Nymex Light Crude broke through resistance at $50/barrel, signaling a primary advance with a target of $54/barrel. Expect retracement to test the new support level but respect is likely and would confirm the up-trend.
The Dollar Index is retracing to test its new resistance level at 93. Rising crude prices are bearish for the Dollar and respect of resistance is likely, which would confirm another decline. Twiggs Trend Index has started to rise, however, and recovery above 93, while less likely, would warn of a bear market rally.
*Target: 93 – ( 103 – 93 ) = 83
Spot Gold found short-term support at $1290/ounce, overshooting the $1300 target. Political tensions are high and a weaker Dollar would drive another gold advance. Recovery of gold above its descending trendline and Twiggs Trend Index above zero would strengthen the signal. But breach of $1290 is as likely and would warn of a test of $1250.
Target 1300 + ( 1300 – 1200 ) = 1400
