Battle of Bulls & Bears: Key Stock Market Levels

Adam over at MarketClub recently took a look at the S&P 500 from a technical analysis perspective and has concluded that we'll continue to see choppy market action for a while. In his latest market analysis, he points out a series of lower highs, typically a sign that favors the bears. Basically, he argues that the key level to watch in the market is S&P 1,100. If the market rallies above that level, it has a strong chance of resuming the longer term uptrend we've seen over the past year or so. However, if the market continues to stall at 1,100 (as it has previously), then the bears are in control. This level becomes even more interesting when you consider it's currently right around where the market is trading and this could be a potentially pivotal point.

Additionally, he points out 1,040 as a second key level to watch in the S&P 500. This level could potentially be a double bottom as the market tested that level in late May and then again in early June. He notes that we'll get confirmation of this double-bottom (a bullish pattern) if the market rallies above that 1,100 level. So, all said and done, 1,100 is the key level to watch on the upside as it seems to hold all the technical keys. Overall though, Adam concludes that it will continue to be rough waters throughout the summer, typically a time of lighter volume as many traders/investors are on vacation.
