Important developments in the weekly key reversal levels:

* The picture continues to weaken for stocks. The FTSE 100 has fallen below its weekly key reversal level and for the Nasdaq we see weekly MoM turn down.

* No significant changes for bonds, gold, oil and EURUSD.

Daily key reversal levels as of today:

Daily Current Mode Key (D) MoM (D) Days % Ch.
Nasdaq 4,000.98 3,981.06 2.17 44 6.20
S&P 500 1,775.31 1,790.47 -1.06 1 -0.15

Important developments in the daily key reversal levels:

* The S&P 500 and the DAX have joined the FTSE 100 by going into declining mode (red). The Nasdaq and the Nikkei are coming close to doing so as well. It’s too early to buy as daily MoM remains down for all covered stock indexes.

* Bonds (TLT) have seen daily MoM turn back upwards, so have survived another test of the 102 bottom level, at least for now.

* Gold continues to build a base just above 1200. MoM is to the upside, so if gold can close above its daily key reversal at 1268.39 then a further rally becomes likely.

* For oil we see daily MoM turn down, probably just a consolidation after its recent gains.

Our current key target zones (we use a +/-1% zone around these targets):

Key Targets Top1 Top2 Bottom1 Bottom2
Nasdaq 4200 3530 3210
S&P 500 1820 1870 1576 1522
Nikkei 15850 17220 12710 10450
FTSE 100 6800 7150 6205 6110
DAX 9480 9800 7870 7210
Bonds (TLT) 111.80 128.50 102 96.25
Gold (spot) 1448 1540 1215 1153
EURUSD 1.3950 1.42 1.2870 1.2350
Crude Oil(CL) 105 * 113 * 89.50 86.00

(* = new target )
(for more details about these key targets, see: https://lunatictrader.wordpress.com/2013/08/20/key-target-levels/ )

Important developments last week:

* A new Top1 target for Crude Oil at 105, with a refined Top2 target at 113.

* Bonds (TLT) continues to sit just above its Bottom1 target at 102. That level may not hold much longer and I would start looking for the Bottom2 target at 96.50

* EURUSD is closing in on its Top1 target
