We would like to give an assessment of the future price development of the S&P 500 index futures using the daily, weekly and monthly charts.

S&P 500 Daily Chart

Resistance Levels: 4 238.25 (All time high)
Support: Levels 3 983 | 3 862 | 3 753

Beginning from the October low at 3 225, the S&P 500 index futures is moving in an established uptrend. After reaching a new all-time high, we expect the uptrend to continue as long as the nearby support areas can be defended. On the flip side, prices below the March high would change the chart to a neutral expectation with possible sideways movement.

Prices moving within the previous candle

S&P 500 is trading near 4 150 points. The uptrend on the weekly chart is intact and the market could receive support on march high.

S&P 500 Weekly Chart

Resistance Levels: 4 238.25 (All time high)
Support Levels: 3 983 | 3 862 | 3 753

The weekly chart looks positive. More upside potential with a continuation of the long term uptrend has a high probability. Only a drop below the September high at 3 587 could turn the positive weekly chart picture to neutral. Prices below the February 2020 high could turn the positive outlook of the weekly chart to negative.

May reaches new record high

S&P 500 is trading above the April high and has climbed to new record high levels. We are looking at an established uptrend.

S&P 500 Monthly Chart

 A continuation of the uptrend in the monthly chart has the highest probability and in the longer perspective more price advance is possible. Only a drop below the February 2020 high at 3 397.50 could turn the positive monthly chart picture to neutral.

Resistance Levels: 4 238.25 (All time high)
Support Levels: 3 983 | 3 862 | 3 587

The bigger picture 

In the quarterly chart showing the price action from 2012 to the current year 2021, we can see the long term uptrend. S&P 500 has reached a new all time high in May. The market is trading above the major support of the February 2020 high which is located at 3397.50 points and also above the September high.

S&P 500 Quarterly Chart

Resistance Levels: 4 238.25 (All time high)
Support Levels: 3 983 | 3 587 | 3 397

We expect S&P 500 to continue the long term uptrend. The quarterly chart is looking positive.

Very important is the February high at 3 397.50 which is key support. As long as the market is trading above this level, the outlook and bigger picture remains positive. Prices below 3 397.5 would worsen the chart picture and turn the bullish outlook to neutral or negative.

S&P 500 Historical Chart and Long Term Outlook

In the yearly chart of the S&P 500 Index, which shows price history from 1910 until 2021, we can see the long term uptrend.

The price bar of 2020 is a so called outside bar. In this historical chart, the 20 years simple moving average (20 SMA) is also moving upwards. In the past, the yearly 20 SMA was last tested in the financial crisis of the years 2008/2009.

Potential Resistance is the all time high at 4 238.04

Support Levels: 3 247.93 | 2 490.91
SMA20: 1 891.48

We expect to see the S&P 500 resume the long term uptrend. Only a drop below the 2020 low at 2191,86 would turn the positive long term chart to neutral or negative. But this outlook has a very low probability of only 30 %.
