  • I am a gold bull as I have been for a while. I'm dubious on this current breakout holding, however, for a few reasons. 1) first test above a big zone in a long time 2) $USD is near a huge spot of support (below) 3) It's a Monday and $Gold is already stretched https://t.co/kVtOsQ8iyx https://t.co/ueeWs6XcN2

Talking Points:

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices corrected cautiously higher after producing the largest decline in a month yesterday. Near-term resistance is at 10411, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break back above that on a daily closing basis initially targeting the 14.6% level at 10443. Renewed downward momentum aims for 10359, the 38.2% Fib. A break below that eyes the bottom of a falling channel guiding the down trend since the beginning of the year, now at 10336.

S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices rebounded as expected after putting in a Piercing Line candlestick pattern. Prices are testing the 38.2%Fibonacci expansionat 1880.30, with a break above that targeting the 50%level at 1889.60. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6%Fibat 1868.70 exposes the April 28 low at 1850.10.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are consolidating below resistance in the 1315.60-19.28 area, marked by the top of a descending Triangle chart formation and the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement. A break above that on daily closing basis targets the 50% level at 1330.18. The descending Triangle argues in favor of bearish continuation however (though confirmation is absent for now). Near-term support is at 1277.00, the Triangle bottom, followed by the April 24 low at 1268.40.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices turned higher to reclaim a foothold above the $100/barrel figure, taking out the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 100.53. The bulls now aim to challenge the 38.2% level at 101.64, with a further break above that targeting the 50% Fib at 102.54. Alternatively, a reversal back below support on a daily closing basis exposes the May 1 low at 98.73.
