Pre-open futures activity indicates strong open.

Today’s resistance starts at DJIA 17,873 (S&P 500: 2,076; Nasdaq Comp.: 4.926)

No room for a rally failure here.


  • The Fed.  This has been around forever, but at some point the Street will decide the rise in interest rates is imminent and take stocks down to a comfort level after which odds favor a big rally.
  • A sudden weakening in the economy (alternating good and so-so numbers likely to continue.
  • Unexpected international development (Russian invasion Ukraine).


Strength today can lock in a consolidation pattern that started in early February between DJIA 17,600 and 18,200 (S&P 500: 2,040 and 2,115).

Russell 2000 marches to a different drumbeat and is in a solid uptrend suggesting the Street is looking for bigger gains in small stocks.

Note: I discontinued my daily – before – open publishing of Investor’s first read on November 5, 2014, after 6 years (1.600 posts).  Future publishing will be on a less frequent basis and not always before the market opens. In the interim, I will publish as I see necessary as I craft a new format.
