SPY 2 Hour

Price was rejected at overhead resistance and has come back to test the gap. A gap fill and hold of the trend line would not be the worst thing in the whole world. The uptrend would still be in tact. A move below $346.50 and below the trend line would send up yellow flags. .

SPY 30 min

$349 is gap support. A break below favors a gap fill to $346.85. 

QQQ 2 Hour

Price was rejected at the OH gap and spent the day consolidating within a wide range between $293-$297.50.  A break below $293 would favor a move to test the lower gap at 289.50

QQQ 30 Min 

Traders could get long at the bottom of the box at $293 and eye a move to the top of the box at $297.50 and possibly higher. A break of the trend line would favor a move to test the gap at $289

IWM 2 hour

While $160 is the “gotta hold” level,  holding $162 would be a lot simpler.  You never want to see price break below a trend line.

IWM 30 Min

A drop below $162 would favor a move to the pivot point at $160. As long as $160 holds, the door is open for a move to $167.50 which was the prior high.
