On 12/11/2021 TraderTalent.com is bringing you another guest post from Bryan Noble.

U.S. Equity Markets finished yesterday’s trading session mixed, as the Dow closed lower while both the S&P 500 and NASDAQ closed in positive territory. Earnings season unofficially wrapped up yesterday afternoon with Disney’s (DIS) quarterly report. This quarter, earnings continued to beat estimates at historically elevated rates. That should serve as a continued tailwind for markets. There was also positive news on the U.S.’s relationship with China, with U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai said progress was being made with China. It was a relatively quiet day otherwise, with bond markets closed for the Veterans Day holiday. While President Joe Biden plans to sign the infrastructure bill into law next week, the path forward for his $1.8 trillion budget proposal is still cloudy. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) continued to block the bill, saying that he was concerned for the package’s impact on inflation. European Markets closed higher. The European Central Bank’s monthly Economic Bulletin showed the regional economy continues to rebound, but supply constraints are holding back manufacturing output. The European Commission’s economic forecast said gross domestic product (“GDP”) should expand 5% this year and 4.3% next year as inflation pressures fade. European Central Bank Governing Council member Robert Holzmann said it could stop bond purchases next fall if inflation can sustain the 2% target. In Asia, China’s government is easing curbs on property developers to spur lending and economic growth, according to state-run media outlet China Securities Journal. Japan’s preliminary machine tool order data for October rose versus September, as foreign demand continued to surge, hitting its highest level this year. Bank of Korea Governor Lee Ju-yeol said he was uncertain if inflation would prove temporary, backing down from previous statements ahead of this month’s policy announcement. Australia’s unemployment numbers for October were higher than expected, as COVID restrictions weighed on hiring. Elsewhere, Oil fell 0.17% after OPEC said that high oil prices could hurt demand, while Gold rose 0.90% after Wednesday’s higher than expected inflation data.

December S&P 500

Unfortunately, the S&P missed my 4662 sell level by one handle before falling 15 full points into the close and I am still flat. Ahead of the weekend I will now raise my sell level slightly to 4664/4679 with the same 4687 ‘’Closing Stop’’. Meanwhile, I will leave my 4608/4623 buy level unchanged with the same 4595 ”Closing  Stop”. If I am taken short I will have a T/P level at 4654. If I am taken long I will have a T/P level at 4636.

EUR/USD

I am still flat the Euro as the market made new lows for 2021 but still fell shy of my initial 1.1440 buy level. I will now lower my buy level slightly to 1.1370/1.1420 with a lower 1.1325 stop. If I am taken long I will have a T/P level at 1.1460.

December Dollar Index

The Dollar rallied to my second sell level at 95.10 for a now 94.85 average short position. I will leave my 95.45 stop while raising my T/P level to 94.65. If any of the above levels are hit I will be back with a new update for my Platinum Members.

December DAX

Despite the sell-off in U.S. Indexes, the DAX traded higher, hitting my 16090 sell level. I am still short with a now higher 16055 T/P level. I will add to this trade at 16150 while leaving my 16205 stop unchanged.

December FTSE

The continued weakness in Sterling saw the FTSE trade the whole of my sell range for a now 7350 average short position. I will leave my 7415 stop unchanged while raising my T/P level to 7335.

Dow Rolling Contract

I am still flat the Dow as the market fell shy of yesterday’s buy range. I will now lower my buy level slightly to 35700/35850 with a lower 35545 ‘’Closing Stop’’. Ahead of the weekend I do not want to be short the Dow. If I am taken long I will have a T/P level at 35980.

December NASDAQ

I am still flat the NASDAQ as I continue to be a buyer on any further dip lower to 15820/15920 with the same 15695 ‘’Closing Stop’’. The NDX has resistance from 16110/16200 where I will be a seller with a 16305 ‘’Closing Stop’’. If I am taken long I will have a T/P level at 15980. If I am taken short I will have a T/P level at 16050.

December BUND

My Bund plan worked well with the market trading higher to my 170.80 sell level before selling off to my 170.50 T/P level and I am now flat. Today, I will again be a seller from 170.95/171.45 with a 171.81 stop. If I am taken short I will have a T/P level at 170.60.

Gold Rolling Contract

Gold continues to firm above its 30 – Month Trendline and I am still flat. I will now raise my buy level to 1825/1840 with a 1813 stop. If I am taken long I will have a T/P level at 1847.

Silver Rolling Contract

No Change. I am still a buyer from 23.75/24.35 with the same 23.12 stop. If I am taken long I will have a T/P level 24.65.

Hi Everyone

Despite a 10-year low in the University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment (66.8 versus 72.4 expected) Equity Markets are ignoring the weakness of this report  and have rallied hard since I posted early this morning
As a result, the NDX has hit my sell range and I am now short at 16130. I will continue to add to this trade at 16200
I sold the S&P at a price of 4668 and I will now raise my T/P level on this position to 4660.
The Bund rallied and I am now short at 171.00 with a now higher 17075 T/P level
Earlier the  FTSE traded lower to my 7350 T/P level on yesterday’s 7370 short position and I am now flat.
I am still short the DAX with a now higher 16060 T/P level.
Kind Regards
Bryan
