S&P 500 | Trendline Breach as Fed Caves

S&P 500 made the breach above the descending trendline from the record high after the Fed caved into the market. However, the 2700 level, which coincides with the 61.8% Fibo has curbed further upside for now. A breakout could see 2800 tested, although given the slight negative RSI divergence, recent upside is vulnerable to slight pullbacks.

FTSE 100 | Pivotal 7000 Level Breached

Gains in the FTSE 100 looks to have slowed after reaching the pivotal 7000 level. Previous attempts to consolidate above 7000 had been rejected, however, given the break above the descending trendline and provided there is a weekly close above 7000, momentum could be towards further upside. Topside resistance situated at 7140.

FTSE MIB | Key Resistance Holds Firm, Eyes on Pivotal Support

The FTSE MIB retraces gains following the rejection at the October 17th. Alongside this, as had been highlighted last week, the daily RSI continues to show a negative divergence, which in turn increases the scope for a more pronounced pullback with eyes back on 19270, prior to a potential test of 19000. Little signs of progress in the Italian economy after the country entered a technical recession, which may re-ignite the deficit target debate.
