Headline News:

U.S. stock futures were mixed to start the day as Beijing moved to impose new security laws on Hong Kong, and investors fear the move could strain trade relations with the United States. China also dropped its growth forecast for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic. China’s Shanghai index fell 1.9%, and Hong Kong’s Hang Sang index dropped 5.6% in early trading. The U.S. has a market holiday on Monday for Memorial Day, so trading could be volatile to end the week.

Markets:

The S&P 500 has formed a small trading range of 2913.86-2954.86 over the last four days, and the index looks set to possible move above the 200-day moving average. Volume has been below average, which in normal while building a base for a move higher. We feel the next move could be higher, but we will wait for a breakout with above-average volume before moving back to short-term bullish.

We are currently long-term bullish and short-term bearish.
