The market opened higher today, rose within one point of the all time high, then went into a four point trading range for the rest of the day. Over the weekend we reviewed lots of charts, and updated some. You might want to take a look. We also had several discussions in the forum, and as a result added one alternate count to the monthly SPX chart. Today was obviously a quiet day ahead of Q3 GDP tomorrow. Short term support remains at the important SPX 2040 level and the 2019 pivot, with resistance at the 2070 and 2085 pivots. Short term momentum rose to slightly overbought today and remained there into the close. Best to your trading the GDP update!
