SP500 Posts Bullish Pin Bar 11.12.2018

Yesterday’s session started with another selling pressure, but bulls managed to save the day and push the price sharply higher as the index rose around 40 points from daily lows to close slightly higher on the day. It was consolidating on Tuesday and was down briefly, trading at around 2,635 USD during the London session.

Monday’s daily candle looks like a big bullish pin bar, which is a reversal pattern. This candle could suggest that bears lost control of the market and retreated, which could mean further bullish behaviour is likely over the next few days, if this pattern is confirmed. The price needs to rise above 2,650 USD to confirm this candle.

The next target could be at 2,650 USD and then probably at 2,675 USD.

On the other hand, should the bullish breakout fail to materialise, the support now stands at around 2,625 USD and if not held, the price could decline back to 2,608 USD, where October lows are seen.
