Near Term Outlook S&P 500
Over the near-term, since mid-February of 2011, the S&P 500 has been going nowhere, stuck in a multi-month horizontal range that is bound between a floor at 1249, and a ceiling at 1370. Following a rapid move back up toward the upper end of its range after testing its base in mid-June, S&P 500 bulls are expressing some reservations.
Short-term, we have circled capture of an old 13-point downside target of 1326 from early July, and draw your attention to a sell side setup mapped out last Friday, which currently cites a short-term downside target at 1313.
Our recent work in the US Dollar conveyed that the US currency was coiling and set to unwind . Well, unwind it did, at least over the short-term.
Trading with a respectable level of inversion to broad equities the recent upside move in the dollar added confidence to our outlook for the imminent weakness we are now experiencing in the S&P 500.
