Major Market Ranges For Week of May 17: Dow, S&P on Technical Support
05/15/2020 9:36 am EST
Both the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Averages are near primary support levels in a coming sideways week of trading with mixed signals testing both directions.
Market internals show strength in the S&P 500 up to 2860 for the next several days.
Last week’s trade ideas to long the euro and sell crude oil preceded the euro’s moderately-higher highs, while crude went sideways and barely priced itself over the May 7 sell-signal candlestick Thursday, busting or delaying the trade. I consider $21.50, $20.50 per barrel unfulfilled/delayed targets. My S&P assessment last week occurred as anticipated. Seven of 10 projected weekly ranges printed as of Thursday afternoon with other ranges extremely close.

E-mini S&P 500
High Range 2929-2907; Low Range 2844-2824
