   Below you will find the Index Support and Resistance for Tuesday, 2/2/2016 as calculated from the changes in Index points through Monday, 2/1/2016’s close.  This February has 29 days.   Due to Mr. & Ms. Fickle Markets repeated trashing of the markets in January, which sent the indexes to successive new intraday Lows, I have added Section V.  Index: 52week High,  52week Low, (Close 12/31/2015) to track changes in this info.

III.  Index Support and Resistance for Tuesday, 2/2/2016

   Below you will find the 52 week performance, and the Year-to-Date (YTD) performance to the selected indexes.  I 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 Russell’s 1000, 2000, 3000, the CBOE Interest Rate 10 Year T Note (INDEX CBOE: TNX), as well as the Volatility Index (VIX) for the S&P500.
   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.
   Please Note: ALL projections are for reference only as they can be easily exceeded, up or down, by Mr. & Ms. Fickle Markets.
