SPX: SEE CHART GET CHAIN FIND STRATEGIES
U.S. equity indexes closed mixed yesterday after a sharp mid-session commodity selloff that seemed unrelated to any material news.

The S&P 500 ended lower by 4.58 points, or 0.31 percent, at 1461.19. The Russell 2000 saw similar profit-taking as it fell 5.80 points, or 0.67 percent, to finish at 858.90.

The Nasdaq 100 added 1.21 points, or 0.04 percent, to 2856.44. The index got a boost from heavily weighted Apple, which consolidated under the $700 level during the regular session and broke through that mark in after-hours trading.

S&P 500
Resistance is now 1462.35, followed by 1464, 1466, and 1470.
Support is now 1460.03, followed by 1458.22, 1457.55 (yesterday's low), and 1452.50.
