Quad Witching has provided the volatility needed to break the winning streak. SPY has seemingly found support near $115.75. In as much as I'm distrusting of that support based on very weak internals (it's easy to see an eventual move to the low $115s) -- it would be typical of recent action to ramp into the close, so I'll respect that support for now even as I'm disinclined to switch long. Oh, and I have no idea what they are talking about on CNBC, volume has been huge -- the re-balance trade may be contributing. [Add: Note that I forgot to adjust for going Ex-Dividend, but I think comments were still good. Seems that support held and Tick is attempting to repair.]
