Germany’s market is bouncing back today, rising by over 1% after their services PMI came in 51.7 versus estimates 51.3, and last month’s reading of 51.6.
But more importantly, the US markets are bouncing back this morning, with the S&P 500 futures pointing to a higher opening. The S&P 500 found meaningful support yesterday around 3,080 and based on the futures, the S&P 500 is ready to test resistance today at 3,110. Hmm.. sounds familiar?
The S&P 500 fell to exactly where it was supposed to fall today, as I noted last night, before the “trade fears” took the market by storm, to 3,080. That region held firm and bounced. Now there is a gap to fill up to 3,110 tomorrow.
Oh yeah, I said that last night, before knowing any of today’s headlines. So either I’m psychic, which I am most definitely not, or the market is just purely trading off technicals from an overbought region, which seems way more likely. Take all the headlines, and forget them; they are meaningless at this point.
What will matter today is the ISM services index at 10 AM. Pay close attention to the details. HERE MORE IN THE AUDIO COMMENTARY – MORNING COMMENTARY 12.4.19
Nvidia should be on watch today; the stock is bouncing back from yesterday’s sell-off. $212 has acted as a region of support and resistance. Now the stock will need to try to get back over $212, which may prove to be more challenging then it appears. Bearish momentum seems to be building as measured by the RSI.
Roku is bouncing back some after Monday’s sharp decline. $150 is once again a region of resistance that needs to be on watch. If the stock gets over $150 and the stock will work to fill the gap up to $161.
I will be watching $39.50 for AMD; it becomes a significant price point. It will likely signal if shares are heading back $40.50 or $37.20.
Salesforce is falling after reporting results last night. Resistance comes at $161; the stock has been struggling at that price. Premium content – Why SalesForce May Drop Following Results
