S&P 500 Technical Forecast

The S&P 500 bounced hard to end last week. This put in a reversal candle for the week that is seen as suggesting more upside in the days ahead. However, at this time all that is expected is a bounce as the bear market looks set to continue until we see a capitulation low. In order for this to happen we will need to see the VIX spike and fear rise sharply. Thus far we aren’t seeing much in the way of fear.

In the near-term a recovery bounce is anticipated to at take price up to the Feb low at 4114, where a very meaningful test will take shape. At this time it is viewed as a possibly a very meaningful form of resistance that could cap the bounce before another major leg lower develops.

Even if resistance ultimately holds it may get a little rough around that line, in that price may jab above and back below, perhaps on several occasions before resistance is confirmed. But a repeated struggle around 4114 would be a good sign for would-be shorts that the bounce is ending in favor of renewed weakness.

Nasdaq 100 Technical Forecast

TheNasdaq 100 is also bouncing from a lower parallel that has price in recovery mode as we head into a new week. On the top-side I will be watching for meaningful resistance to come in just over the 13k mark. Until then, there may be some bumps in the road if the recovery scenario is to work out, but dips are likely to be short-lived, if even they are fast and furious.

Dow Jones Technical Forecast

The Dow Jones is already finding itself in trouble on this bounce because it was generally stronger than the other indices so the Feb low is closer at hand. Don’t be surprised to see if get recouped if the other indices are going to continue a bit higher before testing their important winter lows.
