March 10 Midday Update and Super Stock Scan

Mar 10, 2016: 2:47 PM CST

A Triangle Breakout, a move down from resistance, and another reversal off the lows.  What else can this day throw at us?!

Let’s update our levels for the S&P 500 Index and note the big trending stocks today:

The prior two sessions developed a Symmetrical Triangle pattern and price broke free of the upper boundary (a buy signal) on the opening gap above 1,990.

The market lunged higher toward the 2,000 then 2,005 (prior high) targets at which time a reversal down from the target set in motion a bearish collapse.

Ultimately price reversed off the 1,970 higher timeframe support level on positive divergences mid-day.
