Good morning traders!
The S&P 500 ($SPY) is trading above yesterday’s close. Let’s get into it…
Markets are trading above yesterday’s close as traders and investors gear up for a busy day of corporate earnings, as well as the beginning of the Federal Reserve’s two-day policy meeting in Washington. Over the next few days, more than one hundred S&P 500 companies will report their December quarterly earnings, and the Federal Reserve will announce its highly anticipated interest rate decision. Due to the high level of volatility and uncertainty this week, it is advised that beginner traders size down or refrain from trading entirely.
In the news, China’s economy exhibited a strong rebound in January, the first full month after reopening, with the National Bureau of Statistics reporting that its primary PMI index increased to 50.1 from 47.0 in December. The widespread consensus is that growth is indicated by any reading above 50. On Thursday, the Bank of England and the European Central Bank will each announce significant rate decisions for their respective economies.
Long Trade Ideas:

Short Trade Ideas:
- Yesterday, the bears showed their presence, leaving us with clues for potential short trades.Today we are watching the 200D SMA on a 15 min chart for signs of resistance around ~$403.
