What If … We See SPX Retest 3800

Everything is in the groove from my post yesterday. NDX and ESTX50 made new all time highs yesterday. SPX and Dow made new all time highs today, RUT retested the August high today, making the second high of a possible double top.

I had a look at all of these in my premarket video at theartofchart.net this morning and posted that on my twitter. If you missed that and would like to see it, you can see that here.

Obviously there is a chance that everything breaks up further here, so I’m carefully watching the well established resistance trendlines on SPX and NDX. The SPX wedge resistance trendline is currently in the 4450-5 area.

Proving yet again I am a vastly better chartist than trader. It’s a real shame, because I think these three coins look better than ever now!
