Technical Forecast for S&P 500, DAX 30, Gold Price, Crude Oil & More

2019-01-16 14:25:00

Share:

The S&P 500 is rising into resistance and should soon find sellers, once it does a solid decline should give the shorts the upper hand. The DAX is lagging the U.S. markets while facing off with several angles of resistance. Gold is nearing the apex of a short-term triangle formation, awaiting a breakout for directional cues. Crude oil is likely to undergo a choppy period of trading, with a downward bias.

Technical Highlights:

  • S&P 500 and DAX 30 have resistance to contend with
  • Gold is triangulating, breakout to develop at any time
  • Crude oil looks headed for choppy period, downward bias

New Quarterly Forecasts are out, check them out along with other helpful resources on the DailyFX Trading Guides page.

S&P 500 and DAX 30 have resistance to contend with

The S&P 500 continues to rise but with resistance in the area and the market far from being in the clear, a decline is expected to unfold soon. The key right now is watching price action. The levels are there to turn the market lower but we need to see sellers step in and solidify those levels before turning aggressively bearish.

The DAX is struggling to continue recovering and remains glaringly lagging the stronger U.S. market. There is a slope from October, price resistance from December and a trend-line from September keeping a lid on the current advance. The positive right now, though, is that the market has yet to forcefully turn down despite reason to. A break below 10786 is likely needed before downward momentum can come in.

Gold is triangulating, breakout to develop at any time

Gold is coiling up towards a breakout from a triangle on the 4-hr time-frame. A top-side breakout will have price resistance in focus in the 1305/10-area while a breakdown will have slope support from the summer in focus.

Crude oil looks headed for choppy period, downward bias

Crude oil is chopping around after hitting off near resistance last week. Expectations are for WTI to continue to chop around, and if stocks weaken soon as expected then oil could come under pressure again. Watch support just above 49.
