S&P 500 |The index has managed to consolidate above the psychological 3000 level following the bounce from support at 2960-65. However, further gains in the index have been curbed by the rising trendline stemming from prior record highs, thus leaving the index vulnerable to a pullback. Catalyst likely to stem from next week’s FOMC decision, particularly the Fed are less dovish than what the markets expect. The RSI on the daily time frame continues to show a bearish divergence, further adding to the view that upside momentum may be somewhat exhausted. The key support zone is situated at 2960-65, in which a break below paves the way for a 2900 test.

DJIA | The index is beginning to show signs of exhaustion with the RSI closing below 60 and hitting its lowest level in over a month. Eyes will be on the weekly close, in which a close below last week’s low (27,068) may confirm that a near-term top has been set for the index. In turn, this leaves the Dow Jones vulnerable to a move towards the 26,600-26,650 zone. As a reminder, the Fed rate decision and comments by Chair Powell will be key next week.
