We remain overall Bullish in Bias in this bull market, but there is no reason not to be prudent after such a fantastic start to the year and carry from the fourth quarter, states Bill Baruch of BlueLineFutures.com.

E-mini S&P (March) / E-mini NQ (March)

S&P, yesterday’s close: Settled at 4898.00, up 3.00

NQ, yesterday’s close: Settled at 17,621.00, up 89.75

Was yesterday the beginning of a blow-off top? While we have said a rotation from Tech to Healthcare, Financials, and Industrials will take place at some point, it is our belief it cannot until a blow-off top within the leading asset class. Furthermore, we want to be clear: a rotation does not need to last more than a month or two. Looking ahead to a massive week next week between earnings, the Fed, and Nonfarm Payrolls, we believe it is time to keep trades short and tight in risk.

Crude Oil (March)

Yesterday’s close: Settled at 75.09, up 0.72

Crude Oil futures have now decisively breached the .382 retracement back to the September high at 75.31, and this encourages us to hold a more Bullish Bias while trading out above major three-star support aligning with yesterday’s settlement at 74.83-75.15. However, we cannot ignore the market trading into a thick area of resistance aligning with the high volume reversal on November 30th, creating significant headwinds.

Bias: Bullish/Neutral

Resistance: 76.31-76.71, 77.48-77.98, 79.57-79.65

Pivot: 75.71-75.83

Support: 75.31-75.46, 74.83-75.09, 74.49-74.63, 73.94, 73.40, 72.99-73.28, 72.10-72.27, 71.25-71.52

Gold (February) / Silver (March)

Gold, yesterday’s close: Settled 2016.0, down 9.8

Silver, yesterday’s close: Settled at 22.889, up 0.427

Gold and Silver have played an exhausting game of ‘hot potato’ where one takes a bludgeoning while the other looks on. Given December's volatility, we look to today’s February option expiration, which took on significant volume, as a moment that could help normalize this trade. Furthermore, whereas we have warned that melt-ups on prior options and futures expiration as creating near-term tops due to the roll premium, this expiration may be the opposite, with liquidation front-running the calendar. We remain cautiously Bullish from a fundamental perspective, although the technical landscape is much less desirable.
