Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015 Apr 09, 2015 - 10:37 AM GMT

By: Harry_Boxer


The stock market indices had a very volatile, topsy-turvy day, unable to take out support or resistance, but had some violent swings in between on FOMC statement today.

The day started out with a pop to the upside, they then pulled back, the S&P 500 making lower lows, but the Nasdaq 100 refusing to, and then they popped. The Nasdaq 100 made nominal new highs, but the S&P 500 failed to confirm as well, and then they rolled over. The FOMC created a lot of volatility after first spiking down, and then exploding to the upside, making new highs for the day on the Nasdaq 100, but the S&P 500 failed to do so, and they pulled back. At the end of the day, they bounced to firm it up a little bit.

Net on the day, the Dow was up 27.09 at 17,902.51, 74 points off the high. The S&P 500 was up 5.57 at 2081.90, 5 points off its. The Nasdaq 100 was up 31.88 at 4375.96, 7 points off its high.

To the downside, there were no stocks down more than a point.

Checking the percent-gain leaderboard, Chinese stocks were very strong today. All of the percent-gainers today, are Chinese stocks. Low-priced AirMedia Group Inc.

Stepping back and reviewing the hourly chart patterns, the indices were up, they were down, they were up, and they were back down again after spiking post-FOMC meeting. They pulled back and closed strong. It was a very volatile, consolidation day. Both support and resistance held. The jury is still out on what direction they are going to take from here.
