III.  Index Support and Resistance for Thursday, 11/19/2015

Below you will find the 52 week performance, and the Year-to-Date (YTD) performance to the selected indexes.  I previously added the 200 day simple moving average (SMA) calculations to those of the CBOE Interest Rate 10 Year T Note (INDEX CBOE: TNX).  For tracking the day’s action, here are the Pivot Points, Support points, Resistance points,  and the 50 day simple moving averages (sma),  for the DJIA, the NasdaqComp, the S&P 500, the Russells 1000, 2000, 3000 and the CBOE Interest Rate 10 Year T Note (INDEX CBOE: TNX).

If the related index, or stock, is above the pivot point, the pivot point is both support, and an indication that Mr. & Ms. Fickle Markets are Bullish.  If the related Index, or stock, is below the pivot point, then the pivot point represents resistance, as well as an indication that Mr. & Ms. Fickle Markets are Bearish.
