The nerves of investors are getting more and more heated. Markets are growing, and fear is spreading over them. The number of S&P 500 short orders has fallen to its lowest level since 2007. That is, on the one hand, everyone is tired of playing against the trend. On the other hand, everyone understands that at any moment they will have to flee the stock market.

Chart of the day S&P500


Above is the 15-minute chart on the S&P500 future. It perfectly shows the gravity of the situation. The American trading session has opened, the price has hardly moved for half an hour, followed by 3 red candlesticks. In 45 minutes the market fell more than in the previous 7 trading days. What if the fall had continued for another 45 minutes? The situation is getting more serious.


The European currency refuses to decline further against the dollar. And the Japanese yen and the pound are even growing significantly against the dollar. This is a strong signal that the EUR has been very strongly oversold in the last couple of weeks. If it bounces back against the dollar on Friday, then a very strong takeout of the short traders might happen before the weekend.


The price of gold reached $ 1623 per troy ounce, then fell slightly by the close of trading. The market came out of the sideways, where it had been for several months and started a new powerful trend. The first target will be the historic high, which was shown at the beginning of the last decade. And the second, more than anyone expected, is a $2,000 level.



Judging by the technical analysis, a short-term oil peak has been formed yesterday. After the morning growth, the price fell to the level of trading beginning. The trend is exhaled. It can only be supported by increasing tension between Turkey and Syria.
