Daily Murmur 25/10/10

 This is a chart of the U.S. dollar futures index, which is a derivative of the U.S. Dollar index.  The futures will mostly overshoot the cash index on the high and low side and it generally marks more extreme reversals so any major reversal signs are normally a leader of the cash position.  You can see last week marked a massive bullish hammer formation and typically these type of patterns become solid lows.  Based on this chart we can assume some sort of rally is likely to follow after it builds a better low, which means that the Australian dollar should weaken if this occurs.  A weaker Australian dollar has recently correlated with weaker commodity prices so our Resource sector could be vulnerable for a pullback soon.  Gold’s bearish reversal last week also confirms with this view of the U.S. dollar.
