BTCUSD 4 HOUR

Market Update 10/27 – BTCUSD Warning Equities?

BTCUSD is off 13% since the top last week. If price drops under the short term lower channel line near 56830 then weakness will be considered impulsive and ‘waterfall’ weakness would be on the table. Watch for resistance near 61850. The weekly chart is shown below. This looks ‘toppy’ to me. Yes, ‘toppy’ is an official technical term. Former trendline support has provided resistance on the way up, a doji candle formed last week, and the rally failed after taking out the prior high. Seems bearish. Finally, is BTCUSD trying to tell equities something (see 2 charts down)

USDCAD 4 HOUR

Market Update 10/26 – USDCAD 4th Wave into BoC

No change to USDCAD but I’m re-posting the chart because BoC is tomorrow. I continues to favor the scenario in which the bounce from 10/21 is a 4th wave. Ideal resistance is 1.2470/90 (38.2% retrace of well-defined pivot since June).

EURJPY HOURLY

Market Update 10/24 – EURJPY Short Setup

EURJPY sports 5 waves down from the 10/20 high so watch for resistance near 132.79 (4th wave high). The 10/20 high is on the upper parallel from the fork that originates at the September low. Eventual proposed support is the lower parallel, which intersects with the September high at 130.75.

USDCAD DAILY

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.

AUDUSD 4 HOUR

Market Update 10/11 – AUDUSD Trendline Resistance

AUDUSD reversed lower from the noted .7360. I am looking lower as long as price is below today’s high. .7290 is possible support. If price breaks above trendline resistance (red line), then focus would shift to .7617.

SPOT SILVER 4 HOUR

Market Update 10/6 – USDNOK Trade Idea

Silver is bullish. The rally from the low is impulsive. The question is whether or not the correction is complete. Either price pulls back to 21.90-22.10 or price breaks above the 75 line (parallel just above price) and the top side of that line then provides support. A zoomed in version and possible path is below.

GBPUSD DAILY

Market Update 10/5 – Has the USD Turned?

I continue to lean towards the idea that the next GBPUSD dip is a buying opportunity. Of course, we need the dip! There is a lot in the way for possible resistance up to about 1.3670. The underside of the line off of the July and August lows is now (along with short term VWAP resistance…see 2 charts down), the year open is 1.3655, and the March and April lows are 1.3670. The short term wave count is shown below and 1.3530 remains initial support.

XLY WEEKLY

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.

SPOT SILVER DAILY

Market Update 9/30 – Watch USDCHF for Clues

Silver turned up sharply today after dipping below the September 2020 low. Support is reinforced by channel support down here as well. Simply, the combination of well-defined support and extreme pessimism (numerous headlines include ‘plunge’) suggest that it’s time to turn bullish. I’m like the long side now. The first test is about 22.88.
