|Includes: SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA), QQQ, SPY

All three indexes the DJIA (NYSEARCA:DIA), S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY), and Nasdaq Composite (QQQQ) finished flat for the day and traded in a narrow, sideways direction.  We moved the support levels on the DJIA and S&P 500 up slightly based on the recent market action (and left the resistance levels the same-see below).  For the Nasdaq support is the same and we moved the resistance level down a little (see below).  Overall, the main takeaway is there has been alot of significant activity recently with little price progress.  The prudent approach for stocks (based on the recent stock market direction) continues to be not to open new positions, take profits, and limit losses.
