GOLD, COPPER, BRENT, WHEAT, SOYB, XEU, SPX and USB Daily Update (based on previous business day)

Weekly Time Frame Trading & Investing

GOLD @1.125. (GOLD Weekly Chart).
Weekly SMA-55 negative and Channel downslope.
TTIP mode since 31-07-2015 as of 1.095.
Last TTIP mode since 15-07-2015 as of 1.148,50 ended 17-07-2015 as of 1.132,30 with a profit of 1,41%.
Notes: GOLD hardly moved up during the stockmarket panic. This confirms my view GOLD is weak and is therefore likely to hit the 1.000 to 1.050 support range in the foreseeable future.

COPPER @ 2,33. (COPPER Weekly Chart).
Weekly SMA-55 negative and Channel downslope.
CTP mode (early termination).
Last TTIP mode since 23-07-2015 as of 2,38 ended 04-08-2015 as of 2,35 with a profit of 1,26%.
Notes: Economic commodities are weak. Copper will probably stay so for some time to come.

BRENT @ 47,72. (BRENT Weekly Chart).
Weekly SMA-55 negative and Channel neutral.
CTP mode.
Last TTIP mode since 03-11-2014 as of 84,78 ended 28-11-2014 as of 70,15 with a profit of 17,26%.
Notes: Economic commodities are weak. However Brent was extremely oversold. I think we have seen the lows for the foreseeable future. For the next couple of years I would expect Brent to gyrate between $50 and $75.

WHEAT @ 489,75. (WHEAT Weekly Chart).
Weekly SMA-55 negative and Channel upslope.
TTIP mode since 01-12-2014 as of 607,25.
Last TTIP mode since 17-10-2014 as of 517,50 ended 23-10-2014 as of 526 with a loss of 1,64%.
Notes: Wheat seems to have made an important low. Will we retest the recent low of 466? I don't think so. I'm looking for strength further down the road.

SOYB @ 877,75. (SOYB Weekly Chart).
Weekly SMA-55 negative and Channel neutral.
CTP mode.
Last TTIP mode since 02-01-2015 as of 1.007 ended 20-01-2015 as of 981,75 with a profit of 2,51%.
Notes: Soybeans seem to have made an important low. Will we retest the recent low of 904? I don't think so. I'm looking for strength further down the road.

XEU @ 112,44. (XEU Weekly Chart).
Weekly SMA-55 negative and Channel neutral.
CTP mode.
Last TTIP mode since 26-09-2014 as of 126,93 ended 30-10-2014 as of 126,14 wit a profit of 0,62%.
Notes: Euro is weak and US Dollar is strong. I am waiting for reversal signs.

SPX @ 1.987,66. (SPX Weekly Chart).
Weekly SMA-55 negative and Channel downslope.
CTP mode (S-P-R ratio not short supportive).
Last TTIP mode since 25-11-2014 as of 2.067,03 ended 05-03-2015 as of 2.101,04 with a profit of 1,65%.
Notes: The forecasted correction during the May-August 2015 period has materialized. And will probably last longer then originally foreseen. Consolidation may be of a bigger order and last well into 2016.

USB @ 155,21. (USB Weekly Chart).
Weekly SMA-55 positive and Channel downslope.
CTP mode.
Last TTIP mode since 07-08-2014 as of 138,40 ended 12-09-2014 as of 136,23 with a loss of 1,57%.
Notes: Rumour has it China is liquidating US Treasuries to support the Yuan. This will result in lower bond prices and higher bond yields.
