The S&P 500 (NYSEARCA: SPY) appears to have completed a corrective decline, one that began in September of 2018 and ended in late December.
The decline unfolded in a three-wave drop within a higher degree Elliott wave IV.
We can see that wave IV found a base at the 2318 level, from where a new impulsive recovery is unfolding.
This is known as a continuation of an uptrend, so we assume that new all-time highs will be forthcoming.
However, nothing moves in straight line. So traders need to be aware of pullbacks. Ideally, the current rise will look for a temporary limited upside near the 2813 level, where the former swing high can react as resistance.
The pullback should find solid support lower around 2600/2650.
