The SPX is at a critical juncture

SP:SPX   S&P 500 Index
Last Friday, the SPX gapped up at the open and temporarily broke above the 50-day SMA during the trading session. Finally, yesterday, the SPX managed to close above this line of resistance, which is a positive development. However, a failure of the price to defend the ground above this level, now acting as support, for multiple consecutive days will be concerning. Similarly concerning will be the flattening of RSI, MACD, and Stochastic, which are in the process of reversing to the upside.
