S&P 500 Chart Update: Bull-Bear Battle At 2700

The S&P 500 has seen a fair amount of bearish days of late.

And although the damage isn’t extensive, today’s reversal lower caught my attention.

S&P 500 Chart – Bearish Pattern Or Healthy Consolidation?

Back to back heavy red bars are setting up for a test of 2700.

It is possible that the S&P 500 is tracing out a bearish head-and-shoulders top on the 1 hour chart. It is too early to complete the pattern as we still need a move down toward the neckline and then see another rally that fails to form the right shoulder. If this does complete, we could see a measured move down toward the 2,620 area.

However, until we break that neckline, it is nothing more than some sideways consolidation within the confines of the recovery.
