SPY back near bottom of 5 year pennant

|Includes: SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF (SPY)

The S&P is fast approach a trendline of support that has been in play since 2008.  Though not a clean line along bottom support, it has effected change as both support and resistance, and has been meaningful support since 2009.  Though I grow increasingly confident that we have seen a major top put in place, this trendline around 1140 is very meaningful.  A break to the downside would be (another) decisive blow by the bears to a pennant pattern in play since 2007.  Should a bearish break occur, I speculate the next significant support resides around 1060.
