    Apr 26, 2012 3:24 PM | about stocks: SPY

    April 27, 2012

    Both the S&P 500 Index (SPX) and its tracking ETF the S&P Deposit Receipts (NYSE: SPY) have broken above recent resistance levels.

    Over the past several weeks, SPY closed well below its 50-day moving average and had stayed below resistance at 139.00 for twelve trading days.

    Wednesday's sharp earnings inspired rally pushed SPY to just above resistance with a close at SPY 139.19.

    Thursday's rally confirmed the breakout with an almost 1% advance. Look for SPY to test its highs, at 142.21, in coming days. A breakout above those highs would point to a new leg up for the stock market.

    Current support is at SPY 135.94.

    The Fibtimer.com (http://www.fibtimer.com) ETF Timing Strategy has a position in the S&P 500 SPDRs.

    Frank Kollar has been timing the financial markets since 1982, with online service since 1996. He is a dedicated trend timer and his strategies exited the markets before the crash in 1987 as well as the bear market in 2000 through 2002. During the 2000-2002 bear market and the 2008-2009 bear market his bearish positions resulted in substantial gains, all achieved by trading trends.

    Disclosure: I am long SPY.
