On the daily chart, the S&P500 (SPX) has continued to make gains after breaking 2760. The index is now approaching a major zone of resistance between 2785-2800. A break of 2800 is needed for a continuation towards 2820 and then new all time highs. Any retracement will find support 2760 and then 2740.
On the daily chart, the Nasdaq 100 (NDX) broke to new all time highs last week. The index is now trading in a potential ascending wedge and if broken could lead to a correction. A break 7100 could open the door to a move lower to support at 7000 followed by 6870. However, as long as 7100 holds, another test of high at 7228 is possible and a break should see the index push towards the Fibonacci extension at 7340.
