The S&P has remained inside of quality rising channel (1) since the 2009 lows. The top of the channel was touched back in late 2014, where it then embarked on sideways to downtrend until it testing the bottom of the rising channel in 2016.
The strong rally since testing the bottom of the channel in 2016, now has it testing the top of the channel at (2).
This could be a dangerous channel resistance test for the bulls if selling would start, especially as the number of assets invested in the 2X long S&P ETF is near record highs!
