Summary:  US Equities ended Friday strongly forming a bottom and reversal pattern indicate a nice rebound to expected. Overall trend is still down , however.

Friday S&P 500 reached and tested 3,815 support as mentioned few weeks ago it was likely to do in May. Trading session ended on a strong note forming a Hammer candle (occurs in a down trend where lower shadow – or wick – is 2-3 times the height of the body with no or little upper shadow) which is bottom and reversal indicator. With divergence on RSI a rebound is likely that could take S&P500 towards 4,100 before selling pressure is likely to resume.
