A good amount of news ahead in the week to come, all eyes and ears will be on Friday’s GDP number. We will be looking for a slowing in deceleration of the economy.
We see the S&P 1,000 level as the next target, but foresee a pullback to 956 before this happens. Getting short with a stop over the S&P 980 level would be one potential play here; however with many traders’ thinking in this way, a move above 980 could send the market catapulting higher as stop orders are triggered.
