It wasn’t the most vigorous trading session despite a 1% rally in the S&P 500. The real action came in the after-hours when it rallied another 50 or so basis points after Powells issued a statement ahead of his testimony for Congress. There was nothing new said, but still, the algo’s took the index up. It will give us a chance to find out if the market can advance much beyond 3050 or not.

Micron

Micron (NASDAQ:MU) reported better than expected results and gave better guidance, which was surprising to me. It wasn’t what I was expecting.

This stock doesn’t have the greatest history of holding post-earnings rallies. Plus, $52.75 has been a tough level for some time.
