The S&P 500 index lost 0.72% on Thursday, as it retraced some of the recent advance and a rebound to the 4,700 level. This week the market retraced almost all of its late Nov. – early Dec. decline. Last Friday the index fell to the local low of 4,495.12 and it was 5.24% below the Nov. 22 record high of 4,743.83. This morning the index is expected to open 0.7% higher following the Consumer Price Index release. The data has been as expected at +0.8% m/m.

The nearest important resistance level remains at 4,700-4,750, marked by the record high, among others. On the other hand, the support level is at around 4,610-4,630, marked by Tuesday’s daily gap up of 4,612.60-4,631.97. The S&P 500 is at its previous consolidation, as we can see on the daily chart (chart by courtesy of http://stockcharts.com):

Nasdaq 100 Bounced From the 16,400 Level

Let’s take a look at the Nasdaq 100 chart. The technology index got back to the 16,400 level on Wednesday and yesterday it retraced some of its recent advance, just like the broad stock market. However, tech stocks are relatively weaker, as the Nasdaq 100 is still well below the Nov. 22 record high of 16,764.85.

Conclusion

The S&P 500 index will likely retrace its yesterday’s decline this morning. So the broad stock market may extend a short-term consolidation following the recent rally. There have been no confirmed short-term negative signals so far and we may see an attempt at breaking above the 4,700 level following neutral CPI data release.

Here’s the breakdown:

  • The S&P 500 is expected to open higher this morning and we may see a consolidation along the 4,700 level.
  • We are still maintaining our short position from the 4,678 level.
