Bias: I feel the major risk is lower now but could be choppy
Gains were seen as expected which exceeded 133.24 but only to stall at 133.59. I feel the major direction is now lower. Thus only while the 132.58 pivot support area holds and generates a push back above 133.10 followed by a breach of the 133.59 high would I begin to look for a stronger picture than would maintain the bullish move for 133.97 and probably the 134.55 major corrective high. Above there note resistance at 135.06 and then 135.66-73.
4th January: We've seen the expected gains and I suspect this is a high within a larger consolidation pattern. Thus, only back above 133.59 and 134.55 would maintain the uptrend for 135.06, 135.66-73 at least. Further resistance is then seen at 136.88 & 137.99.
While momentum hasn't shown clearly defined bearish divergences at the 133.59 high I feel they are probably correct and thus I feel the larger risk is bearish. The only problem is that the anticipated decline could be quite erratic and choppy. A break below this morning's low at the 132.58 pivot support area should extend losses through 132.20 and 131.80 and into the 130.92-31 support area. Take care here as this could hold in an alternative bullish structure. Breach would maintain losses.
4th January: Having seen the upside targets I feel we are due a potentially choppy decline down below 128.80 but no further than 128.10.
