Will The Sell-off Continue?
The stock market continued its sell-off on Friday, and it spilled over into international trading overnight, as one would expect. But futures are slightly higher today. The significant level in the S&P 500 that must hold is 2,616 otherwise a retest of the February around 2,550 is on the table. Key resistance to watch for is 2,670.
The Russell is also nearing its February low, that level comes at 1,433.

FANG stocks will continue to be a focus for most investors. Amazon has performed reasonably well during the last round of selling and firmly stayed above support at $1620. Should the stock stay above $1620, then it could very well be back on its way to $1760.

Tesla’s Elon Musk was on 60 minutes. It was a great interview, watch it if you can! It is only about 15 minutes. You learn a lot about him including his horrible childhood.
