    The AAII survey for the week ended July 22nd. still shows their members skeptical of this market rally (me too)…….the bulls were down 4.8 to 26.1% historical average is 38%…..the bears up 1.5 to 46.8% historical average us 30.5%….hard to see this market dropping too much while the public remain spooked…….

  2. Larry/ON Says:

    The market is having some trouble at this point. Risk/Reward is not good. The
    CNN Fear/Greed index went higher into greed yesterday at 70.

  3. Larry/ON Says:

    GLD – At the moment an inverted hammer is forming with RSI at 78. If the market tanks it can take gold down with it which is what happened in March.

  4. Ron/BC Says:

    The Canadian dollar $CDW is bumping up against major price resistance at 75. The CD$ is known as a commodity currency so it’s price action is relevant to commodity prices as well. Price needs to clear and hold above 75 at some point to expect commodities to follow. Looking at a bunch of Oil Stocks most have sold off steadily but are now stabilizing with some potentially bullish charts.

    Meanwhile the CD$ Seasonality chart below is extremely negative for the month of August. So perhaps a selloff in the CD$ and commodities is at hand. Watch the 75 cent level on the CD$ for direction. And as always draw your own conclusions………………

  5. Ron/BC Says:

    Speaking of commodities $GOLD is also approaching a long term double top. (today’s data not on the chart yet). This needs to be cleared and tested to suggest more strength. And August is not as bullish as July. Perhaps it’s time to go on a holiday…..for some it would be under the bed with the dust bunnies. I prefer the Golf Course………

  6. Larry/ON Says:

    $CAD – RON/BC – The CAD chart is looking like a cup and handle formation requiring a break above 75.11 to make a major move higher. I don’t think it is too much of a stretch to go to 0.77.

    QQQ – Touched mid-Bollinger Band today and is trying to stay above. We need a drop to the 50day MA to take the froth out of this market. It hasn’t touched the 50 day since April and at the moment you are looking at a double top with the market unable to make a new high on Tuesday.

  7. Mary Says:

    Ron/BC and Larry

    Thanks for your continuous updates on the market. Indeed today was the day to trade DUST/JDST atleast for now. Printing press working 24/7 so wouldn’t overstay.

  8. Ron/BC Says:

    A cup and handle pattern needs a handle to build and then break out above the handle. So far the CD$ price is simply at resistance with the seasonal trend for August VERY weak.

  9. Larry/ON Says:

    Re 8. RON/BC – I defer to your take on it for now. I’m thinking if commodity prices keep rising it will pull up $CAD.
