S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices are in the midst of the longest string of consecutive daily gains in seven months. Buyers are testing resistance in the 1840.20-47.90 area, marked by the 50% Fibonacci expansion and the index’s 2013 closing high. Breaking above this boundary initially targets the 61.8% level at 1864.30. Alternatively, a reversal below support in the 1805.70-20.60 area aims for a horizontal pivot level at 1773.40.
