S&P500 Technical Analysis: US Stocks undecided where to go next as 2,500.00 resistance caps advances

S&P500 daily chart

  • The S&P500 is having a deep pullback below the 50, 100 and 200-period simple moving averages (SMAs). 

S&P500 4-hour chart

  • Bulls are having a small Christmas rally since December 24, 2018 but there is little bullish follow-through.
  • The market needs to reclaim the 50 SMA for further gains or else big bears might come back. 

S&P500 30-minute chart

  • The S&P500 is in a tight range.
  • Bulls will need to overcome the 2,500.00 and 2,540.00 resistances in order to extend gains towards 2,570.00 resistance.
  • On the flip side, bears would need a break below the 2,450.00 level to extend losses.
