The US dollar has had a torrid rally. But my charts suggest a correction is due.
Maybe that is what this latest bout of currency-market volatility is telling us.
Volatility is often a precursor to a change in trend (in all time frames). We know dollar sentiment is overwhelmingly bullish – it seems a one-way bet right now. But Mr. Market is watching because he loves one-way bets.
I'm not betting big on a correction right at the moment. But I have told my subscribers to get ready. Today’s price action plus sentiment data suggest a speculative extreme may be near.
I watch open interest levels in the currency futures market. It is a good longer-term measure of sentiment. Often times, open interest reaches an extreme just ahead of a trend change. Below is a currency futures chart for the euro. The open interest level is huge and sentiment for the euro is extremely bearish:
The red circles denote peaks in open interest that corresponded with key lows in the price of the euro. Given the extreme levels, I think euro bears should be very careful.
I am monitoring the major pairs closely. Because if a correction lower in the dollar does materialize at these levels, it would likely be at a least multi-day, and probably a multi-week, event -- in other words, something playable.
Analysis like this is one way I keep my subscribers prepared. Until recently, it's been up to them to follow along and follow through.
Now, however, they don't even need to!
They can check out for a day ... a week ... or a month at a time and not have to worry about missing profit opportunities. That's because I'm launching a new auto-trading opportunity they can use to replicate the trades I recommend and execute in my personal account ... in their own accounts!
This is open to new subscribers as well. Read more about it at this link.
Thank you. And be careful out there.
