S&P 500 Technical Forecast: Still in Bounce Mode, Broader Outlook Bearish

The market is bouncing right now, but that is all it looks like it is doing. While the S&P 500 is far off its record highs in a relatively short period of time, there has yet to be a major spike in fear that suggests a low is in.

The VIX has been high as volatility has been elevated since the start of the year. We are in a regime of high levels of volatility where even moves to the high 30s in the VIX aren’t signaling any kind of real panic and capitulation that suggests a sustainable low is in.

It appears that we will need to see a spike to 50-60+ before that happens, and that it is possible much higher. In the past that would have seemed almost unrealistic, but given how volatility itself has become a highly traded asset class, moves in vol are exasperated. The new normal for vol, if you will.

The S&P 500 is trading around the Feb low where a bounce also developed earlier this month. The area around 4100 is the first important spot to look for the market to struggle at. We have yet to see a thorough testing, but looks likely to happen in the days ahead.

Volatility and ceiling put in at that juncture could mark an important bounce high. But even if the market can recapture that level it doesn’t change the broader outlook, much more work will be needed to do that. With that said, a bounce shouldn’t develop much beyond 4300 if the market is in the process of weakening before another big leg lower.

    • While Layer 2 scaling solutions have helped alleviate congestion on blockchains like Ethereum, Layer 3 rollups are emerging as the next frontier for achieving ultimate scalability and cost-effectiveness. Three prominent layer 3 rollup stand out; ZKlink, Immutable X, and dYdX, each having its distinct strengths. .ZKlink stands out as a prominent player in this space, offering unique advantages compared to other Layer 3 protocols. While Immutable X Built on StarkNet focuses primarily on NFT marketplaces and gaming applications. dYdX utilizes StarkNet for rollups, achieving high throughput for trading activities. With each of the above focusing on a particular user in crypto space, ZKlink take it a bit far by prioritizing interoperability, liquidity solutions, and developer customization. ZKlink also the ability to bridge the gap between different blockchain layers and optimize scalability which makes it a significant force in shaping the future of decentralized applications.   The recent Bitget  listing of ZKLink native token further created buzz around the project due to the anticipation of the round one airdrop. Considering the fact that only ZK link utilizes fast financial transactions throughput using the innovative Ts-Evm makes it more unique and position it as the frontrunner in layer 3 rollup race.
    • I've been exploring numerous methods of passive earning over the years aside from spot trading. These methods include staking, futures trading, OTC trading, bot trading, copy trading, and launchpool. I've achieved some successes along the way, and now I'm trying to streamline and focus on just a few passive income opportunities. Actually looked into a project I encountered on X while browsing for opportunities. Branded as UPLAND, I was kinda drawn due to its Gamefi (NFT, metaverse) affiliation on Bitget's launchpool. Let's see what exploring this token fetches me this time 😁🤞🏻 Would love your shared experience(s) using this feature if any and what it's really like?
