Copper continues its own grind higher, and its chart is bullish. That points to the economy being in a recovery, however slow and uneven that is.
Finally, gold remains in its bullish consolidation, and it’s my opinion that it would attempt to extend the early summer gains once the floor in the U.S. dollar probes lower values again. This might take time though, as I look for USDX to spike higher first – quite a few bullish divergences have formed there, and will likely play out over the coming weeks.
Given the weakening oil ($WTIC), that would be little surprising, and actually fitting the October correction hypothesis. No markets go up or down in a straight line, and neither the dollar nor the yellow metal, are an exception.
Summing up, the bulls’ complacency was shaken to the core, and the extreme greed sentiment readings are history. The put/call ratio has though barely budged, which is hinting at the correction likely having a bit longer to run, at least in terms of time. The advance-decline line has ticked higher, pointing to a likely upswing attempt right next – and we saw that yesterday. The weekly advance-decline line though could still have a way to go before reaching the June extremes – but this can wait for October to happen.
The key takeaway is though that we have seen a sharp correction, and not a reversal. In such circumstances, trading decisions remain a question of the risk-reward ratio, and one’s willingness to let the dust settle for a moment first.
