Equities Market Continues Its Short-term Slide

In my weekly Tom’s Newsletter found on my premium options analysis and educational website www.tomsoptiontools.com, aka Toms Tools, I analyze the overall equities markets by analyzing the chart on the SPY.

This is the ETF that tries to replicate the returns of the S&P 500 Index.

I then go into other charts on other ETF’s like the QQQ which has as its goal replicating returns of the NASDAQ 100 Index.

I Am Looking for Where the Markets May Find Support

I actually look for support and resistance but when the markets pull back as they have I try and find where a next level support may happen so I can then consider bullish option opportunities.

Other Technical Indicators

I also look at other technical indicators like candlesticks, momentum indicators and Fibonacci, but I start with support and resistance as that tells the story the best as where investors and traders are putting their money to work

Take a look at the chart on the SPY and QQQ and where I visually highlight where support may eventually be or in the case of the QQQ where it may already be.
