US30 - Remains Near All Time High as Fed Expected to Cut Today

 

 
In the last three weeks the US30 index has remained close to its all time high set around two weeks ago, after it has surged higher in the last month or so. Several weeks ago, the index consolidated a little in a narrow range roughly between 26500 and 26900, and it has used that period of consolidating to great effect pushing higher to the new highs. The consolidation is also of little surprise after its price action over the few weeks beforehand.

US30 - Eases from All Time High near 27000 after U.S. Job Growth Surges

 

 
In the last few days the US30 index has fallen away from its all time highs but still remained within its range from the last few weeks. Before its recent surge higher, the index has consolidated a little in a narrow range roughly between 26500 and 26900, which is little surprise after its price action over the few weeks beforehand. Several weeks ago the US30 index rallied strongly to return to back above the 25000 level and continue beyond another key level in 26000 to reach a then one month high, before consolidating a little and enjoying some support from 26000.

In the last two weeks gold has enjoyed new highs above $1400 and even though it fell sharply several days ago, it was quickly bought up and supported, pushing it back above this level. A few weeks ago, gold enjoyed a strong surge higher through resistance at the $1350 level, which had been repelling prices despite multiple rallies to push through that level, after having provided stiff resistance to gold on numerous occasions in the last couple of years. The $1350 level is now likely to offer support to gold should it decline from its current levels.

US30 - Near All Time High above 26800 as Fed May Pause on Rates

 

 
In the last couple of weeks the US30 index has consolidated a little in a narrow range roughly between 26500 and 26900, which is little surprise after its price action over the few weeks beforehand. Several weeks ago the US30 index rallied strongly to return to back above the 25000 level and continue beyond another key level in 26000 to reach a then one month high, before consolidating a little and enjoying some support from 26000. It then surged higher again to get very close to its all time high set last year, before easing a little.
