Breaking Range Market Update and Stock Scan April 26

Apr 26, 2016: 2:17 PM CST

We’re seeing a bullish reversal swing laboriously developing in the S&P 500.

Will it hold?  And what stocks are our big trenders today?

Let’s update our levels for the S&P 500 Index and note the big trending stocks today:

A “Rounded Reversal” style intraday price pattern is developing off the 2,075 (2,080) index target.

Right now the S&P 500 remains within our NEUTRAL ZONE between 2,075 and 2,100 as seen above.

A Symmetrical Triangle developed during today’s action with the midpoint resting just under 2,090.

Look to play a breakdown short away from 2,090 or else an impulsive breakout back toward 2,100 if above it.

Let’s see what our Breadth Chart reveals about current market strength (or weakness):

Despite the Triangle Price Pattern, we’re actually seeing somewhat bullish money flow.

Our strongest sectors are all the “Risk-On” groups while the weakest of the day are the Staples, Health Care, and Utilities (“Risk Off” groups).

It could suggest additional upside action in the bullish swing pathway seen above.

    I think there is a decent opportunity here to get into the trade, but we need to make the right entry in order to benefit, it’s great to have blogs like these with such deadly accurate analysis and updates, I always follow this especially for long term trading that’s easier due to OctaFX broker that I use, as they provide me swap free account and saves me from paying overnight charges, so pretty cool that is and really helps in trading.
