    There is still a divergence between the FTSE100 and the S&P 500, the FTSE is rallying while the S&P is going down. This divergence cannot last, either the FTSE will decline to catch up with the S&P or the S&P will rally #FTSE $SPX

  • From truth_tesla:

    @garyblack00 @MrRobRobson “Merger activity within the S&P 500 (SPX) has historically been the biggest reason companies leave the index, and could provide an opening for a company like Tesla, said two sources familiar with how the committee has made decisions.”

The S&P 500 Appears To Be in a Short-Term Rectangle

Moreover, the stock is trading above both its 20 and 50 day MA (respectively at $217.43 and $188.58)….We are looking at the final target of $100.00 with a stop-loss set at $120.00.   Additionally last week, Tesla (TSLA), the electric-vehicle maker, had the most publications on the US stock market on the topic of price gain, even though last week the Co dropped 10.9%….We are looking at the final target of $244.00 with a stop-loss set at $437.00.Looking at the S&P 500 CFD on a 30 minute chart, the index appears to be trading within a short-term sideways trend, also known as a rectangle, that began to form last week….If price breaks out thorough the lower boundary of the rectangle at 3310.00, price could drop further to its second support level of 3280.00, which would be a bearish signal….Regardless of which way price breaks out, it will likely continue in that direction afterwards.
