US NDAQ 100 has retested 4,700 as new higher support and moved back up into the 4,720 to 4,730 range just below 4,740 where action could confirm a double top or signal the start of a new upleg. Support remains in place near 4,685.

Crude Oil WTI is breaking down today, taking out $38,80 to signal a new downleg then taking out the August low near $37.40 and testing it as new resistance. Next support possible in the $34.75 to $35.00 area near the 2008 low. RSI oversold but confirms downward momentum growing again.


US Dollar Index has climbed back up toward 98.85 but with RSI still below 50 and the index still in the lower half of Thursday’s trading range and the index still below 99.00, this appear to be more of a trading bounce than a serious turnaround.

EURUSD has a big support test underway near $1.0790 toy its recent breakout point and a previous support level. RSI 50 support is also being tested. Success would confirm the start of a new uptrend with initial upside tests near $1.0870 then $1.0885. Next downside support near $1.0735.

NZDUSD has been bashed back down into the $0.6640 to $0.6660 area after running into resistance near $0.6780 last week and $0.6730 today. RSI falling back toward 50 suggests a correction underway within an ongoing uptrend.

USDJPY is steady just above 123.00 within its 122.75 to 123.75 trading channel. A head and shoulders top in the RSI suggests upward momentum may be peaking.
