Economic Calendar & Watch List
US Futures and European markets are higher in early trading. Markets are higher following reports from China that they will be reducing tariffs on $75b of US-made imports as part of the phase 1 trade agreement. Investors’ fears seemed to have waned on the risk of the economic impact of the coronavirus even with companies stating it may impact their bottom line. Asian stocks settled the session higher.
The SPY gapped higher to start yesterday’s session and held that gap closing the day just above the previous all-time highs. Support will first be found at $327, the 20EMA of $326.83, then $319.50, $315.48, then gap fill at $312.5, 100SMA at $311.43. Resistance will be found at all-time highs of $333.09.
