I just had a great question sent to me via email. Having read this blog, the gentleman asked, "Darin, Looks like the second bearish inside week in this uptrend. Any thoughts?" If you look closely, you'll see the first inside week occurred in mid-August 2014. Similar to the current inside week, that one came as the USDX was testing resistance (81.876) and weekly stochastics were above the overbought level of 80%. From there the USDX went on to extend its uptrend to last week's high of 84.519. Could a similar move be seen this time? Yes. But the difference I see is that this time around the USDX is testing major (long-term) rather than secondary (intermediate-term) resistance. We'll see in just less that 30 minutes if this pattern pans out. To the gentleman who sent in the question: Good eye and a good catch on that previous inside week.

Let me add this: If the USDX does break through and extend its rally, the next major (long-term) target is the June 2010 high of 88.708.

Time to pray for a killing frost, the farmers only hope for any kind of a fair price.The USDA cannot control the weather with their corrupt reports, only "markets" react to lies.

Update: The October feeder cattle contract posted a new high of $224.65 Friday afternoon. This now has all the pieces in place for a potential five-point top.

Higher dollar may not be sign of "higher" interest rates to come. Deflation is the sin the Fed has no/minimum control over. Policies were developed to keep deflation at bay. Low interest rates are the result of those policies. The goal is to have some inflation so they can manage/control economic growth. Commodity prices are not raising - no inflation there. Employment has bounce back but wage inflation does not seem to be occurring. France's failed policies along with trade problems with the Russia may be making the dollar a flight to "safety" play. Folks may be moving away from future EU problems. The Fed may "back off" but until commodities, inventories and/or wages have a solid move up interest rates will remain "low". A quick return to "higher" rates could/would "kill" what has taken the Fed 7-8 year to correct. Regardless of the cause and/or effect, if other markets have exportable supplies, a stronger dollar reduces our exports chances - transportation cost is also part of landed cost. Freeport, IL

I am slowly learning the value of the numerical challenges that different sides of the trade use to make decisions. While I don't always agree with their strategy, I am so thankful you break down the hieroglyphics and present it to us simple farmers. :-) Stephen
