SPX S&P 500 2-Hour Chart

Here is another update of the 2-hour chart since that has been a focus of interest the last few trading days. The red lines show the matching and higher highs in price coming with negative divergence in the indicators so a couple of spankdowns are created off the tops (red arrows). The indicators remain weak and bleak printing lower lows so at least one to four candlesticks may be needed before a turnaround can be launched by the bulls which is from 2 to 8  hours of trading time. Of course the central bankers can make a dovish statement and bounce stocks at anytime they desire as is the case the last few years.

The MACD cross is bearish. The stochastics are under 50% in bear territory. Watch to see if the RSI drops under 50% which will signal further price weakness ahead. Price needs to revert back from its elevated status above the moving averages. The blue lines show a funky H&S pattern with a skinny middle head occurring within one 2-hour candlestick. To keep the math easy, the head is 2135, neckline at 2125, so target is 2115. A neck at 2123 targets 2111. Reference the SPX S/R missive previously posted where the 2108-2110 level is very strong support and would lead to trouble if it fails. A test of this landing zone is likely if price slips under 2123-2125. Lower prices are anticipated for a few hours forward unless Fed Chair Yellen or other central bankers flap their dovish wings handing out easy money to pump stocks higher. S&P futures were down -9 a couple hours ago but have recovered to down -4 with the opening bell about 90 minutes away.
