US Stocks Hit Record Highs Over Easter

U.S. Stock Market

Last: 13,600

Pivot: 13,420

Review:

US stocks were higher after the close on Monday, as gains in the Technology, Consumer Goods and Consumer Services sectors led shares upwards. At the close in NYSE, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 1.13% to hit a new all-time high, while the S&P 500 index gained 1.44%, and the NASDAQ Composite index jumped 1.67%.

Technical comment:

The NASDAQ 100 RSI calls for a new upleg.

Preference scenario:

Long positions above 13,420.00, with targets at 13,700.00 & 13,850.00 in extension.

Alternative scenario:

Below 13,420.00, look for further downside with 13,260.00 & 13,080.00 as targets.

Resistance 13,700 13,850 13,920
Support 13,420 13,260 13,080

USD/CAD

Last: 1.2520

Pivot: 1.2745

Review:

Since the start of 2021, the Canadian Dollar is up about one percent against its US cousin, but there are signs that the currency may have touched the bottom.

Technical comment:

The RSI lacks upward momentum.

Preference scenario:

Short positions below 1.2745, with targets at 1.2360 & 1.2220 in extension.

Alternative scenario:

Above 1.2745, look for further upside with 1.2855 & 1.2980 as targets.

Resistance 1.2745 1.2855 1.2980
Support 1.2360 1.2220 1.2100

Gold

Last: 1,728.74

Pivot: 1,760

Review:

Gold futures moved up on Monday to post a slight climb for the session, finding support from some weakness in the US Dollar. However, strength in the US stock market helped to limit the rise of the precious metal. June Gold rose by 40 cents, or 0.02%, to settle at $1,728.80 an ounce for the session.

Technical comment:

The immediate trend remains down but the momentum is weak.

Preference scenario:

Short positions below 1,760.00, with targets at 1,675.00 & 1,640.00 in extension.

Alternative scenario:

Above 1,760.00, look for further upside with 1,795.00 & 1,835.00 as targets.

Resistance 1,835 1,795 1,760
Support 1,675 1,640 1,600
US Stocks Hit Record Highs Over Easter
Oil

Last: 59.02

Pivot: 59.75

Review:

For better or for worse, the world’s oil producers decided last week to defy Saudi Arabia and push for higher output over the next three months. After initially patting them on the back, the market is now saying it was definitely for the worse. Crude prices fell by more than 4% on Monday, reversing the pre-Good Friday rally, as traders frowned upon the decision by OPEC+ to put to rest its year-long production cuts on the assumption of increasing summer demand for oil.

Technical comment:

Even though a continuation of the technical rebound cannot be ruled out, its extent should be limited.

Preference scenario:

Short positions below 59.75, with targets at 58.30 & 57.65 in extension.

Alternative scenario:

Above 59.75, look for further upside with 60.45 & 61.00 as targets.

Resistance 59.75 60.45 61
Support 58.30 57.65 56.65
US Stocks Hit Record Highs Over Easter
EUR/USD

Last: 1.1815

Pivot: 1.1950

Review:

While up so far in April, further increase in the bears’ medium-term momentum may reduce the price further to $1.16, $1.15 and $1.14 levels. In case the bears are interrupted by the bulls, the Euro may reverse and face the resistance levels present at $1.17, $1.18 and $1.19 levels.

Technical comment:

A break below 1.1700 would trigger a drop towards 1.1610.

Preference scenario:

Short positions below 1.1950, with targets at 1.1700 & 1.1610 in extension.

Alternative scenario:

Above 1.1950, look for further upside with 1.2030 & 1.2130 as targets.

Resistance 1.1950 1.2030 1.2130
Support 1.1700 1.1610 1.1495

GBP/USD

Last: 1.3911

Pivot: 1.4

Review:

The GBP/USD currency pair jumped to a three-week high of 1.3913, as the Pound rallied in a dull European session.

Technical comment:

The upward potential is likely to be limited by the resistance at 1.4000.

Preference scenario:

Short positions below 1.4000, with targets at 1.3670 & 1.3450 in extension.

Alternative scenario:

Above 1.4000, look for further upside with 1.4240 & 1.4370 as targets.

Resistance 1.4 1.4240 1.4370
Support 1.3670 1.3450 1.3260
