$140 Billion Evaporates

The TSLA drama unfolded Tuesday with a sharp 12% sell off. While it certainly would be a panicky moment if you were one of the traders leveraged long for the gamma squeeze, for others it was a nice trading opp if you were focused on the technicals.  Notice on the 60min chart. Key support was clearly identified. We also highlighted a big void in the volume / price profile where price often moves quickly. Then as price moved into high volume / price support and the unfilled gap, price momentum slowed down and had reactions in the expected locations. Now looking ahead, There is a thin band of support between $1020-$1000.  A break of $1000 opens the door for a run to the unfilled gap at $942 – $910. There is a big level of support at $875 that i would expect to be a floor.

Market Insights

Gold trying to make a move

Honestly, gold has been a pathetic performer, especially given the inflationary environment.  Crypto has stolen the show.  Setting that aside, GLD above $171 opens the door for a potential double bottom measured move to the $180’s.  Watch that level plus $1835 on the /GC gold futures chart. Above that may bring in bore technical buyers.

Soft Rates boost Homebuilders

Price is attacking the prior highs. A breakout would target $82.  The ETF is extended so some consolidation here under resistance would be helpful.

Remember the oil sell off?    It lasted 48 hours. 

Buy the breakout; step in on dips as price pulls into ema or technical support.

Vitol Group sees Oil demand and prices going higher.
