ST trend: neutral
Yesterday bears took control since the o/n after dropping price below ML. The entire o/n session price was capped by ML and then they pushed price below macro-ML into a nice flush towards 3920 lvl, overshooting it slightly. Bulls woke up then and after an unconfirmed low on FGSI managed to push back.
The o/n session was bull friendly this time around. Bulls managed to build on the late session bounce and won back both macro-ML and ML.However, after reacting the important 3970 area, they stalled and now price is back-testing ML again. ML is the key near term, if bulls manage to defend here, then the door for more upside is opened. If ML fails, macro-ML is last defense for bulls. Below that and flood gates open again with yesterday's LOD open to be retested.
Today is FOMC, so it's quite likely the market will chop around waiting for that before choosing a path. Reaction to MSFT and GOOGL earnings seems to be positive, despite the earnings miss. So that could be a sign that markets are ready to rally no matter how bad earnings or guidances are. Fireworks expected after FOMC at 2pm. With clearer direction to be set tomorrow/Friday.
