Morning Notes

US Futures are relatively flat this morning along with European stocks as global markets are quiet as markets in Germany, Korea, and China are closed for a holiday. The remainder of Asian stocks closed higher after European banking concerns subsided along with Japan’s ISM number coming in higher than expected.




The SPY tested the heavy resistance near $217 to then close well off the highs in Friday’s session. Support will lie at the low of Friday’s range, followed by the near term ascending support at $214.60, then $214.04, $213.62, $213.44, and $213.38. Resistance will lie at a near term macro pivot at $216.80, followed by the 50 day moving average at $216.85, then the high of Friday’s range at $217.12.
