- In the equity space, S&P E-Minis remain soft and continue to trade closer to recent lows. Last week’s breach of 3900.00, the Sep 7 low, strengthened bearish conditions and signals scope for a move towards 3819.54 next, 76.4% retracement of the Jun 17 - Aug 16 bull leg. A break would open 3741.75, the Jul 14 low. EUROSTOXX 50 futures maintain a bearish tone following the reversal on Sep 13 and the subsequent move lower. A key support at 3423.00, the Sep 5 low, has been pierced. A clear break would expose 3360.00, the Jul 16 low.
- In FX, the EURUSD outlook remains bearish and the pair is trading lower. Price remains inside the bear channel, drawn from the Feb 10 high and attention is on the bear trigger at 0.9864, Sep 6 low. The channel top intersects at 1.0087 and marks a key resistance. A channel breakout is required to signal a short-term reversal.

This pattern reinforces the broader bullish theme and attention is on the bull trigger at 144.99, Sep 7 high. A break would resume the uptrend and open 145.28 and 146.03, the 2.618 and 2.764 projection of the Aug 2 - 8 - 11 price swing. Initial firm support is at 141.51, Sep 9 low. A strong support also lies at the 20-day EMA, at 141.43.

Attention is on $1640.9 next, the Aug 8 2020 low. Initial resistance is at $1688.9, the Sep 1 low. In the Oil space, the WTI futures outlook is bearish and today’s gains are considered corrective.

Firm resistance is at $89.86, the 50-day EMA.
