AUD/JPY longs worked if you were still holding them, hitting their target and only resistance on Tuesday at 8280/8300. Therefore a break above 8320 is a buy signal targeting 8365/75. A buying opportunity again at 8220/10. Stop below 8190. A break below 8190 is a sell signal targeting 8160/55, perhaps as far as 8100/8090.

EUR/JPY was moving straight through minor resistance at 130.60/70 to the next target of 130.95/99, with a test of trend line resistance at 131.20/30 now likely. Shorts need stops above 131.45. A break higher is a buy signal. Try to jump in and hold long in to the end of the week. The pair is a buying opportunity again at 130.10/129.90 with a stop below 129.80.

EUR/USD longs at the buying opportunity at 1.1400/1.1380 target strong resistance at 1.1455/65. This held quite well on the last test. Further gains are likely eventually towards 1.1500/10 and 1.1560/70. A buying opportunity at 1.1400/1.1380—stop below 1.1365. If this trade fails, I fear we will remain stuck in a sideways trend.

GBP/USD shorts at the 200 day moving average at 1.3735/40 worked in severely overbought conditions to test support at 1.3670/60. Further losses would have met strong support at 1.3620/00 with a good chance of a low for the day. Longs need stops below 1.3585. Next target and support was at 1.3535/25.

200 day moving average resistance is again at 1.3735/40. Shorts need stops above 1.3755 this week. A break higher is the next buy signal targeting 1.3780 and 1.3805/15. Expect some resistance at the October high at 1.3830/35.

E-mini S&P got close to a test of the neck line at 4590/80 on Friday but bounced from 4606. If tested this week, longs need stops below 4570. A break lower is a significant sell signal. Minor resistance at 4670/80 and again at 4695/4705. Further gains can retest last week's high of 4735/40. Next target is 4750/60. Above 4765 can retest the all time high at 4800/08.

NASDAQ is perhaps building a minor negative trend in January. Holding quite important resistance at 15700/750 was negative for Tuesday, initially targeting 15550/500. If we continue lower, look for 15350/320 before a retest of last week's low at 15170/150. Further losses test the 200 day moving average at 15000/14950.

First resistance at 15700/750—shorts need stops above 15800. A break higher targets more minor resistance at 16000/16100. A break above here is a buy signal and we could even retest the all time high.

I am waiting for a clear trend pattern to develop for the E-mini Dow Jones. For now, minor resistance at 35800/850 was tested as I write overnight, but if we continue higher, look for a test of minor resistance at 36000/36050. Further gains can target 36300/350.

Holding minor resistance at 35800/850 can target 35750/700 before a retest of this week's low at 35540/520. A break lower this week targets support at the 100 day moving average at 35350/330.
