The Week Ahead in the Financial Global Markets



From the desk of Joe Rios

The US dollar continued to climb higher but settled in consolidation mode towards the end of the week. In similar fashion Natural Gas and the Grains finished the week consolidating from previous downward trends. The stock indices broke down from support levels identified by the RQ-Channel #2. The US Treasury 10 Year Note closed the week flat while the Metals finished the week little changed. The recent volatility was welcomed by most momentum style traders. Trade opportunities were seen for intraday trading styles for both the London and US trading sessions. Last week’s price action ended like a cliffhanger, therefore I am looking forward to the week ahead in the financial markets. Which market will be in the forefront of volatility? Will the US dollar continue the uptrend or begin to consolidate? Or will profit-taking trigger a reversal? In the week ahead I will continue to focus on the stock indices and the correlations with the risk assets including Crude Oil and Copper. The Metals market should also provide intraday trading opportunities.
