Fibonacci Support Levles
By David Waggoner
If there is anything left in this rally I am of the opinion that it can only extend from the last pivot at S&P 991.25. Therefore I am focusing on the shallow retracement levels of the move from 991.25 to the high at 1071.25.
Two key bounce levels offer a possible extension higher, 1051 and 1041. Both of these pivots are Fibonacci confluence levels pairing retracement pivots of the move up from 991 with extension pivots down from 1071. The more symmetrical and obvious pivot of the two is 1051.

A move higher targets 1078 -1080. It is more likely a corrective extension than an impulse wave extension.
A move lower must break through the two key pivots that are accentuated by Fibonacci confluence zones in order to gather momentum. If these pivots are broken that breaks the pattern up from 991 and likely the rally as a whole.

A Bloomberg news piece that just posted suggests that the Fed has started talks with primary dealers on Reverse Repos, to begin draining some of the excess liquidity in the markets.
Something tells me tomorrow's Fed statement might create a fair amount of excitement.

To Fil's earlier post.
I can't help but wonder if this a well-timed pre-G-20 strengthen the dollar step.
If I were the Fed Chair, it strikes me that a modest stock market pullback would be a small price to pay for harmony in Pittsburgh, especially now that even the weakest large banks have issued plenty of stock.
