Move Lower in E-Mini S&P This Week Reinforces Bearish Conditions


A bearish threat in Eurostoxx 50 futures remains present following the recent reversal from 4513.00, the Jul 31 high. Yesterday’s sharp sell-off reinforces current bearish conditions. The contract is testing support at 4276.00, the Aug 8 and 15 low. Clearance of this level would strengthen a bearish threat and expose 4220.00, the Jul 7 low. Key short-term resistance is unchanged at 4420.00, Aug 10 high. Bearish conditions in the E-mini S&P contract remain intact and this week’s move lower has reinforced current conditions. The contract is through the 50-day EMA and has breached channel support drawn from the Mar 13 low - the channel base is at 4461.67. A clear channel breakout would signal scope for a continuation lower and open 4411.25, the Jul 10 low. Initial resistance to watch is at the 20-day EMA - at 4515.45.
