S&P 500 Rally Back to All-Time Highs Likely

Mark Newton

S&P 500 Trading Outlook (3-5 Days): Bullish

The S&P 500’s INDEXSP: .INX above 2940 will likely jumpstart a rally back to all-time highs.

We are near-term bullish here, looking to buy dips with movement up to 3025-8 likely.

The pattern and technical structure has now improved in a big way with Thursday’s breakout above 2940. 

As shown in chart below, little lies in the way technically before this reaches former highs made in late July near 3027.

It’s thought that this could be likely ahead of the Federal Reserve meeting without much needing to be resolved, purely based on improvement in structure and breadth alone.

Technology has moved back to new multi-week highs, while Financials and Discretionary and Industrials have followed suit.

Meanwhile, the defensive groups are being sold, just a time that yields have started to turn back higher. Overall, technical trends in the short run are bullish and look poised to retest/exceed this Summer’s highs before any top.
