Dollar fall buoys Gold

The Dollar Index ended weakly, breaking long-term support at 93. Declining Twiggs Trend Index warns of sustained selling pressure. Follow-through below 92 would confirm another primary decline, with a long-term target between 83 and 84*.

A weak Dollar is bullish for Gold. Spot gold is consolidating below resistance at $1300/ounce. Rising Twiggs Trend Index signals buying pressure. Upward breakout above $1300 is likely and would signal another primary advance, with a target of $1400*. Reversal below $1250 is unlikely but would warn of another test of primary support at $1200.

Always the wild card, crude is consolidating below resistance at $50/barrel. The weak Dollar is also bullish for crude oil prices. Declining Twiggs Trend Index warns of long-term selling pressure. That favors another test of support at $40/barrel, continuing the primary down-trend. But breakout above $50 and all bets are off.
