The $&P500 has now broken below its rising wedge. The price target for this break is 2,400.


EURUSD gains ground

The EURUSD has now broken above its uptrend channel on a more hawkish ECB. The upper resistance line of the uptrend channel now becomes a support for buying into the rally.


Following the “death cross“ we had on the DXY last week, the US dollar index has now moved lower as predicted by the technicals.

The focus is now on the 9 November 2016 (Trump victory) low of 95.9.


Gold makes a comeback

Following the "fat finger" incident for gold on Monday 26 June, the precious metal appears to be making a comeback, as it continues to bounce off its 200 day moving average:
