Stocks have been holding these upper 1990 to lower 2000, but looking like it may flip over from the last 2 sessions. (overnight high @ 2000.25 low @ 1980.75) With the oil market continuing to show strength and make new highs, I think that has been holding us up. If we see weakness in oil stocks are just waiting for that confirmation to sell off. Many people are still anticipating that the stock market is still due for a correction to the downside and that we could enter a bear market. If you are a bear you have to respect the strength we have seen the last couple weeks. With this quick of a move higher in oil and the stock, a correction would seem eminent but if the short sellers are weak and continue to keep getting stopped out we will just slowly grind higher. If you are a longer term swing trader and are comfortable having longer term risk on the table, we are trading at the 200 moving average on the daily chart. If you are a bear consider being short with stops above the 2075 and targets back at the 1900 level.
Looking at the Market Action Scanner, 3 of the 4 time frames (weekly,daily,240 min) are all still green and bullish above the top levels. We are kind of in a holding pattern waiting for new levels to appear longer term so we can look to see the ranges and attempt to play them. The Daily chart is showing yellow which is an indication of new levels being developed, which can also be viewed as a profit taking indicator. Meaning we could see new ranges below and above these current levels. Looking at the SP odometer, longer term we are still green bullish but the 60 min is beginning to close to that neutral level. We could be seeing a small correction coming in, however, longer term bulls are still in control so could be short lived and quick. On the 60 min levels bears need to break 1982 and close below that for a short term bearish signal to hold.
Looking at the 30 min chart, we have been breaking above the 1990 level, but not really able to get strong momentum, this could be due to pre-market trading. Also, crude as been moving between 38.40 -38.00 so we are kind of upticking and down ticking on that market movement. As you can see on navigator we had strong red in the overnight but are close back to the green level. Short term bears are in control on this 30 min chart and there is a lot of volume for us to get through up to 2000.00 prices. The levels have been in place for about 5 hours, so we will need to see if new levels appear on the open when more volume comes in. However, according to this snapshot you could play longs until we break 1984.00. That is when we could potentially see some short selling momentum take over. If this takes place we really need to get through the 1975 level and then the 1968 level. Those 2 levels especially the 1968 have held strong the previous times we’ve tested them. So potentially think of them as profit target zones. Below you will also see the economic calendar from dt Pro. We have no real market moving reports today

STOP ORDERS DO NOT NECESSARILY LIMIT YOUR LOSS TO THE STOP PRICE BECAUSE STOP ORDERS, IF THE PRICE IS HIT, BECOME MARKET ORDERS AND, DEPENDING ON MARKET CONDITIONS, THE ACTUAL FILL PRICE CAN BE DIFFERENT FROM THE STOP PRICE. IF A MARKET REACHED ITS DAILY PRICE FLUCTUATION LIMIT, A "LIMIT MOVE", IT MAY BE IMPOSSIBLE TO EXECUTE A STOP LOSS ORDER.
THE RISK OF LOSS IN TRADING COMMODITY FUTURES AND OPTIONS CONTRACTS CAN BE SUBSTANTIAL. THERE IS A HIGH DEGREE OF LEVERAGE IN FUTURES TRADING BECAUSE OF SMALL MARGIN REQUIREMENTS. THIS LEVERAGE CAN WORK AGAINST YOU AS WELL AS FOR YOU AND CAN LEAD TO LARGE LOSSES AS WELL AS LARGE GAINS.
