Stocks - More Uncertainty, Is This a Bottoming Pattern?
February 28, 2023 (Investorideas.com Newswire) The S&P 500 index gained 0.31% on Monday, as it fluctuated within a consolidation following its recent declines. The market opened higher, but it retraced the advance and closed below the 4,000 level again. On Friday the daily low was at 3,943.08, but the index bounced at the end of the day. There are still fears about monetary policy tightening following a series of better-than-expected economic data releases.
The S&P 500 will likely open 0.1% higher this morning after the futures' overnight decline and a rebound. So the market will extend a consolidation along the 4,000 level. In early February the index broke below the upward trend line, as we can see on the daily chart:
Futures Contract Remains Close to 4,000
Let's take a look at the hourly chart of the S&P 500 futures contract. It's trading slightly below the 4,000 level. The resistance level is at around 4,030, marked by the recent local highs. On the other hand, the support level is at 3,950.
Stock prices will open slightly higher this morning. The market may be forming a short-term bottom following a decline from mid-February local highs. However, there have been no confirmed positive signals so far. Investors will be waiting for the important CB Consumer Confidence release at 10:00 a.m.
Here's the breakdown:
- Stock prices continue to fluctuate within a consolidation following their recent declines.
- The S&P 500 may be forming a bottom before some more meaningful upward reversal.
- In my opinion, the short-term outlook is bullish.
