Stocks are chugging along here, but don’t get complacent. Especially if you are an active investor.
The S&P 500 Index is up 3.8% for the month. A pretty “thankful” month for bulls.
But the stock market is short-term overbought and nearing a potential price resistance / price target area.
In today’s chart, we look at a key confluence of short-term price resistance that may bring a pullback / dip. Again, this chart is short-term and meant for active investors.

S&P 500 Index “hourly” Chart
This is an hourly bar chart. It does a pretty good job of highlighting the up-trend (lower left to upper right). Using recent trajectory along with a near-term fibonacci extension (161.8%), we can see that the 3160-3165 price area may provide some resistance. Again, just another way to look at the S&P 500 Index for active investors. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
