Stock Market Refusing To Sell At Overbought...

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016 Mar 22, 2016 - 06:21 AM GMT

By: Jack_Steiman

Stock-Markets

The market was overbought on many of the index charts going in to the weekend. One would expect the market to pull back from overbought, especially when the overbought conditions were on both the short-term, sixty-minute charts and the daily charts. When that happens it's usually a short-term top and down we go. Not today. The market is refusing to fall with any force. The bulls are back and back in full force, and dare I say, full froth. Markets are all about emotion as we all know by now. It's not about truth or reality. It's about the flavor of the day, regardless of what may be happening in the real world. The flavor of every day seems to be BUY!!! No matter what, BUY!!!!!


Good news is good news. Bad news is good news. Really bad news is good news. It doesn't matter. It's all good for now. Goldman Sachs (GS) is under investigation for manipulating markets today. The result? Down a drop. Chart is still very decent. In normal times it would be the type of news that could really hurt a stock.

Now, there's basically nothing that can hurt anyone. Caterpillar Inc. (CAT) warned last week. It was down four dollars pre-market, and finished up over a dollar. Nothing can hurt anyone it seems. It's all about emotion. It is what it is. It's all about the fed. It's all about low rates and lots of stimulus from the global central bankers. That's all anything is about. The bulls love fed protection, so again, everything is good news. No end on the horizon on that level as far as I can tell. It'll end someday, but no sign whatsoever at this point. That can drive a bear nuts. I actually feel sorry for them. They have to feel so whipped. They get all the news they would need under normal circumstances, yet they still can't get any love. Hug a bear, if you see one. Send them your condolences. There's nothing more you can do for the poor souls. So today was yet another day of defying logic and anything else you can think of. The bulls win, but there will have to be some selling soon. I think!

The short-term, sixty-minute charts are flashing some small negative divergences. Will they matter? They should. They don't have to. It can be worked off laterally, but we shall see tomorrow. Those divergences are fairly immediate ones, thus, we should get some selling now, but again, in this market who knows. Sixty-minute divergences are not bearish bigger picture, but they can bring a small amount of pain in the immediate future. There's some support at the 2044 gap breakout, and again at 2020. Can we, dare I say, sell 1-2%? Oh no, not 1-2%! Well, maybe we can, and we should, but we shall see. Another gap up wouldn't shock me, but if we do, we'll get even more overbought and create and even bigger negative divergence. But that shouldn't stop the bulls from trying anyway.

Even though the bull/bear spread is only about 20-22%, it's as if it's 45% as the bulls are as frothy as they could ever hope to be. Tomorrow is important. In the real world we should be ready to sell a bit. If we go lateral and work off the divergence, we'll go higher still as the week moves along. 2080 is big resistance. You learn a lot about the future by watching how the markets pulls back its oscillators, along with price once negative divergences exist. The next day or two will tell us a great deal. For now, we play this market for what it is and what it is is bullish. The bears have to prove it's not. Simple as that.
