REMEMBER…ALWAYS USE STOPS
A reversal in equities on huge volume…the third largest volume of the year behind March 15th and 16th, which was the last low. High volume spikes often indicate panic lows – how long the low lasts varies of course. We could also get several down days in a row with high volume as we did in March. In any case, 1275 is near term resistance in the S&P index – the 3/16 (and 2011) low at 1249.05 is in focus along with the trendline from the 2009 low – at about 1235 tomorrow.
-EURUSD daily range was the 3rd largest of the year behind May 5 (down) and Jan 13 (up). Both of those days signaled the beginning of new trends. Near term support is 14120 and I’m looking to short a bounce into 14230/60 in expectation of a break below the May low.
-AUDUSD reversal suggests that the secondary top is indeed 10775 and that price is headed below 10440 and to 10200/50 (former breakout level). 10200 is also the 100% extension of the decline from the top and intersects with channel support at the end of June. AUDUSD resistance is 10590-10610.
-The USDCHF has broken higher and reached the 8550 area (20 day avg / support in May). Near term support is 8480/60 – look higher towards trendline resistance, which is above 8700.
