Futures surge on proposed European debt plan

Posted by Mark Pszeniczny on Sep 27, 2011 3:26:00 PM

You know the Market is searching for direction when values and sentiment shift on an unofficial report of the European debt plan.  The plan is focused on three keys tenets.  First, Greece is going to be allowed to default on 50% of their debts (must be nice, I wish i could default on 50% of my mortgage.)  Second, the size of the European debt relief fund will expand dramatically and Third, the plan will re-capitalize the European Central bank.  Based on the jump in the Dow and in Commodities, the plan is being greeted with open arms.  Coupled with the forecast of draws in inventories again this week, values started up strong and did not look back all day. Technically speaking, we have commented frequently of the 2.80 support level of HEAT. For the fourth time in a year, we have hit the 2.80 level and yet again appear to be poised to bounce off it.  At the close, Crude added $4.21 to $84.45, RBOB screamed higher by .1261 to $2.6955 and HEAT jumped .0851 to $2.8766.  Assuming we ave confirmed another short term bottom, may not be a bad time to look at layering in some sort term fixed pricing.
