This week, it is necessary to show all short term and long term timeframes. Based on the S&P 500 (SPX) 4 hour chart, the close last Friday recorded a TD Buy Setup @9, which makes it ripe for the SPX to attempt to resume the overall uptrend. Getting a bit more detailed, note that the 4 hour TD Buy Setup has not been perfected. This provides the opportunity for the SPX to see a lower low before reversing higher. An ideal catalyst could be the referendum in Italy. Any perceived negativity there can bring the SPX lower, then reversing at some point during the trading day. Now if the SPX decides to move lower, the level to watch will be 2164. There are a lot potential game changers at that level. 2164.51 is the 4 hour TDST Support level, and 2164.45 is the weekly bearish price flip. Furthermore, if we use some traditional technical analysis tools, 2164.32 is the 38.2% Fibonacci level.
