Let’s take a quick glance at the “Color Structure” of the S&P 500 on the V-Spike Reversal into Resistance and chart possible price pathways from here.
We’ll start with the V-Spike Reversal Pattern on the intraday color chart:
We’re seeing the Color Structure grid which quantifies swings in the market (and impulsive phases like the purple area).
We have a green upswing into the prior resistance price cluster near 1,980 and we’re watching this level extremely closely.
In simplest terms, the market should be traded cautiously/bearishly on a swing down against 1,980 and otherwise continuously bullish for yet another breakout and short-squeeze trigger above 1,980 (it would target 2,000 on a breakout).
The bigger picture reveals the larger trend structure:
The same swing logic applies to the Daily Chart in a persistent uptrend.
We do note the first clear “Lower High” into October and we’re on guard against a sudden reversal and formation of a “Lower High.”
A Lower Low followed by a Lower High would be two steps in a larger Trend Reversal… but we’re not there yet.
For now, we note the potential turn-down into 1,980 and if price continues to break resistance levels as its been doing, then 2,000 is the next target followed by 2,020 and beyond as the uptrend continues.
