MACRO

S&P 500 (SPY)

The S&P 500 is looking to start the day higher, but again, not much has changed since yesterday. Resistance still lives around 2985 for the index. Until the index manages to cross that level, any rally should be considered suspect.

STOCKS

Acadia (ACAD)

Acadia shares are rising after RBC started the stock as a buy with a $60 price target. The stock has come under some pressure recently, but a lot of that is due to the weakness that has been witnessed in the broader sector. A falling wedge has formed in the chart, which would suggest a reversal higher is likely on the way.
