Uncertainty is the New Certainty

Markets found some footing last week after a multi-week slide. However, futures are pointing to a drop yet again, presumably because of the most recent Trump Tweet regarding Iran.

So flip a coin. The SPX found a decent amount of support at the 2800 level. There also appears to be a decent amount of resistance around 2900. Not sure there’s a reason this market will break out of this range for the week. After bleeding off most of the year’s momentum in the past two weeks, we could be in for some sideways action while participants sort out the news.

For now, look for a sideways move for the week. A move of the SPX below 2800 — even intra-day — could be a sign of further downside on the horizon. There seems to be little catalyst (short of a formally inked trade deal with China) to push the market through any of the upward resistance right now.
