Stock Consolidation Over... Maybe

The S&P finally got back on top of its 50 day moving average after a week under the mark.

Will it hold?

The economic calendar next week holds the answer to that question as we will be served up a wide array of worthwhile reports. Housing data and GDP being the most meaningful.

Monday: Durable Goods

Tuesday: Case-Shiller Home Price Index, Consumer Confidence

Wednesday: Pending Home Sales

Thurday: Jobless Claims, Q2 GDP first revision

Friday: Personal Income & Outlays, Chicago PMI, Consumer Sentiment

If all goes well, then we will likely retrace towards the recent highs of 1709. If not, then we'll consolidate a while longer with the long term bull still intact.
