Range Day Market Update and Stock Scan March 2

Mar 2, 2016: 2:25 PM CST

After yesterday’s stellar Trend Day higher, today’s session is a more calm, “range day” type session.

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

A tiny “Bear Trap” under 1,940 set in motion yesterday’s “short-squeeze” and breakout T3 Trend Day.

We typically expect consolidations or range days to develop AFTER such powerful Trend Day sessions.

Right now, that keeps us neutral between 1,980 and 1,970 as highlighted above.
