A dip early within the week gave bulls the prospect to get lengthy for the breakout. As final week’s article concluded, “…ready with a bias, targets and essential ranges, the market ought to current alternatives.” My tweet on Wednesday hopefully helped because it identified a possible backside at 4163 (the underside got here 10 minutes later at 4166).
Subsequent week will current extra alternatives and it is once more time to organize. A wide range of technical evaluation strategies can be used to take a look at possible strikes for the S&P 500 (SPY) in a number of timeframes. I’ll then use the proof make a name for the week forward.
S&P 500 Month-to-month
The Might candle closed at 4179, which was shut sufficient to the 4166 open to be thought of a ‘doji’. June’s greater excessive has already negated its bearish potential and any reversal sample might want to time to develop. At this early juncture, this merely imply staying above the 4183 June open.
Resistance is at 4325 and the excessive of August, then the 4500 space.
It is taken a very long time to interrupt 4195-200 and it ideally now acts a flooring. The VPOC at 4130 is the following assist under.
An upside Demark exhaustion rely is on bar 6 (of 9).
S&P 500 Weekly
This weeks bar is to not be second-guessed and appears like a real break-out/vary enlargement after prolonged coiling and consolidation.
The shut at 4282 was close to sufficient to the 4290 weekly excessive to count on speedy observe above 4290 early subsequent week.
The following main targets are the 61% Fib retrace of the 2022 bear market at 4311, with the August excessive of 4325 simply above. There’s not an excessive amount of resistance above that till 4500, however I’ve my eye on 4363 as a result of measured transfer there.
4195-200 is the primary assist, then 4166 and 4098.
The upside (Demark) exhaustion rely can be on bar 4 (of 9) subsequent week.
S&P 500 Day by day
The inverse head and shoulders sample has now performed out to its goal of 4280. We are able to now concentrate on the upper timeframe targets in play.
Friday’s sturdy shut ought to result in not less than a brand new excessive over 4290 earlier than any reversal sample can kind. As talked about earlier, 4311-25 is the primary space of curiosity and worth would then want to interrupt again via 4231-41 to sign weak point.
4231-41 is assist created by Friday’s continuation hole and it’s value revisiting the 2 totally different gaps created this week as I touched on the topic in my final article.
An upside Demark exhaustion rely can be on bar 6 (of 9) on Monday. A response is predicted on bar 8 or 9 so look out for a pause / dip from Wednesday onwards.
Occasions Subsequent Week
Markets at the moment are engaged on the belief the Fed will pause in June which now has round a 75% likelihood in keeping with the CME Fedwatch device. No scheduled occasions or information subsequent week are prone to change this example and the Fed has simply began its blackout interval. CPI is the following ‘large’ launch on the 14th June, the day earlier than the FOMC assembly.
The decision of the debt ceiling disaster means the Treasury Normal Account may be elevated with new debt, doubtlessly inflicting a drain on liquidity. To be sincere, I do not know the affect or timeframe for this driver, and I doubt many do, not less than within the context of near-term worth motion. I due to this fact revert to what I do know, and the Demark exhaustion sign may have the same impact i.e. a liquidity
Possible Strikes Subsequent Week
The next excessive above this week’s 4290 excessive is probably going however ought to fade once more. Markets have just lately adopted a sample of reversing decrease on Mondays, dipping right into a mid-week backside after which rallying into a powerful weekly shut. I’ll due to this fact search for one other exhaustion hole on Monday much like the one described above. 4311-25 stays the best goal, and even when/if that is examined, the higher assist space of 4267-71 may maintain for consolidation and additional highs to 4363.
Solely a break of 4231 would dent the bullish momentum. If this occurs straight (i.e. with no transfer to 4363 first), I would not think about the highest to be in, however I would wish to re-evaluate earlier than making an attempt to get lengthy once more. This may very well be late subsequent week so it is laborious to predict how issues will line up after I’m scripting this on a Saturday afternoon. 4195-200 is the primary first rate assist on the upper timeframes.
