Looking Ahead to Today by Reflecting Back at Thursday’s Price Action


Unchanged settlement Thursday for the eurodollar but lower for the notes and bonds. The eurodollar equaled its CONTRACT HIGH AND CLOSE while the bonds and notes still look lower overall continuing in their respective resistance areas. The notes are also forming a larger potential topping formation at this time.
