Indexes Galore!

I am DE-LIGHT-ED to tell you that SlopeCharts has high quality index data now. The charts remain free of charge, although I actually am paying for this index data out of my own pocket. Lovely guy, eh? In any case, here’s the list of indexes. Ignore the symbols – – a lot of them are wrong – – and anyway you’ll already find them pre-entered for you in a watch list called INDEXES. Some of the data goes back for many decades. Enjoy! Oh, and if you’re on the fence about subscribing to Slope Plus, you might want to do it now. I’m going to be cranking up the price very soon, and unlike the olden times, I’m not giving any warning about it.

Just a quick post as I’ve been fighting the clock all day today, with a review of the pattern setup on SPX/ES, NDX/NQ and RUT/TF with the break over resistance last night.

On SPX the short term pattern from 2352 is a decent rising wedge. Wedge support currently in the 2410 area and a 15min RSI 14 sell signal fixed in the last half hour today. At the close a possible small double top forming looking for 2405/6 area on a sustained break below 2411.83. SPX 15min chart:

Constructive Progress

The star of today is, naturally, crude oil — and what a wild ride is has been! I came into the day long (VERY long……..) both DRIP and ERY. They started off well, and then they went into a free-fall which was, umm, a little disconcerting. Mercifully, I didn’t get stopped out, and they have turned around nicely. Take note, for instance, of the well-formed cup with handle pattern that has completed with ERY, shown below.
