News Breaks
February 27, 2013
11:31 EDTSPX, SPYS&P 500 tests the underside of its 10-day moving average, levels to watch
The index is trading near the highs of the session as we head to noon-hour on the east coast. This looks like a very careful technical probe of the underside of the 10-day moving average, last at 1511.56 and still resistance. It is the kind of day that can be fraught with peril for both bulls and bears. A breakout above the 10-day is just a few points away, and such a breakout would be a short-term buy signal for the bulls. Equally, the bears still have the upper hand in that resistance hasn't been touched yet, let alone broken, and thus we could see a good set up for a sell signal later in the day. Bears will tend to pile on at failed tests of resistance, much as bulls would see touches of support as buy signals. Support remains at the 1502 area. Resistance is at the 10-day. All sectors are in the green, with the Industrials, Materials, and the Consumer Discretionary providing upside leadership. The so-called "risk-off" preferred sectors, Utilities and Consumer Staples, are laggards.
