Pre-opening Comments for Wednesday August 14th

U.S. equity index futures moved lower this morning. S&P 500 futures were down 39 points in pre-opening trade. Index futures responded partially to an inversion in the Treasury yield curve by two year and ten year treasuries and partially to sharp weakness in European equity indices.

Tilray dropped $4.62 to $41.40 after reporting a bigger than expected quarterly loss.


Canada Goose fell $1.01 to $42.20 after its loss in its fiscal first quarter widened from the same quarter last year.


CBS slipped $0.75 to $47.95 after Bernstein downgraded the stock to Underperform from Outperform.


Bristol Myers added $0.04 to $46.53 after Atlantic Equities upgraded the stock to Overweight from Neutral.

  1. Ron/BC Says:

    The $SPX continues to trade below broken support at 2940 and cleared resistance at 2815 both of which the market had a lot of battles with. Price is trapped between both these price points and needs to breakout or breakdown to suggest direction. The RSI 21 remains below the 50 line which is bearish.

  2. Larry/ON Says:

    SP500 will test support at the 200day at 2795 and perhaps the May low down at 2728. Those are both possible entry points for to put some long positions on for short trades. Janet Yellin was out saying that, while she is concerned, this inverted yield curve is likely a false recession signal this time around. Historically going back more than 50 years inverted yield curves precede recessions but often recessions do not necessarily follow inverted curves and the curve needs to remain inverted for an extended period to make a recession likely. When inversion happens it is a rise in the short end rather than a fall in the far end that is likely to precede a recession. A lot of discussion is out there about foreign money flows causing the long end to drop. We need some positive economic data to convince the market to participate in an extended upward run. Too many negatives out there at present but a snap back from major support is a buy signal.
