DAILY Sep'19 FTSE - Friday's trade idea and technicals

Sep'19 - Like mainland Europe, all this week’s bearish targets have been met with an initial over 325 Pt sell-off. However, with daily sentiment subsequently oversold near the psychological 7000.0 level, here too Thursday’s signals pointed temporarily higher. Also confirmed, a 2nd higher daily low & high in a row saw gains of almost 100 Pts but limited to inside Monday’s down-day. Sellers have returned to the market in Asia this morning and although there is no clear bearish reversal pattern there is a negative bias to signals. For this reason, the outlook for Friday is cautiously negative and...

Steve Lucas

DAILY SPOT GOLD - Thursday's call and technicals

All our weekly targets have been met as in line with daily signals which have continued to point higher, investors bought the market on Wednesday to post a 4th higher daily low & high in a row and a gain of 36 Pts. A fresh over 6 year top at 1510.4 has kept daily signals for sentiment much overstretched and the potential for a profit taking pullback is high. Weakness into the close and modest selling in Asia this morning hasn’t offered a clear bearish reversal pattern, but there is a cautiously negative bias and signals for Thursday are pointing temporarily lower and the call is to sell on the...

DAILY Sep'19 EUROSTOXX - Wednesday's trade idea and technicals

Sep'19 Contract – Bearish signals on the week have been already been confirmed, but with losses of over 320 Pts since July’s 3569 top leaving daily sentiment much oversold, Tuesday’s signals pointed to staying square on the open and to selling the rally at 3333, Monday’s Marabuzo line. This was the top and confirmed with a 34 Pt pullback from the high. With no sign that negative sentiment is ending and with signals still pointing lower the outlook for Wednesday remains bearish and the call is to sell just modestly on the open and then at 3298, today’s Asia high with a stop loss at 3338, Monday...

DAILY SPOT EURJPY - Tuesday's call and technicals

Against a background of bearish signals on the week, Monday saw sentiment post a 4th lower daily high & low in a row and an initial loss of almost 1 Big Fig. However, buyers have returned to the market following a fresh 2 ½ year low at 117.67, sentiment recovering into the close to end little changed and forming a daily Hammer. Further gains in Asia this morning may be temporary, but with signals improving the outlook for Tuesday is cautiously bullish and the call is to buy modestly on the open and then at 119.10 with a stop loss at 118.37, today’s Asia low trade. Targets are to 119.87, today’...

DAILY SPOT GOLD - Thursday's call and technicals

Despite a 3 day sell-off of almost 40 Pts since Friday’s 6 year high at 1453.0, Wednesday’s signals switched to bullish. These were confirmed with gains of over 11 Pts. Although this is positive, concerning for bulls is the fact that a sequence of lower daily highs has remained intact. It is for this reason that while Thursday’s signals remain bullish the outlook is cautious to start with and is to stay square on the open and to buy the dip at 1416.7, yesterday’s low with a stop loss at 1405.7, the 17th July open, or to buy up through 1436.0, Friday’s Marabuzo line with a stop loss at 1426.0. ...

Steve Lucas

DAILY SPOT GOLD - Thursday's call and technicals

This week’s call to stay long and buy the dip at 1403.6 has been confirmed, as in line with Wednesday’s signals which continued to point higher, investors bought the market yesterday from close to 1400.0 the Fig, for a strong 21 ½ Pt gain. This is positive, but until the June & July tops are clearly broken the outlook for Thursday remains just cautiously bullish and the call is to buy modestly on the open and then at 1416.0, Wednesday’s Marabuzo line with a stop loss at 1399.9, yesterday’s low. Targets are to 1430.0, 1436.5/38.3, July & June’s tops and then towards 1449.0.

DAILY JUN'19 BUNDS - Wednesday's trade idea and technicals

While weekly signals continue to point higher and to buying dips, Tuesday’s signals switched to temporarily bearish. These were confirmed with sentiment posting a 2nd lower daily high & low in a row and a loss of almost ½ Pt. The pullback is probably temporary profit taking and futures are testing their 13 day average rate and more importantly 166.06, the window which has remained open since the last 2 week close. Until this level is broken the outlook for Wednesday remains just cautiously bearish and the call is to sell on the open and then at 166.74, yesterday’s opening trade with a stop los...

DAILY SPOT AUDJPY - Wednesday's trade idea and technicals

Three unchanged weekly closes in a row have left daily trend signals weak, but for Tuesday there was a cautiously bearish bias. This was confirmed as initial gains in Asia were given up, but for sentiment to close little changed for the 3rd day in a row. Further losses in Asia this morning keeps the focus to the downside, so with signals weakening the outlook for Wednesday remains bearish and the call is to sell on the open and then at 75.74, the 13 day average rate with a stop loss at 76.08, yesterday’s high. Targets are to 75.23, July’s low, 74.59, the 26th June open and 74.33, the 25th June...

Bearish signals on the week have been confirmed and daily signals in each of the last 3 day shave been oversold, but also pointing lower. However, Thursday’s initial losses to a fresh 6 month low at 133.84 has attracted buyers back to the market, sentiment recovering to end a sequence of lower daily highs. This is short-term positive, so with a good deal of caution the outlook for Friday has switched to bullish and the call is to buy on the open and then at 134.40, Thursday’s Marabuzo line with a stop loss at 133.84, yesterday’s base. Targets are to 135.27/39, Tuesday’s high & this week’s open...

