USA500: A Break above 1890 Could Restart Uptrend

USA500 (S&P500), Daily

Recent U.S. reports defied the global financial panic, with retail sales through January that imply solid “real” spending growth. The Global fear of an economic downturn despite heavy commodity price declines and continued export price weakness is apparently not translating to weaker U.S. growth.

Technically, the S&P 500 (USA500) could reverse the recent global stock market sell-off providing we see a clean upward penetration of my 3rd fan line (see above chart). Resistance is spotted around the 1890.00 area. Additionally, a breakaway gap is spotted during the most recent trading day. My initial target zone is between the 50% – 61.8% (December high – January low retracement). My conclusion for the USA500 supports long positions above 1890 for targets within the 1948.00 – 2000.00 zone.
