U.S. Stock Market

Maintaining these conditions may take it higher towards 23,400. However, with the RSI indicator below 50, a drop towards 23,150 can be expected.

Tesla fell, closing at $315.00. On the 8-hour chart, Tesla is trading above the resistance line at $299.00, and is expected to rise to around $325.00. However, crossing below the line could take it down towards $305.00.

U.S. Dollar

The U.S. dollar fell against a basket of major currencies on Friday, as better-than-expected housing data failed to offset renewed political uncertainty in Washington amid reports to issue fresh subpoenas for the Trump campaign.


Last : 1,292

Gold rose, closing at $1,292. On the 8-hour chart, gold is trading negatively below the resistance level at $1,302. Holding below the resistance may lead to a drop towards $1,282. However, breaching above the line could cause a reversal and a rise towards $1,302.

Crude Oil

Last : 56.78

Crude Oil rose but failed to offset a weekly loss as investors weighed rising US output amid a fall in expectations that OPEC will extend its deal to curb output. On the Daily chart, oil is trading in an ascending channel. Holding these conditions, we might see a rise towards $58.50, while crossing the lower line of the channel may start a reversal towards $53.00.
