Price Signal Summary – Oil Revisits Levels Last Seen in September

  • In the equity space, S&P E-minis remain vulnerable following today's sell-off. The move lower highlights the S/T importance of Tuesday's price action. The candle pattern on this day is a bearish shooting star formation and warned of a short-term top and scope for a deeper corrective pullback. EUROSTOXX 50 futures have traded sharply lower today. Today's sharp sell-off has resulted in a break of Wednesday's low of 4236.50 and more importantly a breach of the 50-day EMA.
  • In FX, trend conditions are unchanged in the USD and the uptrend remains firmly intact. EURUSD has edged higher early Friday, but the outlook remains bearish. This week's move lower reinforces bearish conditions and confirmed an extension of the bearish sequence of lower lows and lower highs. GBPUSD remains weak, despite modest stabilisation early Friday. This week's breach of 1.3353, Nov 12 low and 1.3334, 1.00 projection of the Sep 14 - 29 - Oct 20 price swing cements the bearish outlook. USDJPY has struggled to hold onto recent highs and has traded sharply lower today. Recent price action has defined a key short-term resistance at 115.52, the Nov 24 high where a break is required to resume the recent upleg.
  • On the commodity front, Gold is consolidating and remains vulnerable. The yellow metal has sold off sharply this week extending the move lower from $1877.2, the Nov 16 high. WTI futures trade under pressure early Friday, picking up from the early close on Thursday. Prices have slipped through the key near-term support at 74.25 on the way lower, opening levels not seen since late September.

  • In the FI space, Bund futures are recovering from recent lows and importantly, support at 170.06, the Nov 5 low has remained intact. This suggests the recent move lower has been a correction and that a short-term uptrend remains intact. Gilt futures have rallied today and the contract gapped higher at the open. This price action negates recent bearish concerns and with resistance at 125.96, Nov 22 high breached.

  • SUP 3: 127.04 Low Feb 15
  • SUP 4: 126.65 Low Feb 10

EURJPY remains above last week's 127.98 low however, the short-term outlook remains bearish and the cross is softer today. Recent weakness resulted in a probe of 128.33, Oct 6 low. A clear break would leave 127.93 exposed, Sep 22 low and the key support. A breach would strengthen bearish conditions and open 127.28, a Fibonacci projection level. 129.99, the Nov 19 high marks initial firm resistance. A break would ease bearish pressure.

  • SUP 4: 0.6991 Low Nov 2 2020

AUDUSD remains soft and the slide has accelerated today. This week's price action has resulted in a break of the base of its bull channel drawn from the Aug 20 low.

The focus is on 0.7106, the Aug 20 low and a key support. Initial resistance is seen at 0.7228.

Clearance of this retracement would set the scene for a climb towards 1.2896, the Sep 20 high. On the downside, a key short-term support has been defined at 1.2493, the Nov 16 low.

  • SUP 4: 167.69 Low Nov 1 and the bear trigger

Bund futures are recovering from recent lows and importantly, support at 170.06, the Nov 5 low has remained intact. This suggests the recent move lower has been a correction and that a short-term uptrend remains intact. The break on Nov 19 of the 171.95 - 61.8% of the Aug - Nov sell-off opens 172.95, the 76.4% retracement. On the downside, sub 170.06 level would alter the picture and highlight a bearish threat.

  • SUP 3: 133.900/690 Low Nov 2
  • SUP 4: 133.340 Low Mar 19 and key medium-term support (cont)

Bobl futures are recovering from Wednesday's low. The pullback earlier this week appears to be a correction. The contract on Nov 19 breached resistance at 135.320, Nov 15 high. This confirmed a resumption of the S/T uptrend and has opened 135.870 next, Sep 3 high. The break higher also signals scope for a climb towards 136.00 and beyond further out. Key S/T support is at 134.700, Nov 11 low. A break would reverse the direction.

  • SUP 4: 111.945 Low Oct 28 and major support

A clear breach would again confirm a resumption of the short-term uptrend and pave the way for gains towards 112.585 next, Mar 17 2020 high (cont). Moving average conditions have recently turned bullish reinforcing the positive theme. Initial firm support lies at 112.267, the 50-day EMA.

