Bearish conditions exist in currencies/metals on higher time frames, reports Trevor Smith of Trevor's Trading.
Market internals for world indices continue to be directionally mixed for the next two weeks.
Monthly/quarterly charts on the currencies are almost as bearish as the gold yearly/quarterly charts. It feels counterintuitive to write that the euro and gold could go down! The Bollinger Band candle positions for these symbols give price space to drop. Traders should monitor these symbols/time frames for trades.
Similarly, General Motors (GM) offers identical chart setups; I can hardly imagine bearish GM pricing after its recent release of EV, AV, and Vertical Takeoff-Landing Vehicle (VTOL) plans. GM plans did not mention pilot licensure! I wonder if they will solve the VTOL electric battery weight problem by moving the vehicle energy source regeneration from the vehicle itself into the external parts of downtown buildings to energize vehicles contact-free as they fly past energy-designated buildings, thus allowing more passengers/weight and reducing rooftop stress by removing the big battery.
My last article included a tagline on "bearish conditions" in "indices, metals, and crude oil", and gold was the major pullback symbol. As a follow-up geopolitical note, China and India are de-escalating, according to major news, while nations with interests in the South China Sea use strong words. Russia and the US are renewing the expiring nuclear arms treaty. Ukraine starts its political season in February likely to address peace plans amidst tugs from Russia and the European Union- both contiguous. Commodities involved include natural gas, petroleum, metals, and rare earth elements. Grains remain on monthly-chart highs.
