  • December Gold followed through on the bearish VRCB-OVB combination generated this week as it achieved our first downside objective of $1,596.10 on Wednesday before settling just below the daily mid-range.
  • After being oversold into intraday support, look for gold to move back marginally higher to $1,614.30 on Thursday before running into further daily resistance.
  • Projected Daily Range: 18.90
  • Projected Weekly Range: 63.70
  • Projected Monthly Range: 105.00

  • Possible confirmation of a top with a close violation @ 1.22332 or lower.
  • The September Euro FX generated a bearish OVB on Wednesday after no action by the Fed was announced to make new lows for the week.
  • The euro should be highly sensitive to Thursday’s ECB announcement which will require some sort of interventional efforts in order to avoid another massive run on the currency to push it below 1.2000.
  • Projected Daily Range: .0095
  • Projected Weekly Range: .0234
  • Projected Monthly Range: .0601

  • Confirmation of a top with a range violation on 08/01/12 @ 1370.75. Confirmation of a top with a close violation on 08/01/12 @ 1370.50. Downside Targets = 1352.50 – 1343.75.
  • The September S&P’s sank lower in afternoon trading following the FOMC announcement which called for no further easing efforts and a mostly pessimistic view for the US economy.
  • The S&P’s will likely have a very volatile last two days this week with both the ECB meeting and NFP report to cap the week.
  • Projected Daily Range: 13.75
  • Projected Weekly Range: 45.75
  • Projected Monthly Range: 95.75
