US Futures Give Up Early Gains

  • After a more solid start to the Monday session, the equity outlook deteriorated after the London close as the e-mini S&P ebbed through the Friday lows.
  • This put index prices at the lowest levels since August 23rd, with next support undercutting at the Aug23 lows of 4433.50 ahead of the 50-dma / 50-day EMA at 4421.21 /4417.10.
  • Healthcare names added to the downside pressure, with tech and consumer discretionary sectors also in negative territory. Notable single names adding to the downside pressure include Moderna & Pfizer on a Lancet report suggesting a third round of vaccine boosters may not be necessary and Twitter & Netflix after a Goldman Sachs' re-rating.
  • On the continent, performance was more positive, helping most markets rise 0.5% or so. Spain's IBEX-35 outperformed, thanks to sizeable point contributions from Banco Santander, Iberdrola and BBVA.
