USD/CAD trading down into long-term support
USD/CAD weakness has held good momentum but that could be on the verge of changing with both the 200-day MA and one-year trend-line in proximity to one another. Either a bounce is already getting underway or we will see another small push lower and test of the one-year trend-line before attempting to mount a recovery. The ~13120/050-area is an important one to keep an eye on.

AUD/USD finding it difficult at trend resistance
AUD/USD is sporting a nearly identical situation as the one seen in USD/CAD, just in reverse. There is a one-year trend-line running lower along with the 200-day just above that. An attempted turn down in-line with the longer-term trend is expected in the near-term. How much lower isn’t yet clear, but risk is on the side of sellers at the moment.

Gold is due for a pullback to alleviate overbought conditions
Gold has rallied impressively, more-so than this market participant figured on. Resistance around 1305/10 looked formidable, but as it turned out it wasn’t. Nevertheless, risk, despite breaking above, is still skewed lower with yesterday posting a smallish reversal day and overbought conditions in need of being alleviated.

Dow Jones may weaken from crossroads around 25k
The ferocious bounce in the market has the Dow up against an important set of resistance levels. The 200-day and trend-line off the record high stand in its way. It’s worth noting that these also just so happen to align at 25k, a psychological level worthy of noting with actual technical events crossing through.
