Good morning traders!
The S&P 500 ($SPY) is trading above Friday’s close. Let’s get into it…
Stocks are trading higher this morning as the momentum continues from Friday’s rally. Last week, employment data showed a minor slowdown in hiring from previous figures in November, some signs of progress in the Fed’s attempt to ease inflation. As for the near term future, the S&P 500 ETF broke out of the consolidation channel the market has been stuck in for over a week of trading. The next major level of resistance the team at DailyBubble is watching is the 200D SMA (Simple Moving Average) on a one day chart. This price level also sits close to December’s value area high on a monthly volume profile (~$397.50), an area which we believe shorts will be present. As of right now, a lot can still happen that can change the short term outlook, such as Fed Chair Jerome Powell, who speaks tomorrow at 9:00am. We advise everyone to trade cautiously as volatility is high.
In the news, Citigroup CEO Jane Fraser said the Fed will raise interest rates to just under 5.5% by May, stating “overall U.S. inflation has peaked, but services inflation continues to be painfully persistent.” She also included, “We see the Fed increasing its terminal rate to just under 5.5% by next May and holding rates at that level through the end of this year,” Fraser also stated she sees a recession happening in the later part of 2023.
