Market Update 5/5 – The Reversal Reverses

Today’s Dow move is important because price plummeted from the center line of the Schiff fork that originates at the 2009 low. In simpler terms, this line has been key support and/or resistance for years (note the highlighted areas…zoomed in chart is below). Consider the market in dangerous territory while price is beneath this center line.

Market Update 5/4 – Consensus Trade Reversals!

Violent reversal indeed. I’m of the mind that this rally has legs given the massive 1.0500 figure and extraordinarily bearish sentiment. Upside focus is 1.0840 or so, which is the underside of the trendline from the 2017 low and median line of the bearish fork. Support is 1.0570/90 (see below).

Market Update 5/3 – Upside SPX Levels of Note

SPX held up after yesterday’s reversal. There are 2 big levels to note for possible resistance…4250 and 4360/90. The latter level seems like a stretch in the near term but FOMC is tomorrow and sentiment is wildly bearish, which provides plenty of fuel for a violent squeeze. Bottom line, I’m thinking higher following yesterday’s reversal, especially after futures held the large volume level during Tuesday’s trade (see below).

Market Update 5/2 – SPX Squeeze Time?

SPX took out the 2/24 low (invasion low) before reversing higher to finish with a high volume reversal (see below). The low was right at the median line of the bearish fork too. Sentiment across virtually all major asset classes is insanely extreme (USD, bonds, and equities). The median line tag and reversal from under the February low is a perfect setup for a squeeze higher. If however price breaks below the median line then the market would be in crash territory.
