U.S. Markets slumped today following the latest comments from Fed Chair Jerome Powell as the Federal Open Market Committee decided to keep interest rates unchanged while Powell stressed the potential for a long economic recovery ahead. All three major U.S. indices closed with over 2% losses as Apple, Tesla, and Facebook traded lower ahead of their earnings releases, set to come out after market close today. Microsoft released earnings yesterday and also saw a slight dip while GameStop, AMC Entertainment, and BlackBerry received significant boosts this week behind social-media discourse. The VIX also saw sharp movement today as we head towards the mid-point of earnings season with Visa, MasterCard, and Comcast set to report tomorrow while next week will feature Amazon, Alibaba, Alphabet, Pfizer, and many more. Globally, European markets closed in the red while Asian markets were mixed. The SPY has set the top at $386-level and broke through short-term support at $377. It is our opinion that the market could be prone to further corrections and the next level of support is set at the 50-day moving average, $364-$370. We continue seeing a strong rotation from growth to value stocks and until an additional breakout is maintained, our models are projecting SPY to trade in the range of $364-$390. We encourage all market commentary readers to maintain clearly defined stop-levels for all positions. For reference, the SPY Seasonal Chart is shown below:
