- Asian stocks ended the session lower as well. China’s Shanghai lost 0.7%, Japan’s Nikkei 225 slid 0.4% and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index lost 0.8%.
WE got a light day on the economic news with just 1 report out September Consumer Credit is set to report at 3:00 p.m.
With no major economic news or reports today the market will be mostly guided by rumors overseas along with a fresh batch of earnings reports. Right now we are in a bit of no mans land in the markets. We are right under some big resistance (200dma) that will be our 1st target to the upside while we use last weeks lows of spx 1215 as our big level of support. Till we break below that range I’ll still be playing setups on the longside and will give the bulls the benefit of the doubt
all good good gaps with volume. will be in play for end of day rips or dips.
