Another test for S&P 500 at 200-day average

The S&P 500 is holding at the 200-day average. The near-term trend is positive and I am looking for a test near the April high of 2717. A breakout above the April high would be a positive near-term signal for the S&P 500.

S&P 500 Weekly Chart

Reference my post from February 5, 2018: S&P 500 will test support around the 40-week moving average which translates into a 10% correction. It must stop there or I will need a more dire post.
