Market Rap 10/05/22 by CTG

SPY / QQQ / Vix

SPY 5 days, hourly candles S&P futures cooling off this recent bounce overnight, testing the last hourly "higher low" from mid-day yesterday 373.81 the pre mkt low

378.26 the after hours high from yesterday, before futures opened

SPY 3 months, daily candles Big continuation of the bounce yesterday, follow thru over the daily 12ema (white line). Volume profile was thin thru the range yesterday, and gets heavier again around 381-382ish. Straight bounce off the bottom, so bulls looking to set a daily "higher low" against recent lows whenever this bounce tops out (and hoping to avoid the same look as 9/6 thru 9/16).(resistance)

378 the high from yesterday

378.30 the 9/22 high

381-382ish is where a heavier volume profile resistance area comes back into play

389.31 the next major high after that (support)

372.83 the daily 12ema back underneath as support, watching today to see if bulls can avoid any red flags of too much giveback, and stay above that level

366.57 the low from yesterday



QQQ 5 days, hourly candles Nasdaq futures also seeing consolidation of yesterdays big continuation move, testing the mid-day "higher low" here as well 278.89 the pre mkt low

282.63 the after hours high from yesterday before futures opened

QQQ 3 months, daily candles Big gap up open and bounce continuation here yesterday as well, as it pushed over/closed over the daily 12ema (white line). Getting over that 9/28 high looks to break the downtrend on this timeframe, but will need to see a "higher low" followed by a "higher high" once this move tops out, to prove its more than just a deeply oversold bounce, and to avoid the look from 9/6 thru 9/16. (resistance)

282.85 the high from yesterday

283.03 the 9/22 high

283.42 small open gap

285ish heavier volume profile comes back into play

293.95 the next major level after that (support)

279.61 the daily 12ema

278.99 the low from yesterday

275.16 open gap



October Vix futures 3 months, daily candles More pullback yesterday as the broad market continued it's oversold bounce, getting about half of that move back so far today

Vix 3 months, daily candles Stayed under 30 all day yesterday, currently testing the high from yesterday of 29.62 (29.61 the high so far today). Broad market bulls want to see this fail here, or the next daily "higher low" gets set at yesterdays low of 28.56.

TLT 5 days, hourly candles and 3 months, daily candles Tightening up on the hourly timeframe.

So far failing to get over the 12ema (white line) on the daily timeframe.
