    .....in the week to clients, Twitter, Aspen Blog, a break of a support/resistance level does not always create a binary outcome - thus the 93.92 break merely turned me 'neutral' but now bullish....

    Post NFP Update: DXC strength appears real - way too much bearishness earlier in week - many caught short 'dollar' on mid-week break. I/clients started buying USD today. As I noted earlier.....

    Dave do you think with strength in the USD we should see a break lower in the commodity rally and EM? If so, Don't you think that TLT moves higher risk off trade?

    What is strange is not that he is bullish gold and dollar, but that he is bullish gold and bearish CHF. I don't think that has ever happened....

    It looks like to me the dollar is breaking down. I think most people are expecting a dollar rally but I am not buying it anymore. Everyone is on the wrong side of the trade.

    Interesting that he thinks the dollar and gold with both go higher. Many people believe this can't happen, but there are a few times in history that it has.

    Dave, Re: the TLT and DX-Y levels breaking; do intraday breaks matter in EW? or will the close be of more importance. In other words, if we end up closing above: TLT $129, and DX-Y $93.92? Thanks

    TLT has broken lower from the $129 resistance and DXC has broken the cited low/support at 93.92 - clarity and no clarity respectively...welcome to 2016 trading!

    Always great to have experts do the technical analysis for us! Even better when it points to higher gold prices but let's not get ahead of ourselves. Thanks again Dave!
