Review: The S&P 500 has been moving in an upward trend for years as a look at the weekly chart shows. At the end of November, the important long-term Fibonacci fan was broken up at 3,640 points, generating a long-term strength signal. Downward corrections then ended directly in the area of this Fibonacci fan. The day before, the S&P 500 started trading with a strong gap-up and rose to 3,740 points at the daily high. This marked a new all-time high in the S&P 500 and underscored the strength of the index. After the gap-up from the previous day, the S&P 500 now also moves in thin air. Gaps are usually closed again. The gap in the price on the bottom could serve as an orientation marker for the bears.
Outlook: The upward trend in the S&P 500 is clearly intact, the bulls could now approach the 3,800 point mark after the price increase from the previous day.
The long scenarios: The S&P 500 shows further strength as long as the 10-EMA is no longer undercut at currently 3,700 points. In the past, downward corrections have largely ended at or slightly below the 10-EMA. A renewed price increase above the 10 EMA usually marked the beginning of a new upward wave in the S&P 500. The next target for the bulls is now 3,750 points, above which a price increase to the level of 3,800 points would be expected.
The short scenarios: The S&P 500 turns down again and takes a direct course to the lower opening price gap from the previous day at 3,703 points. The 10 EMA is only slightly lower here. If the bears manage a sustained slide below the 10-EMA, this would be a clear short-term signal of weakness. The next starting point would then be the support of 3,650 points. If it goes deeper, the 50 EMA could be increased by 3,590 points.
