Rithika's Chase Summary

Market had a pump and dump on Powell, not waiting apple earnings for further decision
USDJPY forming a bearish engulfing on the weekly, putting a strong bid in yen.
Long FXY as way to play until USDJPY tags 152 where it likely digests/bounces.
The advantage of falling USDJPY is actually potentially bullish stocks if it results in pushing back down our 10Y yield.
This is one way the BOJ/MOF intervention will help us get to that QQQ/SPX gap fill targets above: 445/5200
not a lot of energy in the market this morning
QQQ bullish only above 425.70, bearish below 423, chop inbetween
SPX bearish below 5019, bullish above 5080
DXY very choppy back under 106current channel from 105.5 to 106
CVNA sam still sees 135 in time, her 120 target about to hit
BABA stayed about 76 now heading to first target at 79.18 then 81
BIDU 110 target about to tag next 112
LLY breaks 767 we have lower levels at 750,742
JD 31 tagged, likely digests here first then 33
AMZN breaks above 183 we can go back to test 185,188, below 181 we have 177,174
TSLA sitting on the 55 day below 177 we push down to 173,168
QCOM needs to hold over 176.75 to push 183,188
DASH pushing down to 110,106
SBUX pushing to 69.69
PDD above 134 pushing 138
