The SPX closed slightly lower for the week in a choppy holiday shortened start to July and overall, an inside week candle for the major index while seeing a Thursday bounce fill the gap of the island formation and then close weak on lows Friday even with breadth finishing the day positive. SPX is just under its 8 EMA support while stronger support is at the 21 EMA just below at 4365 and a likely bounce point early this week if 4400 is breached. SPX still has a window of seasonal strength into the mid-July timeframe and options expiration week nearing so seeing a dip this week to the 21 day would present an interesting dip buy opportunity as long as 4350 holds on a closing basis then the next upside resistance would target 4460 and then 4500 the larger level of open interest and then the 78.6% fib retracement at 4550 of the entire bear market decline. MACD is starting to lose momentum and cross lower, but RSI is still at 60.
