S&P 500 Index candlestick chart analysis

Bullish Engulfing Patterns: Size Counts

Three-year candlestick chart analysis for the S&P 500 Index based on the weekly chart and showing bullish engulfing candlestick patterns

S&P 500 Index Three-Year Weekly Candlestick Chart

There is a high probability that the  S&P 500 Index will test major resistance of 1,370 within the next two weeks. Using the 2% rule, a convincing close of 1,400 for two consecutive days would set-up the index for an upside target of 1,470.

A failed low-volume test of resistance would see the S&P 500 index move into a trading range of  1,350-1,250. And then we will be back to monitoring the major support level of 1,250.
