SPY Daily Candle – Chart by thinkorswim

The S&P 500 is holding well above all local and long-term support levels.

Remember this … markets don’t move in straight lines.

Your latest readout…


A few former meme stocks report earnings today.

  • Express (EXPR) reports premarket
  • GameStop (GME) reports after the close

Both stocks are well off their meme-mania highs. But you never know what might happen in an earnings call.

We’ll be watching the market’s reaction.