DAILY Sep'19 EUROSTOXX - Friday's trade idea and technicals

Sep'19 Contract – For the 3rd day in a row Thursday’s signals pointed higher. However, initial 28 Pt gains attracted sellers from close to the May 2018 top at 3576, sentiment deteriorating by 86 Pts from the day’s 3569 high. Although this is negative the pullback may be temporary profit taking and buyers have returned to the market at 3483, the window which had been left open since Monday’s closing trade. Sentiment has recovered further in Asia, but this should be temporary and the outlook for Friday remains bearish, but cautious to start with the call is to stay square on the open and to sell...

DAILY MAR'19 EUROSTOXX - Tuesday's trade idea and technicals

Futures have remained inside Friday’s range, but renewed buying in Asia this morning has improved sentiment. So, with signals pointing temporarily higher the outlook for Tuesday is bullish and the call is to buy on the open and then at 3488, today’s Asia low with a stop loss at 3461, the window which has remained open since June’s close. Targets are to 3507, Friday’s high, 3521/24, the 2 week...

DAILY Sep'19 US TBONDS - Friday's trade idea and technicals

This week’s signals have continued to point higher, but with daily sentiment overstretched they also point to buying dips. This has so far been confirmed, but with the recovery since Tuesday’s 152-27 base stalling ahead of June’s 155-01 top Thursday’s signals were more cautious and neutral. Although these too were confirmed, a 2nd higher daily low in a row has left a cautiously bullish bias to signals and the call for Friday is to buy on the open and then at 153-22 with a stop loss at 153-12, Wednesday’s base. Targets are to 154-15/17, last week’s close, 154-30/01, June’s top and 155-16.

Steve Lucas

WEEKLY BUNDS - This week's trade idea and technicals

In line with last week's bullish forecast, the preceding week's buying at the 13 week average extended. A 2nd up week in a row was primarily driven by Wednesday’s gains but profit taking attempts at the beginning and end of the week were limited. This keeps the technical focus on the topside and so this week’s call is Bullish from the open but leaving room to also buy a 165.38 dip, Wednesday’s Marabuzo line. The risk is last week's 164.71 base with upside targets of 166.21, the 4 week high, 166.75, March’s peak, or even towards 167.34.

SPOT EURUSD - signals revert to bullish, but look for pullback

​ Although our first downside target was met Wednesday, European trading saw limited movement in EURUSD. But the underlying positive tone, reflected in this week's report, reasserted post FOMC with a powerful move of more than a big figure. This kept the currency pair near the top of a bullish Keltner channel and took the market to new 2 ½ year highs. Of course, the speed and scope of the move means intraday signals for sentiment are overbought, especially after further Asian gains, but it is likely that a probable negative reaction will prove temporary. Therefore, our call for this morning is...

Steve Lucas

DAILY BUND - signals not strong, but bearish bias

Bunds continue trading in a range around the 13 day mvg avg and a Marabuzo line created on Sep 27th. Yesterday's initial lows and the subsequent highs were both rejected and this, and the recent 8 day trendlessness, cannot supply firm intraday signals for sentiment. So caution is demanded of any analysis. Nonetheless our intraday studies are mildly negative and so, with a good deal of caution, this morning’s call is a Sell but leaving room to Sell any Rally to 161.49. The risk is this month’s 161.82 top with an immediate target of 161.07, this week's low. A move through that point then exposes...

DEC'17 EUROSTOXX - bullish sentiment returns and signals point to buying dips

Dec'17 Contract – Ahead of Wednesday’s FOMC sentiment for EUROSTOXX has been trading sideways with futures prices little changed for 7 days in a row. However, in line with the bullish weekly call buyers have returned to the market post-meeting on Wednesday, sentiment rallying by 23 Pts on the day. With no sign that demand is ending, but with daily sentiment still overstretched the outlook for Thursday is to buy modestly on the open and then at 3523, Wednesday’s Marabuzo line with a stop loss at 3504, the window which has remained open since last week’s close. Targets are to 3545/50, 3574, the ...

DAILY SPOT AUDUSD - shooting star and end to higher lows signals temporary pullback

Although a trend of higher weekly lows highlights bullish AUDUSD sentiment and the demand to buy dips, a daily Shooting Star at Friday’s 27 month high at .8126 has signalled the potential for a temporary pullback. This is occurring with Monday’s near ½ Big Fig losses ending a trend of higher daily lows. With no sign that the correction is ending, the outlook for Tuesday is to sell on the open and then at .8038, Monday’s Marabuzo line with a stop loss at .8074, yesterday’s high. Targets are to .8003, today’s Asia low, .7973, Thursday’s base and .7932, last week’s low trade.

WEEKLY SPOT USDCAD - bounces provide selling opportunities

Last week's negative call was confirmed and all our downside targets were met as a 4th down week in a row was posted. USDCAD was sold to lower levels each day with the market hugging the bottom of falling daily & weekly Keltner channels. In addition more than half of the 2012-16 rise has now been corrected. Signals for sentiment are oversold and there is potential for Friday’s profit taking reaction to extend in early price action. But the undertone is clearly bearish and so our call for this week is a Sell but leaving room to Sell any Rally to 1.2242, Thursday’s high. The risk is 1.2374, Wedn...

SPOT AUDUSD - overbought, but dip buying dominating investor sentiment

Bullish signals for AUDUSD on the week and for Thursday have been confirmed, investors buying the market yesterday to post a 5th higher daily low & high in a row and a gain of ½ Big Fig on the day. There is no sign that the demand to buy dips is ending, but with intraday sentiment much overstretched pullbacks must be expected. Against this background the outlook for Friday is to buy only modestly on the open and then at .8090 with a stop loss at .8042, today’s Asia low. Targets are to .8135, .8163, the May 2015 top and .8220.
