S&P 500, FTSE 100 Analysis and News

S&P 500 | Potential Top

The inability for the S&P 500 to consolidate above the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement raises the likelihood that the index may have topped out. Alongside this with the index below 2888 this adds to the bearish momentum. Eyes look for support at 2790 opens the door for a move towards 2728.
