XAU/USD - bullish breakout; 1,452 is the key (based on the article)

XAU/USD Ichimoku MTF chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Price is approach the upper bounds of this consolidation range with daily resistance steady at the August 2013 high at 1433. A breach / close above this threshold is needed to validate the breakout with such a scenario eyeing subsequent resistance targets at 1451 backed by the 50% retracement of the decline off the record highs at 1483."
  • "Notes: A closer look at gold price action shows gold breaking above the weekly opening-range highs on an outside-day reversal candle yesterday with price defending weekly open support today at 1415. The focus is on a breach above consolidation resistance at 1433/35 to keep the long-bias in play targeting 1441 and 1451. Monthly open support rests at 1409 backed by 1440 – ultimately a break / close below the July support line, currently ~1390 needed to suggest a larger correction is underway."

WTI Crude Oil - ranging to breakdown; 54.72 is the key (based on  the article)

WTI Crude Oil chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Oil is up 0.83 percent today and trying to recover its steepest weekly decline (down nearly 7%, something which was not witnessed since May), and is still set to close the week lower. However, WTI is up 17.21 percent year-to-date and Brent has soared 14.26 percent YTD. The below chart shows the weekly percentage loss for WTI."
  • "Looking at the speculative market, it is evidently clear that the hedge funds are no longer interested in opening any new long oil positions. The chart below shows that the net short and long WTI positions by hedge funds. It is important to keep in mind that this data is as of July 7, so the recent situation isn't clearly reflected in this data, but one cannot ignore the fact that long speculative positions on oil have fallen to their lowest level since 2013."

DAX Index - bullish ranging within the levels for direction (based on  the article)

DAX Index chart by Metatrader 5

  • "After falling out of an ascending channel, the DAX 30 has broken through multiple levels of subsequent support. Now, the Index looks to test a final level of nearby support around 12,200. Should the horizontal support fail, secondary resistance around 12,050 may come into play. After bleeding lower during July, the DAX may look to consolidate around the ascending trendline beneath before resuming its climb higher."

Dow Jones Industrial Average - bullish ranging; 27,401 is the key (based on   the article)

Dow Jones Industrial Average chart by Metatrader 5

  • "The Dow Jones is within reach of all-time highs around 27,400 but nearby resistance could look to hold the Industrial Average in check. The ascending trendline marked by highs in February and April refuted price early last week but consolidation and an encouraging fundamental backdrop could see the level break upon renewed attempts. Immediate support may be enjoyed at the 27,260 level but its proximity to Friday’s close is concerning. Consequently, potential support at the 26,945 and 26,705 levels should be looked to if the initial zone succumbs to selling pressure."

Dollar Index (DXY) - ranging near reversal for direction (based on the article)

Dollar Index (DXY) chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Despite the dovish shift in US monetary policy expectations this year, the Dollar has held up remarkably well. Though the world’s most liquid currency has been in a choppy range as of late if you single out DXY. Examining an average of its performance versus the Euro, Japanese Yen, British Pound and Australian Dollar can help to find a clearer trend."
  • "The Dollar is still some ways away from a breakout in the context of this pattern, be it higher or lower as support held this past week around 1.2912. But, if it holds, it could carry bullish implications in the medium term while near-term price action acts as noise. In the event triangle floor is tested, the next psychological area below seems to be 1.2798 which is the late June lows."

Crypto News - Bitcoin: bullish correction; 9,074 is the key (based on  the article)

Bitcoin/USD daily chart by Metatrader 5

  • "The price of Bitcoin (BTC) has drifted considerably lower since its impressive stretch of gains recorded during the first half of the year. While BTC currently trades around $10,300 – down about 25% from its 2019 high inked last month – the cryptocurrency threatens to rebound higher with a bounce off near-side technical support."
  • "The recent pullback in Bitcoin, although worrisome on the surface, could be a constructive pattern of consolidation for bullish momentum to continue. This is suggested by the bull flag forming on the daily BTC price chart which is highlighted above. Additionally, prospects for a bounce higher in bitcoin is also posed by BTC price action hovering around the critical level of technical support at $10,000. 
    This psychologically-significant area of confluence is highlighted by bullish trend support and the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of the cryptocurrency’s year-to-date trading range. Although BTC dipped below this support zone last week, the move to the downside seemingly lacked conviction as the cryptocurrency quickly rebounded."
