The stock market going sideways

Trading at $2,872 today, we can see here very clearly The S&P 500 Index is range bound between S/R (Support and Resistance Price Levels) of $2,892 above, and $2,800 below. So nothing really is happening until it elects one of those price reversals.

S&P 500 Index breaking levels

Trend following The S&P 500 Index today, trading at $2,811 at the moment, is trading under last month’s low of $2,848 and under last week’s low of $2,825, but above a major Price Reversal of $2,799 on the Weekly as shown on the stock chart below. If it rejects this level, and then closes higher on the Weekly, that will be a long term Bullish…aka BTD, or “Buy The Dip”.

S&P 500 Index trend following a gap breakout

Trend following the S&P 500 Index this morning. It  is challenging that gap Up Breakout back on April 1st (red circle on the chart). That was the market valuation then at  $2,845, todays valuation is $2,845. And obviously the market bought that as undervalued.

So we’ll see what the market values today and this week. The all time highs, 52 week highs, the new highs, are all pretty much irrelevant at this point. Those Highs have been rejected, or, not elected. Can the market get back up there? ..of course.
