Michael's Trading Room Summary

APR 22, 2024 AM

Sam posted in Market Thoughts (in Slack) over the weekend; please take some time to review that.

MAG7 - Large expansion bar; below 10, 20, 50. Hit 100-day MA. GS PRIME shows 3-weeks of "net buying." UBS downgraded the MAG7 over the weekend.

Weighted Dollar / Yields Ratio - still under 310; crossed under 300 Friday but popped back above it to close above it Friday.

IWF:IWD - Large expansion bar; below 10, 20, 50, 100. Below 1.88. Closed at lows Friday. 200-day MA next lower level. On Support... so COULD SEE A SOLID BOUNCE


T2100 - trying to bounce; not going well.

T2104 - Still no panic

T2123 - Rolling over; weak but that roll-over stopped.

T2126 - bouncing. Could see a decent bounce. It's trying but does not seem committed.

WTI CRUDE - Below 82$ daily. Testing 81.00$ this morning. Looks weak daily. Pushing Lower.

GOLD (futures) - Dumping w/ Silver. Spied a squeeze Friday & Sam said it looked like it would pop lower. Cheers if you took that. Quick Digestion ... silver too.

Bit Coin - Still holding above 62k. Nice bounce but still under the 50-day. Bouncing - & so are the proxies.


Dollar (DXY) - Sideways above 106;

USDJPY - No intervention yet; frustrating.


TLT - gapped lower; still within the 3-day range. Holding above 88.00 daily but that is not offering much

TNX - Not above 4.688%

ZN (10Y) - still digesting; no bounce.

ZT (2Y) - still digesting; no bounce.


SPX - Could bounce into 5131; 5004 is the level to get above; will see more buyers after that. Have to do it first & then we'll see. At the middle of the weekly bollinger band.

SPY - Soggy;

IWM - gapped up; inside day breakout failed but it's still holding the rally intraday; doji on the daily so far today.

BXM - great reversal weekly (lower) has taken this back into Weekly Kelts. Have a quite pause here so far this week.

QQQ - 413.58 daily / hourly PT tagged. 30-week MA lower level. Not a surprise to see a little bounce here. 10/21 weekly has not crossed yet. Could bounce into 423. Could see the underside of the daily TL but there is no energy. That bouce was from a hourly, daily & weekly support level.

VIX - Still no panic. Looks like it wants to break down but has not.

SVXY - 10-week resistance; has to get above that & thats a big ask.


SPOT below 271 next is 268.74 gapfill

QQQ 416.57 is the pivot , having an oversold bounce

PDD over 118 possible gapfill to 121

NFLX stay above 552 for a chase above

SMCI struggling to get above 742, below 707 we see 660.

MU above 109 into 111.48


ANF - 100-day MA is PT; It's going there.

AA - don't count this one out.

AMD - still working as a trend reversal; cont to hit every level lower. Breaking 141 weekly offers 50-week next PT lower (or break 144 for a move into the 200-day MA). Earnings 04.30.24. 10/21 weekly roll-over.

ARM - Still have 77.71 gap fill daily. 91.30 hourly turn.

AMZN - still in trend.

BIDU - Citron report turned this bullish. (off - they usually publish short reports). Like this for a chase long.

BABA - 68 weekly is next lower support; needs to hold. Breaking 68 offers 57 short. Looks good for a chase long.

CNX - careful. 23.68 weekly support. 21-day MA support.

CAH - still in distribution.

COST - breaking down

GLD - GOLD (futures) - Dumping w/ Silver. Spied a squeeze Friday & Sam said it looked like it would pop lower. Cheers if you took that. Looks like the 21-day MA may be the next lower target. Expecting a bounce; not looking for a bigger fail.

GOOGL - No Edge on earnings.

GE - bouncing on the 21-day MA.

INFA - dumping.

JNJ - solid distribution big picture; 100-month MA (low) - is a level to stay above (143). For a bounce - that is a great spot. Keep it above 148 hourly if you are trying to chase that minor bounce.

KWEB - China looks a little better; Looks decent today.

LLY - 672 PT short weekly. Broke the 55-day MA. 711.88 daily short PT.

META - No Edge on earnings. Still hanging in there. It's going to be an earnings move; one way or the other.

MSFT - No Edge on earnings. Sitting on 398 weekly support. 10/21 has not crossed under.

MNST - nice pattern for a reversal; better short under 52.50 weekly.

NVDA- Gaps lower WILL GET FILLED. Has move room lower (after a bounce).

NFLX - 552 is the level to get above for a chase bounce higher.

NVO - very strange. Little bitty selling... VKTX odd too.

PDD - holding the 50-week; don't short on the 200-day. Has to break under that first (& it is up-slopping so let that 200-day flatten out some too).

RIOT - oversold bounce;

SPOT - above the 55-day MA. Outside the Weekly Kelts high; has earnnigs on deck (tomorrow).

SLV - GOLD (futures) - Dumping w/ Silver. Spied a squeeze Friday & Sam said it looked like it would pop lower. Cheers if you took that. Looks like we could target the 21-day MA (lower). 24.50 weekly next lower PT. Likely see it supported at that 24.50 weekly.

TSLA - could bounce & then drop. No Edge on earnings. likely sells off into earnings. 146 weeky overshot; to be bullish we have to get back above that 146 level.

THC - 92.65 weekly acting as a minor support.

UNH - opening under the weekly TL.

VZ - earnings; TMUS & $T worth looking at.

WFC - still looks nice. (BAC looks tempting as well). Earnings are out of the way. These are "value plays" too.

WSM - really nice short setup; still outside the weekly kelts (high). (looks like SPOT).

XLK - tagged PT (gap fill); Under the 55-day but still above the 200-day MA.

XLU - looks better.

-- MAG 7 that Reports this week --
