Charts I’m Watching: Feb 10, 2015

Yesterday’s forecast called for a dip to the 50-day moving average.  From the members’ section in our initial post:

I’m looking for the initial move to take SPX to our 2046.7 target, with a secondary target of the SMA50 at 2043.90. If that should fall, the next strong support isn’t until the white .618 at 2032…

2015-02-09-SPX 30 0600SPX accommodated with fairly accurate tags at our target prices and times.

2015-02-10 SPX 30 0600We finished up the day with some indecision about that lower white target:

Quick update…2nd target hit, and a 50:50 shot on the third.  VIX and bonds suggest it’ll happen tomorrow morning.  But, TPTB might easily hold the line here.  Hold the short only if you can hedge and/or handle the overnight risk.

For the umpteenth time, news (founded or not) out of Greece dominated the overnight sessions.  Zerohedge has been running a story (citing Bloomberg) that — following offers from Russia and/or China to fund its deficits — Greece has obtained a 6-month extension on its debt deal with the ECB.

Predictable, markets have ramped higher.  USDJPY broke through the trend line off the Dec highs — sending ES up over 12 points as we go to press.
