S&P 500 Below 4,000 Again – Time to Be Bearish?
The S&P 500 index lost 1.54% on Monday, as the broad stock market retraced most of its last week’s advances on a renewed interest rates’ uncertainty, among other factors. On Friday the index reached a local high of 4,034.02, and yesterday it went back below the 4,000 level. Stock prices have been fluctuating since November 10 rally.
This morning the S&P 500 is expected to open 0.1% higher, so we may see some more short-term uncertainty. The index went below the 4,000 level, but it continues to trade above an over month-long upward trend line, as we can see on the daily chart:
