US Dollar ($USD) Becomes The Elephant In The Room

by Greg Schnell

Commodities have been struggling recently, even while the $USD has been declining. Today marks an important place on the charts. The dwindling momentum on the MACD and KST on this $USD chart may be pointing to changing times. Both appear ready to start turning higher on the $USD chart. If the downtrend in the $USD is ending, this chart becomes the elephant in the room for Commodities in general. If the dollar is going to rise, Commodities will struggle to rally with a dollar headwind. There is a wider view on the $USD that looks particularly important. If Read More

Breadth Indicators Are Getting Close To Breakdown Levels

by Greg Schnell

Martin Pring's trusty Dow Diffusion Indicator (!PRDIFDOW) has been dripping lower lately. A few people have asked to see more on this indicator so I thought I would share it in a blog rather than a video. If you would like the video version, I covered it on the Canadian Technician Video Recording 2017-05-16. First of all, the Dow has 30 components. So the minimum and maximum on the scale is 30 and -30. The Dow Diffusion Indicator monitors the number of stocks in a rising or descending trend. When it gets below 15, The Dow can move higher but there is not a lot of breadth to the move. When Read More

Natural Gas And Oil Stocks Get Interesting Here

by Greg Schnell

Natural gas was picking up a bullish tone on Friday as it tried to move up to the top of a 2-week trading range. However, Monday moved it back down to the bottom of the range. The typical Natural Gas stocks did not follow the move back down to two weeks lows at the time of writing. I'll just use XOP for this chart. Oil broke 1-year trendlines last week with a big down candle Thursday. On Friday it created a hammer candle and all of the energy stocks soared. Monday gave back most of the bounce in oil but the energy stocks have not Read More
