A daily summary of high-profile members of several complexes.
Gold Aug Contract (GC, ETF: (GLD))
Sunday night’s $1,294.00 per oz. low was recovered to attack Friday’s 1303.00 high to within $1. Much of it was retraced to turn slightly negative into the afternoon, still needing a fresh low close to confirm momentum has reversed back down.
Silver Jul Contract (SI, ETF: (SLV))
Surging into Monday’s open tested 16.55 before reversing back down and piercing negative territory under 16.45, still not yet confirming the near-term resolution will resume the decline.
Eurodollar Jun Contract (EC, ETF: (FXE, UUP))
Thursday and Friday’s failed pre-open rallies were never actually rejected, only retraced, which kept alive the 1.1755 bounce potential. Its eventual test before Monday’sopen reacted down sharply to 1.1688, stopping optimistically short of filling the gap back down to Friday’s 1.1672 close. Not actually filling the gap before trying to rally would be premature, and likely to retest recent lows.
30-year Treasury Sep Contract (US, ETF: (TLT))
[Rolling coverage forward to Sep, which trades at a 28-tick discount from Jun]… Gapping back down to 142-24 Monday — which had held Tuesday and Wednesday’spullbacks — eked lower intraday to attack 147-00. A gap there on the way up now offers obligatory support on the way down, but the decline has little if any time to delay resolving down if that’s it’s intent.
Crude oil Jul Contract (CL, ETF: (USO, USL) (UWTI-long, DWTI-short))
The reversal down from having triggered the 67.90 buy signal extended to fresh relative lows Monday testing $64.60 per barrel. That’s “lower prior highs” from earlier this year, a likely at least to produce an obligatory bounce.
Natural gas Jul Contract (NG, ETF: (UNG, UNL))
Monday’s narrow flat-to-lower range was more confirming to Friday’s own narrow range, than to Thursday’s breakout that still lacks a higher confirming close. A second consecutive higher close would be preferable.
