JULY 10TH 2013 MARKET OUTLOOK

EQUITIES…. Sept E Mini S&P’s closed higher again on Tuesday as market participants remain optimistic that 2nd quarter earnings will be strong & offer support that the US economy is continuing on a recovery path.

Alcoa, the world’s largest aluminum producer and perennial kickoff company for earnings season set an initial positive tone as higher than expected demand for aluminum from the aircraft industry seemed to overcome the overall weakness in prices for the base metal. The focus on earnings will increase on Friday, as banking giants JP Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo are set to report earnings. Market participants will likely be just as focused upon the guidance offered by the banks as the deteriorating interest rate complex over the last quarter will likely be a key topic with regards to the revenue environment for financial institutions. Energy and material shares were the leaders in what was essentially a broad based rally as buyers seem to be taking part in a “Buy the Rumor” mini trend leading up to earnings releases. Near term upside movement in the market also remains supported by the notion that Friday’s employment data was a “perfect storm” with regards to numbers of job created vs. the unemployment figure remaining above the FOMC target level. The foundation of this upside movement likely remains the current path of least resistance and could be vulnerable to downward spikes on fundamental/earnings surprises or disappointments. How the markets choose to digest the realities of earnings will likely be the catalyst of a new trading range over the next few weeks. Look for a possible increase of volatility on Wednesday as FOMC minutes for the June meeting are scheduled to be released.

Some key technical levels to look at for the September E Mini, for support looking at the 1632.75 level, which is just above the 61.8 (red line) Fibonacci retracement level. A break and close below this level could set up a possible downside retracement target of 1624.00. Initial resistance for the contract could be setting up at 1648.50, with a break & close above this level setting up a possible retest of 1654.00 just above the upper daily Keltner Channel. A close above this level puts 1658.00 & 1663.75 back into play as possible upside targets.

TREASURIES-September US 10 year notes moved slightly higher as traders failed to commit one way or another ahead of the release of the FOMC June meeting minutes scheduled for release at 2:00 PM EST on Wednesday. The Treasury complex did gain some upward movement as yields continued to remain in relatively attractive levels in the near term and Tuesday’s auction of $32 billion of US 3 year notes was relatively well received with a Bid to Cover of 3.35.

CRUDE OIL-September Crude Oil continued higher throughout Tuesday’s session, though it backed off from the highs, as ongoing strength in equities, expectations of ongoing supply draw downs, and a lack of  concrete resolutions in Mid East tensions continue to support the path of least resistance for crude oil…which is higher. Expectations are for another strong draw down of WTI supplies on Wednesday’s EIA inventory numbers.
