SP 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices are testing below resistance-turned-support at 1851.40, the 2013 high, after recoiling from resistance at 1863.60 marked by the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. A break below rising channel support at 1840.90 targets an upward-sloping trend line set 1814.40. Alternatively a reversal above 1863.60 aims for the intersection of the 38.2% level and the channel top at 1881.30.
