Technical Analysis

S&P 500

On the day Donald Trump left the Walter Reed Medical Center where he received treatment for COVID-19, he refused to negotiate with Democrats. The news immediately hit oil and the stock market. However, a day later, Donald Trump nevertheless changed his mind and announced his readiness to sign a bill providing the allocation of funds for relief payments to American citizens.

In the meantime, the S&P 500 is giving an upside signal in the form of an inverted head and shoulders pattern.


The weakness of the bulls is shown by the fact that the asset did not once again test the upper border of the range. Therefore, we expect the downtrend to activate.


A false breakout of the 1.56500 resistance level was a sign of an emerging bearish trend. Please note that the currency pair has broken the upward support level. We believe that the negative trend will only grow stronger.
