S&P 500 

Stocks have put together a few strong sessions, and despite some weakness yesterday in retail stocks, such as Macy’s, the broader market performed well. 

Jerome Powell’s talk yesterday was amusing at times, although the market didn’t respond very well at first, but managed to mount a strong come back. 

The S&P 500 continues to face technical resistance at 2,630.

Netflix is trading above $330 today at $333, after UBS upgraded the stock to buy despite lowering its price target to $400 from $410.  If the stock can manage to hold support at $330 then there is a good chance that the stock could work its way higher towards $355.

Apple’s stock has reached out resistance level at $155, and has failed two times at that price. It is obviously not a good sign and if the stock is unable to get above $155 today, then there is a good chance the stock retest the lows around $142.

Acadia (ACAD)

Acadia is now flirting with a break out at $21, and should the stock rise above that price it is likely to go on to $24. The stock has risen sharply over the past few days following the company’s presentation at the JPMorgan Healthcare Conferece.

­Activision (ATVI)

Activision Blizzard is trading lower today following news that Bungie will have the rights to publishing for Destiny. The stock is falling 7% as a result and trading at technical support around $47. Should the stock fall below $47 it is likely heading towards $45.50.
