Stocks are rebounding some this morning, with the S&P 500 futures up about 80 bps and the Nasdaq QQQ up 1%. not quite the Miracle Monday type of price action we are used too but up none the less.
S&P 500 (SPY)
The S&P 500 looks a little iffy, and this may turn out to be one of those rare Mondays that doesn’t result in the market finishing higher. The futures appear to be forming a potential head and shoulders pattern on the intraday chart. But we need a break of 3,300 to confirm that bearish intraday pattern. Should that break of support happen, the index is likely to drop towards 3,200.
NASDAQ 100 (QQQ)
We can see that a similar pattern has formed a similar intraday pattern on the NASDAQ 100 futures as well.
DocuSign was upgraded today to overweight from equal weight with a $260 price target at Morgan Stanley. The stock has struggled recently to get out of this $220 to $230 region. Also, the shares appear to have some overhead resistance at an uptrend. A failure to advance beyond $235 likely indicates that the stock is heading lower from here, not higher.
KeyBanc downgraded AT&T to Underweight from Sector Weight and a $25 price target. The stock has been slowly grinding lower towards support around $27.35.
Opco boosted its price target on Starbucks to $101 from $85 and kept its outperform rating. The stock has been stuck around $85 to $90 for some time. A failure to advance beyond $90 is likely to lead to a drop to approximately $78.50.
Have a great day!
