S&P E-minis traded sharply lower on Jan 10 before rebounding. The contract managed to find support below the 50-day EMA and has defined a key short-term support at 4572.75, Jan 10 low. Price needs to remain above this level to avoid a deeper reversal that would expose 4520.25, the Dec 20 low. On the upside, clearance of the 4739.50/52.57 zone would refocus attention on the key resistance and bull trigger at 4808.25.
