Michael's Trading Room Summary

MAR 26, 2024 AM

News - Baltimore's Key Bridge collapse will affect cars and coal (as a starting point). Shipping & shipping insurance & any company that uses that post of call for staging their products.

Alex Interview Wednesday after the close.

MAG7 - doji yesterday; this morning attempting to break out of yesterdays range (upwards) but lacking in the follow-through so far.

Weighted Dollar / Yields Ratio - 280 / 260 channel; still chopping about.

IWF:IWD - strong gap up this morning; yesterday was a small day tangled up within the daily MA's but this morning we have gapped up above last weeks range.


T2100 - still bullish weekly. Still moving higher.

T2104 - Still firmly in weekly trend & still have buying.

T2123 - still looking for this to break down (not showing yet). Coming into the NOV 2021 high...

T2126 - bullish but petering out.

WTI Crude - attempting to push above 82.00 daily again. Above 83 would be drama. Has not pushed higher.

GOLD (futures) - 2200 still daily resistance; bullish still this morning. Channel 2140 to 2200 ... anything above 2009 is bullish & anything above 2200 is very bullish.

Nat Gas -nothing here.

Bit Coin - still holding above 70k; little pop but still not a signal for long play. Peter'ed out & slightly red.


Dollar (DXY) - weak;

USDJPY - doji close yesterday & so far this morning very tight doji again; careful. This is getting tight at that 151.50 area daily.

BOJ (10Y) - holding under 0.75% & chopping sideways.

USDCHF - starting to move higher.

EURJPY - back to weekly resistance. Still very bullish.


TLT - Gapped lower monday and closed at 93.50 daily. So far this morning - we have not really moved. Don't look good. Big picture we could work back into 100.00$

TNX - Gapped up Monday and closed near the highs of the session; overnight we gapped back down to yesterdays open & have run back up to yesterdays close. Strong chance this pushes back up into 4.3% and puts pressure on small caps.

ZN (10Y) - still weak; gap closed; holding under 111.

ZT (2Y) - Gap still not closed; still weak.

10/2 spread - focus is still on which direction the fed takes & the targets leave us with 0.60% or 0.00% --


BXM - have not seen any weakness yet. Still very tight. The markets have not decided to sell.

SPX - 5300 called out yesterday. 5340 PT has been talked about all year. This week could be a surprise move into 5260 daily. 5249 is next PT higher.

SPY - closed gapped down doji yesterday; opened gapped up and outside of yesterdays range but so far today have just stayed here sideways. Still holding weekly highs.

IWM - up 0.60% this morning. Longs need time.

QQQ - nothing exciting yet. Makes sense to get some puts short term but still bullish long term.

VIX - will squeeze and cause a big move eventually. Watch the 50-week (or the bollinger top) for a breakout; above 15.00 weekly should be drama.

SVXY - gapped up this morning - but not really pushing more from there.


ARM 145 tagging, next is 150 must stay above 143

DKNG headed to 51, 52.2

MDLZ may 70$ puts low iv play

SPX needs above 5225 for 5250

SQ needs above 85.52 for 89.9

TSLA can get above 182 then bullish to 194.50

VKTX 77 tagged, 84 next above can see 88.75,100

NVDA - still bullish flows. 1,000$ strike calls continue to come in.

NTGR - looks good. Breakout weekly above 15.50. Holding well above 55-day MA. The 200-day is just flattening out so it is going to take time. Stay above 14.90 weekly.
