Michele Schneider

Stocks were mixed with Tech posting another strong day and Industrials closing in the red.

I’m enjoying some time away in Boca Raton, so the “daily” post will just include key price levels across the major stock market ETFs.

Key Price Levels:

S&P 500 (SPY) – Look for support at the pivot area, 277.50 and 277. Next resistance is 280, and then the swing high is at 281.87.

Russell 2000 (IWM) – 155.60 should be  Near-term resistance. 154 support and big pivotal area. 

Dow Jones Industrials (DIA) – Use 256 as the immediate pivotal are for Wednesday. Then some Support at 255. Resistance at the 10-DMA, 258 then more at 259.

Nasdaq (QQQ) – 175.79 is the immediate pivotal point for tomorrow. A close under 174.77 is the best sign rally over for now.

SMH (Semiconductors) – 104 resistance with 102-102.50 key support to hold.
