Market Update 6/29 – Long Term Views

NZDUSD went slightly through the median line (red line) but that line remains proposed resistance near .7020. Downside focus is the long held .6800 level (2 equal legs are at .6795).

Market Update 6/28 – Crude Oil Reaches Major Resistance

Crude has reached the line that extends off of the 2008, 2013, and 2014 highs. HUGE LEVEL! Price reversed sharply lower today (outside bearish day in fact) and I think it’s worth taking a bearish stance against the high.

Market Update 6/23 – USD Reaches Support

USDCAD nailed support and reversed higher today. Time to be bullish again! Ironically, less words are required when the market adheres to one’s analytical method. ‘Feel the flow’…it’s working. Upside focus is open for now.

Market Update 6/22 – BTCUSD Reversal and USD FX Nearing Support

BTCUSD reversed higher today from the year open price of 29007. The reversal was accompanied by high volume (J Spike Volume). This is the second such signal since 2018 (note the December 2018 signal which is circled). Given the reversal from the month open, I’m bullish against today’s low. 42000-44000 is proposed resistance again.

Market Update 6/21 – Tracking USD Support Slightly Lower

GBPUSD turned up prior to the proposed 1.3740 but 1.4000 remains in line for resistance. Besides being ‘clean’ horizontal resistance, the level is also defined by the 25 line of the Schiff fork from the March 2020 low. This line was support in December and April…so watch for support to turn into resistance.

Market Update 6/17 – Yen about to Take Over?

It was pure risk-off in FX today as Yen was the only major that strengthened against the USD. I ‘like’ downside in Yen crosses generally, especially given the volume reversal today (see futures chart below…bullish Yen reversals since 2014 are highlighted). Price action from the April low takes the form of a wedge. The lower wedge barrier is about 109.50. The high volume level from FOMC is now proposed resistance at 110.50.

Market Update 6/16 – USD Time

Today’s move in USDOLLAR proves us correct in the assertion that action since the beginning of the year is a bullish base. The top side of the median line is now support near 11767. A pullback is possible from the center line of the channel from the yearly low. That line is near 11848. Strategically, either wait for a pullback to 11767 or a break above 11848 (median line) and then look to buy a pullback into 11848 (or so).

Market Update 6/15 – Copper Breakdown

Copper broke today and the first level of interest on the downside is the 23.6% retrace of the rally from March 2020 at 4.20. This level coincides with resistance from this March. Former support at 4.4440 (also the 50 day average) is now proposed resistance.

Market Update 6/14 – BTCUSD Nearing Resistance

BTCUSD is still playing out in perfect Elliott form as price nears the noted zone of 42000-44000. The rally would consist of 2 equal legs at 42451 and the 38.2% retrace is 43963 (don’t forget about last week’s observation regarding 38.2% retraces in BTCUSD after plunges from record highs). Bottom line, we’re looking for the next high soon.

Market Update 6/10 – USDJPY about to Break Down?

109.20 is the breakdown level in USDJPY now but there is a well-defined bearish fork in place and today’s high at 109.80 is at a well-defined horizontal level. As such, I’m bearish against today’s high and looking towards 108.34 initially.
