S&P 500 (SPY)

S&P 500 futures are pointing to a slightly lower opening. But honestly, nothing has changed on the chart except the level at 3003 now will act as support. The index rose above that level yesterday, and it should offer a floor as the index prepares to push higher towards 3,027.

Biogen (BIIB)

Biogen is soaring by about 45% this morning after saying it will move forward with filing for the approval on its Alzheimer drug aducanumab. The stock is blowing through all sorts of resistance levels this morning with, and a large gap fill that can take the stock back to $330. It is a big move for Biogen, which has been a dead stock for some time, and it is a big win for the biotech sector.

SNAP is rising again today, and I, as noted yesterday in a premium story, the stock could rise to resistance at $15.50. If you had only signed up to read the article Bullish Bets Pile For SNAP Ahead Of Results22


Tesla (TSLA)

Tesla will report results tomorrow after the close of trading, and the stock has been moving higher since it reported delivery results. The company will need to post solid earnings and gross margins to see the stock move higher. If it can, the stock will make that move to $300 we have been talking about a couple of weeks.

Amazon (AMZN)

Amazon has been dead money since July, and the stock needs to get over $1850 before we can even talk about the stock rising any higher.
