A daily summary of high-profile members of several complexes.
Gold Dec Contract (GC, ETF: (GLD))
Wednesday's gap up back to last week's 1280.00 prior highs fluctuated there intraday, leaving gaps outstanding below to at least 1271.00 before any further rally would be credible for gaining traction.
Eurodollar Sep Contract (EC, ETF: (FXE, UUP))
Slightly lower lows Wednesday didn't extend beyond the "lower prior highs" that must hold to maintain potential for one more fresh high in the 1.1945-1.1970 area.
Silver Sep Contract (SI, ETF: (SLV))
Gapping up Wednesday to last week's 16.85 highs fluctuated there through the day. Closing any higher would have been bullish before the interim collapse, but now there are gaps outstanding below. At least a dip to 16.60 is likely.
30-year Treasury Sep Contract (US, ETF: (TLT))
Gapping up probed the prior high and tested the longstanding 155-08 objective, neutralizing its attraction. Closing back under 154-30 would suggest the retest and neutralization will hold for a top to form, and 154-16 was already being tested into the afternoon. Somehow closing Thursday above Wednesday's high would invalidate Wednesday's weaker close.
Crude Oil Sep Contract (CL, ETF: (USO, USL) (UWTI-long, DWTI-short))
Intraday action continues to lack volatility as the ranging persists between 48.25-50.10. The calm seems eerie during the volatility being seen elsewhere, but that is not unusual, and it is often followed by hyper-volatility that compensates for the delay.
Natural Gas Sep Contract (NG, ETF: (UNG, UNL))
Tuesday's second consecutive higher close launched a gap up Wednesday that trended higher intraday to attack 2.92 resistance. The bottom has Island-like characteristics that suggest its 2.82 "lower prior high" will be retested. That would not be inappropriate in reaction to Thursday's EIA report, which is being greeted from a position of strength.
