The Ghost Of Volatility Past

By -

Are the equity indices topping out here or not? I think yes, though likely just for a retracement before higher highs. SPX is retesting good trendline resistance, is on a strong daily RSI 5 / NYMO sell signal, and a daily RSI 14 sell signal is now brewing as well. Another retest of the all time high would establish possible nested double tops. Maybe. SPX daily chart:

NDX broke through initial channel resistance and is testing a slightly higher and better alternate channel option. NDX daily chart:

It’s hard to read the consolidation on RUT in recent days as anything other than a bull flag inviting a retest of the high, so that may be unfinished business above. RUT daily chart:

A decent nested double tops setup on ES if the all time high is retested and rejected. If so a hard break below weekly pivot (marked) should set the downside ball rolling. ES Dec 60min chart:

NQ is already on a 60min sell signal and a 60min RSI 14 sell signal is brewing on NDX. NQ Dec 60min chart:

Not much to say about TF other than this very much looks like a retracement / flag. If so the ATH should be retested before any reversal. TF Dec 60min chart:

If ES can break the all time high with any confidence then Stan has the next target in the 2610 area.

Everyone have a great Halloween. 🙂
