Our Friday's neutral intraday outlook has proved accurate. The S&P 500 index continued to fluctuate within its week-long trading range. The broad stock market is likely to open much higher today following futures contract rally after an overnight gap-up opening. We can see some short-term technical overbought conditions. Therefore, intraday short position is favored. Stop-loss is at the level of 2,490, close to early August record high. Potential profit target is at 2,455 (S&P 500 index).
Intraday trade: The S&P 500 index may slightly extend its short-term advance today. However, we can see some technical overbought conditions that may lead to a downward correction. Therefore, we prefer to be out of the market again, avoiding low risk/reward ratio trades.
Intraday trade: The S&P 500 index may continue to retrace its Tuesday's move up today. Therefore, an intraday short position is favored again. Stop-loss is at the level of 2,460 or 5 points above Tuesday's daily high. Potential profit target is at 2,425, below Tuesday's daily gap up (S&P 500 index).
