The S&P 500 is consolidating between 2120 and 2150 after a rounding top. Short-term consolidation (I would hesitate to call this a pennant) suggests another downward leg is likely, with a target of 2080. Respect of primary support at 2000 remains likely. Recovery above 2200 would complete a bullish rounded top (an inverted “U”) or a stronger inverted scallop pattern (resembling an inverted fishing hook) depending on the length of the right-hand leg. Twiggs Money Flow high above zero continues to indicate long-term buying pressure. Breach of primary support at 2000 is unlikely but would warn of another test of 1800.
* Target calculation: 2200 + ( 2200 – 2000 ) = 2400
