S&P 1080 is the New 1085

on January 29 2010 2:22 PM

Thus far S&P 1080 has been a brick wall to bears.  I don't see the long term significance of this level but we've now bounced twice off that level on an intraday level and its very close to the low of yesterday which was just below 1079.

This is a much shorter time frame than we bother to analyze but for daytraders and such, an intraday chart is their mana.  We can see an double bottom formed, so if bulls are to be saved, buying off of an intraday double bottom like this would be the precursor.  I'm not sure how useful it is, because I don't do much intraday charting but I am trying to see both sides and find technical reasons to be hopeful if I had a bull hat on.  It won't change my intermediate view that the S&P 500 appears cooked....

We'll move down the line in the sand from 1085 to 1080 for now - let's see how these last 100 minutes of the day play out.  I can see it going either way right now.
