Economic Calendar & Watch List 12/10/2015


Morning Notes

US futures are slightly higher this morning on continued chatter about the economy being strong enough to handle a interest rate hike at the Fed meeting next week. European stocks are trading lower led by a slide in energy producers. Asian stocks closed mostly lower.



The SPY traded sharply lower after rejecting the 200 day moving average which provided great volatility and trading. Support will lie at the low of yesterday’s range at $204.18 which then opens up to $202.18. Resistance will lie at the 200 day moving average at $206.52, followed by the high of yesterday’s range at $208.68.

**Others On Watch**

CIEN – 1Q Rev. View Misses Lowest Est. Nice tradeable pockets. Will watch price action and volume for direction.

MW – May Miss Lower End of Yr Forecast; Downgraded at Stifel. Need to see strong selling pressure to penetrate the underlying support in order to get into the pocket below 13.8.

FSLR – Sees 2016 Sales $3.9B to $4.1B, Est. $3.94B; Downgraded at Needham. Levels for a daytrade are not ideal as it is a bit congested. Will need to see this start to sell on some volume in order for the price to enter the pocket below $52. A break and hold below 53 (200 moving average on daily) will begin to look interesting.
