Guesstimates on October 26, 2018
December S&P E-mini Futures: The ES is probably on its way to the February low of 2529 but there is also strong support at 2590. Resistance above the market is at 2724. The S&P 500, the Dow, and the New York Stock Exchange advance-decline ratio are all trading below their respective 200 day moving averages. This is not necessarily terminal for the bull market – it happened in 2010, 2011, and 2016 and in each case new bull market highs followed. Still, with the current bull market nearing the 10 year market it makes sense to take these moving average penetrations seriously.
QQQ: The drop from 187 will probably continue to 157 or so.
TNX (ten year note yield): Support remains at 2.70%. Next upside target is 3.50%. Rising interest rates are good news for the stock market because they signify that confidence in future growth is being restored. This in turn means that investors will try to put the huge supply of central bank liquidity to work in risky assets. This process will drive world wide stock market prices higher.
Euro-US Dollar: It is likely the Euro bear market has resumed. Ultimately it is likely to carry the Euro back down to its 103 low.
Dollar-Yen: A swing up to 117 is likely.
West Texas Crude Oil: Support is 65. A rally past 76 will probably take crude up to 90.
Gold: Resistance in the 1215-20 zone has failed and is now support. Upside target is 1265.
Silver: Silver is headed for 12.50 and possibly lower.
Google: Support is at 1060.
Apple: AAPL is headed for 250.
Facebook: FB has support at 150. I think FB will move to new highs before this bull market is over.
Twitter: TWTR has poked its nose back above 30. If it can stay there a big rally will ensue. In the meantime I am sticking with a bearish prognosis.
Alibaba: There is a good chance that BABA has made or will make its low in the 130-135 zone.
Visa: Support is now 125.
