The futures markets in general had some “futures trading to make up” after the long weekend and we some strong moves and bit more volatility in variety of commodity and futures markets.
I mentioned on Friday blog:
“Stock indices are getting a bit oversold and I suspect that sometime next week we should see a good, short covering rally. However, i don’t try to predict when it will happen but rather use price action with support/resistance lines to get a confirmation. Daily chart of the e mini Russell 2000 for your review below. A break above 613 would give me more confidence in taking a trade from the long side, until then the trend is still pointing lower.”
Well.. today we did see a nice rally that peaked at 612.20 on Sept. mini Russell and headed south afterwards.
In today’s chart I decided to share the popular and followed Dow Jones index. Same analysis from Friday still holds. While indices may be oversold, I would like to see more follow through on the buy side instead of price failure like we saw in today’s session. 9913 is my level to watch on the Dow Jones cash index.
