US Dollar Outlook and What it Means for Gold


 -- Published: Friday, 13 October 2017 | Print  | Disqus 

By Jordan Roy-Byrne CMT, MFTA

The US Dollar Index (USDI) bottomed in September a hair below 91.00 and has recently rallied up to 94. We were skeptical Gold would break its 2016 highs as it failed to show strong performance in the wake of the USDIís decline to new lows. The market was discounting a coming rebound in the USDI and/or future weakness in Gold. In any event, although the USDI broke key levels which leave its bull market in question, it became quite oversold and was due for a sustained rebound.

First letís look at the big picture with a monthly bar chart and the 40-month moving average. As you can see, the 40-month moving average has been an excellent trend indicator and especially since the mid 1990s. The USDI lost that support in July and in addition, made a lower low. Neither happened during the previous two bull markets.

When comparing the bull market to the recent two bull markets we find that the recent correction began at the point at which the other two bull markets advanced toward their inevitable peaks.

While the longer term trend may have turned bearish, the short-term trend may have turned bullish. The USDI could be forming a reverse head and shoulders bottom. On a close above resistance at 94, the USDI has a measured upside target of 97. That target fits very well with the long-term moving averages which are coalescing around 97. (The aforementioned 40-month moving average should reach +96 in the months ahead).   

We remain cautious on Gold in the near term as Goldís correction would continue if the US Dollar Index breaks above 94. With that said, if the USDIís primary trend has turned bearish then that certainly bodes well for precious metals and precious metals shares in 2018. If the greenback does break above 94 then we will be looking at 96 and 97 as potential levels where the rebound could reverse course. Our goal is to buy value with a catalyst or buy very oversold conditions within the junior space. This action has served us well since last December and should the USDI reach 96-97 then it could lead to low risk buying opportunities in juniors by year end. To find out the best buys right now and our favorite juniors for 2018, consider learning more about our premium service.
