Simple SPX Planning Levels to Start the Week March 28

Mar 28, 2016: 11:26 AM CST

As we start the new week of March 28, 2016, what simple planning levels are in play for the S&P 500?

Let’s see them and develop our plan based on these levels:

All complex analysis aside, our key focal points (levels) for the week are the following:

  • 2,020:  The 200 day Simple Moving Average and Thursday price pivot low
  • 2,060:  A Midpoint Pivot (from late 2015) and prior week’s high

We can thus develop a quick and easy plan based on these levels:

  • Play WITHIN the trading range while price bounces between these price pivots
  • Get ready to trade a breakout “away from” these reference points.

An upside breakthrough beyond 2,065 sets in motion a play toward 2,100 while a downside break under 2,020 sets in motion a play quickly toward 2,000 and 1,980.

Here’s the intraday chart for a bit more clarity:

Once again our simple reference levels include the 2,060 overhead high and the 2,020 price pivot.

The sell pathway opens under 2,020 and we reference this level as a support bounce pivot point.

Incorporate this simpler analysis into your own trading strategies and adapt in real-time.

    Planning is vital in everything; if we’re not good at planning then unfortunately we will be in serious trouble and long battle. I am extremely fortunate that I trade with OctaFX and with them, it’s always special for me which is through their low spreads from 0.1 pips, high leverage up to 1.500 while there is also smooth trading platform which helps me trade nicely while this blog too is very special and helps a lot in every possible way.
