April Headlines: Geopolitics, Trade War, Volatility, Data Privacy. What About Opportunities?

April started with a bang.

The market is showing some considerable signs of increasing volatility, which could be quite sudden some of the times, not to mention surprising.

Over the past few weeks, there’s been a series of events, some of them caused by geopolitics, others caused by trading relations uncertainty, and others caused by technology advancing or security issues.

The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) is clearly showing proof that volatility is back. Are you not entertained?

  • Possible Bullish break-out in process, which could result in a potential Support gained on the descending trend-line previously breached.

All this translates into volatility and wild swings, but what about the charts? What can the charts indicate?
