  • EUR/USD stalled its recovery near the 20-day moving average on Tuesday

Focus Chart of the Day: S&P 500

Price & Time: Waiting On A Catalyst To Break Away From Recent Ranges

The S&P 500 remains choppy. As noted last week we are looking for a break of the year’s opening range to set off the next real directional move in the index. Interestingly the index got to within about 3 handles of the yearly opening range low on Monday before reversing sharply ahead of the widely followed 200-day moving average. It can be argued that the price action over the past few weeks is taking more the shape of a bullish consolidation instead of a top, but a move through 2067 is needed to confirm this notion and set the stage for a run north of 2100. Any weakness under the 200-day moving average (currently around 1980) would turn the technical picture very negative.
