There's been a long running debate between the technical analysis chartists and the fundamentalists and both sides can make their case for being "right". Both sides often think that their way is best and the other side is full of you know what...
Since no one can predict the future how did the recent Federal Reserve's hawkish position on interest rates that's filled the news just so happen to occur during a time when chartists like us were anticipating a potential pull back?

When I was in MBA school back in the late 1980s (yeah that's me back then long before gray hair) it was drilled into me that a company’s stock price was always tied to its financial statements. You know, Profit and Loss statements, Balance Sheets, etc and all that fancy financial lingo.
And so I went through much of my early adult life not really ever knowing otherwise.

And given the US debt ceiling headline news over the long weekend the S&P 500 futures ticker /ES gapped up about 20 points on the open to keep the bulls firmly in control.
On the current ES weekly chart I've only marked it up with Support/Resistance and Trend. Also known as basic structure. In this view traders can see that price often ping pongs between historical levels before proceeding in its next direction.
