Candlestick chart analysis for the S&P 500 Index showing a shooting star candlestick and a hammer. This is a graphical representation of the index struggling to break resistance at the 1,425 resistance zone.

On a daily chart, you can see the 1,425 resistance zone in addition to the next near-term resistance level of 1,440.

A confirmed break above 1,440 would setup the S&P 500 Index for a test of major resistance at 1,470.
