Market Update 5/10 – GBP Crosses Reach Important Levels

GBPUSD has soared over the last 2 trading days. Today’s break above the well-defined 1.4000 could propel price on its next leg up within the long term bull move but there is consideration for resistance at the current level. Daily reversal resistance is 1.4140 (2/24 close) and the underside of the trendline from the March 2020 low is slightly higher (red line). Let’s see what happens over the next few days.

Market Update 4/20 – Risk Reversing

AUDUSD reversed sharply lower today after coming within pips of the 61.8% retrace of the drop from the February high and early January high. Near term downside focus is .7620. Proposed resistance is .7750.

Market Update 4/19 – USD Dumps – What Now?

The sharp USD drop on Monday makes me neutral at best for now. I had wanted to see USDOLLAR hold the median line from the multiyear structure in order to stay constructive (see below). That said, DXY has reached VWAP from the January low and USDOLLAR has reached the 3/18 low. The 61.8% retrace for USDOLLAR is slightly lower at 11705. Keep an eye on these levels for possible support.

Market Update 4/6 – GBPJPY Top?

GBPJPY topped just before 153.85 (high was 153.41). The cross made a J-Spike in the process. The drop is impulsive in nature and the proposed resistance zone is 152.30/70. The downside level of interest is the 3/24 low at 148.53.

Market Update 4/1 – The Copper/Gold Ratio and Inflation Trends

The copper/gold ratio is churning at 8 year trendline resistance. A pullback/consolidation of gains over the last year (the ratio bottomed in April 2020) ‘makes sense’ from this level. This is an important ratio to watch for clues on interest rates (Gundlach often references this ratio) and trends in inflationary/deflationary assets (notice the deflationary crash into the 2009 low and recent inflationary rally for example). I prefer to look at the 30 year bond rate rather than the 10 year note because the long end is more indicative of inflation. The copper/gold ratio and U.S. 30 year bond yield are shown in the chart below. So…pullback in the ratio from resistance…and pullback in rates (also from resistance…see 2 charts down)…which may mean a deeper pullback in the ‘inflation trade’. In FX, this would mean higher USD (already underway), lower commodity currencies (getting started), and lower Yen crosses (waiting on the turn).

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.

Market Update: October 8

It’s awfully quiet out there. EURUSD is on pace for its smallest weekly range since 2/21, which of course is right before volatility exploded. Hopefully we get something similar now. My view on EURUSD hasn’t changed. Price continues to churn just under important resistance (neckline and VWAP). I’m presenting a new fork today. Notice how highs and lows since over the last month have been on/near the 25 and 75 lines within this structure. I ‘favor’ EURUSD holding below this resistance.

Market Update – August 21

The EURUSD drop from Tuesday’s high is in 5 waves and price has retraced 38.2% of the decline so weakness could resume now. If that fails to materialize, then the 61.8% is proposed resistance at 1.1903.

Market Update – May 7

BoE is tomorrow and it looks like the bounce to 1.2484 is the extent of the corrective bounce in wave 2 of C. Proposed resistance is now 1.2405/20, which is a well-defined horizontal level and the neckline of a short term head and shoulders.
