Intermediate-term Outlook

  • Bullish Scenario: A weekly close above the previous short-term high at 3,200 would reconfirm the uptrend from March and forecast additional gains.
  • Bearish Scenario: A reversal and weekly close below the middle of the Bollinger bands at 2,888 would predict a return to the 200-week moving average at 2,704.

Both scenarios are equally likely.
