SPX went to the resistance trendline that I was looking at in my last post and we have seen a 2%+ retracement from there so far.
On the daily chart the RSI 5 has reached the 30 level and the close yesterday delivered a clear break below the first big support level at the daily middle band. If that break below the daily middle band is going to confirm today, then SPX needs a close today at or below the SPX daily middle band, currently in the 4325 area.
I was doing an intraday webinar at theartofchart.net on Tuesday after the first leg down on this move and was looking at the obvious rally target at resistance in the 4445 ES area, and on a failure the obvious next target in the 4350 area. With that rally high yesterday at 4449 and the overnight low last night at 4347 I was pretty pleased with that call. If you’d like to see that video it is here.(more…)
The small caps (as represented by the ETF symbol IWM, below) has been range-bound literally all year long.

SPX has made new all time highs as expected and has gone to the resistance level I was talking about in my post a week ago. In the meantime though that trendline has risen and looks to be in the 4465-70 area now. There is no need to test that trendline, but it is strong trendline resistance if reached.
