S&P 500 Index Gap Wrap
S&P 500 Index (SPX) 3185.04 added 55.03 points or +1.76% last week, closing the breakaway gap that formed a potential Island Top Reversal.
Invesco QQQ ETF Uptrend
The Invesco QQQ ETF quickly reversed last week and then broke out to the upside taking the S&P 500 Index with it as it bounced off support at the 200-day Moving Average.
The 200-Day Snag
Until Friday of last week, the 200-day Moving Average supported the declining S&P 500 Index.
The Gaps
S&P 500 Index (SPX) 3097.74 gained 56.43 points or +1.86% last week.
Island Top Reversal
S&P 500 Index 3041.31 declined 152.62 points or -4.78% last week, just 3 points more than it gained the week before.
S&P 500 Index Trendline Update
S&P 500 Index bullish momentum continued last week including a gap up open last Friday as it closed 81.58 points or +2.62% higher.
Beyond The 200
Of course, the 200 refers to the 200-day Moving Average of the S&P 500 Index.
New Upward Sloping Trendline
S&P 500 Index (SPX) 2955.45 added 91.75 points or +3.20% last week after closing above the top of the trading range on Wednesday before pulling back Thursday and Friday as it approached overhead resistance from the 200-day Moving Average at 2999.72.
Range Emerges
It seems last week's claim about the S&P 500 Index forming a new uptrend was premature.
New Uptrend Underway
S&P 500 Index added 99.09 points or +3.50% last week after turning higher last Monday ending the chance for the activation of a potential Rising Wedge.
Rising Wedge Review
S&P 500 Index slid 6.03 points or -.21% last week after declining Thursday. Friday's gap open lower set off a new potential Rising Wedge.
Contrarian Oil & Gas Trade

Potential Rising Wedge (Charts)
The S&P 500 Index continued higher last week, despite disappointing crude oil prices and initial unemployment claims indicating tough economic conditions will continue, although plans for reopening the U.S. economy seemed to offset the negative news.
