Economic Calendar & Watch Lists


Morning Notes

US Futures are relatively flat this morning while European stocks are trading higher after the Bank of England (BOE) slashed the lending rate by to .25% and increased the Quantitative Easing measures (QE). Asian stocks closed mostly higher led by Japan’s NIkkei bouncing back from multi week lows.




The SPY traded on an inside day on low relative volume which made for slow, choppy markets in yesterday’s session. Support will lie at the low of yesterday’s range at $215.13, followed by the low of Tuesday at $214.57, then $214.35 and $213.43. Resistance will lie at the high of yesterday’s range at $216.25, followed closely by $216.83, the recent pivot at $217.30, and finally all time highs at $217.65.

August 4th Swing Watch List

$ENDP – With earnings coming up, news coming out and testing the 50EMA at the mouth of a big gap, this is a sweet long setup (credit to Mike here!) Long entry is over 18.63, stop 18.00. Aggressive target is 25!

$FOLD – A previous winner for us with earnings coming up, I like the potential over 6.81. Long entry over 6.81, add spot over 7.00. Target is 7.50-7.75.
