Commodity chart of the day
Daily U.S. dollar index
In the last 2 months there is no denying that we've appreciated in the dollar with prices approximately 4.5% above their lows reached in late April. The question is are we running on fumes and are prices destined to turn south? As one can see prices have had trouble reclaiming the 20 day MA on the daily chart above.
My take is that we see a grind lower and will get confirmation when the white trend line is breached on the way down in the coming weeks. This is not meant for a trade recommendation in the dollar but most commodities will exhibit an inverse relationship so if this assumption is correct look for a bid in other commodities. Perhaps a long trade in energies, Ag or even other crosses would be the play.
