The GBPUSD WEEKLY chart shows that the pair is likely on its way to the 1.6450-80 area that we mapped out months ago as a target if the Pound broke out of the sideways movement it has experienced for months. It too is getting close to another correction point. We will likely see a several day pullback within 24-48 hours on cable (see weekly chart below).

S&P500 and DOW popped out this last wave after a nice breakout (stopped our of our short position). So this long trade made up for that quickly! Prepare for a reversal (see weekly and daily S&P charts below).

THE VIX Volatility index appears to be making a low. A top in the equities market is likely near, at least for this leg. Look to buy some VIX CALL options or get ready to short the stocks and indexes again.

XAUUSD GOLD just hit our second recent target of 1734, and may pause here or at 1753 before trying for the 1785 price target, where we would expect a larger correction. We are still bullish long-term until the daily trends signal a major reversal. Gold weekly and daily charts are provided below.