  • SUP 4: 122.75 1.764 proj of the Nov 9 - 17 - 22 price swing

Gilt futures have rallied today and the contract gapped higher at the open. This price action negates recent bearish concerns and with resistance at 125.96, Nov 22 high breached, the key short -term hurdle at 126.23 has been exposed. This level has been probed and a clear break would strengthen the near-term outlook for bulls and open the 127.00 handle. On the downside, key short-term support has been defined at 124.17, Nov 24 low.

  • SUP 3: 148.54 76.4% retracement of the Nov 1 - 10 rally
  • SUP 4: 147.12 Low Nov 1 and the bear trigger

BTP futures traded lower Wednesday. This week's move down resulted in a break of support at 150.72, Nov 12 low. The breach undermines the recent bull theme and a deeper sell-off would open 149.41 next, a Fibonacci retracement level. However, the contract has bounced off Wednesday's low of 149.59. Key short-term resistance has been defined at 153.12, Nov 10 high. Initial resistance to watch is at 151.78, the 50-day EMA

  • SUP 3: 3949.50 Low Oct 6 and bear trigger
  • SUP 4: 3882.00 Low Jul 19

EUROSTOXX 50 futures have traded sharply lower today. Today's sharp sell-off has resulted in a break of Wednesday's low of 4236.50 and more importantly a breach of the 50-day EMA. This signals scope for a deeper decline and attention is on 4058.10, a Fibonacci retracement where a break would expose the key support at 6949.50, the Oct 6 low. On the upside, a move above 4304.50, the Nov 24 high is required to ease bearish pressure.

The candle pattern on this day is a bearish shooting star formation and warned of a short-term top and scope for a deeper corrective pullback. Support at 4625.25 level, Nov 10 low has been breached to strengthen the short-term case for bears. This has opened the 50-day EMA at 4562.53. Key resistance is at 4740.50.

Brent futures remain above recent lows but the contract is facing selling pressure today. The contract has failed to clear initial firm resistance at $83.14, Nov 16 high where a break would strengthen conditions for bulls and signal potential for a climb towards the major resistance of $85.77, Oct 25 high. On the downside, key short-term support has been defined at $77.58, Nov 22 low. A break would be bearish.

WTI TECHS: (F2) Under Pressure

  • SUP 2: $74.25 - Low Oct 7 and key near-term support
  • SUP 3: $72.36 - Low Sep 30
  • SUP 4: $70.81 - Low Sep 23

WTI futures trade under pressure early Friday, picking up from the early close on Thursday. Prices have slipped through the key near-term support at 74.25 on the way lower, opening levels not seen since late September. The 100-dma has somewhat arrested the decline, and may provide some support at 72.93. To resume the previous bullish trend, prices must top $80.68, Nov 16 high, where a break would strengthen short-term conditions for bulls. This would signal potential for a climb towards the major resistance of $83.83, Oct 25 high.

GOLD TECHS: Attention Is On The Bull Channel Base

  • SUP 3: $1757.1 - Bull Channel base drawn from the Aug 9 low
  • SUP 4: $1721.7 - Low Sep 29 and a key support

Gold is consolidating and remains vulnerable. The yellow metal has sold off sharply this week extending the move lower from $1877.2, the Nov 16 high. Price has also traded below the 20- and the 50-day EMA. The clear breach of these averages suggests scope for a deeper pullback and attention is on the base of a bull channel at $1757.1. The channel is drawn off the Aug 9 low. Initial resistance is at $1816.8, the 20-day EMA.

SILVER TECHS: Support Remains Exposed

  • SUP 3: $21.423 - Low Sep 29 and key support
  • SUP 4: $20.871 - 50.0% retracement of the Mar '20 - Feb '21 rally

Silver remains near recent lows. The metal has traded through the 50-day EMA this week. The break of this average suggests scope for a deeper short-term pullback and opens $23.020, the Nov 3 low and a firm near-term support. For bulls, a move above $25.406, Nov 16 high would reinstate a bullish theme and confirm a resumption of the uptrend. This would open $26.002, the Aug 4 high.
