Cycle Analysis

We are 23 sessions into the beta phase rally of the cycle following the short-term cycle low (STCL) on April 13. The beta high (BH) may have formed on June 19, although we would need to see additional weakness to confirm that development. The magnitude and duration of the current beta phase rally reconfirms the current bullish translation and favors additional short-term strength. The window during which the next STCL is likely to occur is now through June 26.

  • Last STCL: April 13, 2017

  • Cycle Duration: 47 sessions

  • Cycle Translation: Bullish

  • Next STCL Window: Now through June 26.

  • Setup Status: No active setups.

  • Trigger Status: No pending triggers.

  • Signal Status: No active signals.

  • Stop Level: None active.

Short-term Outlook

  • Bullish Scenario: A close above the recent short-term high at 2,433 would reconfirm the long-term uptrend and forecast additional gains.

  • Bearish Scenario: A reversal and close well below uptrend support near 2,380 would signal the likely start of a new downtrend and predict additional losses.

The bullish scenario is more likely (~70% probable).

Cycle Analysis

We are 5 sessions into the decline phase of the cycle following the short-term cycle high (STCH) on June 13. The alpha low (AL) may have formed on June 14, although we would need to see additional strength to confirm that development. The quick reversal reconfirms the current bearish translation and favors additional short-term weakness. The window during which the next STCH is likely to occur is from July 5 to July 25, with our best estimate being in the July 11 to July 17 range.

  • Last STCH: June 13, 2017

  • Cycle Duration: 5 sessions

  • Cycle Translation: Bearish

  • Next STCH Window: July 5 to July 25; best estimate in the July 11 to July 17 range.

  • Setup Status: No active setups.

  • Trigger Status: No pending triggers.

  • Signal Status: No active signals.

  • Stop Level: None active.

Short-term Outlook

  • Bullish Scenario: A rebound and close above downtrend resistance at 2.28% would predict a return to the previous short-term high at 2.41%.

  • Bearish Scenario: A close below the recent short-term low at 2.13% would reconfirm the downtrend from March and predict additional losses.

The bearish scenario is slightly more likely (~60% probable).

US Dollar Index Daily Chart Analyses

The following technical and cycle analyses provide short-term forecasts for the US dollar index. For intermediate-term outlooks see the latest intermediate-term forecast and for long-term outlooks see the latest long-term forecast.

Cycle Analysis

We are 10 sessions into the rally phase of the cycle following the short-term cycle low (STCL) on June 7. The magnitude and duration of the last alpha phase decline reconfirms the current bearish translation and favors additional short-term weakness. The window during which the next STCL is likely to occur is from June 30 to July 17, with our best estimate being in the July 6 to July 12 range.

  • Last STCL: June 7, 2017

  • Cycle Duration: 10 sessions

  • Cycle Translation: Bearish

  • Next STCL Window: June 30 to July 17; best estimate in the July 6 to July 12 range.

Short-term Outlook

  • Bullish Scenario: A close well above congestion resistance in the 97.50 area would predict a move up toward the previous short-term high at 99.56.

  • Bearish Scenario: A reversal and close below the recent low at 96.59 would reconfirm the downtrend from January and predict additional losses.

Both scenarios are equally likely.

The following technical and cycle analyses provide short-term forecasts for the gold market. For intermediate-term outlooks see the latest intermediate-term forecast and for long-term outlooks see the latest long-term forecast.

Cycle Analysis

We are 10 sessions into the beta phase decline of the cycle following the short-term cycle low (STCL) on May 9. Cycle translation is in question. A quick rebound followed by an extended alpha phase rally that moves up to new short-term highs would reconfirm the current bullish translation and favor additional short-term strength. Alternatively, an extended beta phase decline that moves well below the last STCL at 1,216 would signal the likely transition to a bearish translation. The window during which the next STCL is likely to occur is now through June 21.

  • Last STCL: May 9, 2017

  • Cycle Duration: 29 sessions

  • Cycle Translation: Bullish

  • Next STCL Window: Now through June 21.

  • Setup Status: No active setups.

  • Trigger Status: No pending triggers.

  • Signal Status: No active signals.

  • Stop Level: None active.

Short-term Outlook

  • Bullish Scenario: A rebound and close above the previous short-term high at 1,298 would reconfirm the uptrend from December and forecast additional gains.

  • Bearish Scenario: A close below current levels would predict a move down toward congestion support in the 1,220 area.

The bearish scenario is more likely (~70% probable).
