The Closing Print live trading and financial blog during market hours.

There was a lot of speculation as to the notable lack of volume during the Tuesday trading session. Many subscribe to the thought that traders reduced their risk going into the debate. In any case, the S&P500remains between the 3200 – 3400 range going into October OPEX.

Futures dipped to 3491.00 (+/-) in overnight trading. That apparently fills the gap as futures dipped approximately 65 handles.

Support held at 322.00 (+/-). RSI needs to stay above 50.

SPY Daily

The key resistance for SPY is the 50d moving average. Without dealer participation, there is a risk of a sharp drop going into the elections. With this in mind, we intend to hedge our positions when warranted
