S&P 500 Technical Analysis for 12 February 2013 (1517)

S&P 500 Forecast for 12 February 2013 (1517)


View:  Momentum can still push this to 1523/27 region with setbacks so far contained by 1495. A breach of the latter would put 1454/59 in sight but still not negate the overall positive momentum.


The strength shown by oscillators, %B, directional indicators, and MACD point to a continuation of the previous uptrend. However, there are some potential warning signs. Directional indicators are at levels previously associated with a change in trend. Oscillators, %B and MACD have been flat and the slope of the 9 and 21 EMA is increasing at a lesser rate. As such, 1523-1527 could be reached but is likely to offer a setback to 1495.  What happens here is crucial as the market has tried about 2 to 3 times to break this level.  Failure to do so, would see a swift resumption of the uptrend. A breach would send prices back to 1454 although a successful defense here would still support the overall positive picture towards the 2007 highs.
