Stock Market Struggle Begins to Avert the Decline

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018 Feb 08, 2018 - 02:56 PM GMT

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Stock-Markets

SPX futures are struggling to take back the losses that occurred just after the bell yesterday. That puts the fair market value at about 12 points below the close. There may be a bounce, but it may not last.

At 7:00 am ZeroHedge wrote, “U.S. stock index futures turn negative in an illiquid, volatile session as investor sentiment has yet to stabilize amid doubts whether the U.S. equity selloff is over as yields remain just south of the critical 2.85% level. S&P E-mini contracts slid 0.1%, while the VIX is up 1% to 28.1 after 2 days of declines. Including fair value, the Dow is expected to have an implied open of over 200 points lower while the S&P will open around 2,665.”


However, there is a concerted effort to open the cash market on a positive note. At 8:30 ZeroHedge reports, “Having been down over 1% overnight, US equity futures are all back in the green now, going vertical in the last few minutes as the dollar and bond yields suddenly slump...

Overnight weakness is gone...”

NDX futures declined as much as 88 points after yesterday’s close. This morning it appears to be opening about 30 points above the close…

That’s a lot of intervention in the overnight session. The central banks may be anticipating a lot of selling pressure this morning after the retracements appear to be over.

VIX futures are also down after a visit to the daily high after the close. But no new lows.

TNX is now pressing to make a new high that the Head & Shoulders target anticipates. The futures show that it has been accomplished but at this point the cash market appears to be lagging.

The Cycles Model allows strength through the weekend and possibly up to Wednesday of next week. As pointed out previously, Head & Shoulders patterns are often weaker at 4th Wave locations, We will be looking either for the target to be met or TNX falls beneath the Cycle Top support at 27.15 for a sell signal.

In casy you were wondering about the spike in yields and the sell-off in equities, the Federal reserve reduced its balance sheet by $22.09 between January 24 and January 31. If you go to the website, click on the 3 month chart to get the full impact.

USD futures fell back to 90.00 in a probable retest the Cycle Bottom at 89.34 this morning. We may see another day or two of weakness, but strength may reappear through options expiration week.

WTI futures made a morning low at 61.09 as it starts to challenge the 50-day Moving Average support at 60.89. It is already on a sell signal which becomes confirmed beneath the 50-day. Overhead resistance is Intermediate-term and bottom trendline of the Ending Diagonal formation at 62.64.

Tony
