are located in the chart. This makes such horizontal areas the most universal form of reference for participants to use. It also makes the selection of these ... (full story)

The Business Outlook Survey indicator moved up again, signalling further improvement in business sentiment. chart Business confidence across all regions has strengthened. Many firms consider the impacts of the pandemic on their activities to be behind them. Firms’ outlooks for domestic and foreign demand have improved from low levels a year ago, as most businesses are no longer preoccupied with pandemic-related uncertainty. Still, some businesses tied to highâ€‘contact services continue to report weakness in demand. Nearly twoâ€‘thirds of firms indicated their sales have reached or exceeded pre-pandemic levels—an increase from the winter survey and a sign that the recovery is broadening further (Chart 2). Half of businesses reported that the second wave of containment measures and lockdowns had a smaller or no adverse impact on their sales compared with the first wave. Firms noted that this is largely because they themselves—and their customers—have adapted to the evolving crisis. For example, businesses now have greater capacity for more online sales, staff are set up and familiar with remote work, and cleaning and physical distancing protocols are in place. With uncertainty having receded and vaccination rollouts continuing, firms’ indicators of future sales have strengthened again (Chart 3). For many businesses, demand from domestic and foreign customers—particularly from the United States—has improved from a year ago. Firms’ sales outlooks are also supported by low interest rates and a shift in consumer preferences to products and services that make it easier for Canadians to stay at home and reduce contact with others.
