Market Rap 09/14/22 by CTG

SPY / QQQ / Vix

SPY 5 days, hourly candles and 15 days, 4hr candles S&P futures saw some bounce early this AM that cooled off the deep oversold conditions on that timeframe. The 4hr timeframe never quite got oversold, and could be a 4hr bear flag if bulls cant push above the futures/pre mkt high of 395.99 to negate.

395.99 the futures/pre mkt high

392.84 the corresponding futures low

SPY 3 months, daily candles Massive gap down open yesterday following the hotter than expected CPI report, back under the daily 12ema (white line) and the 50 day MA; as bears push things quickly to a test of the early Sept lows. Tremendous bull defense needed around those levels, or it becomes much more likely we'll eventually re-test the June lows. (support)

391.92 the low from yesterday


388.42 the 9/6 low



378.57 open gap


362.17 the June lows (resistance)

402.11 the daily 12ema back overhead

403.09 50 day MA ditto

403.10 the high from yesterday

QQQ 5 days, hourly candles and 15 days, 4hr candles Similar look here to the S&P but a bit more beaten up - the Nasdaq futures bounce cooled off the extreme hourly oversold RSI from the close yesterday; the 4hr timeframe got close to oversold but never quite got there. Heading back down currently to re-test yesterdays lows, as the hourly RSI clicks back oversold, and the 4hr gets closer. 296 the corresponding futures/pre mkt high

292.96 the pre mkt low so far (and falling)

QQQ 3 months, daily candles Only took a day to get back a week of bounce following the CPI report and big gap down (which was a gap up pre-CPI), 9/6 lows test coming quickly. (support)

292.79 the low from yesterday looking to get tested first thing

290.87 the 9/6 low


287.56 open gap



269.28 the June lows (resistance)

303.02 the high from yesterday

303.49 the daily 12ema quickly back overhead

307.40 the 50 day MA now much further above

Sept Vix futures awakened and regained a week of pullback in a day, testing recent highs

Spot Vix 3 months, daily candles Bounced and pushed thru the recent 27.45-27.80 tops (28.15 the high from yesterday) but closed below, so some small hope for bulls if it were to fail around there again.

Right back testing the upper end again this morning, as the broad market threatens more downside follow thru.
