S&P 500 edges below 1500, levels to watch

The index at mid-session is down on the day by a fraction, slipping beneath 1500 by less than a point. That small decline is masking what is a weak day when looking at sectors. Apple (AAPL) has helped pull Technology into the green, and it is the sole sector that is not weaker. Materials, Consumer Discretionary, Energy, and the Financials are the leaders on the downside. Next support is at 1485.98. Resistance is at 1503.23, the high of the session.
