S&P 500 (SPY) The 189.00 area should be support.
Russell 2000 (IWM) 118.50 is the 10 DMA. Watch that level to be support. If that breaks 118.10 area should hold.
Dow (DIA) Closed just over the 10 DMA. Watch to see if that can hold.
Nasdaq (QQQ) This was the worst performing index on Friday. If 88.63 breaks, expect a test of the 50 DMA.
XLF (Financials) Has been very strong. However, it closed with a possible slingshot high on Friday. Watch to see if this confirms on Monday. If so, expect a test of the 10 DMA.
SMH (Semiconductors) Possible slingshot high on Friday. Watch to see if Friday’s low can hold.
IYT (Transportation) Resistance at 136.94. 133.60 should be support.
IBB (Biotechnology) Nasty day in IBB! This is now in an unconfirmed warning phase.
XRT (Retail) Watch 85.55 for support.
IYR (Real Estate) This found support on the upward sloping 50 DMA. Closed over the 10 DMA.
XHB (Homebuilders) Closed under the 50 DMA to put this into an unconfirmed warning phase. 32.35 should be support.
USO (US Oil Fund) Wedged between the upward sloping 50 DMA and 200 DMA. Looks good over 35.88.
