The VIX Volatility Index is still hanging near 10 as we head into week 26 and lower volume is showing up (summer doldrums). However, Permabears are starting to increase the volume of their bearish drum beat.

FANG/FAAMG stocks remain steady and climbing back upside as the YM/ES are not seeing the deep pullback that the NQ did in Week 23. This may give the NQ an opportunity to play catch up in momentum. Overall, economic data is not as strong as we wish it to be. So we await Q2 earnings season for clarity to the big picture.


Key events in the market this week include FED speakers, GDP, non-Farm Payrolls and end of Q2.

Technical momentum probability REMAINS in an UPTREND on the bigger picture as we hold above the key moving averages. As always, BEWARE of the catalyst wrench (Washington Politics) that looms overhead if and when the market may sell off in reaction to unsettling news.


With the NQ breaking the 61.8%  pullback and now holding above the 10ema, short term test will be for the index to hold above and move towards the all time highs. Any pullback will watch the 50ma and MML lower zones. Deeper pullbacks will look to the 200ma and open gaps.

ES/YM maintaining it’s momentum upside, holds in consolidation at the 10ema. Pullback to the 50ma will be the first level of support. Momentum upside look back up to the highs.

Attempting to determine which way a market will go on any given day is merely a guess in which some will get it right and some will get it wrong. Being prepared in either direction intraday for the strongest probable trend is by plotting your longer term charts and utilizing an indicator of choice on the lower time frame to identify the setup and remaining in the trade that much longer. Any chart posted here is merely a snapshot of current technical momentum and not indicative of where price may lead forward.
