Feels like Risk Off 

Both SPY and QQQ appear to be rolling out of extended runs and are poised for more corrective activity.  I am not expecting some catastrophic melt down but simply a move lower to some well defined levels where I’d expect buyers to step in. The reflation / re-opening trade has stalled with energy, regional banks, airlines, travel and other re-opening plays pulling back. You can see the underperformance in IWM compared to both SPY and QQQ.

NFLX Netflix rug pull

THe pulled the rug on Netflix after earnings and now price is set to open with a huge gap above. This is a good set up for a bracket trade.  I am inclined to think price would move down to re-test the low side of the trading range at $470.  That would be a very objective place to try a long with a stop just below.



A detailed walk-through of the levels and trading strategy for the indexes is given in the video ( link above) . The static charts are provided for reference. The FATMAAN names are also reviewed in the video.
