Stocks are about unchanged.  Shanghai was up 1.2% overnight; Europe is slightly lower over concerns about banks.  There was a rumor going around yesterday about a bank in trouble; a couple of European names were thrown around.  BP announced a huge oil find in the Gulf of Mexico, this is helping European stocks.  There’s a lot of second tier news today-the ADP employment report, Q2 productivity, DOE crude inventories, and the minutes of the latest FOMC meeting at 1 PM.  Financial markets are trying to divine Friday’s employment report, so we’ll watch ADP, although it isn’t a great predictor for NFP, if I remember correctly.  Tomorrow we hear the size of next week’s Treasury auctions; there will be a lot of new paper to take down (again).  The ADP report showed a 298K decline in payrolls; weaker than the 250K expected.

Sept S&P:  It’s on a momentum buy signal; support is at the overnight low of 992.25.  Regaining 1000 aids the bulls.
Sept. NASDAQ:  Another momentum buy signal; 1585 is support.
Dec. T Bonds:  Continues to trade at the July highs around 120.  Momentum indicates it may have a hard time advancing today.
Dollar Index:  Yesterday I wrote about the triangle in the DX; I didn’t expect a breakout until Friday.  (Read it here:
Sept Japanese Yen:  Breakout day, broke over the recent high at 10808.  The first Trade or Fade target is 10862, the July highs just over 109 are the next target for a breakout.
Sept. EuroFX:  Momentum buy day; it’s holding Fibonacci retracement support at 14184.
Sept. British Pound:  Momentum buy day; it regained last week’s low of 16152.  The first rally objective was me at 16241; there’s trendline resistance at 16335.
Sept. Canadian Dollar:  Momentum is on a buy signal, but it doesn’t look good.  Watch trendline support at 9019.
Dec. Gold:  It rallied $10 in 20 minutes; I didn’t see any news yet.  Momentum was bullish, and it cleared last week’s high of 964.50The July high at 974.30 is the next rally objective.
Dec. Silver:  It had its rally yesterday, so it’s not following gold today.  It’s on a momentum sell short signal.  Resistance is the July high of 1522.5, support is 1490 then 1483.
Dec. Copper:  Downside breakout under 280 support in spite of a momentum buy signal.
Dec. Cocoa:  It’s a momentum sell short day; Trade or Fade gave an NR4 breakout signal for today. Watch support at today’s low of 2816.
Oct. Sugar:    A weak close after a new contract high yesterday was a bearish sign.  Momentum is down to buy signal levels; watch support at the breakout level of 2333.
