Further to my post of November 24, 2016, the World Market Index did, subsequently rally and is now stuck in a trading range between 1700 and 1750, as shown on the Daily chart below.
In that post, I mentioned the importance of a break and hold above 1750 as a potential signal of clear support for world equities, in the longer term, including that of the SPX.
You can see that a new “SELL” signal has just been triggered by the bearish crossovers of the MACD and PMO indicators.
Yesterday was clearly a good day to introduce my new Jack in the Box continuation/flag pattern. The double bottom broke down slightly and has then reversed back into a full test of 2299.40. The full ATH retest at 2300.99 is VERY close and should be tested today if we are going to see that full retest. SPX 60min chart:
Want to see something interesting? Here’s the chart of the USD/JPY forex cross-rate (black chart) married with gold (blue chart). The correlation seems about as close to -1 as you can get. As my Slope Plus subscribers know, I’ve got a hodgepodge of gold-oriented shorts, so it appears that USD/JPY is key to watch.
