This is expiration week, and hopefully there will be some movement this week, as once expiration is over and the holidays kick in, it will probably be very quiet. The technical pattern seems to argue that the S&P will break to the upside from its 1090-1120 range. Whether it's a headfake or not, I don't know yet. Sentiment analysis is overly bullish at the moment though. Usually, the market rises towards the end of december. But not always. I'd like to hear others opinion of what will happen THIS expiration week. I believe it will be lower than the current price by the end of the week.. Current S&P price is 1110.
