Michael's Trading Room Summary

APR 17, 2024 AM

MAG7 - Yesterday this gapped down to the bottom of the daily channel; Still above the 50-day & this morning we have gapped up towards the 20-day MA but are still inside yesterdays range.

Weighted Dollar / Yields Ratio - Hit 310 yesterday before fading back; Still around the 305 area. Expecting 350 before the current drama is done.

IWF:IWD - Above the daily MA's (50, 20, 10) but still sideways & chopping around the 1.93 area.


T2100 - bounced up this morning. Bullish short term.

T2104 - minor buying; but NOTHING really. Nothing here really ...

T2123 - sitting on the 10-week.

WTI CRUDE - Seems to be testing the lower end of the daily range; 84 getting tested this morning from above.

GOLD (futures) - Closed Doji yesterday; so far this morning premarket we are Doji again. Still holding the daily range under 2400.

Nat Gas - up premarket but still within the daily range under 2.00

Bit Coin - Down again premarket; looks to be testing 62K from above. 60k likely the next level lower; "half"ing happens this week.


Dollar (DXY) - Holding under 106.50; likely we would see markets react if this did get & stay above 106.50.

USDJPY - 154.75 tested; this continues to test the highs & press for more. Still a threat. 155 & 165 would not surprise Sam.

The BOJ-10Y likekly goes to 1.00% (if 0.80 to 1.00).


TLT - Closed yesterday higher then where it opened; this morning it's gapped completely outside of yesterdays range (higher). Still under 89 daily. BOND BULLS MUST DEFEND HERE...

TNX - Getting / staying above 4.688% likely brings panic with it. Rejected that high yesterday and is now closer to 4.62%. Need this to roll over for equities to move higher.

ZN (10Y) - came into 107-1/2 area before turning higher again; still chopping

ZT (2Y) - came into 101-1/2 area before turning higher again; still chopping


SPX - Has to get above 5080 for a cont push higher for a gap fill into 5192.50.

SPY - 503.50 was PT & we hit it; a little bounce now needs to get above the 3-day.

QQQ - 430 PT has been hit; expecting a bounce before moving lower into the next PT at 425

VIX - The expiry today "should" help the indexes bounce (SPY / QQQ). Weekend risk likely reappears after the options expiry Friday. Above 19.29 is market bearish. Below that we could have a broader market bounce.

SVXY - attempting a breakout of yesterdays range; no follow-through yet.


ASML below 927 can head down to 900, 889

DAL above 48 can attempt to test 50 sideways so far

NKE - 94.63 tagged, some digestion here first then has a gapfill to 98

QQQ 430.2 pivot fails we could see 425

TSLA - below 155 can see 150,146.41

XME approaching 63.5 then 66.6

QCOM below 167.4 next is 164


CAREFUL insurance & insurance brokers & things like that. (KIE - for example).

ARM - roll over. Testing the 55-day MA. Broke the 10-week & the 55-day MA. Extended intraday.

ASML - earnings roll-ver. Looks like a good short. $888.72 weekly support. Pushed under the 55-day MA. 889 PT. Stay below the 55-day

CPNG - tagged 22.50 & rejected;

CRUS - looks weak.

GBTC - on double support; if that does not support then it is really really weak

GS - still like this short; looking for rejection from oversold bounce.

HCC - very good looking chart. Weekly "scoop" pattern.

JBHT - Rejected 218 weekly; been chopping grinding lower since. Now under the 200 & 55 day MA's. May see a possible bounce around 165 weekly; long above 168 hourly

MSTR - still a great short.

MARA - looks to be the most oversold.

MRVL - going back to the 200-day MA would not surprise. Looks good.

NKE - great job. 94.63 tagged, some digestion here first then has a gapfill to 98

NVDA - break 860 for 823PT.

PLCE - looks like drama.

RMBS - looks soggy;

SMCI - 994.44 hourly resistance; 1077.80 daily is likely the place this rejects (thats PT)

TRV - stay above 208 hourly for bulls; 198.35 if we break below.

TSLA - 155 weekly support; 400-EMA weekly is the next lower PT (the 150 area weekly). Could overshoot into 136.68 weekly. Monthly support at 120 area. Still a mess. Break 153.88 for a move into daily gap fill 146.41 next PT. Oh YA; that is going to get tagged.

TMDX - an Alex play; looks supported above 90$ daily. 94 weekly. PT 100.00$.

UAL - stay above 44.20 if bullish. This is giving the others in this space a lift; still don't like it. DAL is the best looking of the airlines but it's still sideways.

USB - moving into 200-day MA from above.

WSM - still above the 55-day; rolling over. Looks like a nice short; stay below 292.40.

WPM - just wow; less violent miner.

XME - still see this as swing long.

Before you leave!
