Gold has recently shown weakness, indicated by a large bearish candle yesterday.

Crude oil's market is currently at a crossroads. If it breaks below the 71.15 level, it could signal a downward trend. Currently, in terms of the overall trend, this level hasn't been significantly breached, so, for now, there's a bit more inclination towards the upside. However, it's crucial to be cautious and guard against a breakdown and potential downward movement.

Euro and Pound Sterling

The Euro has shown a breakdown, with an expectation of a short-term rebound and potential short positions, likely around 1.091. Similarly, the British Pound, following its clear decline, might rebound and present opportunities for short positions around 1.2665. 


Strategies and Outlook

Short-Term Trends

  • US Dollar: The short-term outlook seems bullish, with a focus on strength in the next few days.
  • Gold: Anticipated to continue its short rebound, with a potential short position around 2037.
  • Crude Oil: A cautious approach is advised. A rebound followed by long positions could be considered unless a direct drop below signals a bearish turn.
