S&P 500 Price Forecast – Stock Markets Continue to Grind Sideways Looking for Next Push Higher

The S&P 500 has pulled back a little bit to kick off the trading session on Friday but turned around to show signs of life again. Because of this, the market looks as if it is ready to go much higher given enough time. I think there is plenty of support underneath at the uptrend line, which of course is followed right along by the 50 day EMA. With this being the case, it is difficult to imagine area where I would be short at, because quite frankly between here and there I anticipate there will be plenty of value hunters.

If we did break down, the 4200 level and of course the 4000 level both offer enticing areas to pick up value, especially the 4000 level as it would be a 10% correction. It should be noted that the 4400 level has caused a bit of noise, but if we can break above there then the 4500 level is my next target but ultimately, I would anticipate seeing markets go much higher than that. My year-end target at the moment is 4600, but quite frankly this market continues to outperform expectations I do not see why it would be any different now.

The Federal Reserve has stated this week that it was not going to get close to tapering anytime soon, so that continues to drive the market higher. We are in the midst of earnings season which of course was very strong, but I think that was already expected considering what we had seen over the last year.
