COMPLETELY unrelated remark by Tim – – I never thought I’d be able to say this, but sales of my new book this weekend exceeded the worldwide gross of Kevin Spacey’s new movie.
That was an unsatisfyingly fast low last week with none of the usual bottoming signals, but it was a higher low against the early August low, and the break under the daily middle band on Wednesday was firmly rejected on Thursday and confirmed on Friday, with a decent quality bull flag channel on ES breaking up on Friday, so that flag has a minimum target at a retest of the previous high at 2863.43 SPX, and that puts SPX within easy striking distance of the all time high at 2872.87.
Main support on SPX is at the daily middle band now at 2835, supported by the 50 hour MA now at 2837, and the new ES weekly pivot at 2837.

Apart from the possible rising wedge resistance on ES that I look at in the video, the possible rising wedge resistance now at 2879 SPX, and possible channel resistance would now by slightly over 2900.
We are looking for a possible backtest of the 2780 area after the next high, leaning towards a 2880 area target for that. We are looking for a more significant high in September/October that should respect main trendline resistance now in the 2950-70 area.
