S&P 500 Futures: Key resistances and supports

The Technical Confluences Indicator shows that the S&P 500 futures is defending the 3,289 support, which the confluence of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day, previous low four-hour and SMA50 15-minutes.

In absence of significant support levels, the US futures will directly test the 3,275/70 demand area, where the previous week high, pivot point one-week R1 and SMA10 four-hour intersect.

A failure to resist above the latter will likely expose the critical support at 3,251, the convergence of the previous year high and pivot point one-day S2.

Alternatively, the buyers could probe the 3,303 (previous day high) barrier on a break above the 3,300 level.

Further north, the hurdle awaits at $3306/08, where the previous high four-hour and pivot point one-week R2 coincide.

The next powerful resistance is aligned at 3,327, the pivot point one-month R1.
