Market Update 11/9 – Time to Fade CAD?

Since USDCAD is USDCAD, it had to test Friday’s high before reversing lower. In any case, there is no change to the view that a 5th wave lower is underway. I don’t have all of the measurements on the chart because I like to keep it clean but realize that wave 3 is exactly 161.8% of wave 1. If today was the 4th wave high, then wave 5 would equal wave 1 at 1.2184. This is in line with the 5/13 high at 1.2203. Bottom line, I’m looking towards 1.2200ish. There is a high volume level at 1.2459 that is proposed resistance now. Finally, an 8 hour volume reversal triggered today (see futures chart below, which extends back one year).

Market Update 10/19 – USDCAD Bounce Time?

USDCAD has spent 4 days trading around the 61.8% retrace of the rally from the June low. Also, today’s long lower wick and 4 hour volume reversal (see below) suggest that a relief bounce could take hold. With resistance probably not until 1.2490s, I’m willing to trade the long side against today’s low.

Market Update 10/14 – 6 Year High in CADJPY

CADJPY traded to a 6 year high today (highest since December 2015). High 91.00s has been a precise pivot since June 2013 and RSI is in rare territory. The chart below shows instances since late 2014 when RSI has been as high as it is today (above 80). Each instances has been within days of an important price peak. I’m not willing to fade this until I see reversal evidence…but be ready!

Market Update 10/4 – Bigger Kiwi Setup

XLY is the consumer discretionary ETF. This two largest holdings are AMZN (22.9%) and TSLA (13.5%). In other words, this is an important ETF with some big names. Last week, both a 2 week volume reversal and 1 week volume reversal triggered. The 2 week signals are shown in the chart below. The 1 week signals are shown 2 charts down.

Market Update 8/9 – Silver Crashes – What Now?

The silver crash bounced from a median line today. While the action may feel like capitulation, I’m watching for resistance from the line that crosses lows in June and July (red line). That line is about 24.20. Very near term, price could bounce near 23.05 (see below). The 61.8% retrace of the rally from March 2020 is 18.71. Keep that level in mind for major support if reached.

Market Update 7/20 – Reversals in Yen Crosses

Yen crosses reversed higher today. Expanding on the implications from the Nikkei bear trap, GBPJPY tagged the 3/24 low today before reversing higher. Price also held trendline support. I’m constructive towards 150.74-151.31 (former lows).
