It was another typical overnight as the Spoos traded in a “tight” 25 point range, down in Asia, up in Europe. Who was it that said that Europeans were dour? Apparently, they’re the cock eyed optimists. Just what are they looking at?
In technical terms the 5 day cycle remains in an up phase. The 2 day cycle turned up with the opening in Europe, and that up phase continues heading toward the NY open. As I write, the Spoos fucutures just busted out through the last 2 day cycle line resistance at 1248, and are headed for the top of the 5 day cycle channels at 1260. If they get through that, the sky’s the limit. Well, not really, letting you in on a bit of insider information, I see potential resistance on the daily charts around SPX cash around 1260 and 1272 (subscribers should check the charts in the Professional Edition market update). The 5 day cycle should peak and pull back today. My guess at this point would be that the 1250-60 area won’t be breached.

UPDATE 9:06 AM With the ECB rate cut announcement, crude is also attempting a breakout. The October 25 pivot high to watch was 94.50.
For every central bank action, there is an equal but opposite, unintended negative consequence. Commodity inflation to the moon would be one.
