The yield on the 10-Year note continued to trend lower on a flight to quality. This will be put to a test over the next three days with auctions of $32 billion 3-Year notes on Tuesday, $24 billion 10-Year notes on Wednesday and $16 billion 30-Year bonds on Thursday. Gold rebounded to $1517.7 this morning, which is shy of my quarterly pivot at $1523.7 and the May 2nd all time high at $1577.4. Crude oil reversed to the upside as my annual pivots at $99.91 and $101.92 became value levels once again. The euro slumped to a low of 1.4258 on Monday then rebounded back above my quarterly pivot at 1.4308. Monday’s rebound for the equity averages were below this week’s risky levels at 12,794 for the Dow Industrial Average, 1352.3 for the S&P 500, 2856 for the NASDAQ, 5517 for Dow Transports and 868.01 for the Russell 2000.

Definition of MOJO – This is my term for technical momentum. I use what’s called “12x3x3 slow stochastic readings” from daily, weekly and monthly charts. The scale is zero to 10.0 where above 8.0 is overbought and below 2.0 is oversold.
