Can The Dollar Fall Enough To Save The Day?

Once again, the U.S. Dollar Index (DX-M2) is declining lower after the opening bell rings at the New York Stock Exchange. This happens very often when the major stock indexes are breaking lower. You see, when the dollar declines everything in the stock and commodity markets will inflate and trade higher. Just the opposite will happen when the U.S. Dollar Index rallies, the stock markets will decline and deflate lower.



As you all know by now, J.P. Morgan Chase…

Here Is The Chart That Saves The Markets Everyday

Nearly everyday, the U.S. Dollar Index (DX-M2) will decline after the opening bell rings at the New York Stock Exchange. Today is a perfect example of how the U.S. Dollar Index will sell off when the major stock indexes are close to a break down. Earlier today, the European markets were coming under some heavy selling pressure. The selling was also picking up in the U.S. markets, however, once the dollar declined the major stock indexes in the U.S. rallied back. Tomorrow, Spain is…

The U.S. Dollar Index Drives Every Move

Once again, the U.S. Dollar Index futures (DX H2) declined at 9:30am EST to help keep the major stock indexes from declining further. Nearly every trading day that the U.S. Dollar Index starts the day higher; then proceeds to fade once the stock market opens. Traders must remember, if the U.S. Dollar Index rallies higher throughout the trading day the major stock indexes will likely come under some selling pressure. The trading volume is extremely light today as the majority of market…

Mirror Opposites

The chart below basically says it all. The green and red bars represent the U.S. Dollar Index futures (DX H2), the black and white bars represent the S&P 500 Index e-mini futures (ES H2).

This critically important chart tells us the direction of the stock market. At this time, the stock market cannot trade higher with a stronger U.S. Dollar…

Here Is The Rally In A Nutshell

If you look at a chart of the U.S. Dollar Index futures (DX Z1) this morning you will see the sharp decline. If traders simply flip this chart upside down you will notice that the chart will resemble the S&P 500 Index today. When the dollar dips the markets flip. Traders should watch for some short term intra-day support on the U.S. Dollar Index futures around the $77.25 area. The U.S. Dollar Index chart is probably one of the most important charts that a trader could follow as the…

Berlusconi Bounce Or Just Another U.S. Dollar Decline?

The major stock indexes have played out just the same way they did yesterday. The markets sold off into the noon hour only to reverse and trade sharply higher throughout the afternoon. The intra-day pivot points and the chart patterns in the session are almost exactly the same as yesterday. The catalyst for the stock market rally was once again the declining U.S. Dollar Index. The U.S. Dollar Index plummeted lower when the Prime Minister of Italy, Silvio Berlusconi, said that he may…

Keep This Chart On The Screen At All Times

The only chart that traders need to pay attention to is the chart of the U.S. Dollar Index (DXY). When the U.S. Dollar Index declines throughout the trading session the major stock market indexes will inflate and trade higher. Obviously, leading commodity and energy stocks such as Cliffs Natural Resources Inc (NYSE:CLF) BHP Billiton Ltd (NYSE:BHP), and Chevron Corp (NYSE:CVX) will be some of the first stocks to react and trade inverse to the U.S. Dollar Index. It is important to note…

The Falling U.S. Dollar Index Comes To The Rescue Again

Once again, the decline in the U.S. Dollar Index futures (DX Z1) has saved the major stock indexes from another sharp decline. Traders can easily see that the U.S. Dollar Index futures topped out at 10:00 am EST. At the same time, the major stock market indexes found a low and have rebounded higher. The SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average (NYSE:DIA) traded as low as $118.17 at 10:00 am EST, however, it is now trading at $119.32 since the U.S. Dollar Index declined. These are big…

Forget Europe, Watch This Chart

The U.S. Dollar Index futures (DX Z1) just fell off a cliff before the opening bell. When the U.S. Dollar Index declines the major stock indexes will inflate and trade higher. You see, nobody really cares about the poor earnings reaction to Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN), and Broadcom Corp (NASDAQ:BRCM) earnings. The markets are simply reacting to the action in the U.S. Dollar Index. When the U.S. Dollar Index declines the major stock indexes inflate higher, however, if the U.S. Dollar…

Schizophrenic Market

This stock market seems to have an illness called schizophrenia. In late September, the major stock indexes declined lower, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped by over 1000.0 points only to recapture all of those declines in 15 trading days in the month of October. Ten percent rallies and declines are becoming normal trading ranges these days. In the past, the stock markets would rally higher or lower by ten percent in a year. These are certainly not normal times.…

Markets Rally Again, Here Is One Reason Why

This morning, the major stock indexes are trading higher continuing the gains from last week. The catalyst for the move higher in the stock market is once again the declining U.S. Dollar Index futures (DX Z1). Since the opening bell the DXY has sold off sharply. Traders should know by now, once the U.S. Dollar Index (DXY) declines the major stock indexes will inflate and trade higher and vice versa.



