SPY 3 months, daily candles Another push below it's 200 day MA(purple) on Friday but reversed and closed back above there and the daily 12ema(white) by close. Follow thru of weakness following the FOMC is being resisted so far, and the daily uptrend remains intact; Fridays low looking like it will be the next "higher low" set, as we're positioned to gap up thru Fridays high and get the daily bounce underway.
