S&P 500 | Topside Resistance Holds for Now

A relatively uninspiring week for the S&P 500, holding a tight range. Topside resistance at 2800 continues to hold for now as the S&P 500 fails to consolidate above, which in turn suggests that the move to the upside is somewhat exhausted. Near-term support for the index is situated at 2730-40.
