He notes that a technical pattern called “head and shoulders” is now completing its formation in the market, which began in the first half of September. According to Mr. Mancini, the longer it takes to build the second shoulder of the pattern, the stronger the upward rise of the index will be.

Besides, the analyst has already been speculating about the fate of the S&P 500 last week.

“Have a good weekend! Major news weekend for $SPX- where dust settles after open is key My plan: Main setup is a large bullish inverse H&S. If we hold above (or recover) 3310 will be looking long for a breakout to 3470 For bears: If 3310 fails we see 3235- last lvl before 3110”Adam Mancini via Twitter

S&P 500’s Future Growth

Earlier, Ryan Detrick, an analyst, a chief market strategist and a senior Vice President of LPL Finance, reported that, according to historical data, the fourth quarter of 2020, which began in October, will be extremely positive for the S&P 500.

In 11 cases out of 11, if traditionally a weak third quarter suddenly turned into growth, this growth will be continued in the fourth quarter. This year, Q3 was unexpectedly strong for the SPX, which was able to gain about 8.5%, despite the correction that took place in October. This is the best indicator in the last 10 years.
