Friday will be a significant technical day for the S&P 500, according to one well-followed analyst.
Jeffrey Weiss, Chief Technical Analyst at Tejas Securities Group, believes that if certain technical levels in the S&P are sustained until Friday, there are three reasons it will move higher from there.
Weiss’ Three Reasons the Market Can Move Higher:
1. The trend line has remained intact since 2008
Weiss says: “Every top has been on the same trend line since November 2008 on a daily closing basis. The weekly and monthly charts both close this week – the last one of the first half of 2013. Look for the weekly chart to close above 1,580 and the monthly to close above 1,555.”
2. The long-term trend has not been infiltrated
Weiss says: “Even though we achieved a top and it’s bearish short-term, we don’t have enough evidence that the long-term trend has been infiltrated.”
3. The long-term trend is holding more than shorter-termed trends
Weiss says: “Despite near- and intermediate-term damage, the long term charts don’t show the same degree wear and tear as the shorter terms.”
