Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDU)
It could be a hard time for DJIA to bounce from SMA 200 and lift above 25,700 resistance. Even though the futures pointed upward, we think the index might stall between SMA 200 and 25,700. Earnings season so far could prevent the index moving lower, but trade tension and rising U.S dollar is a big threat.
Currently, the best options traders could take is to stay sideways and waiting for more hints.
Pepsico Inc (PEP)
PEP might finally decline as the share prices made reaction near SMA 200. The bearish reaction might indicate the continuation of the bearish trend after breakout below the averages. Traders could take a short position with a stop above daily SMA 200. $100.00 – $103.00 is the target area for the bearish move.
