Futures on the broad U.S. stock index S&P 500 again reached the level of 1870 and the upper boundary of the local downstream channel. For further growth the price needs to gain a foothold above these levels. We recommend opening short positions with a small stop above the nearest local maximum 1874 and targets at 1840 and 1813. We expect the resumption of the downward movement of the futures and keep long-term negative outlook on the U.S. market.
Nearest support levels: 1858, 1840, 1813, 1800, 1780
Nearest resistance levels: 1880, 1900, 1950
The price of euro after a long consolidation broke through the border of the corridor 1,3810-1,3850. To continue the downward movement the price needs to fix below the level of 1.3790. In such case the objectives will be at 1.3750 and 1.3700. Growth is limited by a strong resistance level at 1.3900. We look forward to continuing the downward movement and keep a long-term negative outlook.
