Price Signal Summary - Bunds Clear The 50-Day EMA

  • In the equity space, S&P E-minis are unchanged and still trading close to the all-time high of 4238.25 May 10 high. This remains the key resistance and the trigger for a resumption of the uptrend. Initial support is at 4165.25, Jun 3 low.
  • In the FX space, EURUSD appears vulnerable following last week's price action. The focus is on 1.2105, the 50-day EMA. GBPUSD is softer and remains below 1.4248, Jun 1 high. A deeper pullback would expose 1.4006, May 13 low. Note the 50-day EMA intersects at 1.4024 and also represents a key support level. Recent USDJPY weakness has resulted in a probe of support at 109.33, Jun 1 low. A clear break lower would threaten the recent uptrend and expose 108.56, May 25 low.
  • On the commodity front, Gold key short-term directional triggers are at; $1916.6, the Jun 1 and bull trigger and $1856.2, the Jun 4 low. Trend conditions in oil remain bullish and price has traded higher this week. Recent Brent (Q1) gains have opened $73.00 next, a round number resistance. WTI (N1) similarly cleared resistance to hit new cycle highs, clearing the $70.00 psychological level in the process. The focus is on $70.92, 2.764 projection of Mar 23 - 30 - Apr 5 price swing
  • Within FI, Bunds (U1) have topped the 50-day EMA at 172.00 and looks to have made a clear break. This counters the bearish outlook, with support still holding at 170.99. May 31 low. The break higher opens 172.64, 61.8% retracement of the Mar 25 - May 19 sell-off. Gilts (U1) challenged resistance at 127.74/82 this morning - marking the highs between Apr 20 and May 26. A bearish risk remains present. A breach of this resistance zone is required to highlight a base.

EURUSD TECHS: Remains Vulnerable

  • RES 4: 1.2414 High Apr 17, 2018
  • RES 3: 1.2349/53 High Jan 6 / High Apr 20, 2018
  • RES 2: 1.2266/85 High May 25 and the bull trigger / High Jan 8
  • RES 1: 1.2218 High Jun 9
  • PRICE: 1.2165 @ 06:05 BST Jun 10
  • SUP 1: 1.2108/2104 50-day EMA / Low Jun 4 and key S/T support
  • SUP 2: 1.2052 Low May 13
  • SUP 3: 1.1986 Low May 5
  • SUP 4: 1.1919 61.8% retracement of the Mar 31 - May 25 rally

EURUSD failed to hold onto yesterday's gains. The pair remains vulnerable following a sharp pullback Jun 3 that saw price trade through initial support at 1.2133, May 28 low. This highlights potential for a deeper correction and attention remains on the 50-day EMA at 1.2108. The EMA represents a key area of support ahead of 1.2104, the Jun 4 low. On the upside, primary resistance is unchanged at 1.2266, May 25 high.

GBPUSD TECHS: Consolidation Mode

  • RES 4: 1.4448 2.0% 10-dma envelope
  • RES 3: 1.4377 High Apr 17, 2018 and a key resistance
  • RES 2: 1.4315 High Apr 18, 2018
  • RES 1: 1.4203/48 High Jun 3 / High Jun 1 and the bull trigger
  • PRICE: 1.4111 @ 06:09 BST Jun 10
  • SUP 1: 1.4083 Low Jun 4
  • SUP 2: 1.4028/06 50-day EMA / Low May 13 and key support
  • SUP 3: 1.3972 Low May 10
  • SUP 4: 1.3858 Low May 6

GBPUSD is still trading in a range below 1.4248, Jun 1 high. Trend conditions are bullish. The probe last week of former resistance at 1.4237, Feb 24 high reinforces this bullish theme however a clear break is required to confirm a resumption of the uptrend. This would open 1.4315 next, April 18 2018 high. On the downside, initial firm support is at 1.4083, Jun 4 low. A break would expose the 50-day EMA at 1.4028 and 1.4006, May 13 low.

EURGBP TECHS: In A Range

  • RES 4: 0.8777 2.0% 10-dma envelope and high Feb 12
  • RES 3: 0.8731 High Feb 26
  • RES 2: 0.8701/21 High May 7 / High Apr 26 and the bull Trigger
  • RES 1: 0.8646/72 High Jun 1 / High May 25
  • PRICE: 0.8622 @ 06:19 BST Jun 10
  • SUP 1: 0.8565/61 Low Jun 4 / Low May 12
  • SUP 2: 0.8531 76.4% retracement of the Apr 5 - 26 rally
  • SUP 3: 0.8472 Low Apr 5 and the bear trigger
  • SUP 4: 0.8433 2.0% 10-dma envelope

EURGBP traded higher Wednesday. Price action though remains within the current range. The broader outlook is bearish following the move lower between May 25 - 28. Initial resistance is at 0.8672, May 25 high and while this holds, attention is on 0.8561, May 12 low. A break would strengthen a bearish case and expose 0.8531, a Fibonacci retracement ahead of key support at 0.8472, Apr 5 low. A move above 0.8672 alters the picture.

