S&P 500: Range Finally Breaks, Now What?

S&P 500: Range Finally Breaks, Now What?

What’s inside:

  • The S&P 500 breaks bottom-side of recent range
  • Currently treading below, as long as it does then downward bias remains
  • Downside targets on follow-through are 2137/27

In yesterday’s commentary, “S&P 500: Fake-out Breakout Could Spell Trouble”, we looked at the false breakout of the historically tight trading range and subsequent drop back inside of the range as a precursor for a breakdown below the bottom of the range.

The trading day on Tuesday started out quiet. At the opening bell the S&P 500 was down a single handle, sitting in the middle of the range – nothing to get excited about. But then just a couple of hours later sellers had emerged and the market was down about 20 handles lower, well below the bottom-side of the range.

A rally in the afternoon of the US session took the S&P back into the bottom-side of the range, but has since turned lower, forging the low-end of the range as old support turned new resistance. As long as the market views the 2155/60 area this way, so shall we. We have been discussing reasons why we believed an eventual down-side resolution would take hold (See yesterday’s piece for further details.), and now price action is beginning to confirm our logic.

As long as 2155/60 stays in place as resistance, then the path of least resistance is lower with 2137 and 2127 as our short-term targets. However, should the S&P rally back into the middle of the recent range we won’t necessarily view it as a bullish event, but at the least we will likely turn neutral until further clarity.
