Focus Chart of the Day: S&P 500

Price & Time: Indices Again Probing Key Resistance

The S&P 500 has rallied nicely from the cyclical turn window highlighted around the start of last week. With another important turn window eyed around the end of the month the charts seem to favor a continuation of this strength into that key cyclical period. Just how significant this strength will be depends on how the index reacts at the key pivot area between 2108 and 2125. These levels mark the 3rd square root relationship of the year’s low and the 127% extension of the December /early January range and have proven to be formidable resistance over the past couple of months. Traction above this zone is clearly needed to set off any sort of meaningful advance into month-end. Immediate support is eyed around 2080, but only weakness under 2040 would turn the technical picture more overtly negative.
