The U.S. market spent a few days resting and consolidating sideways before investors got a little nervous ahead of the EU summit on Thursday. Yet Thursday's market-wide sell-off was softened by a decent bounce on Friday. The major indices are still trading under resistance. A breakout could herald a new rally toward the end of the year. I would definitely wait for the S&P 500 to close over resistance before considering new bullish positions.
