Guesstimates on December 12, 2018
December S&P E-mini Futures: The ES is headed for resistance in the 2698-2710 zone. A rally above this zone would mean that the drop from the September 21 top is over and that new bull market highs lie ahead.
QQQ: The Q’s made a higher low Monday in contrast to the lower low in the S&P. This is the first sign that the drop from the top at 187 may be over. Resistance now is at 167 and 175.
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: Downside target is 103.
Dollar-Yen: A swing up to 117 is likely.
West Texas Crude Oil: A drop visibly below 50 would be likely to continue to 43 and possibly lower.
Gold: The 1250-60 zone is likely to halt the rally and the downside target remains 1125.
Silver: Silver is headed for 12.50 and possibly lower.
Google: I think GOOG is headed above its last top at 1295.
Apple: AAPL is headed for 160.
Facebook: FB is likely to hold support at 125.
Twitter: TWTR has reestablished itself above 30 in the face of the tech massacre 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. A rally to 175 is underway.
Visa: Support remains at 125.
