E-Mini S&P Trades Softer Following Thursday Pullback


EUROSTOXX 50 futures were tilted higher through the Thursday open, before fading slightly into the close. This puts prices just below first resistance at 4303.20, the 2.382 proj of the Sep 29 - Oct 4 rise from Dec 20 low, but still above 4265.00, the Feb 3 high. Note that the trend is overbought. A pullback would represent a healthy correction. Key support lies at 4097.00, the Jan 19 low. Initial support is at 4167.50, the 20-day EMA. The S&P E-Minis trend condition is bullish and the latest pullback is considered corrective. The contract has pierced initial support at 4069.52, the 20-day EMA. Firmer support lies at the 50-day EMA, at 4006.63. A clear break of this average would signal scope for a deeper pullback and potentially highlight a reversal. Key resistance and the bull trigger intersect at 4208.50, the Feb 2 high. A breach would resume the uptrend.
