Guesstimates on November 2, 2018
December S&P E-mini Futures: The ES has rallied to within nine points of 2775 resistance. I think this resistance will ultimately fail and if so the way will be cleared for a swing up to new bull market highs. Until the 2775 resistance fails keep in mind that the S&P 500, the Dow, and the New York Stock Exchange advance-decline ratio are still 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. But 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 has probably ended. If so next upside target is 195.
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 at 65 is wobbling and another step down will take crude to 58.. A rally past 76 will probably take crude up to 90.
Gold: Support is in the 1215-20 zone. Upside target is 1265.
Silver: Silver is headed for 12.50 and possibly lower.
Google: I think GOOG has ended its drop from its 1295 high. If not then 975 is the worst I see on the downside.
Apple: AAPL is headed for 250. Support is at 198.
Facebook: FB has support at 150. I think FB will move to new highs before this bull market is over.
Twitter: TWTR has reestablished itself above 30 and is now likely to return to 48
Alibaba: There is a good chance that BABA has made its low in the 130-135 zone.
Visa: Support is now 125.
