Stock Market Futures Higher But Hitting Layered Resistance

For yet another day in the stock market, higher lows hold.

Thus we get an early morning rally on the S&P 500 (INDEXSP: .INX). But be aware of overhead resistance here.

The S&P 500 market makers are showing a tight spread of +/- 43 points around the 2545 strike price for expiring options (tomorrow). That yields a range of 2502- 2588.

The rally higher continues to be a grind and strong resistance looms.

Pullbacks are likely to be bought due to positive momentum. But overhead resistance is creating a grinding motion.

Thus, breakouts may stall at layered overhead resistance levels. See details in video below.
