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.

Strong gains for the DAX across the week, rising over 1.2% having made a break through the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement and descending trendline. Focus now turn towards the 50% Fibo, in which a closing break could see the index move towards the psychological 12000 level.
