SPX S&P 500 30-Minute Chart; 8/34 MA Cross; Sideways Symmetrical Triangle

The SPX 30-minute chart has been interesting to watch lately. The bulls create a positive 8/34 MA cross so the stock market should be bullish for the hours ahead. However, the SPX, 8 MA and 34 MA are all at the same confluence at 2261-2263; call it 2263. Price is at the apex of a sideways symmetrical triangle and has to make an up or down decision.

If price drops out of the triangle the downside target zone would be 2213-2233. If price breaks out to the upside, the 2293-2343 zone would be targeted. Today is an important and pivotal day. S&P futures are up 5 points with the opening bell less than one-half hour away. The bears created the spankdown off the top with the rising wedge, neggie d (red lines) and overbot conditions, however, bears do not have any gusto with volatility so low. The VIX has an 11-handle. The pivot from SPX 2263 today is very influential to the overall path of the stock market ahead. Let it play out a while today since the initial move may not be the true path forward. This information is for educational and entertainment purposes only.
