INDICES

For a continued move higher we would like to see the ASX hold above 5671, followed by a strong break and close above 5746. Should this occur we will look for a retest of 5777, and a strong close above this could result in a quick move to 5823. If momentum is strong we will then look for a rally into 5875 and 5921.

If the ASX cannot hold above 5671, we are likely to see another retest of 5606. A close below this level may result in more selling into 5582 and if momentum is very strong 5521 cannot be ruled out.

 

EUROPE

DAX – 12180 ( -72 or -0.59% )

The DAX is once again testing a very key area and we last week we saw the first signs of a potential reversal higher. We will be discussing this market in more detail in the MEMBER PORTAL.

For a continued move to the upside we must now see the DAX close above 12198. Should this occur we will look for a move back up to 12384; and if we can break strongly above this area this sets the DAX up for a retest of 12536. A strong break of 12536 could then see a move into 12714.

If the DAX fails to close above 12198, we are likely to see a move lower into 12044 – 12035. This is a very key area and a break below could see a sharp move down into 11875.

 

US

SP500 – 2473 ( +2 or +0.08% )

The S&P managed to close only marginally higher last week and as such our levels remain the same. This week we have the all-important jobs number.

For a move higher we would like to see the S&P hold above our key level at 2465, followed by a strong break and close above 2477. Should we continue to break higher, we will look for a move to 2511 before another pause.

If we cannot hold above 2465, we will look for a move down to retest 2450. A strong break and close below this level means we could see the S&P trade lower into 2445 and 2440. If momentum to the downside is strong, a move down into 2431 by the end of the week cannot be ruled out.

On the downside, a close below 0.7903 could result in a retest of 0.7833. Should we break lower however, we will look for a move back into 0.7779 and if downside momentum continues we could see 0.7729 quickly before another pause.

A break of this level is very likely to see the GBP/USD test 1.3309, and if momentum is very strong we will look for a move to 1.3534.

If we fail to hold above 1.3035, we will look for a move back down to 1.2868. A break below this level could then see this market trade back into 1.2720 before a pause. If momentum is strong and we break and close below 1.2720, we could see a sharp move lower into 1.2600.

 

USD/JPY – 110.69 ( -44 or -0.4% )

The $/YEN is again trying to form a base however with plenty of data out this week we cannot rule out spike moves to the downside now.

For a continued move to the upside we must now see this market close strongly above 111.09. Should this occur we will look for a move back up to 111.73, and a retest of the key level at 112.22. Should we break and close above 112.22 we could see a strong move into 113.87 – 114.08, and if momentum is very strong a move higher into 114.52 cannot be ruled out by week’s end.

If we cannot close above 111.09, the YEN may see further downside into a key area between 110.10 – 109.94. A strong break and close below 109.94 may result in further downside into 109.21, and if downside momentum is very strong this week 108.31 cannot be ruled out.

If Gold cannot hold above 1257, we will look for a move back down into 1247. A strong break below this level could see a move down into 1235, and if momentum is very strong to the downside we cannot rule out a move to 1222.
