$TSLA 186 is the pivot. TSLA above 190 back to 199,202.80

URANIUM, COPPER, SILVER & GOLD getting push-back.

AMZN - earnings tonight. If this beats & gets back above $188 then it's set for a bullish play higher. 215 & 230 options were seen coming in lately.

ASML - anything below 888 is going to fall.

AAPL - gapped higher this morning on hourly. 173.76 is the level to stay above in a chase today.

BTIO - making LH, LH, LH & dumping.

AMD - earnings tonight. Expected to beat.

CLX - does not look ready yet. Get above 150.00$.

CCJ - weak into 44.81 weekly & then 41.57 weekly (or the 200-day MA). Needs to break that 55-day for a cont short. Still has a lot of options buying.

DG - ewwwww. Still above the 200-day but it's down-slopping.

FLS - boring but awesome. Looks great.

GEHC - rejection at 87.83.

GOOGL - came back to the 3-day & is digesting.

GLD - short PT 206.05. It's headed there. (short term short set-up). Likely comes into support & then gets bid up again.

HSBC - thin options. Above 42.50 for what that's worth.

HOOD - breaking the 55-day MA would be a great short.

INTC - very over-sold. Under all the daily MA's (200, 55, 20, 10, 3). Monthly w/ a very large breakdown. 31.34 monthly pivot; could base here. Still no signal to suggest it is done falling.

KO - earnings. 62.90 weekly has to get taken out for a move higher. Looks good.

KEWB - hold above 27.50 weekly. Still good. Took a lot of work to get here. Expect a fade.

MARA - hugging the 200-day; ewwwww.

MCD - having some hardships; Still under the 200-day MA. Was defended.

MSTR - 1080 daily support & short PT. earnings beat was obvious. Cheers. B

MU - w/ AMD earnings on deck it's advised to approach w/ caution. 113.50 weekly support holding.

MMM - really great consolidation on weekly; 92.52 weekly resistance held well... but now in premarket we are hitting 100 & seeing some consolidation. MMM - Get above 101 for a play into 109 area. Looks good to above 96 to 100;

MSFT - 390 PT if we break 398.67. Key level of support.

NVDA - get above 887.78 for a run higher; otherwise if we reject there we have 830 short PT.

ON -bouncing off the 200-week; doing really well.

PYPL - earnings; did a great job getting above resistance. Still more bullish than bearish. If support holds then we could see 76.50 & 82 in time. The long still looks good. Needs to hold above 68 weekly. Like it above 69.20 daily. Looks like the better horse.

ROKU - 56.77 weekly support. Has an upgrade. 60.75 daily MA resistance. Breakout above 61.34 for a long play.

RITM - boring but working; 11.48 weekly resistance and current PT.

SBUX - earnings tonight.

SMCI - PT 927 daily.

STX - has some distribution. Under the 55-day MA.

SLV - likely hit the 55-day MA & then it's a great buy again. 23.90 current short PT.

TSLA - pulling back at a key area. Still under the down-slopping 200day MA. Back above the 55-day MA. 198 weekly was hit & we've calmed down.

WDC - Looks good weekly; broke out. Above the 200-day & 55-day. Options flows are bullish. Has a pretty trend. Peer is $STX. Get above 78 weekly.
