We touched the AWR low and pulled back off of it. Possible resistance above, if we break it could become support for a move up.

If today's high stays in place, I believe that becomes a high on the opposite side of the channel + below the 5 SMA creates a Pascal Sell signal. Will be interesting as this would be the first time we haven't touched it in the last week or so.

50 SMA is above and we touched it and pulled back (correlated with the AWR low).

And below is a money flow chart showing crude rocketing...

Break of bear channel. I believe 4200 is a reasonable target for now.

Pascal sell signal did not fire, we also kept the trend of testing the 5 SMA. If we get a day above the SMA with the low at the other side of the envelope then that will be a buy signal and can mark the reversal up.

Globex is a large two bar bull reversal bar. Very strong and bullish buy signal.

Pascal buy signal, todays low above the 5 SMA and on the other side of the envelope. Current down trend should be dead, we should be in a new leg up towards ATH's.

End of the Year

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Here is 2014 in her glory. I believe we will see ATH's by the end of the year, and early January will be marred by a pullback in which CNBC will question for the 20th time if the bull market is dead. Overall I don't care either way. But I believe 2015 will be a good year. If 2014 is any example it will take some work to get there.

This will be my last post here in the NQ thread until at least the first week of January. Hope everyone have a wonderful holiday season.

NQ failed to make a new high, ES did, there is now a divergence there. From time to time the NQ or TF will diverge first and the other markets will follow. NQ is double topped at the moment. Could be a sign of a top. If signal fails it could trap bears (again) and rally to new highs.

A few meaningful gaps below that could be filled.

Today is looking like there could be a potential double bottom / MTR forming at the moment if it works target is VWAP. If it fails we could see 4050 below.

TradeTheNews.com Weekly Market Update: New Year's Blues

Trading volumes were very light in the New Year's holiday week. Global equity markets dipped during the final session of 2014 and then fell lower on the first day of trading in the New Year as weak data and jitters about upcoming Fed and ECB action drove risk appetite into the deep freeze. Manufacturing industry data from around the globe out this week was not especially positive, adding to the tepid atmosphere.

Looking back, 2014 was very good for major US equities: the S&P 500 rose 11% to 2,059, its sixth year of positive returns and its third straight year of double-digit gains. The DJIA added 7.5% to 17,823 after slipping below 18,000 on the final two days of trading, and the Nasdaq advanced 13%. Small-cap stocks were not quite as solid: the Russell 2000 climbed 3.5%. Europe's EuroStoxx 600 Index gained 3.9% on the year and Germany's DAX Index added 2.7%, although France's CAC40 dropped 1.2%. Chinese equities had their best performance since 2009 even as overall emerging-market shares posted the first back-to-back annual loss in 12 years.

US housing market data out this week remained tepid. The S&P/CaseShiller October home price survey showed that real estate price gains slowing a bit. The y/y gain dropped to +4.5% from +4.8% in September. Yale economist Shiller commented that the housing market is fragile and is still reliant on low interest rates. The November pending home sales m/m figure beat expectations and returned to positive territory after October's contraction. The December Chicago Purchasing Manager survey and the ISM Manufacturing Index missed expectations, hitting their lowest levels since mid-2014.

Oil prices sagged to fresh five-year lows, with front-month WTI dropping from the mid-$55 area on Monday as low as $52.50 on Wednesday. The contract bounced off the lows but by Friday came very close to the $52 level. Brent crude bottomed around $55.50 but closed out the week around $56. Interestingly the oil equities themselves continue hold up better. The OIH and XLE remain above their mid-December lows which expedited the latest move to fresh all-time highs for US stock indices.

Comments from ECB President Draghi and ECB Chief Economist Praet left little doubt that quantitative easing is imminent. On Tuesday, Praet said euro zone inflation was below 0% and would stay there for an extended period. The official December euro zone CPI reading is out next week could cement expectations for European QE after the November reading matched a 4-year low at 0.3%. Praet argued that sovereign bonds were the only asset class with enough volume to make an impact on the inflation issue. Draghi was less sanguine, but highlighted that the risk of deflation in euro zone cannot be ruled out. Unsurprisingly, various German figures refuted these assertions. Germany's 'wisemen' said there was no deflation while the CDU Deputy party Chairman Fuchs said the euro zone was no longer obligated to rescue Greece as they were no longer systemically important. Between imminent QE and the Greek situation, EUR/USD gravitated toward the psychological 1.2000 level (though did not break through) and the 10-year bund yield fell to fresh all-time lows of 0.49% while the 5-year now offers a negative yield for the first time ever.

The Greek political crisis helped push yield spreads to fresh record levels as the Greek 10-year yield approached 10% even as most other EU government bonds are at or near record low yields. After lawmakers rejected the government's candidate for president last weekend, Greek PM Samaras was forced to dissolve the parliament and call a general election on January 25th. Polls showed Syriza, the leftist, anti-bailout opposition party of Alexis Tsipras, to be the frontrunner in the race. Tsipras has promised to get a better deal from the Troika on Greece's bailout payments. The EU has sternly warned that any new government must abide by prior obligations, suggesting that in the event of a Syriza victory irreconcilable differences could lead to a "Grexit."

China's official December Manufacturing PMI survey hit its lowest level since mid-2013, even as the non-manufacturing survey recovered to a four-month high. Manufacturing PMI components New Orders and Output were at 2014 lows, and inventories and employment were at 10-month lows. November industrial profits data fell by 4.2%, the largest y/y decline in 27 months. The PBoC published a report confirming that the government would change the rules on loan-to-deposit ratio calculations in 2015 to inject further liquidity into the system. The new rules would allow the inclusion of savings held by banks for non-deposit-taking financial institutions in banks' deposits, expanding the ratios and boosting lending capacity.

In Japan, Prime Minister Abe continues to fine-tune his efforts to extinguish deflation and jumpstart the economy. The government said it is planning a $29B (•3.5T) fiscal stimulus package, featuring subsidies for households to help stimulate consumption along with more relief for earthquake-hit areas. The plan is estimated to add 0.7% to 2015 GDP growth. The government also announced it would aim to cut the corporate tax rate to below 30% over the next several years. The FY15/16 tax reform will cut the corporate rate to 32.1% from 34.6%.

A little random line I draw earlier this week seemed to be in play today.

Is this the low?

No other real commentary other then I agree with something @srgtroy said today that it seems the price action front runned the FOMC announcement. But after 2 volatile days having a range day seems about right. May be the consolidation before Friday's job number.
