Lower Stock Market Is Pushing The USD Higher Against The Majors-Elliott Wave

|Includes:Randgold Resources Limited (GOLD)

European stock market is sharply lower today following yesterday sell-off on US equities after Ben Bernanke who said yesterday that if the economy continues to improve, it could start to wind down its $85 billion a month asset-purchasing program towards the end of 2013 and end it in 2014.

Metals are moving sharply lower, with gold testing now psychological level at $1300 and silver $20. We could see some technical bounce from here especially if we also consider Elliott Wave pattern which suggests that price is at the end of wave iii), now testing 261.8% Fibonacci support. As I know a lot of our clients were shorting gold since June 10. If you are one of them, then I suggest you to close some % and make very tight stops.


E-mini S&P500 is also looking weak since yesterday where we can count now five waves down from latest high. This is impulse that confirms the change in trend; from bullish to bearish mode.

EURUSD also extended its decline in the last hour or so, which means that correlation between EURUSD and stocks are normal for now. USD is safe-haven in risk-off mode so normally traders will be interested in Long USD opportunities.
