S&P 500 4-hour chart

The S&P 500 has had a very choppy session so far but remains 0.30% higher on the session. Looking across the major bourses only the Dow trades lower in the US but marginally. In Europe, the FTSE and DAX also struggled today.

Looking at the chart below, the main feature is the black resistance zone. The circles on the chart show that the zone has been used many times and could be important once again today. If the price closes above the area it could be a bullish sign and the market could reach the high on the chart of 3,231.50. 

Looking at the indicators, the MACD signal lines are above the mid-point but the histogram is still in the red. A break higher in the histogram would be a good sign for the bulls. The Relative Strength Index has dipped away from the overbought zone, this gives the indicator some space to move higher if the bulls regain control of the market. 

At the moment the S&P 500 is very much sideways but a break above 3,156.22 and 3,184.50 would be a very bullish sign.
