Stock Index Trading Strategies and Plan of Attack / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Index ETF Trading Strategies: Stocks have kick started this week with a 0.85% pop in price but the big question is if the market can hold up. Last week stocks repeatedly gap higher and sold off with strong volume telling us that institutions are slowing phasing out of stocks (distribution selling) unloading shares into strength and passing them onto the a average investor to be left holding bag.

S&P Index Trading - Correction May Occur / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Gregor_Horvat

A sharp impulsive reversal from the highs suggests that the S&P500 has reached a temporary top and that price is heading lower or sideways in wave 4. Wave 4 is a corrective leg so this can be only a temporary weakness but we still need three legs in (a)-(b)-(c) formation, before we may start looking back to the highs again. Based on the latest price action we see a completed wave (a), followed by wave (b) that may find resistance next week around 1800/20.

S&P Stock Index Charts Speak Loudest, Clearest, And Most Accurately / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Michael_Noonan

Not that charts actually "speak," but the information taken from them can be the most reliable for anyone wanting to accumulate profits. Does not everyone want to accumulate profits? You would think that the answer would be an easy yes, but somewhere in the process of "investing" in the stock market, the answer is not as obvious as it would seem.

Why not?

Good question.

Lack of discipline is one of the more key answers. Ignorance comes to mind as a more widespread one. Too many people simply do not know what to do at the right time or at critical moments. When a stock or a futures contract is not going well, aka creating losses, the first question, it would seem, is what was the plan? What was the reason for entering into a position in the first place? What was the exit plan,[surely there was one]?

Cyprus Deposits Theft Bank Run Trigger for Stock Market Drop? / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Financial SHOCK and AWE has sent the Greek cypriot population into a panic as the Government of Cyprus upped the anti in the game of systemic theft of wealth from savers / all depositors by virtue of the Governments announcement to steal an average of 10% of ALL bank deposits in Cypriot banks as part of a Euro 10 billion bailout plan, including declaring a bank holiday to prevent bank runs whilst the fine details are worked out as to exactly who will have what percentage stolen from their bank accounts.

Stock Market Rally, Did S&P 13.74 Point Rally Finish the Move? / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere were few "fundamental" reasons to be bullish on U.S. stocks on Friday morning (June 15).

If anything, the news that the U.S. unemployment rose in 18 states in May sounded downright bearish. But stocks rallied anyway -- for a seemingly unlikely reason, explained the pundits: Because all the bad news lately makes it likely that the Fed will step in again.

Stock Market Trading, Ignore The News, It’s All About Support And Resistance / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: David_Grandey

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the weekend, we addressed the news from Spain.  But we didn’t obsess about the news itself — instead we talked about how we were going to use REACTIONS to the news in the indexes to form our game plan to profit for the week.
 
And that’s the key — Greece, Spain, Italy, US jobs reports, etc. etc. etc???  We just pay attention to the charts and do what the charts tell us to do.  And nothing can be more simple than paying attention to simple support and resistance.

Emini S&P Stock Index Pattern Still Bullish / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

After two hours of trading, let's notice that although the e-mini S&P 500 declined 14 points off its reaction spike-high after the Jobs Report, the weakness did NOT violate last evening's pullback low at 1266.75, which preserves a constructive intraday pattern bias.

At this juncture, only a decline that breaks both 1268.25 and 1266.75 will disrupt the overall bullish pattern off of yesterday's low -- and should trigger a press to test more critical support at 1259.75.

S&P in Bullish Consolidation / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Heading into the final two hours of trading, the e-mini S&P 500 continues to consolidate at the very upper end of its upmove from Friday's low at 1147.50 to this morning's high at 1196.25. As long as intraday support at 1188.50/00 contains any forthcoming weakness, the pattern overwhelmingly argues for upside continuation that propels the e-SPZ to new recovery highs above 1196.25 into the 1202-1208 next target zone. This is where my work indicates that a rest and corrective process should emerge.

Near-Term Low Approaching for S&P Stocks Index / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The next optimal target zone for the current downleg in the e-mini S&P 500 is 1155/50. This represents the 50% retracement support plateau of the entire up-leg from the Oct 4 low at 1068 to the Oct 27 high at 1289.25.

Right now, we are getting anecdotal evidence only that the internal power of the decline is dissipating somewhat, which is an initial warning signal that a meaningful near-term low is approaching.

Stock Market Emini S&P Nearing Key Fib Support / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

A big picture perspective of the e-mini S&P 500 shows that the decline off of the Oct 27 high at 1289.25 is nearing key Fibonacci support plateaus at 1179.25 and then 1153.50.

Let's notice that since last Thursday's weakness, the e-SPZ has broken and sustained beneath the prior "bullish" coil pattern, as well as my "directional" EMAs of 14, 30, 50 and 200, all of which have rolled over into varying degrees of a negative slope.

S&P Stock Index Unable to Sustain Strength / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

As the e-mini S&P 500 circled unchanged near the end of Friday's session, we noticed the price action had failed to lift off of the lower Bollinger Band line at 1206.25 on the daily chart.

In an underlying, very constructive technical set-up, a traverse from the upper BBnd line (1289.25 on Oct 27) to the lower BBnd (1207 on Nov 17) usually resolves itself in a potent upmove off the lower line, which renews the dominant uptrend.

SP Dec Futures Intraday - Operation Twist Begins / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Jesse

Although this could break out and keep going, I have held the thought that this is just a short squeeze within the context of a broad trading range from 1100 to 1220. It should be noted that the futures tend to be a little 'sloppy.' These moves up and down in a broad channel are what is known as a 'wash and rinse' or 'wax on, wax off.'

The Case for the Future Direction of SPX Stock Market Index / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: J_W_Jones

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA few weeks ago traders and market prognosticators were frantically trying to determine if the S&P 500 would hold the 200 period moving average. As it turns out, the 200 period moving was able to hold sellers in check. After a few days of grinding around, the S&P 500 pushed higher. The price action has been spectacular the past two weeks and the S&P 500 could potentially breakout to new 2011 highs. Only Mr. Market can push prices to the brink of disaster only to have them break to new highs in a matter of weeks.

Financial Stocks XLF ETF Prevented a Potentially Devastating S&P 500 Trade / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy most recent analysis regarding the S&P 500 has been proven to be inaccurate as a failed breakout has transpired on the S&P 500 this past week. While there is no such thing as a perfect analyst, I will openly admit that my most recent article proved to be wrong. After I watched as the S&P 500 broke out above the upper channel resistance area I was expecting continuation. What transpired the following day was absolute carnage in the marketplace.

The SPX Stocks Index Dances Between Danger and Excitement / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany readers might remember that exactly two years ago the S&P 500 tagged the infamous 666 price level before putting on a monster 2 year rally that saw it surge over 100% to the February 2011 highs. Investors today are staring at a rising wall of risk while corporate credit spreads remain bullish, corporations have been able to expand margins and produce increasing profits, and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has declared that there are no inflationary concerns. Quite frankly I am going to leave Ben Bernanke alone simply because so many other people will do a better job of declaring him incompetent and the creator of massive bubbles in risk assets, but I digress.
