Technical Pulse – SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust April 29, 2021 182

SPDR S&P 500 Trust (US: SPY) has been trending up for a year and its long term technicals show further upside. We expect a slight correction this week before resumption of the rally:   


  1. Price is trending above all Ichimoku indicators as well as both the primary and secondary uptrend lines. This signals a continuing uptrend.
  2. The resistance level has been tested four times in recent price action, indicating a weakening resistance. However, a potential short term reversal is likely due to the appearance of Doji candles and lower volumes below the 10-period moving average the past 4 days signalling slowing price momentum.
  3. We expect prices to rise to the 161.8% and 200.00% expansion levels of US$371.94-398.01.
  4. We will likely see a correction to the 23.8% and 38.2% Fibonacci retracement levels before seeing a rebound to the target prices.


*Expected timeline of the trade is 10 weeks from the date of report issuance.
