A most unusual Triad [USDCAD; DX; Oil]


Mercury

Recommended Posts

My main objective as an analyst is to identify trend changes early so I can trade with the trend.  I also like to see related markets in correlation as this adds weight to any technical analysis I might have in play.  At the end of last week Brent Crude seemed to hit support right in the zone I was forecasting (i.e. at the Flag upper line - see chart).  At the same time USD (Dollar index) appeared to stumble in its recent rally and reverse.  Whether this reversal delivers a lower low or simply a retrace to the lower Triangle is as yet unclear and in any case moot so long as the near term direction is down.  Supporting this view my analysis of GBPUSD; EURUSD and USDJPY all indicate weakness in USD, albeit of a temporary retrace fashion.  All of which brings 2 forces to bear on USDCAD being USD weakness and Oil strength (which = CAD strength).

 

If all of this remains true for the next few weeks or so (say the month of September) then we can expect a rally in Oil and a bear move in USDCAD and DX.  This could all culminate in line with Stock market tops as separately posted.  In particular USDCAD could be in line for a very strong move down to a Wave 4 end before a strong rally.

 

Here are the daily charts for all three, what do you think?

Looking at the oil presently, it seems to me that we still have not completed the retracement of the down side and on the hourly time frame we see a nice ABC or W4 of C of the retrace. Therefore we could potentially see some more down side.

I also have queried the possibility that on a weekly time frame we could be seeing an overall ABC, but I would not be an advocate for this general weekly pattern as I have not analysed it enough. But on a 4 hourly I do see some further downside before the leg up.

That could be  but Oil is a capricious market and often doesn't fully conform to EWT (or at least not nice easy to see ones).  Note I am assuming you are basing your assessment solely on EWT count, maybe you have other signals of this final leg?  Also when it runs it runs hard so if you want to trade Oil (actually almost any commodity I think) you have to get in on the initial breakout and stop protect then if there is another retrace go again.  There is just as much chance that this market fires away in a rally next week as there is a retrace.

 

What I was looking for was a retest of the flag formation on my Daily chart, which I got with a touch and rebound of the Fib 62%.  This is a historically reliable signal in my experience and certainly fulfilled all the criteria I have in my trading "rules" so I went Long.  If there is a retrace to a new low and another touch on the Flag line then I will get stopped out and go Long again, that's trading.

    • HI,  Please if any IG supporting staff can answer the questions below? 1. in the upcoming AMC/APE vote on 14 March 2023, can shareholder that hold AMC and APE at IG able to make a vote? I also have AMC and APE at IBKR and they did send out a notification to inform me that I can do proxy vote. Will IG do the same? 2. the upcoming vote is to determine APE covert back to AMC then do reverse spilt. Last year after APE issued, IG staff told me that they have to move APE to share dealing account from my ISA account as ISA is not eligible to hold APE (which is completely unbelivable, my APE at AJ Bell and HL are still sitting in ISA account). Anyway, if the conversion and reverse spilt is going to happen, will IG move my APE back to ISA account for the corporate action? Many Thanks
    • The epidemic in recent years has produced profound changes in people's lifestyles, and many of their activities have started to be developed in the virtual world, which plays an important role in promoting the development of the universe of meta. Games, as an important part of the universe of meta, will be the first industry to gain the benefits , but the following conditions are still indispensable for blockchain games to achieve better development.   - Wallets and Exchanges. Through the use of wallets, game users can truly take control of the assets in the game, and exchanges provide a trading platform and liquidity for these game assets NFT, helping users trade and revitalize their game assets. Wallets are a key application for depositing blockchain assets. Currently, wallets such as Metamask are not enough to support the extensive adoption of block games, and wallets will further advance community drive the popularity of blockchain games.  - Game playability. The biggest difference between blockchain games and traditional games is that gamers are also investors. Many blockchain games have gone out of course, treating all users as investors only and forgetting that the essence of making games is to develop high-quality games that users are interested in paying for. If most people play a game just to make money, and no one is ready to pay for it, it becomes a side-scam. The revenue of the participants of the side scam comes from the money of the people who come later, and if there are not enough people who come later, they will not be able to cash in the revenue, leading to the breakdown.  - Speed and performance. A high level of concurrency is the characteristic of game applications, so Wax, Coinan Chain and Polygon, which are public chains with a high level of concurrency and low fees, have attracted a large number of game developers. In the future, with the maturity of technologies such as Ethernet Layer 2 and slice scaling, as well as the maturity of other gaming public chain technologies compatible with EVM, blockchain games will have a better development and operation environment.  - Cross-chain and interaction. Cross-chain and interaction of game assets will be a direction of future development of metaverse games, and blockchain should be connected and accessible like the Internet. The maturity of cross-chain technology in the future will promote the cross-chain transfer of game assets and NFT, and improve the interaction experience of the system                                                                                     The game should maintain the operation of the project by relying on the payment of some users or selling profitable products, just like the new blockchain game Fairy Cat in 2023, which developed diverse gameplay for players and increased the playability of the game, thus got the recognition of many players. Blockchain games need to work hard on game experience and playability. Token economics is essentially just a kind of interest structure , and even good token economics cannot replace the development, operation and profitability of the project itself. It is believed that with the maturity of the above conditions, more and more game developers and investors will enter this industry and together promote the production of some blockchain games with beautiful graphics, first-class experience and high playability.
    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
