S&P 500 Index technical analysis

Correction imminent for the S&P 500 Index?

S&P 500 Index Candlestick Chart

The major, intermediate and near-term trends are all up. And you always trade in the direction of the trend. And the S&P 500 just broke resistance at 1,600.

But, after a +20% gain in an index or stock, I give increased probability to any reversal patterns. We are at that point now with the S&P 500 Index. And seasonal factors align with the probability of a correction. You judge the patterns and trade accordingly.

S&P 500 Index Daily 1-Year Chart

The chart pattern today (Monday, April 15) indicates caution but the intermediate trend is still up until there is a confirmed break below the intermediate trendline. This is near the support zone of 1530 to 1540.

There are three trends to consider for any index or stock: up, down or sideways. And there are three time frames to consider for a trend: near-term trend, intermediate trend and major trend.
