S&P 500 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices corrected higher as expected after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A Doji candle below trend line support-turned-resistance set from late February (1619.30) now points to indecision and warns renewed selling may be ahead. Near-term support is at 1595.80, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that targeting the 38.2% level at 1577.10. Alternatively, a move above resistance aims for a recently broken upward-sloping barrier established from mid-November 2012 (1634.90).
