Wednesdays market summary and a U.S. response. Wait for it, wait for it.

It's no surprise that yesterday's news that the U.S. was going to have a military response to Syria spooked the markets and sent the indices to their biggest loss in some time. Today, it looks like the markets are digested what they went through yesterday.

October crude oil closed higher on Wednesday as it extends this summer's rally. Profit taking tempered early session gains and the low range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening when Thursday's night session begins. Stochastics and the RSI are bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are possible near term. If October extends this summer's rally, weekly resistance crossing at 114.83 is the next upside target. Closes below the 20 day moving average crossing at 106.04 would confirm that a short-term top has been posted. First resistance is today's high crossing at 112.24. Second resistance is weekly resistance crossing at 114.83. First support is the 20 day moving average crossing at 106.04. Second support is the reaction low crossing at 103.50.

October Henry natural gas closed higher on Wednesday as it extended this month's rally. The high range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Thursday. Stochastics and the RSI are overbought but remain neutral to bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are possible near term. If October extends this month's rally, the 38% retracement level of the May-August decline crossing at 3.680 is the next upside target. Closes below the 20 day moving average crossing at 3.421 would confirm that a short term top has been posted. First resistance is today's high crossing at 3.628. Second resistance is the 38% retracement level of the May-August decline crossing at 3.680. First support is the 20-day moving average crossing at 3.421. Second support is August's low crossing at 3.154.

October gold closed lower due to profit taking on Wednesday as it consolidated some of the rally off June's low. The low range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening when Thursday's night session begins trading. Stochastics and the RSI are overbought but remain neutral to bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are possible near term. If October extends the aforementioned rally, May's high crossing at 1489.00 is the next upside target. Closes below the 20 day moving average crossing at 1346.80 would confirm that a short term top has been posted. First resistance is today's high crossing at 1432.90. Second resistance is May's high crossing at 1489.00. First support is the 10 day moving average crossing at 1383.50. Second resistance is the 20 day moving average crossing at 1346.80.

The September Dollar closed higher on Wednesday. The high range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening when Thursday's night session begins trading. Stochastics and the RSI are neutral to bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are possible near term. Closes above the reaction high crossing at 81.99 are needed to confirm that a short term low has been posted. If September renews the decline off July's high, June's low crossing at 80.61 is the next downside target. First resistance is the reaction high crossing at 81.99. Second resistance is August's high crossing at 82.61. First support is last Tuesday's low crossing at 80.77. Second support is June's low crossing at 80.61.

And last but not least.....September coffee closed higher on Wednesday as it consolidated some of this summer's decline. The high range close set the stage for a steady to higher opening on Thursday. Stochastics and the RSI are oversold but remain neutral to bearish signaling that sideways to lower prices are possible near term. If September renews this month's decline, monthly support crossing at 10.21 is the next downside target. Closes above the 20 day moving average crossing at 118.11 would confirm that a low has been posted.
