Join Paul tomorrow at 9:30 GMT for the “Becoming a Better Trader” webinar, where he will discuss the importance of having a trading plan.

In this webinar, we focused primarily on FX with some emphasis on precious metals, crude oil, and global equity indices.

First off, we looked at the US Dollar Index (DXY) which is sitting below all levels of support and looking heading lower. EURUSD has broken out strongly above key trend-lines, but will face off with some decent resistance around 11140. A pullback/consolidation could offer up a potentially rewarding long-entry soon. GBPUSD is consolidating nicely, with a breakout looking like the likely scenario. There is one possible bearish scenario in the short-term, but with bigger picture support and trend direction favorable, weakness appears as though it will be viewed as a buying opportunity by the market. NZDUSD and AUDUSD are on the other end of the USD-spectrum and don’t look so hot, making them possible short candidates.

EURGBP is at an interesting cross-road of trend-lines and has our interest piqued from the short-side. Other cross-rates we looked at included – EURAUD, EURNZD, GBPAUD, GBPNZD, and a few of the JPY crosses. In the emerging market FX we looked at USDMXN and USDZAR – we’re in wait-and-see mode for now, but could have compelling set-ups down the road.

Precious metals are bouncing into resistance levels. Both gold and silver are working higher in short-term upward channels – a break of those channels may end the recent bounce.

Crude oil tagged off and turned lower from the trend-line we were looking at in yesterday’s webinar. A rising trend-line was broken as a result and shifts the focus back to the downside.

Global indices are still in bull-mode, but teetering a bit at current levels. The DAX is wobbling a bit, but price action is not invasive at this point. The FTSE 100 is trading at a top-side trend-line and may put a lid on it, at least in the near-term. The S&P 500 is still in consolidation phase; as long as 2380 holds then the market remains neutral to bullish.

For full technical considerations, please see the video above.
