Charts: S&P May Hit 1,157 but Momentum Is Waning

The S&P 500 could be due for an upswing toward 1,157 points in the short-term, but investor momentum is waning so a rise to that level would signal an “excellent” selling opportunity, Roelof van den Akker, chartist at ING Wholesale Banking, told CNBC.

Charts: S&P 500 Could Rally to 1,157

“We could see a possible short-term upward rise above resistance line for a test of this horizontal resistance at 1,157 (points), but also here we see this loss of momentum … as long as this continues we should also expect the development of a trend change sooner or later,” Akker said.

Akker recommends selling the S&P if it rises to 1,120 points or possibly 1,157 points. The move could prove to be “an excellent selling opportunity,” Akker said.
