Retest Interruptus

I was making the argument before the open this morning that equity indices were so close to obvious resistance on NQ, RTY, DAX and ESTX50, that ES might well deliver a lower high this morning and fail hard there. So far that has delivered though this morning’s high might need a retest.

Premarket Video from – Update on ES, NQ, RTY, DAX, ESTX50, SPX, NDX, RUT, CL, NG, GC, SI, HG, ZB, DX:

If this morning’s high area holds, where might SPX be headed next? Well if a bull flag is forming here to set up a high retest before a larger retracement, then the obvious next target would be the 2760s, with some established support in the 2760 area and a possible flag support trendline in that area.

SPX 60min:

Could the retracement go further? Yes, I’m looking particularly at the H&S on RUT, with a target in the 1540 area on a break down. That could be a match with the ES/SPX target area though. Bigger picture the setups, particularly on DAX and ESTX50 are suggesting lower than these levels soon.
