Stock Market and Commodities Commentary For Monday Evening No. 8th

The S&P 500 index posted an inside day with a lower close on Monday as it consolidated some of this fall's rally. The high range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Tuesday. Stochastics and the RSI are overbought but remain neutral to bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are possible near term. If December extends the rally off August's low, the 62% retracement level of the 2007-2009 decline crossing at 1234.75 is the next upside target. Closes below the 20 day moving average crossing at 1184.83 are needed to confirm that a short term top has been posted. First resistance is last Friday's high crossing at 1224.20. Second resistance is the 62% retracement level of the 2007-2009 decline crossing at 1234.75. First support is the 10 day moving average crossing at 1195.37. Second support is the 20 day moving average crossing at 1184.84.
