Air Bleeds from Hopium Clouds BY AL MARTIN (9-23-12) We saw the Dec. Long Bond contract pickup in line with our previous week's suggestion. We have been trading the contract on the long side since 144.16, where we originally recommended buying the contract. The contract had a good close at 147.00. We believe that 148.00 now in the offing in the coming weekâs trade. The Dec. Dollar contract â holding support at 78.80, as the Euro, which we have been short from 1.3150, continues to move lower. We would expect the Euro to break under 1.29 in the coming weekâs trade. The Nov. Oil contract â we are now shorting on moves above 93.50 and would continue to look at the 93.50 - 94.00 zone for fresh shorting opportunities Dec. Gold â one of the few contracts to break out late week, being turned back at the 1790 resistance level in Fridayâs trade. We were short sellers at 1790 on our standing orders, covering at 1775 late session. Although Gold has backed off, we would expect the Gold to re-assault the 1790 level in the coming weekâs trade.
