May 1, 2014: SPX treads water ahead of Friday’s Non-Farm Payroll report.

05-02-14 SPX Daily Headline Chart

SPX attempts to extend higher to then stall and end Thursday's session with marginal losses. This shouldn't surprise as the outcome to Friday's Non-Farm Payroll report awaits. The reaction to this report will determine if a potentially negated daily descending trendline is validated or only adjusted. It should go without saying, prudent investors/traders should stand aside and wait for better opportunities next week.

Speculative short term traders may consider any over extensions into volatility band resistance/support levels for contra-trend entries with a very brief time expectations to capture profits or exist with minor losses. It is recommended to reduced position size to accommodate elevated volatility.
