Technical Research Briefing

S&P FUTURES (December - @ES) – Daily

Currently: Short Looking to: Cover @ 2,462.50

As of 10/13/19 @ 9:00pm EST: 2,976.38

LAST WEEK: We suggested selling longs and getting short at 2,958.62 with stops above 2,965 and with a target of 2,880.

UPDATE: S&P futures jumped early Friday as shorts were scrambling for cover and longs are scrambling to add risk exposure.

If ES futures can manage a close above 2,997 on a daily basis, the bear thesis will be dead.

We would be willing to add shorts up to 2,997 with stops honored on a daily close above 2,998 and with a downside target of 2,740.

We would only be looking to buy dips if 2,997 is conquered and then would only do so on a pullback to 2,953 with stops on a close below 2,950. The upside target in that case would be 3,100.

Monday / Tuesday’s close is very important for both sides.
