ES/SPY Weekend Look (May 23-27)
The S&P 500 closed down 2.99% last week for the 7th consecutive time, but price did not make a lower weekly low for the first time in 7 weeks which may be significant. The S&P flushed below the previous week’s low but managed to rally 90 points on Friday. Price opened the week approximately 2.2% off the May 20th low and 18.9% off the ATH which kept the S&P above official bear market status.
To start the week the pattern remains intact as price has not closed below the May 12th low yet. The key levels to watch now are the May 20th low at 3807 and the at 4095. If price can break above 4095 a move to the top of the neutral at 4297 is possible. If the fails at 3807 next support is at the Feb 1st low at 3656. Below that level a move to the 2.24 Fib Extension/ 382 Fib Retracement is possible.
This week the market will continue to be tortured by more Fed heads speaking including Powell on Tuesday. New home sales and Crude Inventories will also be released this week. On the earning front there is a slew of Canadian banks reporting as well as some highly followed retailers such as COST, M & AEO reporting.
Sentiment is very negative, and many are calling for a deeper low. My bias remains , but we are entering very oversold territory and a fierce corrective rally could take place at any time.
