Pivot is the Key For Direction in S&P Index

Jack Broz


Comments : US 30-Year Bond: Trade above 150.14 targets 150.24. Taking out 148.01 moves to at least 147.17. US 10-Year Treasury Note: Favor the bears below 133.105. (trade below 132.125 projects to 131.01). Note the upside targets if trade stays firm. US 5-Year Treasury Note: The pivot lends some resistance - but go with the bulls if they take it out; everything upside EXCEPT 125.115 is a logical target/test price. Weakness seeks 124.025. S&P500 Stock Index: Trade above 1422.30 targets 1434.50. The pivot is KEY for direction; I'll look for at least 1385.75 if 1392.75 get taken out.
