Last week was once again a text-book trading session especially for US indices, particularly the SPX500, Dow Jones and Nasdaq. In addition to indices, commodities such as Gold and Crude Oil played out according to the expected plan. In this week's post, we will update only their short-term charts.

What do we expect from the markets this week?
E-Mini S&P500 Futures Chart - Apr 19
For those of you that love old-fashioned technical analysis then enjoy the following 240 minute chart. Comments are not needed considering the patterns are developing close to text-book as of now. The only complication may arise if we see SPX thrust strongly over 2930 upper-resistance and trade above this level for a few hours. Unless that scenario happens, we will short 2930 test.
Crude Oil Daily Chart - April 19
Looking to start the accumulation phase in Crude around $15-$12 mark in anticipation of a temporary bottom. In order to review our long-term perspective in this market then read this piece.
Gold spot Daily Chart - April 19
The pattern is Gold is not that easy to perfectly label in higher timeframe, however the lower-timeframe charts helps us track the sub-wave structure of each move combined with Fib. retracement areas.
Gold spot 4H Chart - April 19
For this coming week, we will be looking to play Gold scalps on the short side targeting a deeper pullback towards Fib zone 1600-1570. Therefore, we will look to short Monday's bounce (if we get one) around 1700-10 with risk above 1720.
