At the time of writing, the Crude instrument is changing hands at 47.34 in the out of hours session. This means that prices are steadying near potential support from both the long and short-term Moving Averages. In the event that the correction from the early-June overbought high continues, next chart support is at the May low at 44.
Gold was the subject of yesterday's Chart of the Day section, as the price was breaking up to a new contract high. Intraday resistance arrived at that level, 1318.9, leading to a failed break over the May high at 1308 and January 2015 peak at 1308.2. The yellow is currently trading at 1287.4 in the pre-session, adding to fears for a 'bull trap' reaction; especially as the RSI is near overbought levels.
One notes that the Spot Silver contract has plotted a 'Peak' Key Day Reversal from 17.865. The bearish feature is drawn close to the April barrier at 18.0162. A leap past that resistance would be required to remove risk of a further retracement of the prior rally from the 200-day Moving Average near 16.
In the Industrial Metals sector, the Zinc instrument has produced a bearish P&F Breakout signal on the move through 2015 on the automated scanner. This Candlestick chart shows the price correcting from an overbought position, towards potential support starting near the 50-day MA, around 1900.
In the Softs sector, the Cocoa contract was priced at 3125 in pre-hours trading a short time ago. Hence, much of yesterday's sharp pullback has been clawed back, after support was encountered around the 3000 area. Bulls will aim for the April/May ceiling at 3240, if they can manage to pass the recent high at 3174 that is.
In Meats, the Feeder Cattle issue fell to a new contract low at 136.9 during Thursday's session. A bounce did occur from that level, taking the price back over the April floor (138.1). While this could augur potential for an additional 'bear trap' recovery, a break over the resistance near the 50 and 200-day MAs would be needed to reinstate the base theory.
