S&P500 (ES) Consolidates Just Above Weekly Chart Downchannel Resistance

The S&P500 (ES) is trying to firm, but remains vulnerable this week to a deepening in the consolidation that began Friday. Although the February high formed Thursday has been slightly higher than the January and December highs, a slide back (this week) below the psychologically key 4k whole figure level and the uptrend support (on the weekly chart) connecting the October and December lows would keep alive the possibility (albeit moderately unlikely for now) that the break above the weekly chart downchannel resistance was a Bear Trap…
