A break below 4,100 would force analysts to reevaluate the long-term trend that began on Oct. 12, when the S&P 500 logged its 52-week closing low of 3,577.03, according to FactSet. The CNBC Rapid Update shows that the median forecast for the U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) for Q1 is just 0.5%.

Drivers set how many miles they need to add to their range and what time they need it through the connected app, and the software can wait to charge the car until electricity rates are cheapest.

Trump attempted to delay the case in federal appeals court in December, but his request was denied.
