The bullish sentiment is extreme at the moment. Take a look at S&P 500, which is above 2,000, trading at 2,007,71. Up +0,50%. Nasdaq is up +0,45%, trading at 4,582,90. DJIA is up +0,40%, trading at 17,137,36.
Europe is in a red territory today. Dax is down -0,17%, trading at 9,730,38. CAC 40 is down -0,38%, trading at 4,469,61. FTSE 100 is down -0,97%, trading at 6,788,70, and Stoxx 50 is down -0,46%, trading at 3,260,30.
Many are bullish on gold, but keep in mind that gold is still in a bearish territory, despite the higher lows in the chart since the end of last year. I watch gold every day, and I`m looking for 1,250 – 1,270 area. In the same time, I`m looking for 1,000. It can drop down below 1,000 too.
Crude oil (brent) is trading at 100,25, down -0,57%. Silver is down below 20,00, trading at 19,23, but this precious metal is trading up today +0,39%. Another precious metal that is following silver is the copper, which is up 0,88%, trading at 319,75.
It`s interesting to watch the dollar right now. The U.S dollar index which hit another 13-month high overnight are making big moves. I follow the U.S dollar daily, because the dollar can threat the gold. Maybe the dollar is the safe heaven, and not the gold? That`s why it is important to follow those two combined.
One of the main reasons why the dollar is moving so fast now, is all the action in the EU. What happens in EU will affect the pair EUR/USD. I think that Mario Draghi will be very important for the daytraders in the future.
