EC Coiling US Markets

In this week’s Dirty Dozen [CHART PACK]  we look at spring loaded indices with evidence tilting in favor of a coming break higher… we follow that up with bitcoin sitting at a major inflection point before diving into inflation surprises and related flows, along with what that could mean for the EURUSD.

Either way, this type of sentiment needs to be reset for a more durable advance.
