Charts: S&P Could Rise Toward 1,175
The S&P 500 is showing "further upside potential" and could break out toward the next horizontal resistance level at 1,175 points, Roelof van den Akker from ING Wholesale Banking told CNBC Tuesday.

"We could see some further upside potential within the S&P and after the completion of the short-term trading range of 1,118 (points) we could see a further rise to the next horizontal resistance level," he said.

That key level is at 1,175 points, according to van den Akker. The S&P closed at 1,114 points on Monday.

"A close above 1,118 would confirm the break out of the longer-term falling trend line for the next rise towards around 1,175," he said.
