Technical Outlook (SPX):
We had our fourth day in a row of morning dips followed by afternoon buying. Four straight days with long lower shadows on the candle.
It shows that there is a heavy bid underneath this market keeping it from drifting lower.
Despite not moving much, price did manage to push slightly higher and above recent consolidation - albeit by a half point.
Due to the recent consolidation we have plenty of overhead room for this market to run before hitting the upper channel line.
