The SPY closing price was within .37 Wednesday to Friday last week. The lack of price movement could be deceiving but it was actually constructive. We continue to hover near the top of the Great Trading Range of 2015 and the weekly chart gave us a Bullish U-turn.
If we can hold the 210 level this morning or Fridays low of $210.16 we should see buyers step back in.

SPY daily 20 ema and 50 sma have zero slope. The only piece of price action in the SPY you can hang a hat on is the weekly reversal higher. Very little edge here to trade off.

Greek stock market crashes 20% on reopening
The Greek stock market crashed more than 20% Monday as it reopened for the first time in five weeks.
The benchmark index in Athens opened nearly 23% lower, with banking stocks among the biggest losers. The country’s four biggest lenders — Piraeus (), Alpha Bank ( ), the National Bank of Greece ( ) and Eurobank were all down 30%.
Greece’s financial crisis forced the authorities to suspend all trading at the end of June to prevent a meltdown. Capital controls were introduced, including the closure of banks and financial markets. ATM withdrawals were limited to 60 euros ($66) per day.
The banks reopened on July 20, after Europe agreed in principle to a new bailout, but withdrawals remain limited to 420 euros ($455) a week.
Greek banks are in a dire state, relying on emergency cash from the European Central Bank to stay afloat. Greece’s new $96 billion bailout plan includes 25 billion euros ($26.7 billion) to recapitalize the banks.
But even with the bailout, investors are bracing themselves for huge losses as they may have to contribute to the rescue of the banks.
