Some additional insights from today’s video:

  • The U.S. Dollar was up again today; it has bounced for the past week and touched a 3-month intraday high.
  • Gold struggled today as a result of the strong Dollar; crude oil finished barely in the green but remains in a significant multi-week downtrend.
  • South African stocks have a bullish posture and are attempting a multi-month reversal bottoming pattern.
  • Stocks in Mexico, Canada, and Germany remain in significant downtrends.
  • Our trade application example focused on doing a long call vertical spread on Hologic Inc (HOLX), which touched a 3-month high today and has been exhibiting excellent relative strength.
