Discussion of a possible impeachment action against President Donald Trump is rife in the media and seems to have spooked financial markets.
The Dollar Index fell through support at 98.50, signaling another decline. The long-term target is 93.00.
Gold rallied, breaking through resistance at $1250/ounce. Follow-through above $1300 would signal another advance, with a target of the 2016 high at $1375.
Dow Jones Industrial Average retreated from resistance at 21000. Expect a test of medium-term support at 20400. Reversal below 20000 would be cause for concern.
The S&P 500 is headed for a test of medium-term support at 2320. Breach would likewise signal a strong correction.
We are likely to get a secondary correction but I expect the bull market to continue. Impeachment of Trump would be a temporary setback and would make me more bullish on the long-term outlook.
It’s probably better to have him inside the tent pissing out,
than outside the tent pissing in.
