Existing Home Sales came in at the lowest level since 2010. Gold and Silver are rallying, but stocks slide ahead of Nvidia earnings.
Good afternoon, traders. It’s Chris Chavez with Blue Line Futures and it’s your daily midday market minute. Existing home sales come in at the lowest level since 2010. Stock indices are lower, but precious metals are moving higher. Before we get to that, if you’re watching this video like it, subscribe if you’re on our website.

We would love for you to follow us. We would love for you to help us build our following. So we got some housing data here this morning. Existing home sales came in at the lowest level since 2010. You’re really seeing a nice pop in the precious metals complex. And really, I want to highlight that. You know, we did get jobless claims last Thursday and we’re going to get jobless claims tomorrow, Wednesday, because markets will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday.
Now, it seems the metals are really responding to not only jobs data, the labor market, but also housing data is obviously a very, you know, interest rate sensitive sector. And I think that if you’re seeing, you know, existing home sales really starting to come down, you’re seeing that that weakness there. It definitely supports, you know, that that the Fed is potentially done with this hiking cycle.
And I think that’s fueling a little bit of a safe haven bid, a little bit of a safe haven rally, you know, looking at the precious metals, but also just a risk on environment that, you know, you’re going to want to continue to pay attention to. So I think jobless claims tomorrow are going to be really important, especially because the last report did show a pretty big uptick, more than what was expected.
So we’re going to want to continue to pay attention to that. We do have FOMC meeting minutes today at 1 p.m. Central Standard Time. We’re also going to get NVIDIA earnings after the bell. And tomorrow we’re going to get Michigan data, consumer sentiment, inflation expectations. It’s going to be pretty important to keep an eye on before the holiday on Thursday.
Now, major levels that we’re going to want to keep an eye on when looking at these macro markets, you know, specifically the S&P stock indices, 4653, that’s major four star resistance. We’ve seen a nice rally here, This little V-shaped recovery. If you will, on the S&P. You know, to make that you know, to push it to new highs, we’re really going to want to clear that 46, 53 level, the Nasdaq, it’s going to be 16 151.
So, you know, if we can get above there, again, that’s also a major four star resistance that’s going to, you know, provide some more strength and conviction to push us to new highs on that December contract. Looking at the Nasdaq now, gold for star resistance is going to be 2009 and 2/10 to 2012 and 7/10. Again, you’re seeing a real nice pop here today.
We just about hit that that that first threshold in that resistance level. So you’re going to want to pay attention to that crude oil. You’re really going to want to see a break close above 8023. It’s not a significant four star level, but still three star to see a reversal off of these lows and then continue to potentially find our footing, make our way a little bit higher.
