As you’ll see in the chart provided, 295 was resistance 3 times before the SPY made all-time highs.
Now it’s been resistance for the last 3 weeks.
The trend line from the Dec. 2018 low is based on weekly closes.
The SPY closed under it last week.
If SPY doesn’t close over 295 this week it will be the second close under the trend line.
S&P 500 (SPY) Support Friday’s high, 289.33 Resistance at 50-DMA and swing high area, 294.
Russell 2000 (IWM) Support around 149 area. Resistance at 200 DMA, 151 then 152.70.
Dow (DIA) I’d just focus on range low, 254 and range high 264.60.
Nasdaq (QQQ) Support area at 186, then 184. Needs to break the swing high, 189.70.
KRE (Regional Banks) Support around 49.50. Resistance at the range high at 51.70 then 51.50.
SMH (Semiconductors) Tight 4-day range. Support at the gap fill at 110. Resistance at 116, then 120.
IYT (Transportation) Support at pivotal area, 180. Resistance 186 then 191.
IBB (Biotechnology) Sitting just under the 200 DMA. Support at 104. Looks interesting if it can close over 107.
XRT (Retail) Nice strong day. Support at 39.50, then swing low 37.46. Major resistance around 41.30.
Bye for now,
Geoff is filling in for Mish until August 24th.
