Index Support and Resistance for Monday, 3/28/2016

Sorry, I inadvertently drafted and published Index Support and Resistance for Monday, 3/28/2016 as a page …  Here it is … belatedly reprinted.

Below you will find the Index Support and Resistance for Monday, 3/28/2016 as calculated from the changes in Index points through Thursday, 3/24/2016’s close.  The calculations below are through Thursday’s closing data as the USA Markets were closed for the Good Friday. 

  FOUR DAYS!  Thursday’s close concluded the eighteenth trading day in March 2016.  There are only 4 more trading days left in March.  Those last 4 March trading days are also the last 4 trading days in the calendar first quarter of 2016 (Q1’2016).  That means, any funds looking to window dressing for their Q1’2016 report to their fund holders are just about out of time.  This will be a great time to take notes on March 2016 … for future reference.
