US, European Futures Consolidating After Recent Recovery


EUROSTOXX 50 futures maintain a firmer tone following the recent recovery from 3251.00, Oct 13 low. The move higher has resulted in a break of the 50-day EMA and resistance at 3492.00, the Oct 6 high and a bull trigger. Price has also arrived at a trendline resistance drawn from the Aug 17 high. Initial firm support is at 3352.00, the Oct 14 low. Despite the pullback, S&P E-Minis maintains a firmer tone following last week’s reversal from 3502.00, the Oct 13 low. The latest recovery suggests the contract has entered a corrective phase and if correct, this is allowing an oversold trend condition to unwind. The 20-day EMA has been breached. The break reinforces a bullish theme and opens 3820.00, the Oct 5 high and a bull trigger. Key support is unchanged at 3502.00.
