Where do we go from here? The trend is up in the broad markets (above 200MA and Advance/Decline line is at all-time highs) and the S&P 500 is on the verge of a breaking through resistance at 1929. Why 1929? What would it mean if it did?
The above are edited excerpts from a post* by Chris Kimble (blog.kimblechartingsolutions.com) entitled S&P 500 within 1% of target price….Now where do we go from here?

Kimble goes on to say in further edited excerpts:
Back in November I posted an article in which I proclaimed that the S&P 500 would face stiff resistance at the 1,929 price level because two price points meet at that level:
- support dating back to the 1987 & 2003 lows and
- a Fibonacci extension level based upon the 1974 & 2003 lows.
All of these price resistance points come together at one price zone, creating a central zone of resistance.
- If the index were to break through it would strongly suggest that the upward trend continues.
- If for some odd reason the trend changes on a dime up there, these price points would be more important than they might seem right now.

Last year’s “Sell in May” period was only the third time since the turn of the century that stocks have postedstockcrash-2 double-digit gains from May through October so, with stocks still near all-time highs as the calendar flips to May, do the law of averages suggest we’re on the brink of a major pullback over the next six months?
