*The Fed Minutes confirmed preexisting knowledge that inflation is still the primary concern for the economy (making this release a low impact event) and that more downsizing of the Fed balance sheet + another 50bps is the baseline scenario for the next FOMC meeting on 09/21. Fed Staff (FOMC) agreed that 3.4% is the current peak target rate for FFR, the current range is 2.25%-2.5% implying that perhaps two 25bp rate hikes will follow September's anticipated 50bps hike to end the year. Some participants (Fed members) commented on how commodities (primarily energy and food) are likely to keep inflation up in the near term, some Participants mentioned that the policy adjustments are already seeing a substantial effect but almost all agreed that most of the effects haven't been felt yet, and most participants agreed that they support rate hikes until PCE is closer to the 2% long-run target. July US Retail Sales stayed roughly the same as in June and posted ~0% change compared to estimates of 0.1% (sales are still up 9.2% from July 2021), this surprised many analysts who expected more spending with the recent significant reduction in gas prices. Key Upcoming Dates: S&P US August PMI at 945am EST on 08/23; US Q2 Final GDP Estimate at 830am EST 08/25; US July PCE at 830am EST 08/26; UofM Final August Sentiment Survey Index at 10am EST 08/26; Jackson Hole Economic Symposium on 08/25-08/27.*

Price is currently testing $4254 minor support after being rejected by the upper trendline of the descending channel from November 2021 + the 50 MA at ~$4325. Volume remains consistently Moderate and broke a three day streak of buyer dominance with a seller dominated close in today's session; this was a capitulation type of initial reaction which is indicative of a critical resistance. Parabolic SAR flips bearish at $4220, this margin is bearish. RSI is currently testing 68.42 support after forming a soft peak at 73. Stochastic is bearish and currently trending down at 87; it remains in the 'bullish autobahn zone' which is mildly bullish at the moment. MACD remains bullish but is beginning to trend sideways as it forms a soft peak just above the ATH (91.78) at 93.54; it has been bullish for 54 days now, implying that perhaps this is more than just a bear market rally. ADX is currently trending up at 31 as Price continues to push higher, this is bullish at the moment.

If Price is able to bounce here at $4254 minor support then it will likely retest the upper trendline of the descending channel from November 2021 + the 50 MA at ~$4300 as resistance. However, if Price loses $4254 minor support, it will likely retest $4175 support before potentially retesting the uptrend line from 06/16 at ~$4k psychological support. Mental Stop Loss: (one close below) $4226.
