  • In the equity space, S&P E-minis continue to extend the rally from 4293.75, Sep 20 low. The contract last week cleared a key short-term resistance at 4418.00, Sep 20 high and importantly, remains above the 50-day EMA. The next hurdle is 4478.50, Sep 16 high. A break would open 4539.50, Sep 3 high and the bull trigger. EUROSTOXX 50 maintains a bullish tone following last week's rebound from 3974.00, Sep 20 low. Further gains would open the bull trigger at 4223.00, Sep 6 high.
  • In FX, EURUSD outlook remains bearish. The focus is on key support at 1.1664, Aug 20 low. GBPUSD remains above key support at 1.3602, Aug 20 low. Triangle support at 1.3636 remains intact too and a breach of the 1.3636/02 zone is required to trigger a deeper sell-off. A resumption of gains would open 1.3792 the 50-day EMA.
