Morning Notes

US Futures are slightly higher this morning after yesterday’s weak retail sales report may delay the Fed’s decision in raising rates. European and Asian Markets are lower.


The $SPY tested $210.60 resistance and closed below at $210.02 in yesterday’s session. Upper range support is at $210 and $210.60 the first point of resistance. Lower range support is at $208, then $207. Above $210.60, we will watch for a retest of $212-$212.25 to break and hold for a move back up.
