The yield on the US Treasury 10-Year note is below its 50-day simple moving average (NYSE:SMA) at 2.719% as Fed decides not to taper its bond purchasing programs. My monthly pivot at 2.725% proves to be a magnet. The weekly chart still shows that the rise in yields is overdone. A weekly close below the five-week modified moving average at 2.729% indicates potential to the 200-week SMA at 2.534%. The yield on the 30-Year bond is still above its 50-day SMA at 3.737% as my monthly pivot remains a magnet at 3.738%. The weekly chart for the yield on the 30-Year bond shifts to positive favoring lower yields on a close on Friday below the five-week MMA at 3.735% with the 200-week SMA at 3.643%.
Gold traded as low as $1291.5 pre-FOMC then as high as $1375.4 this morning well above its 50-day SMA at $1339.2 the Troy ounce. The weekly chart will stay positive with a close on Friday above the five-week MMA at $1351.9.
Crude oil ended flipped back above its 50-day SMA at $106.73 per barrel post-FOMC. The weekly chart stays positive but overbought on a Friday close above the five-week MMA at $106.93. My semiannual pivot at $109.84 remains a magnet.
The euro vs. the dollar is above its 50-day and 200-day SMAs at $1.3273 and 1.3161 with the 200-day SMA at 1.3161. The weekly chart profile shifts to positive with a weekly close above five-week MMA at 1.3302 and the 200-week SMA at 1.3353.

The five major equity averages set new all time or multi-year highs following the Fed Statement that stated that it was premature to begin tapering QE3 & QE4. In my opinion all this decision does is further inflate the equity bubbles and risks re-inflating the gold bubble and oil bubble. This morning the Dow Industrial Average is trading just below yesterday's all time high at 15,709.79. The S&P 500 set a higher new all time high this morning at 1729.86. The Nasdaq set a new multi-year high at 3798.15 this morning as well. Dow Transports set another new all time high this morning at 6743.85. The Russell 2000 is just below its all time high set yesterday at 1080.49.
