Market Rap 08/03/22 by CTG

SPY / QQQ / Vix

SPY 5 days, hourly candles S&P futures seeing some lift off yesterdays lows, bouncing into the middle of yesterdays range 407.68 the after hours from yesterday before futures opened

410.27 the corresponding futures/pre mkt high so far

SPY 3 months, daily candles Seeing some mild daily consolidation and still above Fridays lows, potential daily bull flag if yesterday/Friday lows hold up. Watching the 12ema (white line) after that if they break. Daily uptrend/Weekly downtrend in play here. (support)

406.77-406.82 the lows from the past few days

400.28 that daily 12ema

398.15 next


392.04 the 50 day MA

389.95 - anything above there on this consolidation keeps the daily uptrend intact (resistance)

413-413.41 the highs from the past few days

415.82-417.44 after that



QQQ 5 days, hourly candles Nasdaq futures also bouncing back into the middle of yesterdays range 313.46 the after hours high from yesterday, before futures opened

316.12 the corresponding futures/pre mkt high so far

QQQ 3 months, daily candles Still mostly resisting daily consolidation after a slight break of the previous days low yesterday saw no follow thru. A clear break of those levels and the daily 12ema (white line) is the support I'd look to next. Daily uptrend/weekly downtrend broken. (support)

311.84 the low from yesterday


305.60 the daily 12ema



294.45 the 50 day MA

293.54 the last daily "higher low" and the spot for bulls to stay anywhere above if we see deeper daily consolidation (resistance)

318.55-318.81 the recent highs




August Vix futures 3 months, daily candles Daily bounce underway here, inside bar so far today. If it breaks bull above 25.25, this daily bear flag look would get negated.

23.65 the area needed for the bear break lower.

Spot Vix 3 months, daily candles Debating on setting the next daily "lower high" in this downtrend it's been in the past month and a half.

Inside bar day here also -

24.68 needed for the bull break

22.67 needed for the bear break and confirmation the next daily "lower high" has been set.

TLT 3months, daily candles and 3yr weekly candles Daily bearish engulfing candle yesterday after refusing follow thru on the break of the weekly downtrend. Testing the 12ema (white line) currently.

116.47-116.71 the last daily "higher low" area, and spot the bears would need to break for the bulls to lose this daily uptrend.

115.17 the 50 day MA as next major support after that if they were to do so. [BRIEFING.COM] S&P futures vs fair value: +19.00. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: +47.40.The S&P 500 futures are up 21 points and are trading 0.5% above fair value. The Nasdaq 100 futures are up 64 points and are trading 0.4% above fair value.
