The S&P 500 index is stuck in a 9 point price box.
1051 is resistance from October 2008.
1042 is support from the last 3 days and also the 18SMA.
We need to see 2 or more days of market closing either above or below one of these 2 points before there is any significant breakout or breakdown.
For the moment we have a setup for almost a Kicker Bullish setup but the 3rd red candle that was put in on Friday doesn’t make this a perfect pattern.
If on Monday we follow the Kicker setup, we might have a move to higher highs (above 1080).
The setup is not exactly a Kicker but it fits the bill very well. If $SPX closes below 1042 for 2 or more days then next support is 1030 which would be the defining moment of this “Bull Market”.

Look for an update by next weekend if the setup plays out.
