The SPX 500 continues to oscillate in a choppy range around the 2100 figure as prices await clear direction cues. Near-term resistance is at 2115.90, the July 31 high, with a break above that exposing the 2129.60-37.10 area (May 19 and June 22 highs). Alternatively, a move below trend line support at 2079.20 opens the door for a test of the 2063.40-67.40 zone (July 27 and August 7 lows).
