Today's Trackdown: Wednesday - June 12, 2019

  • Brief Recap and Updates on the Markets
  • SPY Charts and some Technical Analysis

In Tuesday's action:

The stock market finished slightly lower on Tuesday, with the S&P 500 declining 1 point. The markets started higher early on but faded as the day went on as we are short-term overbought.

News to keep in mind Wednesday morning:

  • Futures trade vs fair value was slightly lower late last night... Dow -6, S&P -1, Nasdaq -9, Russell -2.
  • The biggest factors in the market right now are; Global Economy, China trade talks, Fed speak, and the US Treasury markets.
  • Keep an eye on the VIX - The CBOE Volatility Index is back down in the mid-teens.
  • CHINA TRADE WAR is still an ongoing concern.

Today's Economic Calendar:


Quick Notes:    $BYND

Shares of Beyond Meat (BYND 126.04, -42.06) were pummeled, losing 25.0% after the stock was downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JP Morgan with a price target of $121.

TIGER'S TAKE:  I look for this to drop much more, as it is greatly overvalued and over hyped.


THE CHARTS:

(NOTE: Charts are a good guide but when a tweet or news item can jerk the markets around, they mean a bit less.)

The markets were slightly lower on Tuesday, but well lower than the market opened up at. This leaves us with a nasty big red reversal candle on the charts. We still point out that 290 is strong resistance and we have gotten short-term overbought after the big bounce up move from 273 to 291 in just 6 days. 

Our strong support level is at 280 and our strong resistance level is at 290. So for now, a big 280-290 trading range.

The MACD is turning up. The Stochastics are high/overbought. The Money Flow is slightly positive.

The 50-day MA (287.00)(+.13) and the 200-day MA (275.61)(+.03)

On the 9-month chart below, the previous patterns are behind us. Shown now is the re-established support level at 280 and the resistance at 290.

  • Nasdaq Composite +17.9% YTD
  • S&P 500 +15.1% YTD
  • Russell 2000 +12.7% YTD
  • Dow Jones Industrial Average +11.7% YTD
