Index Support and Resistance for Monday, 2/29/2016

 

 

  Below you will find the Index Support and Resistance for Monday, 2/29/2016 as calculated from the changes in Index points through Friday, 2/26/2016’s close.  Since  February 2016 has 29 days, 2016 is a.k.a.  “Leap Year”, this Monday will be the last trading day of February 2016.  Tuesday, is the first day of March, 2016, the last third of the trading days in the, to date, miserable first quarter of 2016, and we are expecting increased trading and volatility as funds window dress for upcoming Q1 2016 financial reporting to share holders.
As I pointed out for Monday, 2/22/2016, traders were/are obsessing over breaking thru, and closing above 1950 points on the S&P 500.  We hit a high of 1946.70 and closed at 1924.44 on Monday, 2/22/2016.  On Tuesday, we hit a high of 1942.38 and closed at 1919.44.  On Thursday, we hit a high of 1951.83 and closed at 1925.41.  On Friday, we hit a high of 1962.96, and again sellers came beating stocks down so the S&P 500 closed at 1945.78 points. At first glance it appears an easy call to blame the “bears” for the selling; but, bull profit taking also accounts for a chunk of the selling.
For Monday, as posted below, the S&P 500 Volatility Index (VIX) is projected to hit a high of 20.81 and a low of 19.14.  See the “projected” Highs and “projected” Lows below.
