Economic Calendar & Watch List 10/8/2015
US futures are slightly lower this morning as European stocks are trading lower affected by a poor German export data report that reflected the worst levels in over 6 years. This report again raises concerns on the status of the global economy and also has created speculation that the ECB may consider expanding its QE efforts in light of the current state. Asian stocks closed mostly lower.
The SPY moved higher and tested the 50 day moving average in yesterday’s session ending at 199.41. Support will lie at the low of yesterday’s range at $197.48, followed by $197, $196.33, and $195.03. Resistance will lie at the high of yesterday’s range and the 50 day moving average at $199.84 which then opens up to $202.89.
