dollar breaks critical support level

What was the U.S. Dollar's Critical Support Level?

The $91.00 price level.

The price support level has been in existence since January 2nd, 2015 when the dollar was consistently hitting new highs.

Then the dollar traded well above the level for more than two years before it tested the level last September.

But the news over the last several weeks has proven to be too much for the dollar, below are some of the news events that have helped drive the dollar below the $91.00 price level.

01/10/2018: "China Weighs Slowing or Halting Purchases of U.S. Treasuries " - Bloomberg

02/15/2018: US inflation surprise lights fire under gold price - MINING

The U.S. Dollar fell through the $91.00 price level on January 15, 2018, and although I wrote about my expectations for the dollar's rebound in my last blog post titled: Waiting on the Inevitable, the following was written in the dollar's outlook section two weeks ago:

To be honest, I'll be surprised if it rebounds above the upper trend-line of the 'Falling Expanding Wedge' (as it should) simply because of the damage that has been done to the dollar's technical support levels.

The $91.00 price level isn't the only price level that's been broken over the last several weeks, however, the fact that it was tested last September helped to confirm the level as a critical support level for the U.S. Dollar.

But now that the level has been broken, it has turned into a strong resistance level for the dollar.

The U.S. Dollar's next critical support level sits at the $87.00 price level.

In Review - 2 weeks ago

Two weeks ago, I wrote the following outlook for the U.S. Dollar and posted the chart below.

The dollar is still expected to rebound, it's been beaten down and is trading deep in oversold territory, so a rebound is still expected.

To be honest, I'll be surprised if it rebounds above the upper trend-line of the 'Falling Expanding Wedge' (as it should) simply because of the damage that has been done to the dollar's technical support levels.

However, the pattern is still the most dominant pattern in the U.S. Dollar's chart, so until a new pattern appears a rebound in the dollar's price is still expected.

In Review continued

As you can see in the chart below, the dollar did rebound, but it could not find the strength to close above the $90.40 price level.

In addition, the Falling Expanding Wedge is still intact, but it could be fading away.

U.S. Dollar - Outlook

In the outlook chart below, the 'Falling Expanding Wedge' is still intact, but,  I have faded its labeling and dotted its trend-lines because the positive pattern may not play-out as expected, but that scenario is doubtful.

The dollar should confirm or deny the pattern sometime in the future, the question is; When?  

But now, a new 'Falling Expanding Wedge' has formed in the dollar's chart.

The new positive wedge pattern is steep and narrow, so barring any unexpected news, the dollar should confirm it sometime in the near future.

However, the dollar's MACD and RSI are giving very little indication as to which way the dollar will move, so perhaps the dollar will break the new pattern soon, or it may continue its fall inside this new pattern like it did the older one, time will tell.

Two weeks ago, the outlook below was posted for silver and the chart below.

In silver's outlook chart below, you can see that a new and larger 'Falling Wedge' has formed in its price chart.

This is a positive pattern, but because of the broadness of the wedge, the price of silver is expected to trade inside it before it breaks above the upper trend-line.

The question now is: When will it break the upper trend-line of the positive wedge?

That I can't tell you, time will tell.

In Review - continued

Late last week, the price of silver closed above the 'Falling Wedge' confirming the positive pattern, before it fell back below it.

Silver Price Chart

Silver - Outlook

For the week to come, silver has formed a Rising Expanding Wedge.

As the chart suggests, silver's price could confirm the negative wedge pattern very soon, or we could see the price of silver bounce around inside the pattern before it confirms it.

Either way, as the negative pattern suggests, a dip in silver's price should happen sometime in its short-term trade.

In Review

Below, is what was written in the gold outlook from two weeks ago and its corresponding gold chart is below it.

In the gold outlook chart below, gold has formed a positive 'Falling Wedge' pattern.'

The pattern is very broad, so gold clearly has some room to trade inside it, however it could break above it in the near future.

But, gold's MACD and RSI are not giving this indication, instead they are showing that the price of gold will likely pullback more in price and trade inside the wedge before it confirms it by breaking the Falling Wedge's upper trend-line.

In Review - continued

As mentioned in the outlook from two weeks ago (above), the price of gold did trade inside the 'Falling Wedge' before confirming the positive pattern late last week.

Gold - Outlook

Like silver, gold has also formed a 'Rising Expanding Wedge,' it's a little broader than silver's wedge, so it isn't expected to confirm it as soon as silver is expected to confirm its negative wedge.

In addition, much like the dollar's MACD and RSI, gold's lower indicators are offering very little indication as to which way the price of gold will move in the near future.

So, for the next week or two, we should see gold's price move inside the negative wedge, before it confirms it.
