[Video] Platinum Gets Hammered, Dark Clouds Remain Over MS and FedEx

The stronger dollar and more-hawkish-than-expected FOMC meeting finally saw bearish momentum force platinum prices aggressively lower. But will it continue in a straight line?

Commodities 12


We remain bearish on Morgan Stanley (MS) after it reversed at our bullish target at its Dotcom bubble high, and price action suggests it may now produce another leg lower. And the same could be said for FedEx (FDX) now its higher low is in place and it broke out of a bearish flag formation.

Elsewhere, copper futures closed beneath trendline support and gold prices blew through key support, all discussed in yesterday’s video: Is Dr Copper About to Take a Turn for the Worse? (XAU, SPX). The S&P remains beneath its pivotal resistance level, yet its Doji which closed back above the 20-day eMA suggests it may now try to break above that key level and catch up with the Nasdaq at its record highs.
