TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
some positive headlines hit the tape regarding the China trade deal, and by 10:00 the ESU had rallied to print another new all time high at 2969.25. From there, sell imbalances began to increase, and they eventually took over, taking the futures back down to 2955.50.
Once the morning excitement died down, the ES drifted sideways in a 6 handle range for the rest of the day, patiently waiting for the June Quad Witch expiration to pass.
Going into the close, we were pretty much expecting a heavy MOC imbalance, due to the options expiration, and we weren’t disappointed when the MiM reveal showed close to $4 billion to buy. The futures made a counter reaction to that number though, breaking from 2962.00 down to 2955.00 on the 3:00 cash close, and finishing the day at 2951.00 on the 3:15 futures close, just a few handles off the Globex lows.
