Elliott wave Analysis: Bulls on USD Index Trading Higher, while Crude OIL Points Lower


USD Index is breaking above 96.15 meaning that wave C can be underway, or maybe even wave 3 of a new bullish run, but in both cases there is room for DXY to continue towards 97.00 projected area while market trades above 95.50. Break below that level would be a trend changer.

Crude oil made a five-wave development from the 66.64 level, which is an indication of a completed wave 5 of a higher degree, and that a new, minimum three-wave bearish reversal to the downside is unfolding. We are currently tracking a five-wave drop in wave A/1, which can be ending near the 66.00 zone. Once wave A/1 fully shows up, a new temporary correction as wave B/2 may follow, in which case the upper Elliott wave channel line connected from 76.83 high will get breached and new resistance at 69.8 or 72.2 can be seen.