USDJPY TECHS: Appears Vulnerable

  • RES 4: 111.30 High Mar 26, 2020
  • RES 3: 110.97 High Mar 31 and the bull trigger
  • RES 2: 110.55 High Apr 6
  • RES 1: 110.33 High Jun 4
  • PRICE: 109.54 @ 06:24 BST Jun 10
  • SUP 1: 109.19/108.97 Low Jun 7 / 50-day EMA
  • SUP 2: 108.56/34 Low May 25 / Low May 7 and key S/T support
  • SUP 3: 107.48 Low Apr 23 and the bear trigger
  • SUP 4: 106.97 Low Mar 4

USDJPY recovered Wednesday but has failed to make significant progress through last Friday's NFP inspired decline. The recent move lower resulted in a print below initial key short-term support at 109.33, Jun 1 low. This dents the bullish theme and a deeper sell-off would expose 108.56, May 25 low. A recovery would instead refocus attention on 110.33 where a break would resume the uptrend and open this year's 110.97 high from Mar 31 high.

EURJPY TECHS: Corrective Cycle

  • RES 4: 134.98 Bull channel top drawn off the Oct 30, 2020 low
  • RES 3: 134.80 High Feb 8, 2018
  • RES 2: 134.19 1.618 proj of Jun - Sep - Oct 2020 swing
  • RES 1: 133.81/34.13 High Jun 4 / High Jun 1 and the bull trigger
  • PRICE: 133.29 @ 06:34 BST Jun 10
  • SUP 1: 132.89 Low Jun 7
  • SUP 2: 132.52 Low May 24
  • SUP 3: 131.94 50-day EMA
  • SUP 4: 131.47 Bull channel base drawn off the Oct 30, 2020 low

EURJPY has traded lower overnight. Trend conditions remain bullish despite the recent move lower and the pullback is likely a correction. The cross touched a high of 134.13 on Jun 1 and the extension reinforces bullish conditions signalling scope for further gains within the rising channel drawn off the Oct 30 2020 low. The channel top intersects at 134.98. Firm support lies at 132.52, May 24 low. Initial support is seen at 132.89, the weekly low.

AUDUSD TECHS: Outlook Remains Bearish

  • RES 4: 0.8007 High Feb 25
  • RES 3: 0.7891/95 High May 10 / 76.4% of the Feb 25 - Apr 1 sell-off
  • RES 2: 0.7813/46 High May 18 / High May 12
  • RES 1: 0.7773 High Jun 2
  • PRICE: 0.7734 @ 06:42 BST Jun 10
  • SUP 1: 0.7646 Low Jun 3
  • SUP 2: 0.7635 Low Apr 14
  • SUP 3: 0.7586 Low Apr 13
  • SUP 4: 0.7542 200-dma

AUDUSD is consolidating in a tight range. The pair broke through 0.7675 on Jun 3 but immediately reversed the sharp move lower. Last week's break lower however does signal the end of the recent broader consolidation since mid-April. A resumption of weakness would open 0.7586, Apr 13 low and 0.7532, Apr 1 low and key support. Initial resistance is at 0.7773, Jun 2 high and 0.7813, May 18 high. A break of the latter would ease bearish pressure.

USDCAD TECHS: Stuck In A Range

  • RES 4: 1.2419 High Apr 27
  • RES 3: 1.2351 High May 4 and a key near-term resistance
  • RES 2: 1.2245 50-day EMA
  • RES 1: 1.2142/2203 High May 27 / High May 6
  • PRICE: 1.2114 @ 06:50 BST Jun 10
  • SUP 1: 1.2007 Low May 18
  • SUP 2: 1.2000 Psychological round number
  • SUP 3: 1.1920 Low May 2015
  • SUP 4: 1.1839 2.0% 10-dma envelope

USDCAD continues to trade in a range. The underlying trend however remains bearish although to resume the downleg, the pair needs to clear 1.2007, May 18 low. This would expose the psychological 1.2000 handle where a breach would also reinforce bearish conditions. For bulls, key short-term resistance has been defined at 1.2203, May 6 high. A break would instead signal a S/T base and the potential for a stronger corrective bounce.

The latter is the May 20, 2019 high (cont). Weakness through $64.50, the May 21 low is required to highlight a key short-term top. Initial support lies at $69.90, May 18 high with the 20-day EMA intersecting at $69.74.

WTI crude futures remain bullish and the contract traded higher once again yesterday. The psychological $70.00 handle has been cleared. The break reinforces current trend conditions and opens $70.92 next, a Fibonacci projection. Key trend support has been defined at $61.56, May 21 low. A break is required to suggest a key short-term top. Initial firm support is seen at $67.02.

  • SUP 2: $1852.3 - Low May 19
  • SUP 3: $1837.8 - 50-day EMA
  • SUP 4: $1808.9 - Low May 13

Gold is slightly weaker. The metal faced strong selling pressure Jun 3 and probed the 20-day EMA currently at $1876.7. A clear breach of this EMA would signal scope for a deeper pullback to $1852.3, May 19 low. Recent weakness is allowing an overbought condition to unwind. Note that below $1852.3 lies support highlighted by the 50-day EMA at $1837.8. The 50-day EMA marks a key trend support area. Key resistance is at $1916.6.

  • SUP 3: $26.721 - Low Mar 13 and key near-term support
  • SUP 4: $25.718 - Low Apr 29

Silver is unchanged. The metal faced selling pressure on Jun 3 moving sharply below the $28.00 handle. The move lower exposes support defined by the 50-day EMA at $27.062. A clear break of the EMA and of $27.040, Jun 3 low would concern bulls and attention would likely turn to support at $26.721, Mar 13 low. Key resistance has been defined at $28.753, May 18 high. Initial resistance though is seen at $28.237, Jun 3 high.
