Global Futures Market Review

Massive Swing Point On Global Risk

Latest Market Update: 
- The oversold equity rally off October lows imploded with an overbought reversal, giving back gains just as quickly as they were generated. S&P 500 is negative for the year, again, and back to the Dec 1998 closing prices. Buy-and-hold is officially dead, long live Buy-and-sell. 

- Take care selling into the initial risk aversion moves; most asset classes have hit Daily chart technical support areas. Signals will follow if the next upside test of resistance fails, which will likely set the tone for trade going into year-end. Trading 24-hour Futures contracts allows control over the ups and downs that hit ahead of the cash market open, and is one way to negate the volatility of price gaps as regional trade gets underway. 

Near-term Outlook: 
- Commodity Update: Gold: Sup 1680 Res 1740 Neutral 1725. Silver: Sup 32.50 Res 35.20 Neutral 34.50. Oil: Sup 89.20 Res 93.70 Neutral 92.50. 
- Equity/USD Update: S&P500: Sup 1205 Res 1270 Neutral 1255. Dax: Sup 5650 Res 6310 Neutral 6230. DXY: Sup 75.60 Res 77.90. Neutral 76.15.
