Trading Plan for February 7, 2012



February 07, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: SPY

Economic Reports Due out (Times are EST): ICSC-Goldman Store Sales (7:45am), Redbook (8:55am), Bernanke Speaks (10am), Consumer Credit (3pm)

Premarket Update (Updated 9am eastern):

US Futures are slightly lower heading into the open. 

Asian markets were mixed in trading. 

European markets are down ranging from -0.5% down to -0.9%.

Technical Outlook (S&P):

Yesterday was a good day of consolidation for the markets, forming a doji-dragonfly candle at the close. 

This was similar price action to what we saw during the 1/26-1/31 pullback. A few more days of similar action would be helpful to cool off the markets some. 

It is key for the S&P to hold on to 1331, as it represents the previous multi-year resistance level (now support). 

Volume was notably lighter yesterday on the market weakness. 

Trend-line support is at 1295 off of the 11/28 lows. 

The S&P, as well as other indices (particularly the Russell), have gone completely parabolic in their price action of late. 

We remained as overbought as ever, which eventually has to be reconciled.
