Current Options Positions

Finally, here is a screenshot of the 60 minute Chart of the SPY with a few targets.  $212.30 is the ultimate long target for the SPY by the year's end.  We also have a shorter target of 211.18 but the SPY must clear this current area of Resistance at the 210.00 area.  Major support is at the 208.25 which has to hold for this current 60 minute uptrend to continue...
