Yesterday, the U.S. dollar strengthened against other major currency pairs after the Fed said it would end its monthly bond-buying program but keep rates near zero for "considerable time". As a result, EUR/USD declined below the medium-term resistance zone, which triggered a sharp decline to slightly above the recent lows. Will they withstand the selling pressure and we’ll see a double bottom in the coming days?

Earlier today, the Commerce Department showed that durable goods orders fell 1.3% in the previous month, missing expectations for a 0.5% increase. Core durable goods orders (without volatile transportation items) dropped 0.2% in September, which was the largest decline in eight months. Thanks to these bearish numbers, the USD/CAD pair declined sharply, slipping below the last week’s low. Where could currency bulls find solid support?

Generally, the real interest rates are negatively correlated with the gold price, i.e. the rising interest rates adversely impact the price of the yellow metal. According to a rule of thumb, whenever the dollar’s real short-term interest rate is below 2%, gold rallies, and whenever the real short-term rate is above 2%, the price of gold falls. However, there are many objections to the use of such a simple model, and generally to the adverse relationship between gold and real interest rates.

On Friday, crude oil lost 0.68% as concerns over a global oversupply continued to weigh. Additionally, soft U.S. housing data pushed the commodity below $82 per barrel. Will we see another test of the strength of the psychologically important level of $80?

Earlier today, the National Association of Realtors showed that sales of previously owned homes climbed 2.4% from a month earlier to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.17 million in September.