It seems that everything will inflate and trade higher with a…

It Happened Again

Once again, the major stock indexes reversed an early decline. The rally in the S&P 500 Index came as the U.S. Dollar Index futures (DX Z1) plummeted around the noon hour. The inverse relationship between the U.S. Dollar Index and the major stock indexes continues to occur every single trading day. As long as the U.S. Dollar remains weak the major stock indexes will inflate and trade higher. In essence, every trade is a trade on the U.S. Dollar Index at this time.…

Mirror Opposites

This morning and almost every morning for that matter, the major stock market indexes continue to trade inverse to the U.S. Dollar Index (DXY). Traders do not need to listen to the news coming out of Europe or Asia, they simply just need to follow the U.S. Dollar Index. When the DXY declines the stocks markets will inflate and trade higher. The opposite is true when the DXY trades higher, the major stock indexes will deflate and trade lower. Simply put, the U.S. Dollar Index is used like a…

The Chart Tells Us Everything

The major stock indexes continue to trade inverse to the U.S. Dollar Index. As soon as the opening bell rings at the New York Stock Exchange traders should simply follow a chart of the U.S. Dollar Index futures (DX Z1), or the PowerShares DB US Dollar Index Bullish (NYSE:UUP). When the U.S. Dollar Index dips the major stock indexes will inflate and trade higher. The opposite is true when the U.S. Dollar Index rallies or trade higher as the major stock indexes will usually decline and… Continue

Pick Your Poison

In order for the stock market to rally or trade higher the U.S. Dollar Index has to decline. This has been proven repeatedly over the past ten years. Traders can simply look at an intra-day chart of the U.S. Dollar Index and see how quickly the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average (NYSE:DIA) will deflate and trade lower as soon as the U.S. Dollar Index catches a bid higher. This afternoon, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) was trading higher by more than 300.0 points, as soon as the… Continue

Falling U.S. Dollar Saves The Day

It is pretty sad when the only way to get the stock market to trade higher is by selling off the U.S. Dollar Index (DX Z1). The U.S. Dollar Index measures the value of the U.S. Dollar versus six leading currencies such as the Euro 58.6%, Japanese Yen 12.6 %, Pound Sterling 11.9%, Canadian Dollar 9.1%, Swedish Krona 4.2%, and the Swiss Franc 3.6%. When the world's reserve currency declines the major stock indexes will inflate and trade higher. Politicians continue to say that they want a… Continue

Watch This Chart, Things Could Get Crazy

This morning, the central bankers of the world have staged a coordinated effort to provide U.S. Dollar liquidity. In other words, the central banks will try to crush the U.S. Dollar in order to inflate the stock market higher. Traders must continue to watch a chart of the U.S. Dollar Index very closely. Over the past three trading sessions the U.S. Dollar Index has declined sharply causing the stock markets to inflate and stage a three day rally. Simply put, the U.S. Dollar Index is… Continue

Forget The European Ménage à trois Here Is The Reason For The Rally

The major stock indexes have soared sharply higher this afternoon. The catalyst for the rally according to the media is the fact that Germany's Angela Merkel, France's Nicolas Sarkozy, and Greece's George Papandreou all agree that Greece should be part of the European Union. Greek bond yields are now favoring that Greece will eventually have to default, however, many investors are now speculating that Europe will introduce its own form of the bank bailout plan called TARP. While this news… Continue

A Bite Out Of The Apple

Once again, the S&P 500 Index is trading inverse to the U.S. Dollar Index. Traders can clearly look at the chart below and see how the major stock indexes deflate as soon as the U.S. Dollar Index trades higher. While this inverse relationship has been intact for over ten years, it is even more correlated these days.



Traders must watch the leading commodity and energy stocks closely when the U.S. Dollar Index trades higher. These stocks are the most susceptible to a decline…

Early Market Strength, Here Is Why

This morning, all of the major stock indexes are trading sharply higher. Traders and investors are in jubilee mode as there were a few take over announcements before the opening bell. Obviously, the major news was the Google Inc.(NASDAQ:GOOG) buyout of Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc.(NYSE:MMI) for $12.5 billion. While the take over news is dominating the headlines traders should continue to follow the U.S. Dollar Index.



The U.S. Dollar Index futures (DX U1) are trading lower by…
