The markets opened sharply higher on the day. Positive economic news out of China coupled with Fiscal Cliff optimism did the trick. This level hit today coincided with a major gap fill at142.78. I think this may be a near term high on the market. Many stocks have rallied significantly and are now ready to pull back. We also broke SPY 141.68 level intraday which has been is acting as strong.
SPY support or resistance levels.
SPY resistance - 141.68, 142.25 142.75 (gap-fill), 143.09, 143.55, 144.40
SPY support - 140.40 139.05, 138.50, 137.55, 136.66
