Economic Calendar & Watch List
US Futures and European markets are lower in early trading. Markets again traded sharply lower in yesterday’s session following a ramp in trade tensions between the US and China. Pres. Trump announced plans to levy another 10% tariff on $300b of Chinese goods starting Sept. 1st. with the potential to raise it to 25% if trade talks stall. Investors will also be watching the Jobs report today for insight into the strength of the economy. Asian markets settled the session lower.
The SPY was rebounding off the 20EMA in yesterday’s session then sharply sold off in the afternoon through the 20EMA and into gap entry on the tariff news. Support will first be found with gap fill at $293.55, the 100SMA at $289.50, $288.44, $281.20, and the 200SMA at $278.60. Resistance will be found at $297, followed by the 20EMA at $298.09, then $299.6, $301 and $302.23
