US SPX 500 - a sustained recovery or just a dead cat bounce?

Equities markets have made a significant recovery in recent weeks, to arrive at the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the recent sell-off, down to 2,185.

In this week’s technical insights, Toby from Trade With Precision assesses the US SPX 500 technicals and notes the market would be predicting a 'V' shaped and sustained recovery from here.

However, he disagrees with this sentiment. Toby sees overhead resistance, coupled with the unprecedented US and global unemployment rate as a headwind too strong for the equity markets, and therefore anticipates a move back towards the lows.
