VOLATILITY ALERTS:
Tue 11:30 – NAB Business Confidence
Wed 10:30 – Westpac Consumer Sentiment

For a continued move higher we must now see the ASX close above 6635. Should this occur, we will look for a test of 6682. If momentum to the upside continues we could see a retest of 6804, and if momentum is very strong we cannot rule out rule out a move to 6850.

If the ASX cannot close above 6635, we will look for a move back down to 6544. A strong break and close below this level however could see the ASX retest 6500 before a pause; and if downside momentum is very strong, we could see a move down to 6435.

For a continued move to the upside we must see the DAX close above 12198. Should this occur, we will look for a move into 12384 before a pause. If momentum is very strong we cannot rule out a blow off move to 12566 and 12750.

If the DAX fails to close above 12198, we will look for a move back down to 11875. Any break below this level however could see the DAX sell-off sharply into 11755 this week; and if downside momentum is very strong we cannot rule out a move down to 11519.

The $/YEN continues to exhibit weakness but like other markets it too is at a very key level.

For a move to the upside we must now see this market hold above 106.52, on its way to retesting 107.25 before a pause. A strong break and close above this level could then see the $/YEN rally into 107.75, and if momentum is very strong, we could see a move into 108.31.

If we cannot hold above 106.52, we could see a fast move lower into 105.50. A break below this level may result in a move down to 104.97. Any further breaks to the downside could see the $/YEN end up at 103.99 by the week’s end.
