Market still moving higher even though we are distributing under the surface
Small Caps with a lot of momentum going into this morning
Breadth still strong under the surface
Vix below 14.49 is still supportive of a bullish market , heading down to 13.54
SVXY not falling apart
SQ pushing above 83 into our 88.8 target, next is 93 decent lotto into earnings
AMD pushed below 197 into 193 PT, next is 185 and 183.8 after some digestion
TSLA heading towards Sam’s 167 pt below 170 next
BIDU heading up to 114 above 110

BABA approaching 77.8 next 80,83
FCX pushing above 41.52 into 43,45

XLE,VLO,PBF still strong for higher
JD above 28 next is 30

Hopefully you heard my conviction for AMD to 193 from OPEN/PRE - as it was still my set up from Monday. It tagged. I still see a break to 183.83 - so still bullish below 203.60
Hopefully you heard how bullish I was past few days for GOOGL into 140. There now.
FCX 41.53 trigger with 43 PT. Tagged.
Hopefully you caught FCX - Archna's gap up and chase play sized up premarket >GPS continued as did RNA and CPNG.
Swing longs in CELH + SLV both breaking higher.
BYND looks ready for round 2!!
Best oversold value bounce plays: MMM + ADM

Michael's Trading Room Summary

MAR 13, 2024 AM

Tonight Sam & Geoff will have a session at 4pm.

Spot Gamma Quote: Currently we see skews flattening/shifting which is a signal that call demand has declined, and we also see an increase in IV. Taken together its a signal of short term topping. The reality is that the leading chip stocks are broadly down week-over-week (SMH -3% this week), and we do not anticipate another major leg higher this week.

CTA's are "fully loaded" - shouldn't see selling there without a macro trigger. Seems the market is pushing out cuts w/ a possible dot plot of 2 which may make risk assets come off.

MAG7 - at the highs of the weekly / daily chart but chopping about there.

Weighted Dollar / Yields Ratio - above 265 as support held.

IWF:IWD - Sam said "bounce into resistance" was likely yesterday - yup.

SMH:SPY Monthly Chart - Still looking for an answer of FBFF or if we keep going.


T2100 - still pushing high.

T2104 - "net buying" still in play in the small caps space.

T2123 - extremely strong

T2126 - still green.

WTI Crude - PT given yesterday was 75.59 short pt. Above the 79.11 pivot this morning. EIA at 10:30am today (every Wednesday).

GOLD (futures) - pulled back from 2200 soundly - still holding the pullback.

Nat Gas - back below 1.80 and still fading

Bit Coin - broke above 73k but was unable to keep it this morning. Looks like it wants to roll over into 65k


Dollar (DXY) - Still inside yesterdays levels; back below 103 but chopping about.

USDJPY - trying to break outside of yesterdays levels; testing 148 in the premarket. Expecting to test 148.40 area.


ZN (10Y) - Large outside bar Friday closed green. This morning we are doji on the daily but under the 112' daily resistance.

ZT (2Y) - Large outside bar Friday closed green. Down this morning but still well within Friday's range.

10/2 yield curve - still looking for 0.60%.


SPX - 5200 calls cont to come in. 5189 is the level to get / stay above. They want 5200.

IWM - potential to pop.

IWC - sharp bounce.

QQQ - CVI indicator starting to roll-over. Could see more pullback on the NASDAQ. Tagged the 21-day MA 2 days in a row. Weekly implies digestion. Could see a fade into 440 but not expecting drama.

VIX - can't see support until 13.54 hourly.

SVXY - Just barely red. Needs to get inside 108.85. If it can drop into that & stay there ... then ok. Cant really see shorts unless this does get below that level.


AMD below 197 next is 195,193 and eventually 183.83

BABA approaching 77.8 next 80,83

CELH above 93.6 4next is 95,97

BIDU - Get above 110 weekly for a cont long . Let's see what happens at 114

FCX stays above 41.52 into 43,45

KWEB - fighting the 50-week; has rejected there many times. Barely above the 200-day now;

META filled gap, if it wants to be weak it will stay below 497 into 490,480 stop: 503

NVDA sogging but not falling apart, needs below 887 to pivot bearish

QQQ below 440.95 next is 439.25

ROKU get above 66 it can fly into 70,75

SQ lotto into earnings, above 83 into 88.64, 93.

TSLA heading towards Sam’s 167 PT

ADM - has to get back above 57.76 weekly.

ABBV - perfect. Above weekly 176 - now that is support.

GPS - hit 33 PT.

GLD - still bullish

HPQ - this is an "AI play" - with old tech "new again." 31 strike calls coming in. Looking to get above 31 weekly.
