In today’s video we analyse the S&P E-mini futures chart, take a look at UnitedHealth Group (UNH) and revise our analysis on Edward Lifesciences (EW) after its latest break higher. As for yesterday’s video, Target (TGT) closed below its 50-day eMA for a second session to a 32-bar low, our near-term bias remain bullish beneath 260 but further out we may reconsider bullish setups above the 230 area. Copper hit our target zone around 3.95 – 4.00, a break beneath .395 assumes bearish continuation although take note of yesterday’s lower wick at support as it shows bearish momentum is beginning to wane.
