Russell 2000 Creates Doji Pattern At Top Of 30-Year Channel

Courtesy of Chris Kimble

After months of strong bullish action for the small-cap stock index, the Russell 2000, chart patterns have turned indecisive.

The broader trend is still bullish (higher highs and higher lows), but the month of March produced a Doji pattern. And this comes after a 110% rally!

As well, the Russell 2000 is testing the topside of a 30-Year price channel.

Doji patterns are a sign of indecision… so nothing is decided yet. But it might be worth keeping a close eye as we head into Spring.

Small caps are a “risk-on” indicator, so any stalling out could be a warning to the broader market. Stay tuned!

US Dollar Forecast – Weakness

Courtesy of Read the Ticker

us-dollar-forecast--weaknessThe rise in the US 10 yr as pulled up the US dollar, but soon the trillions of new money printing will soon pressure the dollar south. 

We can see below the dollar ‘T Theory’ cycle suggesting we near done, and a period of change is due in the next 4 to 6 months. Notice how neatly the US dollar fits into even weekly time periods.  

The recent US dollar strength had to happen as EVERY ONE was short the US dollar, as the short energy for hitting the ASK BUTTON just dried up, these past six weeks have set up a nice bounce to smash the US dollar ASK once again over the next 4 to 6 months.

MI2Partners posted this 20 year US Trade Weighted Index (TWI) model on twitter, here

@MI2Partners In #macroeconomics, when you get the direction of the #USdollar right, the rest falls into place. Triffin’s Dilemma reminds us of the inconsistencies in domestic & international goals. The consequences for the #dollar will be profound

As you can see their forecast is for a new 20 year low in the TWI.

Of course this (or just half of the crash) would create a hyperinflation risk on rally, just like the DOW in 1929 or 1987, and just before US mid terms. Hmmm typical!

Main drivers are European banks are doing better (or less worse) compared to US banks, add on the comparison of core inflation between the US and Europe and lower DXY lows can be expected.

ARK Innovation ETF About To Take On Water? Dual Support Test In Play!

Courtesy of Chris Kimble

Red hot ARK Innovation ETF was up nearly 500% over the past year, illustrated in this chart from & Investors Business Daily.

It has cooled off a little over the past 8-weeks, as it declined nearly 40%.

This decline has it testing its 1-year rising channel as well as its 200-day moving average at the same time.

With the trend being up, this is a bullish dual test of support. Until proven differently, this should be a good entry point, following the 40% decline.

If the ARK ETF would happen to break dual support, it could take on water rather quickly.

What this red hot ETF does at dual support will send an important message to several high-flying stocks that it owns!

Gold Miners Bear Market Accelerates If This Happens!

Courtesy of Chris Kimble

Gold mining stocks have struggled since last August, as they have lost nearly 25% in price, putting them into the bear market territory.

Is this enough of a decline? Gold miners have their fingers crossed this critical support holds right now!

The chart looks at Junior Gold miners ETF (GDXJ) over the past 9-years on a weekly basis. Since August of 2020, GDXJ has created a series of lower highs and lower lows, while declining nearly 25%.

Line (1) comes into play at the $45 level. It has been resistance and support several times over the past 8-years.

The 35-week decline now has GDXJ testing line (1) as support at (2). The pattern since the August highs has the potential to be a bull flag. If this pattern is correct, support must hold here and now!

If this support fails to hold, holding onto GDXJ could be very painful in the weeks to come, as the next support level is a large percent below current levels.

12-Year Tech-Bull Market Over? Joe Friday Says: “Watch This Shooting Star Pattern!”

Courtesy of Chris Kimble

The trend for tech stocks remains strongly bullish. Did the Nasdaq Composite create a pattern last month that is worth keeping an eye on? Yes!

The Nasdaq composite remains inside of this 12-year rising channel, as it has created higher lows and higher highs, that started in 2009.

Last month, the index looks to have created a sizeable “shooting star” pattern, at the top of the rising channel at (1).

Does a one-month bearish-reversal pattern suggest that the tech bull market is over? No

Joe Friday Just The Facts Ma’am; If weakness would continue following the bearish shooting star pattern at the top of the long-term bull trend, it would send a caution message to the tech sector.

