Good Morning Traders,


Morning Notes

US Futures and European Markets are slightly higher this morning after China reported a higher than expected manufacturing PMI.  US Markets were hit with a sell off yesterday led by tech stocks and predominantly Apple and its reported defect in the new watch. In addition, the personal income and spending report came in weaker than expected.


The $SPY broke through ascending support of $208 and closed back above at $208.46 in yesterday’s session. Support below the minor ascending channel of $208 will be at $207 and then $205. Resistance lies above at yesterday’s high of $210.35.
