E-mini S&P (March) / E-mini NQ (March)

S&P, last week’s close: Settled at 4916.25, down 7.00 on Friday and up 46.75 on the week

NQ, last week’s close: Settled at 17,527.00, down 107.50 on Friday and up 88.50 on the week

Are the E-mini S&P and E-mini NQ developing bull-flag patterns? A constructive response to the first two tiers of support will encourage such a pattern to unfold, though price action will be increasingly fundamental as the week unfolds and is highlighted by mega-cap earnings, the Federal Reserve policy decision, and Nonfarm Payrolls.

Bias: Neutral/Bullish

Resistance: 4923.25-4926.50**, 4931.75-4934.25***, 4981-5000****

Pivot: 4916.75

Support: 4907.25**, 4895.25-4898.25**, 4889.25**, 4881-4884**, 4873.25-4875.25***, 4869.50***, 4859.75-4861.75**, 4845**, 4836.50-4841.50***, 4825.50-4826**, 4815.75-4817**, 4808.50-4811.75****

NQ (March)

Resistance: 17,626-17,640***, 17,679-17,695***, 17,765-17,794***, 17,996-18,000****

Crude Oil (March)

Last week’s close: Settled at 78.01, up 0.65 on Friday and 4.76 on the week

Bias: Neutral/Bullish

The Sunday opening spike in Crude Oil futures has not been retested and achieved a critical area of resistance. It would be prudent to monetize the three-session range breakout that tested the highest level since the November 30th spike.

Resistance: 79.57-79.65***

Pivot: 78.01-78.21

Support: 77.41-77.64***, 76.31-76.70**, 75.83-76.06**, 75.08-75.29***

Gold (April) / Silver (March)

Gold, last week’s close: Settled 2036.1, down 0.7 on Friday and 12.5 on the week

Silver, last week’s close: Settled at 22.872, down 0.055 on Friday and up 0.161 on the week

Gold and Silver futures face a pivotal week ahead with the Federal Reserve policy decision on Wednesday, surrounded by a deluge of data ranging from Chinese Manufacturing (Tuesday night) to Nonfarm Payroll (Friday). The Sunday night opening spike will provide a line in the sand that price action must chew through. A failure to hold the pivot and point of balance will work to erode what is developing as a potential positive market shift.

Bias: Neutral/Bullish

Resistance: 2051.4-2054.5**, 2057.2-2061.2***, 2070.7-2071.4***

Pivot: 2042.9-2045.7

Support: 2036.1-2037.7***, 2031.8**, 2023.3-2026***

Silver (March)

Resistance: 23.11-23.15***, 23.23**, 23.33** 23.68-23.76****

Pivot: 23.00

Support: 22.81-22.87***, 22.74***, 22.58-22.63***, 22.38-22.42***
