S&P 500 Futures Update: Short-Term Bullish Targets

Broad Stock Market Futures Outlook for May 10, 2018

Buyers held support and we are pressing higher into new resistance. Pullbacks are still likely to find buyers in the bullish environment as we stretch closer to target areas above.

Failure to hold support will be the first thing we see when weakness develops.  Mind your position size as we hit upper resistance targets.

Support levels to hold intraday are higher once more, near 2692. Holding above support will remain very important for price continuation above 2697 early. Deeper retracements are likely if we lose 2690. The bullets below represent the likely shift of trading momentum at the successful or failed retests at the levels noted.

  • Buying pressure intraday will likely strengthen with a bullish retest of 2703.75
