The S&P500 index (SPX) has been trading within a Channel Down ever since the January 04 2022 All Time High (ATH). Recently (May 20) it hit the Lower Low (bottom) trend-line of the Channel for the third time (Jan 24 and Feb 24 the others) and rebounded reaching the first Fibonacci extension (0.236 Fib).
Perhaps even more important than the dynamics that a rebound on the Lower Lows trend-line creates is the fact that the MACD on the 1D time-frame has just made yesterday a Bullish Cross. That is the 4th time within this pattern we see this pattern forming. All previous formation have kick-started rises (+8.90%, +7.50% and +12.00% respectively in chronological order).
As a result, a minimum of +7.50% rise would see the index hit roughly 4090 and the 0.5 Fib, while a maximum of +12.00% would get it to around 4275 and the 1D MA50 (blue trend-line). A break below the recent Lower Low though may be enough to push the price even lower to the 2.0 Fib extension around 3630.
