The dollar printed a bullish reversal off of the support of the 50 day MA on Monday.
Monday was day 26 for the dollar’s daily cycle. That places the dollar in its timing band for a daily cycle low. Monday’s bullish reversal eases the parameters for forming a daily swing low. A break above 101.25 will form a swing low. Then a break above the declining trend line will confirm the new daily cycle.
The dollar has established a daily uptrend. If a swing low forms then the dollar would have managed to avoid closing below the lower daily cycle band during its daily cycle decline. Which means that the dollar would remain in a daily uptrend.
Despite the dollar’s bullish reversal, gold formed a swing low on Monday.
Gold printed its lowest point on Friday, day 29. That placed gold with in its timing band for its daily cycle low. It is a bullish sign that gold managed to form a swing low as the dollar printed its bullish reversal.
However, gold faces some strong head winds now that a swing low has formed. Gold will need to break above the 50 day MA just to get started. Then break above the declining trend line, which is aligned with the declining 10 day MA, in order to confirm the new daily cycle.
Something that we need to watch is that gold had closed below the lower daily cycle band as it declined into its daily cycle low. That ended gold’s daily uptrend. If gold rallies here and it does not manage to close above the upper daily cycle band before rolling over, then it will establish a daily downtrend.
