Starting point was an earlier range (1) that has been tested but got rejected immediately (2). Subsequently, the market went long and finally closed above the previous weeks value area high indicating buyer dominance. However, the previous weeks high and low have not been tested (3) resulting in an inside week (4). Such phenomenons illustrate uncertainty in the market where a decision can be expected within the following week.

Preferring a buyer perspective, the market can break the weeks high and continue to break to last weeks high (5) a sustainable breakout will clearly favour long positions. On the contrary, however, inside weeks may be targets for fake breakouts. Should the market fall back into last weeks range it can be considered a fake breakout with higher probability of falling prices (6). Should the market illustrate weakness right from the beginning the last weeks low can be considered a first short target (7).
