Stock Market Knocking On The Door Of 875 S&P 500... / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Jack_Steiman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnd the knocking is getting louder and louder.  Friday we basically made our second try at this very difficult level of resistance, getting up to 871 before some strong selling came in as the bears desperately tried to defend it. We then came back up some and closed only nine points away at 866. Good solid overall action by the bulls in their efforts to get through and move towards Sp 900/940. We started out with a move higher in the morning as Ford (F) shocked the street with less losses, beating the consensus number by 48 cents. They also spoke of things improving quite a bit of late and that they see this trend remaining in effect going forward.

Nasdaq Q's Heading Higher / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The daily chart on the PowerShares QQQ Trust (Nasdaq:  QQQQ) is scary because is so bullish – and represents a much more powerful pattern than the SPYs.  The reason that it is scary is because the Q’s are poised to confront the declining 200 DMA, now at 33.34, which is 3% above current prices.  However, my upside measured targets off of the huge base pattern are 35.20/40, and then 38.00.  The weakness earlier in the week in the Q’s tested and held critical intermediate-term support at 32.00-31.80 and since yesterday morning the price structure has turned up—and is accelerating towards a test of the 200 DMA (34.50 area).  Only a plunge that breaks 31.80 will wreck the near and intermediate-term bullish set-up.

Surprisingly Strong Stock Market Session / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

The markets had a surprisingly strong session after yesterday's sharp losses. The indices were strong from the get-go, then had a steep early pullback that retested the lows but held, and then rallied back up to new session highs on the S&P 500, but the NDX at that point trailed miserably. On several occasions, they tried to punch through key overhead resistance but couldn't and they rolled back in the early afternoon, first bounced and then thrust to new session snapback highs, pulled back with about 15 minutes to go, but closed strongly right near the session highs.

Stock Market Ominous Sell-Off / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

The indices had a very sharp decline on Monday that may very well have reversed the entire 6 week uptrend. With the indices closing at the lows for the day and down sharply, led lower by the financials which had led the market up, it was a seemingly significant negative day on Wall Street.

Over Bought Stock Market Pauses / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThat’s where we are in terms of whether equities, and the inflation mindset, continue to fill with air past this point – it’s time for a pause. This is basically what Carl Swenlin is pointing out in making the observation intermediate-term technicals are now overbought, and that the stock market should pullback somewhat from here before building the necessary steam to produce a more lasting breakout. And this is what I expect also, as long as increasingly negative sentiment in the betting parlors allows prices to continue climbing the wall of worry. Because as alluded to in discussing our fraudulent and dysfunctional markets last week, you should understand that all of our markets work on the same premise, where the gamblers and speculative sentiment largely control price movements, not fundamentals, at least not until it’s too late.

Stock Market Indices Surge Out of 3-Day Downtrend, Rally to New 5-Month Highs / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

Another strong session going into options expiration tomorrow. The indices had a large gap up at the opening, backed and filled, pulled back quickly in the morning but held support. That was key. When support held they started a rally that retested the highs, backed off and then moved through them, and in the last hour spiked up, reaching new 5-month highs, at 870 on the S&P 500 and nearly 1359 on the Nasdaq 100. Only in the last 15-20 minutes did the market pull back and pare the gains.

Nasdaq Trails in Mixed Session, As Blue Chips Hold Support and Rally Back / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

We had a very interesting session on Wednesday. Most indices managed to end in the positive column except for the Nasdaq 100 and Philadelphia Semiconductor Index (SOXX), which pressured the NDX all day. But the story was how firmly the S&P 500 and Dow held despite three consecutive new intraday lows on the NDX. That positive divergence caused a late, short-covering rally that popped the indices and closed them near the highs for the day going away.

Stock Market Rally's Momentum Blunted, on Sharp Selloff / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

It was a decidedly negative session in a turnaround Tuesday as the indices gapped lower, bounced, and then moved sharply lower midday before an afternoon bounce brought them back. But in the last 10-15 minutes, they spiked lower again bringing the SPX and Dow near the lows for the day. Net on the day the Dow was down 137.63 at 7920.18, the S&P 500 down 17.22 to 841.51, and the Nasdaq 100 down 14.36 to 1522.31. The Philadelphia Semiconductor Index (SOXX) lost 6.10 to 250.

VIX Breakdown Forecasts Stocks Bear Panic / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Steven_Vincent

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVIX: Decisive breakdown validates near term buying panic hypothesis. A quick reversal above 40 needed to invalidate this view. Given the duration of the chart formation and the MA squeeze this is not likely to be a false move. Targeting 30 to coincide with SPX 1000.

Stocks Close the Week with a Bang / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

The indices ended the week with a bang in a huge up-session Thursday ahead of the holiday weekend. The day started out with a big gap up as the indices exploded on a better-than-expected earnings pre-announcement from Wells Fargo (WFC) which sent the financial sector surging 15.5%, and which induced buying in the broader market as all three major indices were able to log their best single session percentage gain in two weeks and close at their session highs.

Stock Market Indices Hold Support and Close Higher / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

The indices had 5 distinct sharp swings today, but a last-hour rally brought them back from a severe test of support, particularly on the S&P 500 at 815. When that was successful, for the 5th time in 2 days, they rallied back sharply.

Recovery Rally in S&P 500 Short SPY ETF / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The pullback in the S&P 500 Depository Receipts (AMEX: SPY) from 84.80 to 81.30 since Monday has coincided with the recovery rally in the ProShares Single Leveraged Short SPY (NYSE: SH) from 73.00 to 76.00, which also happens to have filled the down-gap left behind last Thursday. Classic technical behavior would argue for the SH now to decline after having filled the gap. If such a scenario unfolds, then the SH should press back into the 74.00-73.80 area, which would imply a climb towards 84.00 in the SPY concurrently. We maintain a long position in the SH in our model portfolio as a partial hedge against an implosion in our long positions.

More Sharp Losses for Stock Indices / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

The indices suffered more sharp losses today, as expected. The day started out with a large gap down. The indices moved sharply lower, tested support, bounced, and then took them out mid-day, reaching secondary support around 1270 NDX and 815 SPX. When that held for about an hour, they tried to rally and did so, but with about 10 minutes to go sold off very sharply and gave back the entire rally on the SPX, closing near the lows for the day on that index and not from it on the NDX.

Stock Market Indices Close Lower, though Pare Declines / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

The indices had a down session, but came back off the late morning session lows to pare the declines by quite a bit. The day started out with a gap down. They stair-stepped lower, then bounced around mid-morning, stabilized, and then started to rally. It was a 9-wave advance from 11:30 to the close that took the indices back up to neew highs for the session in the late 5 mintues.

Stock Market Counter Trend Rally Could Extend for Several Months / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market
SPX: Long-term trend - Down! The very-long-term cycles have taken over and if they make their lows when expected, the bear market which started in October 2007 should continue until 2012-2014. This would imply that much lower prices lie ahead.
