EU struggles to pass 1.2000s as US markets fall from overvalued prices in the stock market. The pair is back in a support zone showing that price wants to go lower. A break in that support zone (which is a common pattern we see in a couple other pairs) would be a sign that we are in for continued downtrend.
GU comes back for a second test on support without making a promising rally on the daily chart. GU has very strong support on the daily chart with June support and the 200 DMA. A bounce would seem likely, however, a break would be very bearish for the pair that's been running up since March.
AUDNZD falls to another low as it comes up to resistance. Key support is not very clear on the daily chart except for the 200 DMA way down at around 1.6000s. Gold continues to fall as well which is not good for the Aussie.
Gold now breaks through support, and a close below it would be more bearish for this metal. No clear support lies on the daily chart until the 200 DMA as well. A short term bearish bias is definitely viable for gold, but only because USD rises in times of panic or crisis. USD will continue to rise as markets fall, but that will not last over the long term in my opinion. For reasons stated in the other articles I've written, USD will fall again due to the immense amount of money printing we saw earlier this year with inflation rising. Gold also tends to outperform the markets and is less volatile. This pair is definitely a safer place to put your money.
Before I continue, do you see a pattern here? All these pairs are dropping, but why? What all these pairs have in common is their correlation to US equities. When the US market falls, these pairs drop as well. When the market saw its largest bull market in history, so did these pairs.
After creating lower lows on the daily chart, the market continued to sell off hard as soon as it opened this morning. SPX500 is currently hovering on support, but key support lies on the 200 DMA. If price comes down here, we will definitely see a bounce, but the question is: will it be enough for another bull rally? The market historically uses that moving average as a place to long again, but uncertainties with the election, coronavirus vaccine, cases rising again, lack of stimulus, inflation, suffering economy, etc. is aligning for a fearful market. After a season of greed, fear steps in and takes over market sentiment. With September being a month of selling also contributes to bearish sentiment. This is because the months before are usually high-profit periods for investors.
Regardless of the fear taking place, I think this downside movement is healthy for our market. A correction like this was a long time coming, but the bulls wouldn't let it drop. What we're seeing is just a big flush out of stocks so the market can find a balance at 'reasonable' prices for investors to find more attractive. If you plan on investing or putting some money in to the market now, the best thing to do is to dip your toes in. Don't be swayed one way or the other, just be ready to hold whatever you have for the long run. With a small amount of your portfolio in the market or major pairs, you can always long again if prices continues to work against you.
Remember, this is not a time to panic like most sellers. Keep a cool head and trade on! With proper risk management, there is nothing to worry about; especially in the long run. Stay safe and trade safe.

With the S&P 500 currently down a whopping 23% from January’s highs this year, and other indexes close behind percentagewise, stock market […]
Yesterday, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), the Federal Reserve’s policy-making body, implemented yet another 75 basis point interest rate hike. While this move was perfectly in line with market forecasts, Chair Powell’s comments following the subsequent press conference, in which he discussed the FOMC’s new set of economic projections, were significant. He continued to […]
Statistics Canada released a surprising new batch of inflation data this morning: month-over-month CPI failed to meet market forecasts, declining by 0.3% instead of the anticipated 0.1%. Rather than being an outlier, the other measurements of CPI mostly followed suit, as both year-over-year Trimmed CPI and Median CPI likewise failed to meet expectations. Trimmed CPI’s […]
