August 27 Trading Session
S&P 500 (SPY)
Stocks are rising again on August 27 slightly. The S&P 500 will continue to try to recover some of its losses from Friday’s steep sell-off. For now, 2,900 is the next level of resistance followed by 2935.
Johnson and Johnson (JNJ)
Johnson and Johnson is rising this morning after an Oklahoma court ruled against the company in the opioid case resulting in a $572 million verdict in damages to be paid by JNJ. JPMorgan noted that the verdict was much better than feared. $131 is resistance with the next level around $136.
Acadia may be on the rise today after Cantor raised the ACAD price target to $40 from $30. The analyst noted higher conviction on the ACAD’s upcoming data readout for the negative symptoms of Schizophrenia. There are currently no approved drugs for this indication. $27.20 has acted as support, while $31.40 is the next significant level of resistance.

Activision Blizzard is nearing a break out which could send the shares back towards $55.
Silver is rising again, and the SLV ETF is continuing to move closer to my $17.25 target. From August 12: Betting That Silver Continues To Rise
