BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- This could be a big week for the bulls. The S&P 500 is bouncing hard off of key support, finally granting a reprieve to anxious investors who've been watching for a trading signal. So are the S&P's "summer doldrums" already over by the start of July?

It's certainly possible. The index has already climbed more than 3% this week, bringing the index much closer to being out of the "danger zone" it's been flirting with for a while now. I've been harping on the S&P's critical technical outlook for the last few weeks, but today I'd like to show you what's going on in the market index -- and how to trade it. More on that in a minute.

It's also time to look at what's going on technically with some of the most popular stocks on Wall Street. Because these high-profile names often trade differently than the broad market, taking a look at their technicals can provide some significant trading opportunities when the market's being less than cooperative.
