The last few Fridays haven’t been kind to the Street, with the market closing lower three weeks in a row. Will today be a different story?
Exactly one year after setting its all-time intra-day high, the S&P 500 index (SPX) starts Friday well below that level, but appeared ready to challenge the psychological 2050 mark. For a while overnight, a rally in oil futures lent a positive hand to equities overseas, but the oil rally has fizzled somewhat. And John Deere (DE) reported disappointing second-quarter earnings.
Nevertheless, the futures market pointed toward a slightly higher open. From a technical standpoint, the slide over the last few weeks means the SPX has fallen through some key support points, notably the long-standing support at 2050. The question today is whether the SPX can hold support at 2044, challenge 2050, and generate a little positive spirit to spring into next week.
One ongoing theme seems to be a lack of conviction on Wall Street, with sectors bouncing up and down. For instance, Thursday’s trading saw financials fall after rallying on Wednesday, while utilities rose after falling on Wednesday.
