Major Market Ranges for Week of June 7: Downside Breakouts

Commodity Trading Advisor,

Next week’s market range forecast from Trevor Smith.

Trending breaks extending into midweek in both crude oil and the S&P 500 futures begin Friday, according to a market mathematics. Both are in bearish technical setups with strong buyer presence.

Stock indices and oil are printing higher highs, but some market internals continue with lower highs/lows for 10 days. Thus, the depth of a downward range extension could exceed 1 standard deviation.

Gold’s inside-range breakout setup is a directional mystery. Join it as it exceeds my ranges next week.

Last week’s trade ideas worked, albeit briefly as markets then turned into the opposite directions! Seven of 10 projected weekly ranges printed as of Thursday afternoon with other ranges extremely close, such as the S&P’s lowest trade being just 3 points over my projected lows.
