Scandex Technical Weekly: 11/1/2020

Another month is in the books and SPX continues to trade ‘heavily’ under the its ‘meridian line’. An inside month formed in October. Recall that September was an outside bearish month (see the close up view below). Of note is XHB (homebuilders), which made a monthly volume reversal in October (see below). Is this one of the last segments of the market to put in a top?

Market Update – September 11

My working assumption is that a B wave triangle ended today at 1975.20 (exactly the 8/3 low) in gold. I am bearish against today’s high and looking for weakness lower in a C wave towards 1800 or so by the end of the month.

Market Update – September 9

QQQ has broken down and the same levels are in focus that were noted yesterday (text below). All I’m adding is that if price bounces from here (a gap up on news tomorrow for example) then 279 is proposed resistance.

Market Update – September 8

ES made a bearish weekly volume reversal last week. Since the 2009 low, there have been 3 other bearish reversals and 1 bullish reversal. Reversals in 2010 and early 2018 identified interim highs.

Market Update – August 18

Be aware of the 261.8% expansion of the 2000-2002 decline in QQQ at 283.50 as potential resistance. That’s about 3% higher. The first 2 Fibonacci levels, 127.2% and 161.8%, presented several opportunities (close up view is below). The equivalent level in the Nasdaq Composite Index is 11643.40, which is 4.6% higher than today’s close (2 charts down).

Market Update – July 29

Today was the first day since the rally off of the March low that QQQ made a lower pivot high with 5 day strength. That means that there are 5 days on each side of the high.

Market Update – July 24

USDOLLAR (EUR, GBP, AUD, and JPY) is testing a major level (daily chart is below). Price reacted today at the top side of the center line of the Schiff fork from the March high and the top side of the line off of the March and May highs. This is a great spot for a bounce. Pay attention to the upper parallel and former support at 12253. A break above there would indicate an important behavior change.

Market Update – July 21

I’m not sure what to say anymore when it comes to indices. NYSE breadth, for example, was negative today (more stocks down than up) but both the S&P 500 and Nasdaq were up. The Nasdaq was up A LOT thanks to MSFT and AMZN.
