DJIA at 17,959.64 has come down to re-test Key support at 18000 and broke it. It had difficulty in breaking below 18000 since the last 2-months and the inability to do so near term could produce a sharp bounce to the Northside. But a clear break takes the index to lower levels of 17900-17,700 medium term.

Commentary: Precious metals have risen sharply while Copper has tested important resistance and could see some downward correction near term. Crude Oil has come down sharply too, but is testing interim support at current marks. Need to see if Crude Oil bounces back to join the up move with the precious metals or come down to join the fall in Copper.PE
