US Dollar Strength Will Drive Markets Higher

Almost counter to current institutional thinking, the strength in the US Dollar will likely continue to push the US stock market higher over the next few weeks/months and act as a supporting price bias in any event of a short term global/us stock market price collapse.  Many traders/investors fail to understand the capacity of the US Dollar to wreak havoc on foreign markets as well as to act as a support level for US equities and US investments.

The support level near $96 is currently acting as a solid price floor.  Our researchers believe an attempt to breach the $99 level will happen soon and this continued strength will put further pressures on foreign currencies, commodities, metals and trade issues.

These shifting dynamics of the currency markets are presenting very clear evidence that investors believe stronger, more mature economies are going to continue to perform over the future months that weaker, more at-risk economies.  The Japanese Yen, Canadian Dollar, Swiss Franc, and US Dollar are all performing quite well in this Year-To-Date comparison graph (below).  The New Zealand Dollar, Euro, British Pound, and Australian Dollar are all dramatically weaker.

Our research team put this comparison chart together to further illustrate the weakness of Asian currencies in relation to the relative strength of the US and major global currencies.  This chart attempt to compare currency strength by grouping relative currency pairs and comparing them as an Asian Currency Group vs a Global Major Currency Group.  As price advances, the Asian Currency Group is relatively stronger overall.  As price declines, the Asian Currency Group is weakening and the Global Major Currency Group is strengthening.

Currently, this chart shows the fragility of the Asian Currency Group.  Any break of the lower price channel level and we enter a new downside price trend that may attempt to establish a much lower price support channel for Asian Currencies, Asian Stock Markets, and the overall global markets.

Our researchers believe the continued strength of the US Dollar and the US stock market are pushing historical normal price ranges beyond expected boundaries.  As gold increases because of fear and greed, countries with larger gold reserves can attempt to offset certain losses from currency and economic weakness.  Yet companies and governments that attempted to leverage the “Dollar Carry Trade” environment from years ago may find themselves in very dangerous territory as Asian currencies continue to weaken.

A stronger US Dollar will attempt to mute the upside price activity of Gold and Silver while pushing these currencies into deeper and deeper valuation declines.  See our recent charts and short term dollar/gold forecast here. A continued shifting of capital away from “at-risk” economies/nations could push these currencies into a death spiral type of free-fall over time.

We believe the US Dollar will continue to move moderately higher over the next 4+ weeks and likely attempt to move towards the $99 price level.  This move will somewhat mute the advance of Gold and Silver, yet we believe the weakness that is likely to unfold in the foreign currency markets will prompt renewed fear and greed – pushing Gold prices much higher – even as the US Dollar continues to strengthen.

Once the XAUUSD level breaks the $1440 level – it should rally up to the $1615 to $1625 level very quickly.  This would likely be the breaking point for the Asian currencies as well.  A move like that would likely push these Asian currencies below historical price envelopes and create a panic-type of a capital shift away from risk.

Our research team believes this move will likely happen sometime between Mid-August and early September 2019.  This means we are only about 35 to 45 days away from an incredibly volatile price swing in the global markets.  This is something that most traders/investors have failed to even begin to comprehend or consider.

What would happen if the Asian capital markets and currencies collapsed on broad weakness and a major credit/debt crisis event?  An event where currencies devalue to a level that suggests forward operations are severely threatened, the rising price of Gold is not offsetting losses and commodity prices collapse pushing even further pressures on commodity/currency backed loans/debt?

US Dollar Rallies Off Support But Is This A Top Or Bottom?

The US dollar rallied nearly half a percent off recent support near $96.50.  This upside price move confirms the capital shift we have been talking about.  Foreign capital is pouring into US markets and US dollar as strength in the US economy continues to dominate.

This new upside move in the US dollar has established a new lower price channel that should continue to act as price support going forward. Fibonacci price structure dictates that a higher low and a higher high price rotation may follow. We would expect some resistance just below the $98 level and if the Fed lowers the rate the dollar will likely pullback and consolidate for a few weeks to digest the news, but investors will still see the USD as the strong currency and keep buying it longer term.

It is important to understand the strength in the US dollar and the US economy should continue unless something interrupts the growth and continued out what from the US. It is very likely capital will continue to seek out the best returns and the best safety which we believe is available only in the US right now. Eventually, things may change where foreign markets become more opportunistic for investors and capital begins to shift away from the US markets. Until that happens we believe the US markets will continue to drive higher and likely push towards new all-time highs.

The strength of the US dollar is muting the upside potential in precious metals as well as the US stock market. We believe the underlying strength and opportunities resulting from the capital shift, where capital is rushing into US markets, will eventually override the strength of the US dollar. In other words, investors will continue to pour money into US stocks and into precious metals as a protection mechanism against risk while the US dollar continues to rise.  If and when the US dollar does rate below the lower price channel, the US stock market may likely breakdown as well and precious metals should skyrocket higher. Until that time, we expect a moderate price advance to continue in the US stock market major and mid-cap sectors, the US dollar, and precious metals.

