Why The S&P 500 Is the Most Important Stock Chart

Why The S&P 500 Is the Most Important Stock Chart

The markets have been volatile, and during times like this, it’s hard to know the ultimate direction of the market.

Are we still in a bull market, or is this the start of the next crushing bear market?

We don’t know yet, but we can rely on the charts to tell us what to expect.

The chart that I watch daily is the S&P 500 Index.

Normally, it’s not that exciting.

But right now, it has formed a descending triangle pattern. Take a look:

Ultimate Direction

The pattern has a flat support area (in green), with a downward sloping resistance line (in red).

It’s important to know that this formation is usually a continuation pattern. Meaning, the direction that the market was heading before it started the pattern is the direction it continues.

Since we are in a bull market, we can expect the breakout to be higher, allowing us to continue the bull market.

But I’m aware it could be a reversal pattern, sending the market into bear market territory.

That’s why this chart is so important right now — it will tell us how to trade the next major move for the stock market.

“Thirteen of my positions are up well over 50% in less than a year since joining your service. Two are in the triple digits with several close behind. My personal money manager, who works for one of the largest banks in the country, is envious of my gains. I never dreamed this was possible. My trips to China to teach English to young Chinese students is now much more affordable. Thank you for your dedication and help.”

“Paul, your investment research has been a godsend. Our portfolio was just a tad over two million dollars. I paid my daughter's legal fees, my wife's medical expenses, helped my wife's stepmother with home repairs, loaned our son money for real estate. I also bought two used vehicles, one for our daughter and one for our eldest grandson. All told, these expenses added up to well over a quarter million dollars. I am happy to report that we have profits left over!”
