S&P 500 & Dow Technical Analysis – Consolidating or Ready to Roll Over?

S&P 500 & Dow Technical Analysis – Consolidating or Ready to Roll Over?

Paul Robinson, Strategist

S&P 500/Dow Highlights:

  • S&P 500 hanging out following t-line break, higher-high
  • Dow finding difficulty around April high

See what factors are driving the S&P 500 this quarter and find out how our Top Trading Opportunities for 2018 are doing on the Trading Guides page.

Last week, the S&P 500 broke out above the trend-line extending down off the record high, this week has thus far and probably will continue through the end of today, be nothing more than a quiet week of chopping sideways.

The chop sideways following a strong push off the 2016 trend-line/200-day is viewed as healthy as long as we don’t see a sudden drop back down below the recently captured downtrend line. The rally off the monthly low also took the market beyond the April high, another constructive positive.

For now, we’ll run with the notion the market will try and run higher, perhaps to the March peak just over 2800, a view which will be negated either on a failure from current levels or failed push higher resulting in a strong reversal in momentum.

Struggling right now? (Happens to the best) We’ve got a guide designed to help you – Building Confidence in Trading

Dow finding difficulty around April high

Obviously, the Dow has a similar technical structure to that of the S&P 500, but unlike the broader index it has yet to maintain above the April swing-high. A push above the weekly high at 24994 will have the 25449 swing-high next up as resistance.
