The Situation

​​​​In these Greedy times (good to know that​​ the Fear and Greed Index
​from CNN Money is coming from the Fear Zone three weeks ago to the
​Extreme Greed Level now at 87).
It is interesting to look the behavior
​(correlation) ​of the US Dollar ​​(USD-DXY) ​and the Mighty ​SP500 Index.


​​​​As shown by the chart below, this correlation tells that the risks have
​not ​started ​to be fully priced into the foreign exchange market yet in
​terms of volatility: expect more volatility in the US Dollar and SP500 in the next few sessions...​​


​​​​DXY/SP500 correlation getting near the -0.70 zone, ​indicating higher volatility ahead as history suggest... 
(See first chart below - Middle Panel - Blue Area - Vertical Lines)

​​​The US Dollar Index just broke the resistance of a tiny rising wedge. (See first chart below - Top Panel - Ellipse) but most importantly getting near the Major Resistance Trendline that started back since December 2 2015 (See first chart below - Top Panel - Top Grey Trendline): Breaking that Resistance Trendline will increase tremendously the Volatility of all US Financials Assets. 

For the SP500 index, it started a Bullish Trend from the post-Brexit panic on June 27 2016 to make a Breakout on July 8 2016 (from a Major Resistance Trendline that started back on May 20 2015)​.

(See first chart below - Bottom Panel - Thick Grey Trendline)

But very few of us realize that for a foreigner looking at the SP500 Index on a Macro Basis (so in US Dollar Index - DXY times the SP500 Index) we did not reach yet a new high ever (highest ever was November 30 2015) but​​ very close of that resistance trendline that started back in March 2015.
