Our In-house Systems Building Workshops are now in high demand. Enquire now to avoid long delays.
ASX – 6705 ( -33 or -0.49% )
With a big week in store for the ASX, will the start of a new month bring the bears out again? We will be discussing this in the MEMBER PORTAL this week.
Tue 11:30 – Building Approvals
Tue 14:30 – RBA Interest Rate Announcement, RBA Rate Statement
Tue 19:20 – RBA Governor Lowe Speaks
Thu 11:30 – Trade Balance
Fri 11:30 – Retail Sales, RBA Financial Stability Review
For a continued move higher we must now see the ASX hold above 6682. Should this occur, we will look for a test of 6804. If momentum to the upside continues we could see a retest of 6850, and if momentum is very strong we cannot rule out rule out a move to 7011.
If the ASX cannot hold above 6682, we will look for a move back down to 6635. A strong break and close below this level however could see the ASX retest 6544 before a pause; and if downside momentum is very strong, we could see a move down to 6435.
DAX – 12329 ( -75 or -0.6% )
The DAX printed its first down week in over a month. We have some very important technical levels we’re watching now and this will be another important week.
NOTE: Thursday is a public holiday in Germany (German Unity Day)
Mon 17:00 – German Prelim CPI (monthly)
Wed 03:30 – German Buba President Weidmann Speaks
For a continued move to the upside we must see the DAX close above 12374. Should this occur, we will look for a move off 12566 into 12714. If momentum is very strong, we could see a fast move to 12921.
If the DAX fails to close above 12374, we will look for a move back down to 12198. Any break below this level however could see the DAX sell-off sharply into 12000 this week.
SP500 – 2966 ( -20 or -0.67% )
As the US enters its 3rd week of consolidation, the question on everyone’s mind is have we seen a double top or is this market getting ready to break higher? We will be discussing this market in the LIVE CHAT ROOM this week.

Wed 00:00 – ISM Manufacturing PMI
Fri 00:00 – ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI
Fri 22:30 – Non-Farm Employment Numbers – LIVE TV
Sat 04:00 – Fed Chair Powell Speaks
For a move higher we would like to see the S&P close above 2985. Should this occur, we will look for a move to 3003. A strong break above this level however sets the stage for a move higher into 3066.
If we cannot hold above 2985, we could see this market retest 2960. A break of this level however may result in quick move down to 2941; and if momentum to the downside remains strong we may see a fast move down to 2902.
AUD/USD – 0.6765 ( +1 or +0.01% )
The Aussie Dollar traded much lower last week with yet another move down into an important level. We will be discussing this market in more detail in the LIVE CHAT ROOM.
Tue 19:55 – RBA Governor Lowe Speaks
For a move higher, we would first like to see the AUD hold above 0.6762. Should this occur, we will look for a retest of of 0.6875, and if upside momentum remains very strong, we may see a push higher into 0.6934 before a pause.
If the AUD cannot hold above 0.6762, we will look for a retest of 0.6706. A break and close below this level sets the stage for a larger move down to 0.6598; and if momentum to the downside is very strong, 0.6457 cannot be ruled out.
EUR/USD – 1.0941 ( -78 or -0.71% )
The Euro has closed below 1.1000 for the first time in over two years. We will be discussing the significance of this exclusively in the MEMBER PORTAL.
For a move higher this week, we would like to see the EURO close above 1.0977; followed by a break back above 1.1033. Should this occur, we could then see a move to 1.1197 before a pause; and if momentum is very strong to the upside we cannot rule out a move into 1.1249.
If the EURO cannot close above 1.0977, we could see a move down into 1.0902 before a pause. If this market continues to sell-off, we could see a sharp move down into 1.0814 by the week’s end.
GBP/USD – 1.2290 ( -179 or -1.44% )
Cable was also down last week but it too is approaching very important support.
Mon 18:30 – Current Account, Final GDP (quarterly)
Tue 18:30 – Manufacturing PMI
Thu 18:30 – Services PMI
For a continued move to the upside, we need to see Cable hold above 1.2195 followed by a close above 1.2297. Should this occur we will love for a move back up into 1.2389, and if momentum is very strong we could see a push higher into 1.2480
If the Pound cannot hold above 1.2195, we are likely to see a quick move down into 1.2000. A break below this level could see a fast move down to 1.1896, and if momentum is strong to the downside we could see a fast move down into 1.1800.
USD/JPY – 107.93 ( +38 or +0.35% )
The $/YEN sold off early in the week however closed strongly following a mid-week reversal.
For a move to the upside we must now see this market hold above 107.75, on its way to retesting 108.31 before a pause. A strong break and close above this level could then see the $/YEN rally into 109.21, and if momentum is very strong we could see moves to 109.94.
If we cannot hold above 107.75, we could see a fast move lower into 107.36. A break below this level may result in a retest of 106.52 before a pause; however any breaks below this level could mean a very sharp move down to 105.50.
GOLD – 1496 ( -20 -1.32% )
Last week we said “Gold continues to find support at key levels…” and this behaviour has yet to change. We will be discussing this market in detail in the LIVE CHAT ROOM.
For a continued move higher we must now see this market close above 1505. Should this occur, we will look for a move to 1526 ; and if momentum remains very strong, a strong break above this level could see Gold rally quickly into 1540 and 1552.
If Gold cannot close above 1505, we will look for a move back down into 1480. A strong break and close below this level could send this market lower into 1470, and if momentum is strong to the downside we cannot rule out a move lower into 1450.
