Major Market Ranges for Week of Dec. 1: New Directional Trends
12/02/2019 9:15 am EST
Market ranges for this week from Trevor Smith.
Markets have been trending, breakout math for the coming week, except there is a twist. Currencies are trying to make a short-term low reversal, with the Japanese yen’s positive divergence presenting a stronger technical case for a rally. Conversely, S&P 500 futures’ negative divergence makes the rally less believable and a downside move more likely. I’ve been wrong about this for four consecutive weeks.
Joining trends and/or breakouts this week aligns a trading approach with projected math, if trend joining is your skillset. A trader could draw lines around Friday’s or this week’s highs/lows in crude oil, the euro, or gold and join price movements beyond the lines.
Last week, five of 10 projected weekly ranges printed as of late Thu. night, although many range projections were extremely close to actual price range extremes. The euro short trade was a great winning trade beyond my target price/time duration.
This Week’s Predicted Ranges
E-mini S&P 500
High Range: 3162-3152; Low Range 3132-3122 (3060 outlier)
Buy weekly or monthly expiration 3145/3140 put spread if accepting 3138, next week’s weekly pivot, as fair value underneath current price.
High Range 9200-9170; Low Range 9116-9090
Buy 9150/9125 weekly expiration put spread if accepting next week’s pivot above is more fair value; price on multi timeframe moving average cluster support; four-hour chart hammer low
High Range 1.107-1.105; Low Range 1.101-1.099
No official trade. Sell weekly expiration put spread up to 1.1025 weekly pivot/range midpoint one if reversal signals emerge as strong as present in Yen
High Range $1480-$1474; Low Range $1457-$1452
No official trade because bullish weekly chart contradicts bearish monthly chart. $1465/70 strikes to sell either a call spread (bearish trade) or sell short a put spread (bullish trade); as both could win.
High Range $5948-$5830; Low Range $5695-$5585
Sell $58/5850 weekly expiration call spread, as range midpoint is $5750 below price; short-term bearishness sets stage for monthly doji breakout higher into $60s-Jan/Feb short put spread trade idea
(Note: This article is published mid-day on Fridays and focuses on weekly options expiring the following Friday but may include monthly options or 2-week calendar/diagonal option spreads at times. I consider my week’s range accuracy from Fri. a.m. publishing until next Fri. a.m. as Trevor’s week for purposes of being aligned with potential weekly option trades placed Fri-Wed.)
E-mini S&P 500
High Range: 3136-3119; Low Range 3092-3077 (possible outlier event= 3058, if not Friday)
High Range 9254-9235; Low Range 9190-9180
High Range 1.112-1.109; Low Range 1.105-1.103
High Range $1482-$1475; Low Range $1459-$1450
High Range $6112-$5991; Low Range $5655-$5574
