Market Rap 01/09/23 by CTG

SPY / QQQ / Vix

SPY 5 days, hourly candles S&P futures peeking thru the highs from Friday 390.05 the pre mkt high so far

387.58 the after hours low from Friday

SPY 3 months, daily candles Bulls flipped from defense to offense on Friday following the December jobs report. Punched thru the daily 12ema(white) on volume and went up and tested the 50 day MA(blue)/150 day MA(orange), and also filled the 12/15-12/16 gap. Unless bears find a way to quickly reverse the momentum today, bulls are negating the daily downtrend here as they push thru the most recent "lower high" areas. They'll still need to find a "higher low" then "higher high" whenever this run tops out, to confirm a new daily uptrend. (resistance)

389.25 the high from Friday, currently trading a bit over that level for the small gap up open set up ahead

389.61 the 50 day MA

390.05 the 150 day MA

January Vix futures 3 months, daily candles More lower lows here Friday, hanging out near those lows so far today

Spot Vix 3 months, daily candles The 50 day MA (blue) has been proving as "resistance" here since it got back below it in August. Both December bounces failed right there, and the attempt to push over that level to start the year was quickly reversed.

TLT 3months, daily candles and 3yr, weekly candles Convincingly got back above the 12ema here on Friday, on volume; with the next daily "higher low" set at Thursdays low of 101.78, just above the 50 day MA (blue).

The weekly bounce got underway last week as well, with the new weekly "higher low" now set at 99.35. [BRIEFING.COM] S&P futures vs fair value: +18.00.
