S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices moved lower as expected, completing a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. Sellers narrowly cleared support at 1675.80, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, to expose the 50% level at 1668.70. This barrier is reinforced by a rising trend line set from November 2012, with a break downward targeting the 61.8% Fib at 1661.50. A reversal back above 1675.80 eyes the 23.6% expansion at 1684.60.

A break higher targets a falling channel top at 105.62, followed by the underside of a rising trend line set from mid-April (106.94). Alternatively, a push through support aims for the 100.00 figure.
