S&P 500 (SPY)

S&P 500 futures are rising this morning, but the index still faces a tremendous amount of resistance around 3,003 on the SP500 futures. If the futures can push through resistance, then it can finally make that run to the new highs. If not, then the index will continue to struggle and perhaps pullback towards 2960. We’ll see, but trying to predict a 1% move up or down these days is nearly impossible.

Boeing (BA)

BA is falling again today following Friday’s steep decline. $317.50 seems like the next significant level to watch for the stock.

Salesforce (CRM)

Salesforce is testing support at $144.50, and if that level fails, it can fall to around $138.

Illumina (ILMN)

Illumina is holding support at $268, and if the stock can get above $315, it can fill the gap up to $360.

Booking (BKNG)

Booking failed at resistance once at 2080, and if the stock can break out, it has room to push to 2180.

Roku is falling today to around $126 and drop below $122 push the stock back towards $100.
