Backtesting Resistance

I posted my premarket video on my twitter before the open today and if you missed that then you can see that here. I included charts on XLE and XLF today.

On SPX the daily middle band was backtested today and was respected. As long as that remains the case on a daily close basis then last week’s low at 2405.70 should at minimum be retested soon. SPX daily chart:

Post-Patriotic, Pre-Market

I trust Slopers had a safe and enjoyable Independence Day. My family watched about seven different shows from our lofty air-conditioned perch, while I played Sousa music through a laptop. It isn’t exactly like being there, but it’s awfully close.

Looking at the markets this pre-market, the ES is doing a whole lot of nothing. I’ve tinted out what I’m hoping is a decent top, with 2412 being a key failure point.
