Bumping Upon a Ceiling

Daily Continuous

Still looking at the recent range trade, but I am noticing a trading behavior that seems to want to build on gains and test the “ceiling” of the recent range. This is the behavior of a market seeking to a price to force some short covering. Not saying that it is today with the storage report, but a behavior that should be respected.

Daily Continuation

Seems like the market likes to go into a spring period of boredom as I discussed in the Weekly Section. Similarities abound and if you need further evidence bring up a month chart of continuation prices. not much more to add than what was discussed in the Longer term area so not going to waste more of my time. I gather you folks understand my not writing the same stuff day after day is not laziness but there is no way to put lipstick on this pig. — Plod along sell, premium count cash.

Resistance is “Resistance”

Daily Continuous

That is why they call it resistance as prices trade between the 50 Day SMA and the 10 Week SMA but does not close above them both on a daily basis. The trader has to believe resistance breaks or holds — your guess is as good as mine.

Major Support:, $1.595, $1.52-$1.519, $1.432, $1.312

Rerun Continues

Daily Continuous

As discussed in yesterday’s Daily– the trade seems to be following a path similar to last month in early March as weather brought some short term support to prices. The same seems to be occurring this month. Wait for for prices to definitively break above resistance– by closing above the near term resistance between $1.85-$1.96 on a daily basis– before entering any serious length. In the meantime, I found the early March rally a good opportunity to sell some premium in the options market.

Major Support:, $1.595, $1.52-$1.519, $1.432, $1.312
Minor Support :
Major Resistance: $1.872, $1.94-$1.967, $2.00, $3.00, $3.16, $3.48, $3.536, 3.59

Similar to Last Month – Firm to Start

Daily Continuous

Seen this movie before — lets see if the plot thickens on this month as prices start the month off with strength only to fall back after the first week.

Major Support:, $1.595, $1.52-$1.519, $1.432, $1.312
Minor Support :
Major Resistance: $1.863, $1.94-$1.967, $2.00, $3.00, $3.16, $3.48, $3.536, 3.59

Options Today Contract Tomorrow

Daily Continuous

I have jumped ahead to the May contract for analytical purposes as the expiring April (Wednesday) provides no analytical support. Stick with the themes from the Long term Week section and unless something dramatic happens this will likely be the last daily until next week (Good Friday celebration on Friday). Should something, happens will post on Thursday.
