APR 16, 2024 AM

Powell and Jefferson speak today; Powell will speak along side Bank of Canada Governor Tiff Macklem at 1:15 p.m. (eastern).

MAG7 - Below the 10 & 20-day MA. Big red day & closed at the lows. Still in a range (daily) but at the lower end of that range.

Weighted Dollar / Yields Ratio - Still holding strong above 300; 312 is the next level of interest.

IWF:IWD - big red bar yesterday; back to 1.92 daily. Closed at the lows of the session. Nearing the 10-MA daily.


T2100 - gross. weak. Already Broken

T2104 - Broke the 55-day MA. Hit the bollinger daily low. Hit the Dec High. Under the 10-week. Overbought & broken. Net sellilng has not really started yet.

T2123 - Dumped; evening star reversal; likely see the 10-week. Panic under the surface.

T2126 - nice rollover weekly. Closed below the 10-week. Could see a bounce here. Need the 10/21 to roll over.

WTI CRUDE - Channel from 85 to 87.50 daily. Chopping within that zone.

GOLD (futures) - Still holding under 2400; still bullish daily / weekly.

Nat Gas - chopping sideways

Bit Coin - down into 62k area with it's proxies also down. Rolled over.


Dollar (DXY) - made it near 106.50 before fading back. Still elevated; still above 106. Firm. Strong relative to other currencies. Above 105 is a big deal.

TLT - gapped down again this morning; now near 88.00 daily. 87.93 minor support; still a mess.

TNX - staying firm; cont to rise. Gapped but still inside of yesterday price. Above 4.688% likely brings panic with it.

ZN (10Y) - still no bounce; cont to peter out on every level. Careful.

ZT (2Y) - still no bounce; cont to peter out on every level. Careful.


SPX - broke the 55-day MA. Pushed outside the daily bollinger lows. When we get back above 5081 that will serve as support to fill the gap (5111).

SPY - Could bounce into 508 / 509 area. Why Not. Stay above 503.50 for a move into 510 as a "bounce off support." for shorts - there is 497 daily short PT 496 weekly PT

IWM - 193 weekly PT hit.

BXM - yesterday was solid green in the AM ... Sam said "I don't think so..." Big Change of character. Talking Red; market is not in a good mood.

QQQ - nice pullback. broke the 55-day MA. Pushed outside the daily bollinger lows. 430 daily pt hit; stabilize here is likely. 425 daily gap fill likely. Could bounce off the 430 into 435 area on "turn around Tuesday." 425.70 PT after the bounce.

VIX - up from the lows; holding above 18.44 hourly. the long callout worked; cheers. At resistance weekly; tagged & came back in. Still firm... bollinger opening up. Could see 21 area. Above 19.29 is market bearish. Below that we could have a broader market bounce.

China is not getting defended.

AA - earnings tomorrow;

ANF - still a great short but hit the 110 PT; likely bounce there before cont lower. Sam spotted some options movement... ANF - 95 puts getting sold and buying 120 / 140 call spread. ... this looks like an earnings play on 05.22.24

BAC - getting sold on the bounce.

CI - likely goes under pressure big time.

CVNA - below the 55-day MA. Still testing lower daily BB bands. Testing Weekly 69 support. Stay below 86 weekly. 56.80 likely lower PT.

COIN - at the PT; distribution. Rolled over well Friday & didn't stop. Hit the 55-day MA. Could bounce on that 212 weekly.

ENPH - looks like it wants to break support; does not look bullish.

FCX - selling off right at resistance.

FTNT - looks like it wants to roll over.

GS - nice rejection; tried to bounce but failed. Stay below 405 hourly w/ a PT 394 still.

GDX - miners looking tired. Coming back down as yields are rising.

HCC - looks good; weekly "scoop" pattern. About to hit it's head on weekly bollinger / kelts. Stay above 62.50 daily. Could see 72PT weekly or 70PT daily. Thin and options are poor.

JETS - broke the 55-day. moving into the 200-day MA. Could bounce on that 200-day MA. 17.32 PT in time.
