It was another volatile week. Stocks tumbled during the first 3 days of trading, hitting an intraday low of 1820.66 on Wednesday before bouncing back. But, by Friday's close, SPX was back up to test 1890!
Things once again went according to my weekly Market Forecast. Last weekend, I wrote,
" Financials will be very important, especially their earnings. Biotechs could see more selling to catch up to the broader market. Below 1900, SPX has support at 1880. Nasdaq has support at 4240."
On Monday, the market fought to keep above 1880, but, failed. On Tuesday, buyers tried again to keep that support. But, earnings from WFC and JPM were not good enough. On Wednesday, stocks experienced a bit of "free falling", dropping nearly 50 points to 1820 before bouncing! On Friday, MS's report was better and stocks rebounded, with both SPX and Nasdaq closing above their respective support levels.
