SPX and NDX reached the resistance areas that I was looking at and may be topping out there, the rising wedge support trendlines on SPX, NDX and RUT have all now broken down. So what now?
Well on SPX I have been watching three levels which are all currently in the same area. These are the SPX weekly pivot at 2784, the 50 hour MA now at 2787 and the 5dma now at 2790. What I was looking for this morning was a break down through these, which we saw, then a backtest into those as resistance which failed in that range. That we did not see, and I’m wondering whether we are going to see a high retest next to set up the second high of a small double top. SPX is still on a 60min RSI 14 sell signal with a possible daily RSI 5 sell signal brewing.(more…)
Haven’t looked at the XLP diamond in a little while, so let’s take a fresh look. The counter-trend rally has pushed prices well into the diamond, but we’re starting to get repulsion away from the $55 level.(more…)
The folks down in Venice Beach have done an admirable job of temporarily turning Snap’s tumble around. The stock just about doubled since Christmas, but I would submit to you that it has reached important resistance at 10.51.(more…)
Quite a show today, huh? Three testimonies at once! You’ve got
Lighthizer talking about the kabuki theater of the China/US trade talks., the traitor Jerome Powell performing fellatio to the House of Representatives, and – – the most fun of all – – the freak show of the Cohen testimony. What a party! I wish George Carlin was still alive. More than ever.
Anyway, 100% of my short positions are profitable. 100% of 56 different positions. One of them, Red Robin, is one I’ve mentioned several times before. The sheer size of the topping pattern suggests that much, much lower prices are to come. I’m holding on.
So let’s see what’s going on………..
- India and Pakistan, both of them thermonuclear powers, appear to be on the brink of war;
- Michael Cohen is bringing testimony and hard evidence to his appearance today that would normally bury about ten Presidents;
- The U.S. trade deficit (see below) just hit its worst point in the history of the human race.
Normal market: Dow Jones down 2,300 points.
Today’s market: equities down less than one-fifth of one percent pre-open.(more…)
