E-Mini S&P Extends Corrective Recovery


Eurostoxx 50 futures traded higher yesterday as the contract extends the corrective recovery from 4187.00, the Aug 18 low. The contract has breached resistance at the 50-day EMA at 4330.6. A continuation higher would signal scope for a climb towards resistance at 4420.00. On the downside, a breach of 4187.00 would be a bearish development and confirm a resumption of the downtrend. The E-mini S&P contract traded higher yesterday and is holding on to its recent gains. Price has traded above resistance at 4520.90, the base of a bull channel, drawn from the Mar 13 low that was breached on Aug 16. A clear break of this level would strengthen the upleg and open 4560.75, the Aug 4 high. Initial support to watch lies at 4452.93, the 50-day EMA. A return below the average would be a bearish development.
