Key Levels (1 to 3 weeks)

Pivot (key support): 2777

Resistances: 2875 & 2900

Next supports: 2730 & 2670

Directional Bias

Downside target/support met at 2845 on the SP 500 Index (proxy for the S&P 500 futures). In addition, downside momentum of price action has been overtreated as indicated by the extreme oversold readings seen in the daily RSI and 4-hour Stochastic oscillators. Flip to a bullish bias above 2777 key medium-term pivotal support for a mean reversion rebound to target the intermediate resistances of 2875 & 2900 within a corrective down move sequence still in motion since 25 Jul 2019 all-time high.

On the other hand, a break with a daily close below 2777 invalidates the mean reversion rebound scenario for the continuation of the down move towards 2730 and even 2670 next.
