  • Despite recent bad news, investors have been reluctant to sell out of Apple's stock, suggesting the stock is in a strong and well established trend.

  • There is a reasonable probability the U.S. dollar index will fall below 74.50 and retest the lower edge of the base of the symmetrical triangle pattern near 72.50. Traders will look for a consolidation pattern to develop between 72.50 and 74.50.

  • There is a strong downtrend in copper and it will not be easily reversed. The historical activity shows strong consistent support near $2.80 and there is a high probability this level will be tested again.

  • Historical support on the Shanghai Index is near 2,300 and the market is moving slowly towards a test of this level.

  • Gold's sudden fall from $1920 to $1630 suggests a major change in the trending behavior of gold. This trend dislocation is as severe as the trend dislocation in the Dow but it came without the same high level of warning.

    There is a high probability the uptrend for gold will continue with a retest of the highs near $1,920. The broader market indecision increases the volatility of price activity, but it does not threaten the underlying trend.

    Any fall in the euro-dollar below $1.36 has a high probability of cascading into a fall to $1.29, which in turn, will have a high probability of quickly falling into the consolidation support area with a potential downside target near $1.24.

  • The Dow appears to be consolidating with a rebound likely in the near term, says technical analyst Daryl Guppy. The blue-chip index could reach as high as 12,400 according to its chart.

  • The movement of the KOSPI is constrained by historical support and resistance levels. The most probable short-term outcome is a continuation of rapid rally and retreat behavior inside the trading band between 1,720 and 1,900.

  • Will Friday's meeting at Jackson Hole dig markets deeper into a hole, or get the U.S. out of one? The early signs will come from the Nasdaq, rather than the Dow and the index could tumble if the results of the meeting disappoint.
