Good Morning Traders,


Morning Notes

US Futures are off slightly this morning ahead of the revised U.S. Q4 GDP and the final Consumer Sentiment report that may hint further to the timing of a Fed interest rate increase. European Markets are up on a positive outlook that the ECB’s QE program will meet its goals after ECB President Draghi stated the ECB will not have any problems meeting its debt targets.



The $SPY held the $204 support level yesterday closing at $205.27. The $204 zone will now act as pivot support with $202 below that then followed by the 200 Daily Moving Average of $201.10. Resistance to the upside will be the high of yesterday’s range at $206.37.
