Market Rap 05/12/22 by CTG

SPY / QQQ / Vix

SPY 5 days, hourly candles S&P futures broke yesterdays lows, hourly and 4hr RSI still have room for more selling before they're oversold, as the market resists the big gap down open again 388.81 the corresponding futures/pre mkt low so far

395 the corresponding futures high

SPY 3 months, daily candles Lower lows for the last 5 days in a row, as the downtrends continue and we inch closer to daily oversold conditions (support)

391.96 the low from yesterday, small gap down open shaping up currently - zooming out to the weekly chart next to look for lower levels of support (resistance)


SPY 3 year, weekly candles Weekly downtrend continues as the weekly RSI inches closer to oversold conditions, testing levels last seen early in '21 (support)

383.90 from March '21

371.88 after that (resistance)


QQQ 5 days, hourly candles Nasdaq futures also broke yesterdays lows, closer to hourly oversold conditions and the 4hr RSI is also currently oversold again 287.19 the corresponding futures/pre mkt low so far

294.64 the corresponding futures high

QQQ 3months, daily candles Daily downtrend continues as we inch closer to daily oversold; Volume picking up but mostly controlled selling so far, as little bear flag bounces along the way keep cooling off the RSI. Zooming out to the weekly next to find the next levels of support from the fall of 2020 290.95 the low from yesterday, trading under there now for the gap down open set up (resistance)

304.09-305.76 the highs from the past few days

QQQ 3 year, weekly candles Weekly downtrend continues as volume increases and the RSI clicks into oversold territory (support)

288.07 from late Nov '20 getting lost here in pre mkt

280.62 next from early Nov '20

266.97 after that, from late October of '20 during the pre-election sell off

260.11 from Sept '20 the next major level (resistance)


May Vix futures 3months, daily candles Daily bull flag look currently, heading up to test the highs from Tuesday

Spot Vix 3 months, daily candles Still under the highs seen 5/2 (36.64)

and from late Feb/early March (37.52-37.79) as the sell off in the broad market indices continues in a relatively controlled manner. Selling velocity and ranges would need to widen from here to see us pop into the 40s

Vix futures curve has been in backwardation (front months higher than back months) but generally the front end of the curve will see a much steeper angle when these sell offs get into their final phase
