Last week’s review of the macro market indicators suggested, heading into next week there was continued weakness. Gold ($GLD) and Crude Oil ($USO) looked better to the downside while the US Dollar Index ($UUP) seemed to be turning up and US Treasuries ($TLT) were biased lower within the Uptrend. The Shanghai Composite ($SSEC) and Emerging Markets ($EEM) were poised to continue consolidation, Chinese markets within the downtrend. Volatility ($VIX) looked to remain subdued keeping the bias higher for the equity index ETF’s $SPY, $IWM and $QQQ, despite the Dollar Index and Treasuries undercutting it. The Indexes themselves all looked biased to the downside with a chance of consolidation within the longer term uptrends.
The election was the pivot point for the week. It played out with Gold ripping higher while Crude Oil jumped only to fall back at resistance. The US Dollar broke higher and Treasuries followed along after the election. The Shanghai Composite rolled back lower while Emerging Markets remained in their recent range. Volatility remained subdued but an uptrend is building. The Equity Index ETF’s SPY, IWM and QQQ held early in the week but dumped hard after the election results. What does this mean for the coming week? Lets look at some charts.
The SPY continued lower out of a bear flag once the election results were known. The week ended with an Inverted Hammer, a possible reversal, which would be a shallow 6% correction if it confirms higher. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is trending lower and in bearish territory near being technically oversold. The Moving Average Convergence Divergence indicator (MACD) is negative and continues to grow, also supporting more downside and the increasing volume on the selloff reinforces the trend lower. Moving out to the weekly chart shows a crack of the rising uptrend. The RSI on this timeframe is trending lower as well with a negative MACD, both supporting more downside. There is support lower at 137.30 and 135.10 followed by 132.40. It will take a move under 125.81 to turn bearish long term. Resistance higher is found at 138.60 and 140.10 followed by 142 and 144.44. Over that and the repair of the upward bias begins. Continued Short Term Downward Bias in the Uptrend.
As we shift focus from the election to the fiscal cliff the market is revolting. Look for Gold to continue in its uptrend while Crude Oil consolidates with a bias lower. The US Dollar Index and US Treasuries are set to move higher. The Shanghai Composite and Emerging Markets look to consolidate, with the Shanghai Composite doing so in a downtrend. Volatility looks to remain low but slowly trending higher making a hard way for the equity index ETF’s SPY, IWM and QQQ, which all look better to the downside, despite some signs of possible reversals. Use this information as you prepare for the coming week and trade’m well.
