S&P 500 Futures
The S&P futures are rising above critical levels of resistance today at 2,818 the first positive sign of the day.
S&P 500 (SPY)
I continue to believe that the S&P 500 will work to refill the gap at 2,852 from last weeks sell-off.
One thing to watch is the 10-year yield. For now, the market is fixated on the direction of rates. Yields are moving up today and for now, are holding support around 2.4%. It seems reasonable to me 10-Year could rise back to 2.53%, at least for the short-term.
The VIX index tested and held resistance around 17.50 yesterday and is now retreating another positive sign that stocks should be on the rise. A drop in the VIX below 15.20 sends stocks much higher.
Nvidia is rising today after it was initiated at Piper Jaffray to overweight with a $200 price target. I noted yesterday in a free write-up that the stock looked poised to rise back to $198.
Netflix continues to rebound, and I think this stock can work itself way higher back to $378.
I noted yesterday in a premium article that there was some bullish option betting in Citigroup that suggests shares may rebound back to around $65 by the middle of April. Support “around’ $61 has been fairly firm, and as long as the stock can hold that region of support, a rebound seems possible. Bullish Betting On Citigroup Indicate Shares May Rise
Tesla’s stock has been destroyed, and the stock totally did not work the way I had originally wanted or thought. But this region around $250 to 260 has typically offered good support for the stock. As long as that hold that stock should rebound. Interestingly, the RSI is still trending higher, which would suggest that the longer-term trend in the stock is still higher.
Acadia is still trending higher and there appears to be a bullish rising triangle pattern forming which would indicate a breakout and move to $31 may be on the way.
Good luck today.
