US 30 has rallied up from 17,530 toward 17,650 but between the index faltering near 17,660 resistance and dropping back plus RSI remaining below 50 this still appears to be a trading bounce within a larger downswing with support in the 17,520 to 17,560 zone then 17,500 and 17,415.

US NDAQ 100 continues to bounce around between 4,555 and 4,635 consolidating recent gains. RSI holding 50 indicates underlying uptrend remains intact.

US SPX 500 jumped from near 2,085 toward 2,110 but has run into resistance there again, still well short of the 2,135 channel top. Next support near 2,100. RSI bouncing around 50 indicates a sideways trend.

Gold has climbed up from $1,085 toward $1,093 on USD softness but with resistance at $1,100 still formidable, this still looks like a trading bounce to ease an oversold RSI within the context of an ongoing downtrend.

Crude Oil WTI appears to be on the verge of another breakdown, falling from $46.40 resistance back toward a retest of $45.00 even dipping down toward 44.80 with next potential support near$43.60 on a breakdown. RSI still really oversold so selloff so a snap back bounce possible too.

EURJPY held 135.15 Fibonacci support and has bounced back up above 136.00 with nest resistance near 137.40. A move up through 137,.90 remains necessary to call off a head and shoulders top that has been forming.
