The S&P 500 corrected just over 4% from the early-November highs before turning higher last week. The S&P has next upside targets at 1243 with the 20-day exponential moving average (EMA) at 1200 and then stronger support at 1170. The Advance/Decline (A/D) line has moved through its downtrend, consistent with a resumption of the uptrend. Key support for the A/D line lies at the November 16 lows. The Diamonds Trust (DIA), which is the ETF that tracks the Dow Jones Industrial Average, came close to the starc+ band last week with first support at $112-$112.50 and upside targets at $116.30.

Other starc band turning points are circled. To learn more about trading with starc bands, see this recent Trading Lesson.
