•Stocks: INTU beat and raise; PANW beat and confirmed guidance; BKE beat; WDAY beat and buying VNDLY; AMAT miss and lowered guidance; WSM beat; FL beat but raised supply chain issue; FTCH miss; TLRY Germany to legalize Cannabis
•Indices: USA indices are mixed with Nasdaq green and R2K red and lagging. Global markets are positioned risk-off and FANG stocks are the safety trade and the key for supporting today. SPX Call wall 4700 resistance with support at 4675 and 4650. Indices are short term oversold and odds favor a bounce however one should take care if the support levels are breached.

Markets are set-up risk-off into Opex and rising Covid concerns. Usual playbook is to pile into FAANGM to support the index. Yesterday it was AAPL and AMZN and in the premarket MSFT is getting a bid so look for a potential outsized move in MSFT. 342.11 would be a momentum breakout on hourly chart or one could use the Thurs high of 341.56 as a trigger with a stop below the Thurs low.
