Head and Shoulders Top? S&P 500 to Consolidate and find Lower Trading Range

S&P 500 Market Top?

The U.S Stock Market as represented by the S&P 500 has made a good run, from S&P 500 level of 666 to 1219.80 for a strong rally.

However, based on the Chart Annotation above, the S&P 500 may have hit a Head and Shoulders Top, a Technical Pattern (analyzing patterns based on stock chart patterns) that suggests that a Top has been made and a downtrend could ensue.

Consolidation Pattern then Breakdown or Breakout?

Longer Term, the S&P 500 market may re-test the Previous low of 666, or a more likely situation, the S&P 500 market will start to consolidate into a sideways Symmetrical Triangle Pattern as shown in the chart above.

In the Symmetrical Triangle Pattern, the Stock or Market trades in the triangle, until it reaches closer to the end of the triangle, and then the market may break upwards, or downwards.

The Market does look like it may be going lower and find a lower trading range for now.
