The S&P 500 Index appears to be setting up for an important breakout “TEST”.

Stock market bulls are cheering for a breakout, while bears are looking for a pullback off resistance.

In today’s chart, we look at the S&P 500 Index on a longer-term “weekly” basis.

As you can see, the S&P 500 has spent the majority of the past 20 years trading within a broad, rising price channel at each (1).

It is currently testing the top of this 20-year channel at (2). This area also happens to be the 261% Fibonacci price extension level of the 2007 highs and 2009 lows.

With the trend being up, this becomes a very important breakout test for the S&P 500!

Will the S&P 500 breakout? Or will bears turn prices lower? This is an important juncture for investors. Stay tuned!!
