ES SP500 Futures Comments:
We are gong to leave the short/long areas exactly where they were y’day. The markets are attempting to break out to new highs pre-market and we have that destination based on past momentum to the 1444/45 area.
On the 60 minute below, you can see the inverse Head and Shoulders pattern that has formed the neckline around 1439. That pattern targets a run to 1456, we think that is possible. We also think the overnight highs might be the highs for a while. In other words, we are bullish from our breadth charts, we are bored and tired of being bullish, we are looking for reasons to get short and ignore breadth, we think 1439 is a reasonable high spot for a market reversal, 1444 and 1456. Patience is the key to this game. Wait for the prey to come to you.
US Dollar DX Futures Comments:
We wanted that 80 to go and it did. We thought there might be more of a fight than there was at the pscyh level, but once through it now becomes the upside resistance, really it is the 80.25 area that must be watched. Unless we have a complete meltdown, we should be heading into another consolidation phase.
TLT Twenty Year Bond ETF Comments:
TLT is usually good for a 2 to 3 day trend. 123 is the new floor and currently pre-market we are down below there. If TLT behaves like we think it will, it should rally today to the 123.25 area and then fall apart again. We maintain our downside target at 118.50.
