Futures Market Review and Forecast: New Support has Emerged

The S&P 500 is stabilizing near its all-time highs, which is a bullish development. Even more interesting, from a Volume Profile perspective, is the development of a new key support area at 2091. As volume accumulates around a price zone, it creates a floor, a basis for a move higher. The upside target is 2118.

That said, the market is still overbought and needs to work that condition off. Moreover, the gap at 2070 still beckons. I expect a move in one direction or another on Friday.
