Looking at the S&P 500 CFD, the index has been falling inside of a descending channel that began to form last week on June 23rd. The index recently used the 200-period moving average as resistance after a big bounce on June 25th. Price is expected to continue advancing towards the upper trend line before finding resistance around the 3063 level. Price would then decline back to 2995 after reaching the top of the channel and losing momentum. The index would likely continue its retreat back to 2965. If price reaches the 3063 level and manages to break through it, we could see price breakout to the upside of the upper trend line, a bullish signal that could lead to a short-term up trend. If price continues upward to break above the 3093 level we could see a big rally on the 30 minute chart.
