S&P in Limbo


S&P in Limbo
By Mike Paulenoff, www.MPTrader.com

With about three hours remaining in this crazy week, let's notice this morning's weakness established a secondary low in the e-Mini Dec S&P for this week at 1194.75 compared with Wednesday's low at 1180.25--and compared to the week ago yesterday (9/18) low at 1136.25. Can we call these three lows part of a near base-building effort? Yes, unless 1180.25 is violated, which will weaken the base-building scenario. To trigger initial upside confirmation of a near-term base, the e-SPZ -- a proxy for those trading the S&P 500 Depository Receipts (AMEX: SPY) -- must hurdle and sustain above 1218 and then 1225.00. For the time being, however, the index is in limbo -- along with the US Congress.
