The Markets

Stocks closed mixed on Thursday as the reaction to earnings and the FOMC statement continues.  The S&P 500 shed a mere four basis points, remaining above a short-term rising trendline that appears on the hourly chart of the large-cap index.  Connecting the peaks of the short-term trend on the same chart reveals a rising wedge pattern, typically a bearish setup that results in a retracement of the positive move upon a break below the lower limit of the pattern.  Theory suggests that the retracement could reach as far back to where the pattern started, which is the September low, but what theory suggests and what actually happens are, of course, two different outcomes.  Watch the rising level of support, currently hovering around 2075.

Sentiment on Thursday, as gauged by the put-call ratio, ended bullish at 0.86.
