SP500 100724 4h Chart

SP500 tests new highs as traders keep buying tech stocks ahead of tomorrow’s inflation reports. Analysts expect that Inflation Rate declined from 3.3% in May to 3.1% in June. Core Inflation Rate is expected to remain unchanged at 3.4%. Treasury yields are moving lower today, providing additional support to SP500. It should be noted that the rally is broad, and all market segments are moving higher in today’s trading session.

The technical picture remains extremely bullish as SP500 managed to settle above the resistance at 5590 – 5600 and tests new highs. RSI is in the overbought territory, which is typical for a strong rally. However, traders should note that the risks of a pullback are increasing as SP500 is overbought.

Dow Jones has recently managed to settle above the 50 MA at 39,296. Currently, the index is trying to settle above the 39,500 level.
