/CL futures are currently trading above previous value area. Heavy volume has been traded at 33.53 making this price the POC for the past week. Look for this price point to remain sticky today. If economic relief is announced today by the US, expect a jump in prices to the next few levels of resistance. However, a move past 36.35 is unlikely and has strong resistance.

/NQ futures are halted after a large surge during the overnight session. Anticipation of US economic relief has caused sentiment to turn positive. As with /ES, we are expecting a buy the rumor sell the news type of event, as the uncertainty around the coronavirus continues into the future.

Auction Profile:

Down auction


/6E futures continue to move downward while trading narrowly in the center of the previous range. This shows a lack of conviction from both buyers and sellers and a range day the most likely outcome. Downside risk is still elevated.

 

BRITISH POUND

1.2306

1.2389

1.24 - GEX

1.2446


Key Resistance Levels:

1.2551

Auction Profile:

Down auction


/6B futures are down once again following the overnight session. Price is below the previous value area with strong rejection at 1.2636. Continued downward movement is the most likely scenario.

 

FINAL THOUGHTS


While VIX futures are down from their highs around 66, they remain above 50. Volatility will remain elevated into the near future and will effect all major markets. S&P and NASDAQ futures have both been halted until RTH due to positive movement today. We expect a continued upward climb in both indices until news is announced, then we expect the selloff will resume. Keep this in mind as you watch the markets.
