Last week, US Financial Markets were under pressure as Geo-Political risk
increased and the US Dollar Index (DXY) rose mainly on a more Hawkish
FED Officials and US rates differential:​​
​Yield Divide Emerges as Key Driver of Dollar Strength Versus Yen

​​Some Technical Charts and Short Comments on US financial products:
​1) SPY ETF (SPDR S&P 500 ETF)  is still into a Weekly Downtrend Channel
​and tested last week a Major Support Trendline that stared back since
​February 8 2016 week. (
See first chart below, Grey trendline - Ellipse)​​

2) ​QQQ ETF (NASDAQ- 100 Index Tracking Stock) broke a Weekly Support
​Trendline from a steep Rising Wedge. Quite surprising as Apple shares did
quite well in that turmoil​ and is 11.38% of the QQQ ETF.
(See second chart below - Blue trendline - Ellipse)​

​3) DIA ETF (SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF) is in process of
breaking the Weekly Support Trendline from a Rising Wedge.
(See third chart below - Left - Blue trendline - Ellipse)​​

4) TWOK ETF (SPDR Russell 2000 ETF) broke two weeks ago a steep Rising Wedge Support Trendline.
(See fourth chart below - Right - Blue Trendline - Ellipse)

​​​5) DXY Index (US Dollar Index) broke a Major Weekly Resistance Trendline from a Falling Wedge.
(See fifth chart below - Blue Trendline - Ellipse)​

6) TLT ETF (iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF) broke a Weekly Support Trendline (previous breakout Trendline). Also testing the 200 DMA (Day Moving Average).  (See sixth chart below - Red Trendline - Ellipse)​​
7) VIX Index (​SP500 Volatility-CBOE) is still trading within a Weekly Falling Wedge. (See seventh chart below).

8) Gold Futures (GC1-COMEX) broke s Weekly Channel Support two weeks ago and is trying to consolidate at the 200 DMA. (See eight chart below - Blue trendline - Ellipse)

​​Very atypical Markets; US $ up, oil up, gold down and US stocks and bonds down....
