The Miners formed a swing high on Tuesday following Monday’s Gravestone Doji.
Not all swing highs mark a cycle peak, however a cycle cannot peak without printing a swing high. The Miners did deliver a clear and convincing swing high today that saw the Miners give back over 4% on the day. Tuesday was day 15 for the Miners daily cycle, which places the Miners 3 days shy of their timing band for a daily cycle low. A break of the daily cycle trend line will confirm the daily cycle decline.
The Miners have been closing above the upper daily cycle band, indicating that the Miners are in a daily uptrend. While we expect to see a break of the daily cycle trend line during the correction, as long as the Miners remain above the lower daily cycle band then they will remain solidly in a daily uptrend. Perhaps today’s swing high was the Miners sniffing out a potential daily cycle low on the dollar.
The dollar printed a lower low on Tuesday. A swing low is necessary to mark the daily cycle low. While our daily cycle count is unclear, two signals are the signals are beginning to emerge that are consistent with a daily cycle low.
