ProShares Ultra S&P500 (NYSE:SSO) is a fund that seeks daily investment results that correspond to twice the daily performance of the S&P 500 Index. The S&P 500 Index is a measure of large-cap U.S. stock market performance, which includes 500 United States operating companies and real estate investment trusts selected by the S&P U.S. Index Committee through a non-mechanical process that factors criteria, such as liquidity, price, market capitalization and financial viability.
ProShares Ultra S&P500's stock range is defined by its calculated support defined at $53.38 and by the resistance level at $62.26; the stock is clearly over-extended from support, making it harder for participants to establish fresh longs.
Traders don't have a clear entry point for ProShares Ultra S&P500. However, as the stock pulls back towards $53.38 it will definitely provide a reference point to establish a trade.
