S&P500: Looking Bullish

Technicals | Mar 28 2023

Michael Gable of Fairmont Equities notes that despite the events of last week, the charts suggest Wall Street is still bullish.

By Michael Gable 

We noted last week that the fear in markets seems to be more driven by the media, and despite the Aussie market posting its seventh weekly loss in a row, it still seems as though that is the case.

When we look at the local index, it is finding the support that we anticipated last week. This week we have looked at the charts of the S&P500 Index and the Nasdaq, and although it is contrary to what most people are saying, our view is that these indices look bullish. That is, we are not seeing evidence (yet) that the market is going to roll over.

If anything, risk is to the upside and these are times to be watching very closely for stocks to buy. Once we see some upside breaks, which could be very soon, we should be able to spot some great opportunities. In the meantime, today's report has a chart on the S&P500 Index.

We last looked at the S&P 500 Index in February and noted that it seemed to be forming a bull flag.

Events since then led to further weakness in the market, but if we revisit the chart, we can see that we merely have a continuation of this same pattern.

The index hasn't capitulated, it is still forming higher lows (circled). We are also seeing it tighten up here under a clear resistance line.

Overall, the index looks like it wants to head higher. A close above 4000 would be the next buy trigger. A fall under 3800 would be a negative.
