Economic Calendar & Watch List


Morning Notes

US Futures and European shares are slightly lower this morning led by weakness in crude prices after an unexpected increase in stockpiles. Earnings season has started and a weak report from JPM is also weighing on indexes. European losses were limited with a strong industrial production growth in the Eurozone. Asian stocks closed mostly higher after the Nikkei reached its highest level in 20 years.



The SPY traded in a constricted range during Wednesday’s session posting another record close. Support will lie at the low of yesterday’s range at $254.32, followed by $253.98, $253.65, $253.20, $252.56, $252.23, the 20EMA at $251.65, then $251.30, the former ascending resistance at $251, and the recent pivot $250.15. Resistance will lie at the record highs of $255.05.
