S&P E-minis traded sharply lower Monday before rebounding. The break below the 50-day EMA earlier this week marked a bearish development. However, support surfaced below this EMA and the strong recovery highlights a potential bullish reversal. Note that Monday’s candle pattern was a hammer - a bullish signal. Watch support at 4572,75, Monday’s low, a break would reinstate a bearish theme. Major resistance and the bull trigger is at 4808.25.
