Key Stock Indexes, Crude, Gold & Silver Markets Briefing
$DIA, $GLD, $SLV, $OIL, $USO, $CU
DJIA at 20812.24, -0.12% paused near current marks making a small Red-candle after a long rally from levels near 20061. We may expect a small corrective dip possibly towards 20600 levels before again bouncing higher. Though post-Donald Trump’s speech to Congress, the futures are trading higher, and we may have seen the “small dip” we will see.
DAX at 11834.41, +0.10% is finding it difficult to move up above 11860 in here and could possibly trade sideways for a couple of sessions before moving North towards 12000.
Nikkei at 19222.56, +0.54% trades flat, but may be ready for a break out in the next few sessions on either side of the 19400-19000. In case it breaks South, it would support the resistance on USD/JPY near 113.75.
Shanghai at 3257.02, +0.47% trade slightly higher Wednesday, and could move towards 3275 near term. Failure to move above 3275 near term could indicate some sideways movement within the 3225-3275 range in here.
Nifty at 8879.60, -0.19% closed exactly at the 8880 called as the lower limit of the 8960-8880 range. A close below 8880, if seen could confirm the start of a near term corrective dip that may extend towards 8800 or lower medium term.
Crude Oil, Gold, Silver & Copper Markets
Gold at 1247 moved lower in line with expectations and trading within its Bullish trading range of 1217-1274. A close below 1230 could dampen its upward momentum.
Silver at 18.32 holds Key support at 18, a possibility of a decline towards 18 cannot be be ruled out.A close below 17.80 could be a trend reversal.
Copper at 2.71 was unable to close above its pivot at 2.75 of its recent trading range of 2.60-83, it is still holding its upward trend line support at 2.68-70 since 16 October .
Note: US ISM Manufacturing PMI data at 8.30a EST, which could influence the price of Copper and Silver markets.
