 Dark Clouds & Silver Lining (Week Ahead 10th October 2021)

Brent Crude Oil Futures

Brent has so many green candles and RSI with a positive divergence near 75, this week is likely to see some consolidation to slight spike though overall trend line is bullish.

Dow Jones Transportation Average

Higher oil prices add to woes of transport as it adds to the cost of transportation though $DJT is breaking out the regression channel and reducing the gap with Dow Jones Industrial Average. This looks positive.

CBOE Market Volatility Index

Vix seems to be cooling off for the moment though through the week it is something to watch out for as we visit Job Openings (JOLT) report on Tuesday & CPI numbers for September on Wednesday.

US Dollar

USD seems to be cooling into a possible consolidation though it is too early to say and we will see a confirmation during the week.

10 Year Treasury Index

10 Year yields rose last week and the trend looks bullish though RSI looks  little oversold. The week may see it consolidating much like the USD. 

GLD & Brent

Gold tends to move in direction of Oil since both are US$ denominated and move in the same direction as inflation. While Oil has remained bullish due to OPEC decision and supply chain issues, Gold has lagged due to strong US$ and Crypto stealing some if its shine. Though this week may see some improvements in Gold. Similar patterns are observed for Ishares Silver Trust ETF – $SLV

Net Net
