Market Update 5/24 – More USD Trades and Watch Copper

Copper has rebounded after testing a support shelf from last fall. 4.46 or so is well-defined for resistance. The level is defined by the 200 day average, the underside of former trendline support, and the March low.

Market Update 5/23 – Temporary Lows in Place for Indices and USD Trades

As noted, evidence for a low in the S&P is strong. Friday’s low is at the line that crosses the January and February lows and the LONG TERM parallel (see below chart). Also, VWAP from the 2020 low in SPY held last week (see 2 charts down). 4105 is the initial level to pay attention to but 4270s in the index and 426.00s in SPY line up more significant levels…eventually.

Market Update 5/16 – Weekly Bond Market Reversal

TLT completed a 2 week high volume reversal last week. Over the last 10 years, this signal has occurred right at or very close to a major turn. Also, a 1 week volume reversal triggered last week (see below). This is just the second 1 week bullish reversal since the inception of the ETF. The other one marked the 2007 low.

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 5/2 – 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.

Market Update 4/2 – GBPUSD and NZDUSD Levels in Focus

GBPUSD tagged the topside of the trendline from the 2015 high. Again, this line crosses 3 yearly highs. Daily RSI is below 19. Prior readings this low over the last 20 years are shown with magenta dots on this chart and the following 2 charts. The combination of the level and the RSI reading have me on reversal watch. Stay tuned.

Market Update 4/27 – Extreme Momentum Readings in GBPUSD

GBPUSD is nearing the 61.8% retrace of the rally from the 2020 low at 1.2495. The top side of the trendline that originates at the 2015 high (blue line) is just below this level near 1.2415. The next 3 charts highlight when daily RSI is below 21 over the last 20 years. All instances led to at least interim lows EXCEPT during the financial crisis. So, unless this is the financial crisis, we should be on the lookout for a reversal.

Market Update 4/25 – Fed Capitulates on Bonds

The Nasdaq is holding on for dear life. Price continues to trade around the well-defined trendline that crosses highs over the last 8 years (see zoomed out chart below). Bigger picture, one must acknowledge that trend is sideways at best and possibly down with price below the 200 day average and that average shifting from a flat to a negative slope. Near term, today’s reversal sets up for a squeeze higher with resistance in the 14300-14500 range. A relief rally is needed in order to relieve extremely negative sentiment.

Market Update 4/13 – USD Topped Today

DXY printed 100.52 today and then carved a key reversal. In fact, UUP (USD ETF) made a high volume reversal (see below). The combination of the wave count, measured level (recall the 100.59 measurement), upper channel line, and volume reversal make a strong case that the USD topped today.

Market Update 3/23 – BTCUSD Triangle Since January Low

Everything since the January low in BTCUSD appears to be a triangle. Triangles typically break in the direction of the prior move…in this case that would be lower. Under Elliott, triangles consist of 5 waves labeled A-B-C-D-E. BTCUSD clearly sports 5 waves since the January low. The implication is that price rolls over soon and eventually breaks beneath the January low.
