SP500: A Pullback is in Sight

Weekly time frame:

  • SP 500 has not been able to overcome the last obstacle (November peak) prior to the May 2015 all time high
  • The week ended with a Shooting Star. A short-term top could be in place provided last week low at 2073 is breached
  • If the Shooting Star is confirmed we have three potential targets: S1 at 2040; S2 in the range 2029 (50 wma) - 2020; S3 at 1989 (20wma)
  • In my opinion if a pullback is underway odds should favor a higher low, probably at the S2

  • The scenario of limited downside and a continuation of the rally from the February low with a 3-wave up leg could result in an Ending Diagonal, which would conclude the entire advance from the 2009 low
