S&P 500/Dow Jones Technical Highlights:

  • S&P 500 is declining out of wedge, still has room to fall
  • Dow Jones reversal-day was impressive but may not last

Check out the fundamental and technical forecast for stocks as they rise towards record highs in the Q2 Equity Markets Forecast.

S&P 500 is declining out of wedge, still has room to fall

So far this week the S&P 500 has made good on declining from the rising wedge we’ve been focusing on the past couple of weeks. Yesterday’s turnabout day, though, does bring into notion the possibility of a pause in the decline at the least, possibly a rally.

However, if yesterday afternoon’s rally is not extended quickly then the risk becomes skewed towards strength being nothing more than an intra-day bounce; even a rally from here if not strong might still turn out to be nothing more than a short-lived bounce as the forces of the rising wedge are still present and downside projected targets have yet to be met.

A drop below 2836 will significantly increase the odds that the 200-day at 2775 or worse will be reached. A hold above yesterday’s low will at the least keep the market neutral if not turn it bullish.

Traders are generally short the S&P 500, find out on the IG Client Sentiment page what this could be for prices moving forward.

Will the Dow Jones and S&P 500 Price Reversals Hold?

Dow Jones reversal-day was impressive but may not last

The Dow Jones posted an impressive reversal candlestick (‘pin bar’) yesterday just above the 200-day MA. If the S&P goes on to press lower towards its own 200-day then the Dow is likely to fall much further than the 200-day MA towards the 25208 low. But just as is the case with the S&P, hold onto the low and the outlook is neutral to potentially bullish.
