S&P500 Market Analysis: The S&P500 index futures have been moving up week after week, for the last 10 weeks, which is one of the longest patch of green weeks with gains, without a red week. Traders should watch out for strong resistance at 2580 level. It will not be easy to cross. 2500 is a large long term target for this market, so reversal to 2500 is imminent or just a matter of time. We may do some more long trades while the trend us up, but we should not forget that 2500 can come any day, any week – it is a very real target for this market, and 2500 needs to be tested several times before a sustainable upmove above 2600 can happen.
S&P500 Support Levels: The two key support levels for the S&P500 futures are: 2500 and 2400, which will be useful to absorb minor sell-offs, and 2100 is a strong support that can defend against major sell offs. The long term support for this market is still at 1600, and that is not changing anytime soon. The zone between 1600 and 2100 should good for buying and holding for big gains. Continue reading

The futures have moved well today. They showed strength despite intraday weakness. I saw the futures at 2553 in the morning, and was thinking that a close below 2550 will be negative, and a close above 2556 will be positive. The last several days of small narrow range days have set the stage for big move now. As stated yesterday, the probability of upmove is higher because the futures have been holding up above 2550. However, for any reason, if they go below 2550, then fresh selling can rapidly take the futures down to 2530-2535. Continue reading

The S&P500 Emini Futures are currently at 2463. The futures have been testing various support levels like 2410-2420 to 2440-2450 over the last 2 months, and they are preparing for a fresh attempt to cross 2480. Previous attempt failed and the futures fell nearly 70 points from 2488 till 2420. So the futures are taking their time in testing all support levels in order to launch a fresh attempt to cross 2480 and go towards 2500.
There is a solid resistance/ selling pressure at 2480-2483 level, and it will need a strong push to cross it. There can be no room for selling pressure around 2483 otherwise 30-40 points will be loss rapidly, and all the effort in creating longs will be wasted again. Such an effort may happen in the next 1-2 weeks.
