Bear Threat Still Present in Eurostoxx Futures Despite Latest Move Higher


The latest move higher in Eurostoxx 50 futures appears to be a correction and a bear threat remains present. The contract traded sharply lower last week, clearing a number of key support levels. 4241.00, the May 31 low, has been breached highlighting a potential reversal, opening 4208.50, a Fibonacci retracement. Key short-term resistance is seen at 4329.40, the 50-day EMA. A clear break of this average would ease bearish pressure. A bull theme in S&P E-minis remains intact and the pullback last week appears to be a correction. First support at 4420.62, the 20-day EMA, remains intact. Clearance of this level would strengthen a bearish threat and expose 4368.50, Jun 26 low and a key support. On the upside, the bull trigger is at 4498.00, the Jun 16 high. A clear breach of this level would confirm a resumption of the uptrend and open 4532.08, a Fibonacci projection.
