European, US Futures Target Bull Trigger with Prices Above 50-Day EMA


EUROSTOXX 50 futures are firmer as price extends the recovery from 3251.00, Oct 13 low. Note that price has traded above the 50-day EMA, at 3472.00 - a positive development. Attention is on resistance at 3492.00, the Oct 6 high and bull trigger and trendline resistance drawn from the Aug 17 high, which intersects at 3504.30 today. Clearance of 3492.00 and 3504.30 would highlight a strong S/T bullish development. Initial support is at 3352.00. S&P E-Minis are firmer this week. A volatile session last Thursday resulted in a strong bounce from the day low as well as the trend low of 3502.00. The subsequent recovery suggests the contract has entered a corrective phase. The 20-day EMA has been breached, reinforcing a bullish theme and opening 3820.00, the Oct 5 high and a bull trigger. Key support lies at 3502.00.
