Market Update: December 22

NZDJPY filled the previously uncovered close from May 2019 early this Month and is threatening to break down from a 4 week topping pattern now. The 200 week average has been resistance for years and is proving itself again at the current juncture. Near term focus is on former resistance at 72.00 with a much deeper drop (69.00ish) from the current level possible given the specter of 5 waves up from the March low.

DXY is up sharply in early week trading, raising the specter that wave ‘5 of 5’ is complete at last week’s low. If the rally stretches into 5 waves, then focus will be on buying a small pullback for what likely proves to be a multi-month rally in order to correct the entire decline from the March high. Stay tuned.

Market Update: December 15

As noted yesterday, the GBPUSD drop from 12/4 to 12/11 is in 2 equal waves. The implication is that the drop is corrective, although it could also compose the first leg of a complex correction. In any case, keep an eye on the top side of the just broken channel. That line is about 1.3380. If that holds as support, then I’d consider longs for a potentially massive breakout as a move above 1.3500 would shift focus to the 2007-2014 line near 1.4050

Market Update: December 14

Given the tag of a long term Fibonacci level in copper, I’m keeping a close eye on the near term picture. 3.45 is a level to know over the next day. This is the center line of the channel from the March low. A break below would indicate a near term behavior change and shift focus to the lower parallel. That is currently about 3.25. The line increases about .0050 a day.

Copper reached the noted 61.8% retrace at 3.6130 on Friday and reversed lower. The level is also reinforced by the upper parallel of the channel from the March low. Let’s see how action develops following Friday’s reversal but this is a great spot for a more important pivot. I’m also wondering if copper is ‘the canary in the coal mine’ regarding other assets (USD, stocks, BTCUSD, etc.).

Market Update: December 7

GBPUSD is following through on Friday’s reversal. As noted yesterday, this bounce presents a short opportunity. Ideal resistance is about 1.3440 (12/1 and 12/2 highs and underside of the median line). Initial downside focus is the line off of the September and November lows near 1.3030.

Interestingly, a daily volume reversal triggered on Friday from a 2 year high in EURUSD. There have only been 4 instances of this happening since inception of the euro (see chart below). If a top is in place at Friday’s high, then impulsive weakness likely extends towards 1.2040 before a bounce. That bounce would present the opportunity to short.

Market Update: December 2

Gold is one of the only things I’ve gotten right recently. Watch for resistance and a reaction near 1849. If price pulls back from there then I’d keep 1800 in mind for support and a higher low against the 11/30 low.

Market Update: November 23

Gold tagged proposed resistance on Friday and dumped today…beautiful. Price is quickly approaching the long held support near 1780. This level is an important parallel and the lower channel line from the bearish channel off of the August high. I’ll be paying close attention to 1780 for reversal evidence.
