Summary:  S&P 500 key support 4,110 hold and Index is set for a move to 4,300
Nasdaq lifted by Semiconductors has 15 % short-term potential
Dow Jones still range bound but could break out to the upside.
With the uptrend European Indices looking more and more stretched after outperforming US maybe investors are shifting their focus more to US Equities


S&P 500 bounced from short-term steep rising trendline. 4,110 support still holds. Us Equities are set for higher levels and S&P 500 is looking at 4,308 resistance which is also 1.618 projection of the December correction.

For S&P 500 to reverse the trend a close below 4,088 is first indication for a test of the medium-term falling trend line and the 55 daily SMA.
