SPX 500 Technical Analysis: Trying to Break Monthly Uptrend

SPX 500 Technical Analysis: Trying to Break Monthly Uptrend

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

  • Support: 2077.80, 2072.90, 2062.80
  • Resistance: 2089.40, 2115.90, 2137.10
  • For more, visit our SPX 500 page

The SPX 500 is digesting losses having probed below support guiding prices higher over the past month. A breach of trend line support at 2077.80 exposes the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion at 2072.90. Alternatively, a daily close back above the 50% level at 2081.20 clears the way for a challenge of the 38.2% Fib at 2089.40.
