  • C > High of the Low Bar generated on Monday.
  • February Gold moved back to the upside on Monday and to within just $6 of last week’s high as investors moved into the metal ahead of the FOMC meeting in hopes of a new stimulus easing package.
  • Uncertainty regarding the U.S. fiscal cliff added to investor concerns and with the impending resignation of the Italian Prime Minister, gold should be able to continue the bullish momentum and target $1,741.80.
  • Projected Daily Range: 18.70
  • Projected Weekly Range: 43.10
  • Projected Monthly Range: 94.70


Euro FX (December):

  • Confirmation of a bottom with a range violation on 11/15/12 @ 1.2788. Confirmation of a bottom with a close violation on 11/19/12 @ 1.2811. Upside Targets = 1.3117 – 1.3177.
  • Inside VRCB generated on Monday.
  • The December Euro FX traded out to the side in a very narrow trading range on Monday as the market digested both the possibility of further US economic easing from the Fed and the resignation of the Italian PM.
  • While there is still an 82% chance of Friday’ low being violated before closing above its high, the recent bullish trend may outweigh the law of probabilities and take this market back higher to retest the recent highs above 1.31.
  • Projected Daily Range: .0098
  • Projected Weekly Range: .0219
  • Projected Monthly Range: .0456


E-Mini S&P (December)

  • Inside compression day generated on Monday.
  • The December S&Ps edged higher on Monday on the heels of some optimism over the U.S. fiscal cliff and a weaker USD in a thin and choppy trading session.
  • The market has been reluctant to move through the 1420 market recently and traders should expect some more sideways price action throughout the course of this week until after the conclusion of the FOMC meeting for guidance on additional economic stimulus.
  • Projected Daily Range: 11.25
  • Projected Weekly Range: 37.00
  • Projected Monthly Range: 81.50
