Have the Indices broken out of their consolidation patterns? And a higher close for Eurodollar futures
INDICES: 12/03/10 Higher closes yesterday for the Dow and cash futures along with the S&P’s and nasdaq again. All of the indices are still in uptrends overall in my opinion making their best highs and closes in over two weeks after breaking out of their respective consolidation patterns. They now should test their highs made back in November.
FINANCIALS: 12/03/10 Higher eurodollars close Thursday while lower for notes and bonds for the second trading session in a row.The eurodollar followed through higher again after Wednesday’s reversal type action. However,the eurodollar is now in a strong resistance area as shown below. The notes and bonds settled lower again with the former making its worst low and close since early August and the latter its worst close since July 29th.
Special Note for Cotton Traders: The daily price limit for Friday, December 3 will expand to 6 cents.
