In the last couple of weeks the US30 index has been able to rally well back towards the key 24,000 level after falling to its lowest levels in 18 months below 21,500. December was several weeks the US30 index would rather forget as it fell very sharply down through any support at the 25,000 level and then also through the 24,000 level down to that 18 month low.

Market Recap: 26 - 30 November

 

 
On Tuesday last week we covered the EURUSD and the key level at the time at the time was the 1.13 level. After rallying strongly off this level earlier last week, it has since reversed and found solid support again, reinforcing how significant this level is presently. A few weeks ago the EURUSD did well to rally higher from its lowest levels in 16 months back up towards 1.15 before easing in the last couple of weeks. Even though it fell through the 1.13 level a few weeks ago, it was quickly pushed higher through strong buying which will provide some confidence that the 1.13 level will provide some support should the EURUSD continue to decline. Likewise the 1.15 level has become key of late providing stiff resistance and looming above ready to push prices lower.

US30 - Rallies Strongly Above Key 25,000 as Fed Changes Tune

 

 
The US30 index has enjoyed a healthy surge higher in the last week climbing back above the key 25,000 level. However in the couple of weeks leading up to the surge, the index fell strongly from another key level of 26,200 and whilst it found some support around 25,000 it finally broke through down to near four month lows. Now that the index has climbed back above 25,000 it is worth considering the significance of the 26,200 level again - it formed a classic doji candlestick at this level before reversing and falling just as strongly as it climbed. Just prior to the doji, the US30 index enjoyed a strong resurgence moving from multi-month lows back up to the key 26,200 level. After reaching a new all time high earlier last month the US30 index been reasonably volatile since and seems to have found a comfort zone between the two key levels.
