Tuesday Watchlist – July 26th
On Monday, $SPY was rejected right at the 0.618 level (at 397.3) and well right back to test the 390-393 zone. Some decline after hours due to Walmart’s warnings on profit outlook. Algos and net premiums remain bearish, with more direction to come from earnings releases and economic events beginning Wednesday.

Below 148 or 150 rejection: 146P 07/29 (208 Volume @ 0.21)
TGT was down huge after hours due to WMT earnings reaction. This would bode unwell for TGT as they sell premium products and with WMT taking a huge hit to their revenue on cheaper products, this can set for a disastrous earnings potential for TGT.
Levels Above 182: 183, 187.5, 191-192, 195 (50DMA), 198, 202 (50DMA)
Levels Below 179: 177, 175, 171

On the daily timeframe, CAT has been trading within an inside day pattern and was one of the few stocks that were showing relative strength in a choppy market. It’s currently trying to defend the trend-line set from January. On the 4hr time frame, CAT was forming an ascending triangle pattern with a breakout above 182 level if it manages to get enough volume on that break. The weekly timeframe also has CAT forming a rounded bottom as well which can set up for a move back to the 190s as long as 177 holds. Some bearish divergence on the algos.
Levels Above 182: 187, 194, 200 (200DMA), 208, 214

Below 182 level: 175P 07/29 (176 Volume @ 2.18)
On the daily timeframe, CRWD continues to trade in a large bear flag but continues to hold on. It closed a long-legged doji on Monday which shows indecision and an inside week so far on the weekly timeframe.
