Profit taking after SPY reached the all time high of 227.75 entering into 2017.  A healthy retracement is needed for SPY to move higher. Take note that the bullish between Nov to April seasonal cycle is going to start.

  • Immediate resistance – 227.75
  • Immediate support: about 219-220. (have to turn to support for SPY to move higher)
  • Resistance turned support zone: 211-213.
  • 200D SMA support (trending up): about 213.5




VIX continues to stay within the complacent zone at 14.0. No fear entering into 2017.

XLE (SPDR Energy Sector ETF)

XLE is currently retracing after hitting the recent high of 78.34. If XLE can find the support at 74.87 or 71.84, the bull has strength to move XLE higher.
