A Key US Dollar Index Indicator Has Now Triggered – Mike Swanson (04/08/2019)

We are heading for a fascinating moment in the markets. Right now people are happy that the stock market has been rallying since Christmas and all CNBC talks about is what the stock market is doing. Gold is up this morning and they won’t say a word about it even though mining stocks have been among the top sectors of the market since October 1st crushing the performance of popular stocks like Apple.

But something much more important is lining up in the currency markets that will cause an explosive rally in gold before the year is over.

Take a look at the US dollar index and how the 200-day Bollinger Band width indicator on the bottom of this chart has collapsed and flat lined.

What this indicator is showing us is that the volatility in the US dollar index has shrunk to nothing. When that happens in a market it leads to an increase in volatility – which means a big move.

The US dollar index has been churning in a range with $98 as resistance and $94 as support. When it breaks that range it will make a big move.

A close below $94 will mean a breakdown and the start of a new decline.

Since gold tends to trade opposite to the US dollar look for gold prices to explode to the upside on a US dollar close below $94.

There are a lot of reasons to think this is going to happen in the coming months.

I’ll just give you two today.

Last week Larry Kudlow – Trump’s economic advisor – got on CNBC and demanded an instant 50 point interest rate cut from the Federal Reserve to force the stock market higher.

Then on Friday Donald Trump said that he would like to see the Federal Reserve begin a new QE money printing program.

Such statements tell us where things are ultimately headed and will cause foreigners to get out of the dollar as more money printing comes online.

We’re not at that moment yet, but it’s coming. Trump wants to put Herman Cain on the Fed to yell and demand QE for him!

In time the Federal Reserve is going to be lowering interest rates and beginning a new QE. It doesn’t matter if you think it’s a good idea or not – what matters is to keep on top of what is lining up in the markets.

The US dollar index is heading to the start of a new big move and you can profit from that when it happens.

Changes are happening in the markets and I want to help you be on top of them.

Back in January I did a special give away offer for my classic book Strategic Stock Trading. I ordered a box of new books the other week to give away.

I want to send you one of them to you.

Take a look as I only got a few.

By bypassing Amazon I can give away these books myself.

You see I’m going to pay the shipping to get the book to you and got the book priced at cost. So it’s super cheap free shipping for you to put this information into your hands. And you’ll get my real trades with access to my private trading group with it. I just put a new stock in the portfolio yesterday for the group and plan on doing three more this month to take advantage of this setup in the US dollar index.
