After The Break

By -

Apologies for the late post today. I have had a very intense morning for one reason and another. I’ll just do a single chart post today as the setup on SPX here is straightforward.

Obviously the triangle broke up yesterday. SPX made a marginal new all time high and so on. I have a possible channel resistance trendline drawn in on the chart below that hasn’t been tested yet and may well hold. I have open 5min and 15min chart sell signals triggered at the (more…)

Too Many Triangles Lately

Very late post today as I was out much of the morning and I’ve had a busy open.

SPX failed just under triangle resistance yesterday and I have open 5min & 15min sell signals here. I’m looking for SPX to most likely test the globex low in the 2083-7 area before another test of triangle resistance. If Monday’s low at 2072.37 is broken, that would open up a test of triangle support in the 2055 area. SPX 15min chart:

Testing Triangle Resistance – Take #5

By -

After the strong day yesterday SPX is close to a test of triangle resistance in the 2110 area. If the triangle breaks up, as I’m expecting though not necessarily today, then bulls also need to take SPX over the last high at 2111.91, and then the current all time high at 2119.59. The 50 hour MA, which closed yesterday at 2098, is key support and any significant or sustained break below it would be a warning signal that the bulls might be unravelling for today.

Fall of an Icon

By -

Iconix Group (symbol ICON) is a stock I mentioned so many times as a short idea, I stopped even saying anything since it got so repetitive. Today is finally went into a full-blown free-fall, as the clean topping pattern so plainly suggested. I can only hope the dozens of other fantastic short setups succumb to reality just like ICON did today:

Two Triangles and A Megaphone

By -

SPX fell hard on Friday, made the smaller double top target and broke down from the larger double top. Shortly after the LOD SPX broke up from a falling wedge that I called on twitter, and closed the day at a retest of broken larger double bottom support. The retracement low may be in, and if we are to see a fail without another test of triangle resistance in the 2011 area then I’ll be looking for resistance at the 50% and 61.8% retracements on the falling wedge, in the 2092 and 2096.5 areas respectively. The 50 hour MA closed Friday at 2096 and is key resistance today. SPX 15min chart:
