Commodities: Economic Indicators You Can’t Ignore
Greg Schnell | November 18, 2022 at 11:35 AM
The commodities tried to rally but stalled this week at very important technical locations.
Commodity ETF DBC
For example the DBC weekly chart doesn’t look very good.
- The SCTR is plummeting after 1.5 years of strength.
- 1st red candle since October started.
- Relative strength in purple breaking
- No volume
- PPO momentum right at zero and struggling to go higher.
Looking at XOP
Oil exploration companies are struggling to take out the spring highs. We have been here for three weeks.
- Testing a prior high and struggling. Not uncommon, but hardly euphoric based on what the indexes are doing. DIA is up 20% off the lows.
- First blue candle at least hints at a weakening trend.
- No volume coming in
- PPO losing upside momentum
I would say this is still a strong chart but based on the DBC chart above it is worth watching closely.
I was so thrilled to see copper break out, only to see copper miners bang their heads on the 40 WMA. Important resistance until broken. SCTR ranking failing to hold up. The PPO is below zero and needs to continue to accelerate higher.
For me, it is starting to look a lot less likely that commodities can soar. One week doesn’t make a trend. I’ll have a lot more on my weekend newsletter. Critically important that we understand the economic indicators like housing, copper, oil, including commodities in general.

MOMENTUM ALERT SIGNALS
The main focus of the SetYourStop Slack workspace is the momentum scanner that was developed to trace abnormal volatility in the Canadian equity market.
Our proprietary momentum scan system searches for abnormal volatility which flags the urgency of buyers. It was designed to signal the potential of momentum coming into an underlying name or sector. The charts issued are to be used as indicators only, not a trigger to buy or sell.– Disclaimer
Once a chart is received, systematic rules are to be used, implemented by the individual (SetYourStop nor ospreystrategic.org holds No Responsibility for one’s actions as the charts given on SetYourStop and ospreystrategic.org are to be used as indicators only and not a trigger to buy or sell) to define and manage risk. Stop-loss orders are an important tool to negate any false signal. The goal is to let winners run while using trailing stop-loss orders to preserve gains.
