It’s been another strong week for equities but are stocks and commodities about to get hit with some selling pressure?
I have put together a short video coving all of these investments but here is my Coles Note Version:
The Dollar is way oversold and looking ready for a multi day bounce. This will put pressure stocks and commodities.
Oil is trading at resistance and with the Fed minutes reported today saying they are some what concerned about the economy still this pulled oil down late in the day. Also if the US Dollar bounces it will add downward pressure to oil.
It’s a tough call on gold because it could go either way here… It could be seen as a safe haven in stocks fall in the coming days, or if the US Dollar moves up then it will put more downward pressure to gold. I feel money can be made a breakout to the up side or the down side. Explained in the video.
Stocks are overbought across the board making things look toppy. We are seeing good earnings from Alcoa, CSX and Intel but the stocks are selling off on the good news which is a bearish sign for the equities market overall. The SP500 gapped up on Tuesday and has been trading sideways in a tight sideways channel building power for the next breakout. Tension is building and we should see a breakout from this channel tomorrow (Thursday). The Odds are pointing to lower prices but only time will tell.
