My Observations and What to Expect:

Futures are moderately higher.

 

Asia was mixed in trading ranging from -0.85% up to 0.45%, while Europe is trading about 1% higher on average. 

S&P ripped through the 20-day and 50-day moving averages yesterday.

Despite the nasty intraday sell-off, and close that was significantly lower, the S&P still managed to erase 50% of the day's losses, providing for a nice run into the close. 

The bounce occurred exactly at the 61.8% retracement level. 

Volume was below average. 

Market is heavily oversold in the Short-term, which could hamper the ability of the market to see further downside going forward.

Earnings season will see a wide range of major companies reporting this week, including Apple (AAPL)

Potential Head and Shoulders pattern forming on the S&P.

My Conclusion: Today's bounce heading into the open comes on the heals of very oversold conditions, I need to see these early morning gains hold into the close, if it cannot, there may be more downside in the short-term. 

Here Are The Actions I Will Be Taking:
