Market Update 3/7 – EURUSD at an Important Trendline

EURUSD has cut through everything that I thought would provide support and price has now reached the line off of the 2017 and 2020 lows. If this doesn’t hold then I guess there is nothing until the March 2020 low at 1.0636. Near term (see below), price has responded to the lower parallel of the fork from the 2/10 high. The important test on the upside (if price bounces of course) is about 1.1060. Finally, daily RSI is below 23. Previous instances over the last 5 years are shown 2 charts down.

Market Update 3/2 – AUDUSD Median Line Trade Setup

AUDUSD broke above the median line today so longs are in play. The top side of the median line is proposed support now (formerly resistance) near .7265. This is also the year and month opening prices. One benefit to trading with median lines are tight stops. That’s especially useful in this instance given the proximity of the January high and 200 day average as possible resistance. Upside focus is .7370 followed by .7420s.

Market Update 3/1 – Silver Breaks out from 13 Month Channel

Silver broke above its 13 month channel today to join gold. The top side of the channel at 24.87 is now support. The objective is the 2021 high and full channel extension at 30.14. Gold support should be 1922/28 now.

Market Update 2/28 – AUDUSD Threatening Breakout

AUDUSD is pressing against the median line again so a drop into the lower parallel probably will not occur. At this point, I’m on alert for ‘median line acceleration’. Strength above .7314 would complete a double bottom with a .7636 target. Proposed near term support now is .7230. RBA is tonight.

Market Update 2/24 – Inflection Point

Today was a classic ‘sell the news’ day with the news being Russia attacking Ukraine. A more accurate term is ‘fade the news’. SPY carved a high volume reversal. We saw one of these at the 1/24 low. Prior to that, you’ve got to go back to 2018.

Market Update 2/16 – AUDUSD Threatens Breakout

AUDUSD is pressing against the trendline from the October high. The center line of the short term bullish fork is also in the vicinity. A break above the trendline opens up the January high at .7314 and possibly the confluence of the upper parallel from the bullish fork and trendline from February 2021 near .7440.

Market Update 2/10 – USD Bounces at Key Trendline

USDOLLAR held the trendline that originates at the September low today. A break of this line is what I’m waiting for to signal ‘all clear’ on the downside for the USD.

Market Update 2/9 – Navigating Near Term USD Levels

EURUSD continues to meander sideways following last week’s rip but that should change with U.S. inflation data tomorrow. I’m wondering if the ‘ideal’ support is 1.1345. This is the top side of the trendline from May and trendline from the May low. It’s also the 38.2% retrace of the rally. A drop to there could complete 3 waves down from last week’s high.

Market Update 2/7 – Major USD ETF Signal

UUP (USD ETF) completed a weekly volume reversal last week! Most signals since inception of the ETF have been identified important turns in the ETF and therefore the USD in general.

Market Update 1/31 – Opposing Monthly and Weekly Reversals

January produced some monthly reversals of note. SPY made a 1 bar monthly volume reversal. Notice that reversals also occurred in June/July 2007 (high) and October 2002 (low). There were failed signals however in 1997. Obviously, monthly signals may not be all that timely. These are ‘big picture’ observations. It’s important to understand in light of weekly bullish reversals in indices last week! These charts are shown below the monthly charts in this post.
