    The S&P retreated to the 13-EMA this week after three consecutive weeks of gains to record highs. We continue to trade in a large channel off the Brexit lows which measures up to 2,280 and long-term targets up above of 2,400 from the July breakout. The 20-EMA below is support at 2,180 and then the 50-EMA at 2,165 while both supportive of the August to October range. Cloud support is at 2,150 and a big volume area from September. Price action remains constructive and not seeing anything bearish yet on the overall indices, the trend remaining higher. RSI is pulling back under the 60 level after getting extended the last three weeks and MACD curling lower.
