Chart analysis


The #C-COTTON technical analysis of the price chart in 4-hour timeframe shows #C-COTTON, H4  is rising above the 200-period moving average MA(200) which has leveled off. We believe the bullish momentum will continue after the price breaches above the upper Donchian boundary at 88.17. This level can be used as an entry point for placing a pending order to buy. The stop loss can be placed below 86.29. After placing the pending order the stop loss is to be moved every day to the next fractal low indicator, following Parabolic signals. Thus, we are changing the expected profit/loss ratio to the breakeven point. If the price meets the stop-loss level (86.29) without reaching the order (88.17) we recommend cancelling the order: the market sustains internal changes which were not taken into account.
