Economic Calendar & Watch Lists 7/26/2016


Morning Notes

US Futures are relatively flat and unchanged this morning as the markets await the results of the 2 day FOMC policy meeting which they will release tomorrow at 2 PM EST. European stocks are trading slightly lower and Asian stocks closed mostly higher except Japan after the Japanese Finance Minister said stimulus measures would be left up to the BOJ which sent Japanese stocks lower by over -1.4%.




The SPY initially traded lower early in yesterday’s session then later recouped close to half of the losses into the close on very light volume. Support will lie at the low of yesterday’s range at $215.97, followed closely by $215.75, $215.63, and $215.31. Resistance will lie at the high of yesterday’s range at $217.06, $217.30, and $217.37.