China Stocks Sending Troubling Message To The World

Courtesy of Chris Kimble

Is Big Trouble about to hit China? If history is a guide, the answer is yes.

This chart looks at China ETF (FXI) on a monthly basis over the past 15-years. FXI has found line (1) to be resistance three different times in the past 13-years.

At this resistance line, it has declined 35% or more each time. Last month it created a large bearish reversal pattern while testing this resistance line at (2).

So far this month, FXI is attempting to break 1-year rising support.

If FXI closes below this support line at the end of the month, it sends a troubling message to stocks around the world!

Euro Currency Break-Down? Commodity Bulls Hope Not!

Courtesy of Chris Kimble

The recent rally in the Euro currency (EURUSD) has drawn the attention of forex traders, macro investors, and the commodities market. The latter has struggled over the past decade due to a falling Euro / rising US Dollar situation.

As you can see in today’s “monthly” chart, the Euro has been trading within a wide falling channel (1) for more than a decade.

But a multi-month rally in the Euro has given life to the fallen currency, as well as commodity bulls.

The rally brought the Euro all the way back to its overhead channel resistance line at (2). But the Euro has stumbled a bit in 2021 and is now attempting to break its 18-month rising trend line support at (3).

If this happens, it will bearish for the Euro (and bullish for the U.S. Dollar). It could also suggest that the commodity rally is peaking! Stay tuned!

Commodities Counter-Trend Rally Going To End Here?

Courtesy of Chris Kimble

The rise in commodities prices has investors (and consumers) concerned about inflation again, with bond prices falling and bond yields rising. It also has investors on watch for breakouts and trading opportunities in select commodities.

Today, we take a look at an important broad index for this asset class: The Thomson Reuters Core Commodity Index. It’s nearing an important long-term juncture, so it’s a “quarterly” price chart.

As you can see, commodities have been trading within a falling channel (marked by each 1) over the past 13 years. BUT last year’s reversal has spurred 4 straight quarters of gains and this commodity index is testing a key confluence of price resistance.

Line (2) has served as price support and resistance over the past 23-years! Price is testing this resistance at the same time that it is testing the top of the falling channel line at (3).

Whether it be Energy, Grains, or Precious Metals… it sure seems like commodities are nearing a very important juncture in time and price! What happens here will send an important message to commodities and bonds. Stay tuned!

Gold Indicator Hanging Onto Support By A Thread! Gold Bulls Pay Attention!!!

Courtesy of Chris Kimble

Is Gold about to receive a very important bull/bear signal this month? Looks like it!

This chart takes a peek at the Gold/U.S. Dollar ratio over the past 15-years. The ratio double topped at (1) and once it broke support in 2013, it declined sharply over the next 24-months.

It peaked in August of last year at (2), where it appears to have created another double top.

The decline over the past 7-months has it testing the 10-year support level at (3).

The Gold/US$ ratio is hanging onto support by a thread this month. Gold bulls should be aware how important it is for Gold that this support holds!!!

Will Historic Selloff In Treasury Bonds Turn Into Opportunity?

Courtesy of Chris Kimble

Long-dated treasury bonds have been crushed over the past year, sending ETFs like TLT (20+ Year US Treasury Bond ETF) spiraling over 20%.

Improving economy? Inflation concerns? Perhaps a combination of both… interest rates have risen sharply and thus bond prices have fallen in historic fashion.

Today’s chart looks at $TLT over the past 20 years. As you can see, the recent decline has truly been historic. $TLT’s price has swung from historically overbought highs to oversold lows.

At present, the long-dated bond ETF ($TLT) is trading 7.8% below its 200-...

Our Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling system is suggesting a moderate price peak may be already setting up in the NASDAQ while the Dow Jones, S&P500, and Transportation Index continue to rally beyond the projected Fibonacci Price Expansion Levels.  This indicates that capital may be shifting away from the already lofty Technology sector and into Basic Materials, Financials, Energy, Consumer Staples, Utilities, as well as other sectors.

This type of a structural market shift indicates a move away from speculation and towards Blue Chip returns. It suggests traders and investors are expecting the US consumer to come back strong (or at least hold up the market at...
