FTSE 100 aiming to move above 7600

The index managed to push its way above 7600 yesterday, but was unable to hold these gains. A reversal below 7540 and the 50-day SMA would be a bearish development and signal that the sellers were in control once more.

This might then open the way to a move to the lows of July around 7250. A close above 7600 would mark a more bullish event and then allow the price to contemplate a renewed move to 7700. This is where the July rally stalled, and so a close above this level would add to the bullish view.

DAX moves back above 100-day MA

European indices had gained in the wake of the US CPI reading, but then failed to hold their gains. The Dax succeeded in reaching the 50-day SMA again but then fell back. Early trading this morning has seen the index drop back slightly.

Further losses would suggest a retest of 15,700, and then down to 15,500 and the July low. As throughout the past week, bulls will need a close above 16,000 to provide the necessary catalyst for a new move back to the record highs seen in July.

Dow attempting to move higher again

The Dow suffered a notable intraday reversal yesterday, after attempting to rally above 35,500 following the inflation reading. For the current weakness to turn into even a modest pullback to the 50-day SMA, the 35,060 level needs to be broken on a daily closing basis. This might then see further losses towards the June resistance level of 34,506.

For the moment, however, price action still looks like consolidation, and continued activity above 35,000 will bolster bullish hopes that a new move higher can develop.

    • Commodity Market Elliott Wave Analysis for Bitcoin, Bonds, Yields, USD/ DXY, Gold, Silver, Iron Ore, Copper, Uranium, Crude Oil, Natural Gas, Corn, Wheat, Soybeans, Coffee, Cocoa. Commodity Market Elliott Wave Analysis Update: Identifying the crucial turn in the USD is paramount in our analysis. However, the challenge lies in interpreting the upward movement of the USD DXY, as it can be construed in multiple ways. To gain clarity on the DXY, I examine the 10-year Yields, which indicate further upside potential. Concurrently, TLT Bonds suggest continued downside momentum. Consequently, Gold, Silver, and base metals remain susceptible to selling pressure. Additionally, the Crude oil market exhibits an upward trajectory, aligning closely with the movement of the USD DXY. Notably, Forex pairs, particularly the AUDUSD, demonstrate a direct correlation due to the interconnectedness of commodity dollars. In summary, the market pivot necessary for trading has yet to materialize and may not occur until mid-March 24. Bitcoin: Wave iv) has concluded, and Wave v) appears poised towards 55k. Dollar: Expectations point to an increase in both the Dollar and Yields, with Bonds likely to decline. Gold and Silver: Currently experiencing a corrective rally. Crude oil: Favorable for long positions in crude, while shorting gas remains advisable. Video Chapters 00:00 Bitcoin (BTC) 03:28 US Dollar Index, DXY / TLT Bonds.

    • Yeah, I think it's the mechanism behind the BGB price trend. This could go farther than one would expect. So I'll be trying to add it to my pf to help boost its healthiness in the future.
    • I don't think we can still take part in the airdrop but buying it could be the best option particularly as the market seems to be helping to create a good entry price.
