A daily summary of high-profile members of several complexes.
Eurodollar Sep Contract (EC, ETF: (FXE)) Monday morning duplicated Friday’s bias by gapping down. A fresh low close is no longer required, but gapping down Monday was unable to attract counter-trend sponsorship. While that pessimism so early in the week suggests a bottom is nearing, Monday’s opening gap should still be retested from above first.
Gold Oct (COMEX:GCV14) Contract (GC, ETF: (GLD)) Relatively flat price action Sunday night and Monday did not reject the decline or its likelihood for fresh lows testing 1265.00.
Silver Sep Contract (SI, ETF: (SLV)) Relatively narrow ranging maintained the lockstep trading with Gold, except for already testing last week’s prior low intraday Monday.
30-year Treasury Sep Contract (US, ETF: (TLT)) Sunday night’s strength stopped pessimistically short of filling the gap back to 141-01, let alone testing it up to my 141-06 target. But the recovery of 140-16 remained intact.
Crude Oil (NYMEX:CLV14) Oct Contract (CL, ETF: (USO)) Another attack on 94.00 reacted down Monday, not yet triggering the buy signal that would initially target at least 96.00.
Natural Gas Sep Contract (NG, ETF: (UNG, UNL)) Sunday night’s strength retested 3.91 resistance before Monday’s open. Gapping up from support to resistance doesn’t often extend higher without further correction. But the action is in-line with bottoming, so long as optimism is meanwhile kept in-check.
