U.S stock futures are higher to start the week as traders await potential stimulus from the world’s central banks. The boost to global growth would be welcomed as the U.S-China trade war continues to be a drag on markets.
The S&P 500 was down marginally on Friday and finished the week at 2978.71, and the index is now in an excellent position to potentially move through resistance at 2895.86. The RSI index is currently at 58.33 which should support a potential, new up move this week. We feel some sideways trading is needed before new buyers come into the market, and we will be watching the volume closely for signs of strength.
We are currently long term bullish and short term bullish.
