Stock Market Stalls At Resistance

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010 Jun 18, 2010 - 03:28 AM GMT

By: Anthony_Cherniawski


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. stocks rose as a late-day rally in technology, consumer-staples and industrial companies helped the market overcome an early slump spurred by economic reports that cast doubts on the strength of the recovery.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index increased 0.1 percent to 1,116.01 at 4 p.m. in New York and remained above its 200-day average for a third day. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 24.71 points, or 0.2 percent, to 10,434.17, erasing a drop of as much as 90 points. Both gauges did not turn higher until the final minutes of trading.

Did the BP Oil Well Really Blow Out in February, Instead of April? The Deepwater Horizon blew up on April 20th, and sank a couple of days later. BP has been criticized for failing to report on the seriousness of the blow out for several weeks. However, as a whistleblower previously told 60 Minutes, there was an accident at the rig a month or more prior to the April 20th explosion.As Bloomberg reports today, problems at the well actually started in February: “BP Plc was struggling to seal cracks in its Macondo well as far back as February, more than two months before an explosion killed 11 and spewed oil into the Gulf of Mexico.”

That may explain Goldman’s and the BP executives’ massive sale of shares in March. ICI Reports Another Massive Equity Outflow (ZeroHedge) As we predicted previously, in the past week domestic equity mutual funds experienced another whopper of a redemption. ICI reports that for the week ended June 9, domestic equity mutual funds saw $3.7 billion in outflows, 3 times the prior week's outflow, the sixth sequential outflow in a row, and $27 billion in outflows year to date.

The VIX makes a new low.

-- It seems as if the VIX and the dollar are paired together in their cycles. Both have pivot days due tomorrow. The VIX remains below its intermediate-term Trend Support at 31.18 today. We had been due for a Trading Cycle low last Friday, but it seems that the VIX is off by a full pivot cycle. It may have to do with options expiration, since a decline in equities this week would have caused a lot of damage.

The CBOE Put-Call Ratio for equities ($CPCE) rose to .89 today. The pros remained resumed a neutral position in the $CPCI at .94 at the end of the day. The 10- day average is still 1.44. The NYSE Hi-Lo index closed up 16 points today to 44. The Hi-Lo index remains in bearish territory. Bullish territory begins at 95.

SPY remain stalled above intermediate-term Resistance.

Action: Sell/Short/Inverse -- The SPY stayed above intermediate-term Trend Resistance at 111.55 today. There is strong overhead Model and Fibonacci Resistance at 113.20-113.26, although SPY may not choose to challenge it. All of the common wave relationships have been met in this rally, so technically it is finished. Monday’s pivot day was also the top of a five-wave pattern. What happened since then appears to be a double zig-zag extension. This may have served two purposes. First, to fill the gap left in the May decline, and second, to keep shares elevated through options week.

QQQQ closes above intermediate-term Trend Resistance.

Action: Sell/Short/Inverse -- Today QQQQ made a small gain above its intermediate-term Trend Resistance at 46.25 again. The rally in the last half-hour to close the market on a positive note is something one would expect in a market like this. Notice how we are not getting any more “sneak peeks” into expected earnings due to be released next month. I wonder why?

XLF stalled below Resistance.

Action: Sell/Short/Inverse -- XLF remains stalled just below its intermediate-term Trend Resistance at 14.97. The very weak rally gives many indications that it may be finished here as an irregular correction.

Today’s action left a probable reversal pattern in both the hourly and daily charts. Remember, XLF has been the “lead dog” in the decline.

FXI makes a small pullback.

Action: Buy/Long -- FXI took a rest in its rally as shortterm Trend Support rose to 39.60 today. Short-term Trend Support has made a bullish cross. Although I do not expect a larger correction yet, there is a good probability that shortterm Trend Support will be our safety net for a while, now that the rally is underway. $SSEC has attempted to cross shortterm Trend Resistance at 2573, but has not yet succeeded.

GLD’s attempted a breakout.

Action: Buy/Long -- GLD very nearly succeeded at its attempted break-out today. It remains above its short-term Trend Support at 120.13. It’s funny what a 24-hour time span in the market will do. Two observations come to mind. The first is that the GLD cycle seems to be paired with TLT, its diametric opposite. You almost have to be a manic-depressive to own both. The second item is that GLD could have a nice run once it breaks out again. However, 126 is a strong resistance area. I would like to see what happens when GLD gets there.

USO back-tested its trendline.

Action: Sell/Short/Inverse -- USO eased down from a back-test of its year-old bearish wedge trendline to its intermediate-term Trend Resistance at 34.97, giving credence that the rally is all but over. It just happens that Cycle Resistance is at 35.70 as well. The reversal pattern in the hourly chart got its follow-through today. The wave pattern is also complete.

USO may be entering a prolonged decline that could last up to six weeks, since the next Primary Cycle low is scheduled to come in the last week of July.

TLT emerged above its triangle pattern.

Action: Buy/Long -- TLT has emerged above its triangle pattern and short-term Trend Support at 97.10. The triangle pattern virtually assures new highs with a minimum potential target of 100.70. My model still suggests a high of 105.40. However, the 61.8% retracement level is 104.20. Another major newsletter is calling for an even higher number, but I will stick to my range for now. The message for now is that TLT will make a new high before we must be concerned about a reversal.

UUP prepares for a pivot day.

Action: Buy/Long -- UUP pulled back below intermediate-term Trend Support at 25.11 today. It has also made a reversal pattern using Cycle Support at 24.90 today. The next UUP pivot is tomorrow.

Putting it all together, this suggests that the reversal will happen no later than Monday and the crash scenario that I have been discussing will get underway either on June 21st or June 28th.

Have a great evening!
