S&P 500 Sinks But a Larger Reversal Remains Unconfirmed for Now

S&P 500 Sinks But a Larger Reversal Remains Unconfirmed for Now

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The S&P 500 turned sharply lower, erasing gains from the preceding four days, but an overall bullish chart structure has yet to be fully neutralized.

S&P 500 – Prices reversed sharply lower from resistance at 1363.90 and are now retesting the neckline of an inverse Head and Shoulders pattern at a falling trend line set from early May. The overall H&S setup remains intact for now, with a break below the trend line (now at 1328.10) needed to neutralize bullish cues. Such an outcome would initially expose the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 1305.90. Near-term resistance lines up in the 1334.40-41.90 area.
