S&P 500 Short term Trend: Bearish The S&P 500 index has been on the decline in the near term after breaking through the consolidation range of 4350 levels earlier this week. As the price fell below the 4 hour MA 5 and 13, a retest of the closest support turned resistance at 4300 levels is expected before the price retreats further. The isupport ndex zone around 4250 must hold to keep the immediate risk reduced for a return to 4350, above which we find resistance at the top of the moving averages at 4400, which should cap the gain initially.
