S&P 500 Support And Resistance Levels

Support and resistance levels for SPX for this week are shown above.  Two important things are happening at the same time this week:

  1. Companies start to report their Q1 earnings and more importantly their outlook and forecasts for the rest of the year.

  2. Wars in the Middle East and Ukraine could escalate significantly and turn from isolated regional conflicts into more international conflicts with direct involvement of the West.  That would send Oil to $150 to $200 a barrel over night and crash equity markets across the globe.  What indices do between now and November will be very telling as far as who would win the election.  A multi-month significant selling (greater than 15%) would signal Trump as the next POTUS, otherwise it would be Biden. 

My Plan

I'm 95% in cash and collecting around 5% in interest.  For now I have no plan to open any new long or short positions.
