The dollar printed a swing high today. If this develops some follow through and marks the cycle peak, then forming a left translated cycle is still on the table.

Gold gave back all of its gains from Tuesday.

Both gold and the Miners could be on day 19, which leaves time for another push lower.
Stocks finally gave the appearance of leaving behind a daily cycle low.
