S&P continues to rise impulsively with small corrections along the way. A minor pull back towards 1623 was not enough to scare bulls last Friday. continued to support the trend and bears for once again were not strong enough to break below support levels. Trend remains up, with our wallets saying long, but our brain short. In the chart below we show the important short term and intermediate term support levels to look for.

In a previous post, we mentioned the bullish pattern of a cup with handle that has now extended as it was supposed to, and we think it is time to look for a short term correction with first target the 1600-05 area. The recent decline from 1635.01 to 1623.71 does not look . This increases the chances of a new high towards 1640. Long positions would better be covered if Friday’s low is taken out. Prices below that level could enable a short term correction towards 1600. Nevertheless, even if this happens would need to show more evidence for an intermediate term trend change.

DOW also remains in a bullish trend and everyone’s question is how long will this last. Dow has made a 3 wave decline from 15144, which increases the chances that this decline was corrective and a new high should be expected this week. As shown in the chart below, 15030 should be respected if broken. A break below that level could start a bigger downward correction towards 14700.
