SPY 3 months, daily candles Daily bounce got underway yesterday with a gap up, that's looking to be filled today as we're currently shaping up to gap down under yesterdays lows. Daily and weekly downtrends in play. (support)

July Vix futures 3 months, daily candles Seeing a healthy bounce, as the broad index futures give back most of yesterdays gains

Spot Vix 3 months, daily candles After a brief probe under 30 yesterday we're back above; Wide moves and ranges should be expected both directions S&P futures vs fair value: -55.40. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: -213.00.The S&P 500 futures are down 51 points and are trading 1.5% below fair value. The Nasdaq 100 futures are down 178 points and are trading 1.8% below fair value. The Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are down 353 points and are trading 1.1% below fair value. There has been no follow through to yesterday's rebound effort, which is perhaps the biggest reason for the drop in the futures market this morning. The inclination to sell quickly into strength is undercutting investor sentiment once again along with concerns about economic prospects. The latter have shown up this morning in weakening commodity prices -- copper futures are down 3.1% to $3.91/lb and WTI crude futures are down 4.8% to $104.73/bbl -- and strengthening prices in the Treasury market. The 2-yr note yield is down 10 basis points to 3.12% while the 10-yr note yield is down 11 basis points to 3.20%. The weakness in gasoline futures (-2.1% to $3.71/gal) is also telling, as it comes on top of reports that President Biden is calling on Congress to suspend the national gas tax. Doing so could help provide some price relief at the pump, but at the same time, the lower prices would stoke demand. Reports indicate this proposal could hit a wall in Congress. Corporate news is limited today and is not serving as a market driver. A potential driver, though, will be Fed Chair Powell's Semiannual Monetary Policy Report to the Senate Banking Committee at 9:30 a.m. ET. Nervousness ahead of the report, and Q&A session, is likely contributing to this morning's cautious-minded tone. In corporate news:

  • Airbnb (ABNB 99.20, -3.07, -3.0%): JMP Securities downgrades to Market Perform from Market Outperform

  • Winnebago (WGO 47.00, +1.24, +2.7%): beats by $1.17, beats on revs

  • La-Z-Boy (LZB 24.90, +2.17, +9.6%): beats by $0.15, beats on revs; expects delivered sales of +7-10% yr/yr in JulQ

  • Korn/Ferry (KFY 54.25, +0.41, +0.8%): beats by $0.20, beats on revs; guides Q1 EPS above consensus, revs above consensus

Fed chatter up the wazoo today, Powell LIVE at 9:30 et
