Economic Calendar & Watch List 8/3/2015


Morning Notes

US futures are slightly lower to relatively unchanged this morning as crude slid to over a 4 month low on the increasing global supply, mainly due to the Iranian oil minister noting that they can increase production by nearly 500,000 barrels per day. European stocks are trading higher on better than expected earnings being reported out of large European companies. Asian stocks closed lower.



The SPY tested an overhead resistance point at $211.04, rejected and closed back below on Friday. However, the SPY did hold mid range support of $210.16, closing just above at $210.50. Support will remain at $210.16 and overhead resistance will be at $211.45, followed by $211.77, and then descending resistance at $212.60.
