4/10 – 3:15 p.m. New York time

SPY remains below the high of April 5, continuing its sideways movement. I have exited no positions and entered none.

4/10 – 11:50 a.m. New York time

SPY remains bound within a range, today’s high so far staying below the April 4 peak within the present sideways move. Like yesterday, it’s a wait-and-see day.

Facebook Inc.’s CEO Mark Zuckerburg testifies before Congress today about the company’s handling of user data security. FB is has the 4th largest market capitalization among the S&P 500 companies, so if his hearing produces any OMG! moments, the index on which SPY is based might get a short-term bump.

The entry analysis for my positions on SPY are here and here.
