Rithika's Chase Summary

Yesterday, Fed's pause with promises, still, of 3 rate cuts in 2024 (and 2025) cause USD to dump and gold/equities to rally hard.
This morning:
Swiss National Bank, China and Brazil just cut. Mexico next?
USD is bid as indices digest and gold is dumped.
2Y10Y Yield Curve is steepening. But for how long...Big Picture I am still a USD bear and Commodities bull - food, precious metals, industrial metals/miners. Big Picture I am still bullish indices - as posted in January:
SPX TO 5340
QQQ TO 472
IWM TO 220
But into Friday and EOM, I see some short-term volatility with VIX bouncing off 12.40, so a good time to take care!
Bounce in the dollar and the yields could cause this
Oil rejected the 83 level
Breadth still strong under the surface
Nothing bearish yet
Gold coming down on a strong dollar
Pot stocks likely make a higher low and get defended, mid tier tech also has to base and continue higher
JWN pushing 19.85 then 20.3 then 21
GES short interest really kicked in post earnings!
GPS really should digest 28.48ARM over 136.44 can see 140,150
AMZN potential long target 188.85 above 180
DKNG expected breakout above trigger 45.29 worked with 47.48/48.82 next
LU rec'd at 2.80 last week hit 4.80 on earnings.
NVO coming back down to 122
LLY below 764.24 we have 750,742
MU below 111.65 we have 107, intraday pivot 107 further selling
COIN above 270 can see 275,282 stop: 268
CPNG needs above 19.06 for 21.31
SQ over 83 into 89.9
PYPL above 66 into 68,71

Michael's Trading Room Summary

MAR 21, 2024 AM

MAG7 - gapped up this morning in the pre-market strongly. Closed at highs yesterday & into blue sky this morning.

Weighted Dollar / Yields Ratio - Back below 275; this is inverse the S&P so if it is weak and going lower that is good - like a tailwind

IWF:IWD - Gapped up this morning; closed higher 2-days in a row... maybe today becomes the third. Sitting at 1.93 premarket. Expecting a "petering out" of growth by EOW.


T2100 - very bullish.

T2104 - They are Net Buying. Likely see selling into Friday

T2123 - very bullish.

T2126 - Very bullish. Watching for a FBFF - but has been sideways many weeks ... so this breakout is very bullish.

WTI Crude - 83 daily resistance held; Getting tapped down below 82 - above 83 would be drama. Rolled back over. Possible H&S as weakness.

GOLD (futures) - broke above 2200 & has kept it so far. Anything above 2164.78is going to be very bullish.

Nat Gas - nothing

Bit Coin - rallied back above 65k to close at the highs yesterday; down slightly this morning but has rallied up from the globex lows.


Dollar (DXY) - large gap down - premarket below 103. "Dumped" yesterday. This is soooo bullish for the market's that it's bearish. Still in a chop phase. At some point this year we'll roll over & break under 100.00$.

USDJPY - holding above 151 daily after falling below yesterdays low & running back up again to yesterdays close.

EURJPY - Climbing solid.

USDMXN - Mexico is likely next with announcing a cut. USDMXN ... kinda on the ground. Not really great looking yet. (Maybe EWW would be a better chart).

USDCHF - it liked the Swiss National cut; moving higher clearly.

USDCNH - look at it fly. Swiss National Just started cutting.


TLT - gap up this morning r2g; trying to hold above 93. 92.40 is hourly short PT.

TNX - broke below yesterdays low earlier in the session but has rallied up from the mornings low and back inside yesterdays range near 4.25%. Bearish & that is supportive of equities.

ZN (10Y) - tagged that 114 resistance daily; it held as resistance so far.

ZT (2Y) -strong close yesterday - closed at highs of day. This morning has seen a fade back from that yesterdays high; after trying to breakout and run higher.


SPX - closed above 5200; closed at HOD in blue sky. Still Trend Long; still Swing Long; Breaking 5249 offers a gap fill to 5226 hourly. (Mikey warned in the Morning Briefing that a short today "just because" we ran far yesterday is a bad idea)

SPY - closed above 520; closed at HOD in blue sky. Likely Soften into Friday

IWM - this was Sam's bet back in Jan (doing better than expected was her bet). Still like it. Craig is short.

QQQ - 472 PT.

VIX could bounce into 13.38 before lower causing some shake and bake in the market


ARM over 136.44 can see 140,150

CPNG needs above 19.06 for 21.31

COIN above 270 can see 275,282 stop: 268

GPS pushing into 28.48

JWN pushing 19.85 then 20.3

LU manage risk post earnings

LLY below 764.24 we have 750,742

MU below 111.65 we have 107, intraday pivot 107 further selling

NVO coming back down to 122

PYPL above 66 into 68,71

SQ over 83 into 89.9
