The S&P 500 index  I:GSPC has remained buoyant in recent weeks and is basically just treading water near recent highs while in a strong uptrend overall. We want to look to buy this market this week to trade in line with that uptrend. We'd prefer to see a pullback to the 2150.00 support level before entering a trade, but the index could also break higher following the bullish pin bars we saw on Friday and Wednesday. The uptrend is quite strong.
