Market Update 5/3 – USDJPY Channel Still Nailing Turns

DXY turned sharply higher on Friday but gave back a good portion of those gains today. The rally counts in 5 waves (impulsive) which suggests at least one more leg up while price remains above Friday’s high. 90.79 is proposed support if price slips a bit lower.

Market Update 4/28 – Short Term USDJPY Idea

USDJPY did indeed pull back from 109.00. My near term view is that the drop is a 4th wave within a 5 wave rally from the 4/23 low. Ideal is support is 108.52/55. This is the 38.2% retrace of proposed wave 3 and the 4/20 high.

Market Update 4/14 – Key Level for the USD

I was wrong to think that the USDOLLAR pullback was complete last week but the long cited 11795 level has been reached. This is a decision point…plain and simple. The level is defined by the early February high and median line of the structure that originates at the 2017 high. The drop also channels in a corrective manner. Bottom line, price needs to turn up now in order to remain constructive on a swing basis.

Market Update: March 17

DXY focus is lower in a C wave towards 90.76/89. This zone is defined by the 61.8% retrace of the rally from the February low and where the decline from the March high would consist of 2 equal legs. 2021 VWAP and VWAP from the January low reinforce the level as potential support (see futures chart below).

Market Update 2/9 – Watch this Bitcoin Level!

If I look at Bitcoin as nothing more than a liquid asset and apply a channel to price history then 53k (give or take) is a level to pay attention to. The level is defined by the 75 line of the channel from the January 2015 low. As an aside, the Bitcoin bottom then was 1/15/2014…one day before the SNB let the floor go on EURCHF. I bought BTCUSD that day but then sold in May 2017. Worst exit ever? The fact that I think about that now is instructive from a timing standpoint. Anyway, the 25 line was support (highlighted) from May to October last year. As per median line symmetry, the 75 line is expected resistance…which is 53,000.

Market Update 2/7 – Huge Silver Reserval

DXY tanked on Friday but price continues to trade within the short term bullish fork. Price ended Friday right at the 25 line so an early week bounce is possible. 91.30 is possible resistance now. Ultimately, proposed support is 90.50.

Market Update 2/1 – Bullish USD Head and Shoulders Patterns

DXY is trading right at the neckline from a head and shoulders bottom pattern. The objective from the pattern is 92.80 (magenta line) but the former low at 91.75 is a possible pausing level. Ultimately, I’m looking towards the underside of former channel support. This is near 95 and in line with the March low, former 4th wave high, and 38.2% retrace of the decline from the March high (see weekly chart below).

Market Update: January 26

The drop from Friday’s high in EURUSD is a clean 5 waves. The implication is that price declines below 1.2108 while staying below 1.2190. Consider that the noted 5 wave decline occurred after a perfect corrective channel and a turn lower from resistance (see below) and there is good reason to be bearish against 1.2190.

Market Update: January 21

BTCUSD has turned down sharply following last week’s 2 bar weekly volume reversal. If you want to play in this sandbox, then pay attention to 35000 for resistance and 28000 for the next bounce level. The latter level is a spike low and VWAP from the November low. The former level is defined by VWAP from the high and 2021 VWAP.
