The index has found resistance in the same area, topping out in the pre-market session at 2082.75, coming close to that level off the open, but came up shy at 2082.
On the ensuing decline, it found support ahead of the pre-market low (2068.75), only reaching 2070.75 before attempting to rebound.
Its top component has the been the biggest drag on the index, as Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) was trading lower by $1.70 at $126.10. Despite the index being in the red, seven of its top 10 components are in the green. The biggest gainer is Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC), which was trading higher by $0.25 at $56.37.
