The S&P 500 holds above the 200-day average at 3021 and the break above the short-term 13-day exponential average reasserts a near-term upward bias in the broader high-level consolidation range with next resistance awaiting at 3115, per Credit Suisse.

Key quotes

“S&P 500 remains above key support from its 200-day average and the break back above its short-term 13-day average yesterday is seen reinforcing the view the market has settled in a high-level consolidation range.”

“Support is seen at 3085/81 initially, then 3067 and whilst above here the immediate risk is seen higher in the range with next resistance seen at its recent price gap, starting at 3115 and stretching up to 3127/31. This latter area is seen as the barrier to a retest of the highs past two weeks at 3153/56.” 

“Below 3067 can see a move back lower in the range with support seen next at 3050/48. This is seen as the trigger to a retest of the 200-day average, currently seen at 3022.”
