  • Market Rests On Love Day! SPX, Nasdaq, PCLN, ISRG, AAPL, CLF, WLT, ATI, BTU, FCX, MET, ZNGA 0 comments

    Happy Valentine's Day!

    As disussed in my Market Forecast this weekend, the market has been treading water, trading in a tight range. The broader market was weak for most of the day, but rallied back in the last 30 minutes. Still, some high-flyers just kept on flying higher: PCLN recorded a new all-time high at $588.56; it was up more than $40 in 2 days before coming back down to close at $576.94; ISRG hit a new all-time high at $514.55; AAPL closed at its new all-time high of $$509.56!

    On the other hand, mining stocks were very weak and have been dropping for days: CLF -2.75%; WLT -5.7%; ATI -2.26%; BTU -3.59%, FCX -3.81%.

    After the market, MET reported a solid quarter; its stock added +2.36% in after-hours. ZNGA posted a loss for 4Q, sending its shares down 7%. PEET missed its earnings estimate; its shares dropped 4%.

    The Dow was up +4.24 points; SPX was down 1.27 points; Nasdaq was up +0.44 point:

    XME (metals and mining) was down 2%. BTK (biotechs) slipped 1.43%. Rest of the big sectors were basically flat.


    SPX was down 1.27 points to close at 1350.50. Its daily MAs and MACD were little changed.


    Nasdaq added +0.44 point to close at 2931.83.

    The market is consolidating around SPX 1350. VIX seems to be hitting some resistance at 20. We're taking things easy and not trading much. It's a good time to hold lots of cash and just let the market consolidate for a bit. SPX will need to break above 1360 to break out. On the downside, initial support is between 1330 and 1340.

    Good night and HappyTrading! ™
