The 50 day MA comes in at 2626.53. High reaches 2625.50. Netflix is the first major tech firm to report after the close. 

The S&P moved to a new session high at 2525.50 but still could not breach the 50 day MA at 2626.58 (one point short).  A move above targets the 50% at 2643.


After the close Netflix will report earnings.  They represent the first major high flyer to announce in the earnings season. Earlier this week, they announced that they will increase the price for their subscription service to $13 from $11.  Since the December 24 low, the price rise to the recent high bounced 55.19%.  Man.....  The price is above its 100 and 200 day MAs at $317.87 and $334.08.  Buy the rumor. Sell the fact?

The GBPUSD moves to another new high

More momentum this time after pre-fixing fall whipped traders. I know I wrote how the waters got muddy on the break back below the 100 day MA.  That break occured a 10-15 minutes before the fixing.  By the time of the fixing, the price squeezed back higher and the price has moved to new session highs, and also above the Monday highs at 1.29298. The GBPUSD is trading at the highest level since November 15th.

Corbyn served by saying he would not be willing to negotiate without assurances that "no-deal" outcome is ruled out, but stated a better deal would include a "new comprehensive UK-EU customs union; a strong Single Market deal' and guarantees that there can be no race to the bottom on rights and standards"

USDJPY moves back toward days high in down and up session

100 bar MA on 4 hour chart tested The USDJPY moved to new London/NY session highs and in the process tests the 100 bar MA on the 4-hour chart at 109.06.  The high yesterday also tested that MA level but stalled.  The MA is also in a swing area that defined swing highs from Jan8 and Jan 9 (at 108.99 to 109.08).  A move above the MA is more bullish. Getting and staying above the 109.19, would be even more bullish for the pair.

A solid Philly Fed reading in the US session kept the Euro below 1.1400, though the single currency was supported on medium term interest.
