The S&P 500 Index surged higher on Wednesday following the FOMC. A break above 4714 is needed to end thoughts of further short-term consolidation to open up a move to 4744/50 next, analysts at Credit Suisse report.
A break above 4750 would open up 4838
“The S&P 500 is now testing near-term resistance at the highs from late last week/Monday at 4713/14. Above would end thoughts of a consolidation period for a retest of 4744/50, reinforced by the quick turn back higher in daily MACD momentum, which now seems to be in more sustainably bullish territory.”
“Whilst the key 4744/50 resistance area should clearly be respected again, we look for an eventual sustained break higher in due course to clear the way for a move to 4780/82, ahead of the psychological 4800 barrier.”
“Support stays at 4607, then the price gap from last week, which stretches down to 4592/88. This should continue to provide a good floor, however a break would suggest a slightly deeper turn lower towards 4556/54, which is the 63-day average and 2020/21 uptrend. We would have a high level of confidence in finding a floor here if reached.”
