The US stock market is finally reacting to the coronavirus situation as it becomes more acute. Up until the past few days US indices remained suspended in record territory, but that is changing now with long-term trend support via the 200-day MAs coming under fire. The Dow Jones is already below the threshold (27230 on cash index), while the S&P is another down-day away (3044 on cash index).

For the Dow there is also trend-line support from June to watch around the 200-day, we may see a day this week result into a volatile turnabout as often times happens upon the first test of major long-term support. Trying to catch a bounce isn’t for the faint of heart. Shorts, however, at this juncture do appear to be at high risk of a sharp snapback.

Crude oil is rolling over again following a temporary reprieve. The trend-line from 2016 is getting tested at the moment and could mark an important event. A hold keeps a floor in oil for now, but a breakdown could spell trouble as the next significant level of support isn’t until the December low at 42.20. If we have indeed hit a bit of a panic-point with equities, then look for oil to hold support.

Gold was ramping up on haven flows, but has run out of steam the past couple of days. If we see even a minor bounce in the risk-trade, then look for gold to trade off as fear abates. Overall, though, gold is still sitting bullish in the big-picture. There may be an upper hand here soon for short-term, nimble traders to establish shorts, but broadly the bias is towards weakness becoming buying opportunities.
