End of Day Update:
Stocks slipped under Tuesday’s lows in early trade, but bounced off of 1,983 and never looked back. The noteworthy thing is we broke support, but no one sold. That tells us most of the people who wanted to sell have already sold. Owners that watched the early morning weakness, shrugged it off and we bounced on the resulting tight supply. This most likely means we are headed back to the upper end of the recent trading range near 2,010. While not a large move higher, it shows us the market is not poised to breakdown.
