|S&P 500 Index (not future) - StockCharts|
In the chart below, the S&P 500 Index (cash, not future) is testing the 200 day moving average resistance level (1,264.23). It closed at 1,258.47 on Tuesday. If the S&P breaks above that level, it could squeeze shorts, break through that downtrend line from July, and proceed to test the October high (1,293). But if the overall trend is down, that would mean it's just a false breakout. We shall see. Get ready for the ECB meeting on December 8, EU summit on December 8-9, and Fed (FOMC) meeting on December 13.
