1392.92 is an important level now in the SPX. Because the initial move up from the April 10 low was in 3 waves, the price action since April 10 is most likely corrective, and downward movement is likely to resume almost immediately, with a short term downside target of 1348. However, if the SPX moves up into the price territory of what is labeled on the 15 minute chart above as blue 1 (above the April 5 low: 1392.92), wave 5 pink to the upside would likely be underway in the form of an ending diagonal, with an eventual upside target of 1449, where wave B (burgundy) would reach 1.382 times wave A (burgundy). The probability of this more bullish eventuality is increased by the fact that the DJIA has already moved up past what would have been labeled wave 1 blue there.
