Setups for This Week:

Primary View:
  • The currency pair has dipped below the significant 150 benchmark, a pivotal psychological turning point.
  • There's a false breakout in play, highlighted in yellow.
  • With the price breaching one uptrend line and knocking on the door of another, the vibe remains bleak. All bets are off if we linger below the designated blue line.
Alternative View:
  • Should we witness the price making a comeback above the 150 mark, it will be our cue to buy.

Dow Jones
Primary View:
  • Last week, Dow Jones punched through an absolutely crucial horizontal support, in tandem with the 38.2 Fibonacci (grey).
  • This breach serves to solidify and endorse the sell signal on Dow Jones.
Alternative View:
  • Rebounding above the 38.2 Fibonacci? That's the market's way of flashing a green light to buy.

Primary View:
  • Gold's shimmering performance persists post its grand exit from the flag formation, outlined by black lines.
  • Riding the upswing wave, all eyes are on the prize at the 2070 USD/oz level, marked in blue.
Alternative View:
  • As enthralling as the current surge might seem, it's rather extended. A bearish breather or correction wouldn't be out of place. However, only a dip below the orange fortress would ring the sell alarms.
