Market Update: December 8

“Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.” That famous prose from The Night Before Christmas also applies to the FX market. EURUSD is likely waiting for ECB on Thursday so Wednesday might be another snoozer. In any case, price is sitting on the center line from the channel off of the November low. Price has bounced from this line the last two days so a break would indicate a near term behavior change. If that happens, then initial downside focus is 1.2040 and the lower parallel, which is about 1.1985 on Wednesday.

GBPUSD is following through on Friday’s reversal. As noted yesterday, this bounce presents a short opportunity. Ideal resistance is about 1.3440 (12/1 and 12/2 highs and underside of the median line). Initial downside focus is the line off of the September and November lows near 1.3030.

Interestingly, a daily volume reversal triggered on Friday from a 2 year high in EURUSD. There have only been 4 instances of this happening since inception of the euro (see chart below). If a top is in place at Friday’s high, then impulsive weakness likely extends towards 1.2040 before a bounce. That bounce would present the opportunity to short.

Market Update: December 3

Silver has been trading within a downward sloping channel since the August high. The 11/30 low was right at VWAP from the March low (see SLV chart below), so bullish risk is against Monday’s low. Near term, watch for resistance near 25.07/56. Eventually, focus will be on identifying a higher low against Monday’s low.

Gold is one of the only things I’ve gotten right recently. Watch for resistance and a reaction near 1849. If price pulls back from there then I’d keep 1800 in mind for support and a higher low against the 11/30 low.

Market Update: December 1

Copper is trading at its best level since March 2013 and has rallied 7 of the last 8 months. Be aware of the 61.8% retrace of the decline from the 2011 high at 3.6130 for possible resistance. Considering that ‘everything’ is going up against the USD, this level could prove important from a multi-asset perspective.

Market Update 11/30/2020 – USD Reversal!

USDOLLAR reversed higher today after undercutting the September low. Importantly, price reversed at the median line…just as it did in September. Divergence with RSI attends the low, as it often does at important turns. Today was also a bullish engulfing pattern. This occurs when price opens below the prior close and closes above the prior open.

Right on cue. Bitcoin plunged last week before bouncing back. This is the 2nd weekly volume reversal in the last 3 years. The other one was in June 2019. Watch for resistance from daily reversal resistance at 18732

Market Update: November 24

There is a massive parallel in the Dow at about 30900 that is worth noting. The line crosses the 2007 and 2018 highs and high from early this year. The line equidistant from the median line (concept symmetry) was support in March. These parallels are based on the line that connects the 1932 and 1982 lows (see monthly chart below).
