The S&P has extended to a new intraday high at 3309.45. We currently trade just off that level at 3308.85.
Looking at the hourly chart above, the price gapped above a topside trend line and has been able to stay above that broken trend line. The line currently comes in at 3304 (and moving higher). Stay above keeps the bulls firmly in control. A move below with just muddy the bullish waters on the failed break.
