S&P 500 Futures Trading Update: Bears Stir The Pot

Broad Stock Market Futures Outlook for June 18, 2018

Stocks are sliding into deeper support levels as the bears come out of the gates with heavy selling. This is a continuation of Friday’s action.

Dips look to be deeper in the early going but a bounce is coming. The strength or weakness of that bounce will be telling.

Familiar support near 2765 now testing as buyers continue to struggle.

The failure to hold these regions will bring 2756 into view and then 2747.  Resistance is now at the old support we watched fade on Friday near 2776.   The bullets below represent the likely shift of trading momentum at the successful or failed retests at the levels noted.

  • Buying pressure intraday will likely strengthen with a bullish retest of 2776.75
  • Selling pressure intraday will likely strengthen with a bearish retest of 2764.5
  • Resistance sits near 2778.5 to 2782.75, with 2787.5 and 2794.75 above that
  • Support sits between 2762.5 and 2758.75, with 2751.25 and 2746.75
