A daily summary of high-profile members of several complexes.
Gold Aug Contract (GC, ETF: (GLD))
Probing the 1272.50 buy signal Wednesday had been productive enough to test 1281.00. But it originated too late to be reliable, and the FOMC reaction retraced it all. Trending lower overnight gapped down Thursday to four-week old lows under 1253.00. Unless 1266.25 were recovered, the trend is targeting 1238.00-1239.00.
Eurodollar Jun Contract (EC, ETF: (FXE, UUP))
Wednesday's spike up to the 1.1285 highs was retraced enough to greet the FOMC news back at or under 1.1255. The reaction retraced the morning's upleg, extended down overnight, and gapped down Thursday to fresh lows testing 1.1133. While this likely fulfills the pattern's requirement for a third lower close, it also likely launches a downleg targeting 1.1110 and 1.0995.
Silver Jul Contract (SI, ETF: (SLV))
Wednesday's surge was retraced entirely after the close in reaction to the FOMC statement. Gapping down Thursday tested Tuesday's Island at 16.70. Closing back above 17.00 would complete a Double Bottom, but the trend otherwise remains down.
30-year Treasury Sep Contract (US, ETF: (TLT))
Surging already to 156-05 before Wednesday's FOMC statement was retraced to test critical support at 155-04, whose break would signal a retest of the range's lower-end at 153-29, and probably also the range's break lower.
Crude Oil Jul Contract (CL, ETF: (USO, USL) (UWTI-long, DWTI-short))
Wednesday's drop had filled the gap back to the prior Wednesday's 45.29 open under all prior lows, and then closed lower. Closing lower Thursday forms a continuation pattern suggesting the decline is not yet nearing a bottom. Closing back above 46.20 would help resume the bottoming pattern.
Natural Gas Jul Contract (NG, ETF: (UNG, UNL))
The knee-jerk reaction to Thursday's EIA report was a sharp rally from the new low close at 2.95 up to 3.06. Having originated from a new low close, the bounce is expected to be retraced. Meanwhile, the bounce does create extra room to expend selling pressure before it can further damage the chart, which allows for a bottom to form.
