We have been calling for the S&P 500 to rise all this all year, and to this point, we have not been disappointed.   It is worth mentioning that the Russell 2000 has surged by nearly 8 percent over the past 30-days. Despite the move, it is still underperforming the S&P 500, up by only 9.5 percent vs. the 12 percent.

S&P 500 Breakout

The S&P 500 has been locked in a consolidation phase since September 11, in a trading range of roughly 2495 to 2507, a mere 12 points. In the chart below, one can see the index broke above the top of the range around at 2 pm. Despite, the surge the index managed to close off the highs of the day. A strong start to tomorrow morning’s trading is all the market will need to kick-off the next leg higher, on towards 2,600.

Tesla

Shares of Tesla, also appear to be bottoming out, around the $342 level.  The 1-minute chart shows how the stock has been able to hold support on two separate trading days. If this should be the case, it is likely shares can rise.

Looking at Tesla from a longer viewpoint shows that if the stock does rise, it is likely to return into the ascending triangle. If the trading pattern stays in place, it likely sets up a year-end run for the stock, targeting $400.
