US SPX 500; A sustained recovery or just a dead cat bounce?

  • 77
Equities markets have made a significant recovery in recent weeks but only to arrive at the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the recent sell off down to 2,185. In this week’s Technical Insights, Toby from Trade With Precision assesses the US SPX 500 technicals and notes the market would be predicting a “V” shaped and sustained recovery from here… however he disagrees with this sentiment. He sees the overhead resistance, coupled with the unprecedented US and global unemployment rate as a headwind too strong for the equities markets and anticipates a move back towards the lows.
