Downside Potential Here

SPX is at a potentially significant inflection point here, with a setup for a possible sharp retracement. SPX has broken down from a short term rising wedge and formed a possible double top. A possible hourly RSI 14 sell signal is brewing and the obvious first downside target on SPX in the event of a significant reversal here would be channel support in the 2740 area. We are looking for a sharp retracement soon and it could well start here.

If we see this retracement, which could last a couple of weeks and might go as low as a test of monthly pivot at 2681, then we’d be looking for a retest of the all time high on the next move up. SPX 60min chart:

Stan and I, and our options specialist colleague Matt Gardiner will be doing a webinar after the close on Thursday introducing Paragon Options, a new service we are introducing trading futures options. We’ll be looking at trading those, and how that differs from trading stock options. If you’d like to attend then you can register for that on our June Free Webinars page.
