Mid-day update: Gold, Treasuries & crude

A daily summary of high-profile members of several complexes.

Gold Feb Contract (GC, ETF: (GLD))
Tuesday's intraday probe above the rally's $1,283.50 per ounce target was extended overnight to also test $1,292.00 into Wednesday afternoon, next targeting $1,298.00, but meanwhile vulnerable to a correction testing $1,280.50.

Silver Mar Contract (SI, ETF: (SLV))
Extending higher after Tuesday's close fulfilled the rally's 16.65 target and rallied Wednesday morning to attack 16.80. The next higher objective in-play is 16.90, so long as 16.65 now holds pullbacks.

30-year Treasury Mar Contract (US, ETF: (TLT))
Closing Tuesday at the 151-16 buy signal wasn't decisive. But that didn't prevent Wednesday's open from gapping up to Tuesday's 151-26 high and surging through the morning to probe the 152-22 target up to 153-00. The recovery's momentum remains intact so long as pullbacks now hold 152-22 as support.

Eurodollar Mar Contract (EC, ETF: (FXE, UUP))
It was already just a formality to actually trigger the 1.1965 buy signal since the 1.1930 sell signal had failed multiple times. Wednesday's gap up to 1.1965 extended higher through the morning .

Crude Oil Feb Contract (CL, ETF: (USO, USL) (UWTI-long, DWTI-short))
Almost literally exploding higher Tuesday above the $58.65 per barrel inflection point could have been confirmed by a second consecutive higher close Wednesday, but was not. That doesn't prevent extending higher anyway to the next higher objective at 61.10, so long as pullbacks now hold 58.65. Regardless, EIA is being greeted from a position of strength

Natural Gas Jan Contract (NG, ETF: (UNG, UNL))
Tuesday's rejection of Monday night's gap up above 2.71 had dipped to fill the gap back down to Friday's 2.66 close. Wednesday's gap up spent the day fluctuating flat-to-higher around 2.71, and a second consecutive higher close Thursday would confirm a recovery underway. EIA is not being greeted from a position of weakness.
