As in many environments showing technical divergence with a strong positive trend, we headed to new highs before dipping back into congestion where we now hold heading into the overnight. The battleground of support sits near 3332-3337. The whipsaw widens the trading ranges and could easily deliver a deeper dip before stabilizing at these higher regions. Higher lows seem to be more likely to hold as the trend remains strong.

COMMODITY & CURRENCY WATCH
Gold has broken back above 1563 confirming the rounding bottom we were watching. If the participants fail to hold this region near 1556, we will focus on 1536 once more – and holding over 1570 could easily go to 1581. The US dollar is holding over 98 once again – the levels near 97.5 hold as support- as momentum builds to the bullish side, it seems like a press to 99 is on the horizon. WTI held deep monthly support regions and working on holding higher support near 51.
TRADING VIEW & ACTION PLAN
We are still looking at choppy news-driven markets after our deep fade recovers and sends us to new highs under technical divergence. SIGNAL LIGHTS ARE YELLOW-but much more bullish than before so look for higher lows at the first passes from resistance to support.
The theme of INTRADAY motion is: BREAKOUT under technical divergence
POSITIVE AS LONG AS WE HOLD ABOVE 3337.75ish today (with big spikes likely with shallow fades back into breakout)
CHOPPY BETWEEN 3312 AND 3346.75
NEGATIVE AS LONG AS WE HOLD BELOW 3314ish today (with sharp bounces failing and deep pullbacks holding)– choppy inside the range.