Gold will likely rally from the 1340 level to just below 1380 on the next leg. Then Gold will likely cause and rotate to near 1360, pause briefly, then rally to levels above 1400. We believe this rally may happen before July 12-15, 2019.

Follow our research to stay ahead of the market moves.  We’ve been warning our followers for months that 2019 and 2020 will include incredible opportunities for skilled traders. We’ve also been calling these major moves very accurately. With the US elections only 15 months away, we urge all traders and investors to pay very close attention to our research and insights.

We have recently suggested that a major price may set up in late August or early September 2019. Once we get to this date or closer to this inflection point, we’ll provide more insight as to what our modeling systems are suggesting.

UNIQUE PHYSICAL SILVER OPPORTUNITY:

I have taken advantage of the flow into the safe-haven assets like the Utility sector, and most importantly precious metals (GLD up 3.68%, GDXJ up 11.16%). I anticipated this and our XLU utilities ETF taken with members was a quick 3.11% winner. Our VIX ETF trade also hit our 25% profit target within a few days of entry.

Chris Vermeulen. Founder of The Technical Traders joins me to share his thoughts on the recent flow of money into safe haven assets.

Market Melt-up Brings Volatility to Metals

Our recent analysis bases on a previous report of the potential for a further run in the US markets based on a number of technical and fundamental factors leads to the question of “what could happen with Gold and Silver”.  A broad US market rally may put some pressure on the metals markets initially, but, in our opinion, the increase in volatility and uncertainty will likely prompt more potential for upward price action in precious metals.

 

As with most things in the midst of uncertainty and transition, the US Presidential election has caused many traders to rethink positions and potential.  As foreign elections continue to play out, wild currency moves are starting to become more of a standard for volatility.  Combine this with a new US President and a repositioning of US global and local objectives and we believe we are setting up for one of the most expansive moves in recent years for the US general markets and the metals markets.  This week, alone, we have seen a flurry of action in DC and the US markets broke upward on news of the Dakota Pipeline and other Executive actions.

 

As we wrote week or so ago, we believe the US markets will push higher in 2017 a business investment, US strategy and foreign capital runs back into the US equity market chasing opportunity and gains.  Additionally, we believe the strength of the US market, paired with continued strength of the US Dollar, will drive a further increase in global volatility and wild swings in foreign markets.  This volatility, uncertainty and equity repositioning will likely drive Gold and Silver to continued highs throughout 2017 – possibly much longer if the new trend generates renewed follow-through.

 

Our belief that the US markets will continue to melt-up while certain foreign markets deteriorate relates to our belief that currency variances will become more volatile and excessive over the next few months.  This, in combination with a renewed interest in developing US economic solutions, will likely drive the US markets higher while the metals markets will continue to become a safe-haven for US and foreign investors to protect against deflation and foreign market corrections.

 

S&P Futures are setting up a clear bullish pennant/flag formation that will likely prompt an explosive price move within 2~3 weeks.  This bullish flag formation is likely to drive the ES price higher by roughly 100+ pts.  Currently, strong resistance is just above 2275, so we’ll have to wait for this level to be breached before we see any potential for a bigger price move.

GOLD is channeling in a very clear and narrow upward price channel and trading in the middle of a support zone.  The recent reversal, near the end of 2016, was interesting because GOLD trailed lower after the US election, but then reversed course just before the new year.  The interesting fact about this move is that this new upward swing in GOLD correlates with the beginning of the Bullish Flag in the S&P Futures as well as a decrease in volatility.  We believe as this Bullish Flag will prompt a jump in volatility and price action that will result in is a strong push higher in GOLD.

SILVER is setting up in a similar manner as GOLD.  Although the SILVER chart provides a clearer picture of the downward price channel that is about to be breached – and likely drive both SILVER and GOLD into a new bullish rally.  The support Zone in SILVER, between $16.60 ~ $17.40 is still very much in play.  SILVER will likely stay within this zone while the Bullish Flag plays out.  Yet, when the breakout begins, a move above $18.00 will be very quick and upside targets are $18.50~18.75 and $19.50~$20.00 (possibly much higher in the long run).

EUR/USD correlation to the US moves should be viewed as measure of strengthening US economy/USD as related to foreign market volatility and potential.  As the USD strengthens, this puts pressure on foreign governments and global transactions based in USD.  This also puts pressure on the METALS markets because billions of people around the globe consume precious metals as a “safe-haven” related to currency volatility.  We expect the EUR/USD levels to fall near “parity” (1.00) again and possibly dip below parity based on future foreign election results.  This volatility and uncertainty will translate to increased opportunity for GOLD and SILVER to run much higher over the next few months.

Right now is a fantastic opportunity to take advantage of these lower prices.  We may see rotation near to the lower support zone levels as price rotates over the next few weeks.  The key to any trade in the metals market is to understand the potential moves and watch for confluence and volatility in other markets.  We believe the next few weeks/months will be very telling.  If we are correct, we’ll see new highs in the US markets fairly quickly and we’ll see a new potential bullish breakout in GOLD and SILVER.
