S&P500 Expert Lounge Update – April 18, 2018

Good morning everyone,

These are key MA levels:  5EMA 2669, 10DMA 2652,  20DMA 2649, 50DMA 2685, 100DMA 2700, 200DMA 2601

These are key Fib Levels:   2905, 2777, 2749

These are key primary and intermediate levels: 2871(primary minor), 2817(intermediate minor), 2779(primary minor), 2765(intermediate minor), 2651(primary minor), 2577(intermediate minor), 2563(intermediate minor)

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Wednesday, April 18, 2018

Data is light today with the EIA Petroleum Status Report at 10:30AMEST and the Feds Beige Book at 2:00PMEST.  Yesterday's price action squirted out of the rising wedging pattern and used the 100DMA as a basing area for today's rally continuation.  As noted in previous updates, a break to the upside is going to have room to run and will most likely find the upper 2700 range before a more meaningful turn can take place.  For the near term though we have a decent amount of support with both the 100 and 50DMAs under price and an intermediate minor level at 2695 splitting the difference.  Once we find the upper 2720's there is potential for a reaction off of the intermediate minor level of 2729 and declining resistance.  Good luck today!

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Monday, April 16, 2018

We have a couple items of note first thing today with Business Inventories and the Housing Market Index at 10:00AMEST.  While the market has broken out of the near term rising wedge that was pointed out last week, it appears to be carving out a larger fractal of the same pattern especially give today's price action.  The outcome is the same even though the timeline has shifted.  A dramatic break out or down will occur when this pattern is satisfied.  Buyers have been reclaiming the 5DEMA on a closing basis so momentum traders are betting on a rally.  We also have an intermediate pivot marker at the most recent pivot high.  Ideally for a full structure we should see another marginal pivot high possibly in a spiking format with a swift reversal if the sellers are to own this.  Otherwise get comfortable on the buy side because this is going to run.  Good luck today!

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Thursday, April 12, 2018

Today's data is front end loaded with Jobless Claims and Import/Export Prices at 8:30AMEST, Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index at 9:45AMEST, and the EIA Natural Gas Report at 10:30AMEST.  The technical side of things has yet to clarify its intentions as price continues to oscillate around the primary minor level at 2650 and buyers have been able to reclaim the 5DMA on a closing basis which gives them a slight advantage of near term momentum.  We've broken down marginally out of yesterday's rising wedge which opens up a potential run down to 2620 and the 10DMA along with the next layer of rising support.  Overhead there is a newly established declining resistance along with the 20DMA in the 2665 to 2670 region that will provide the dividing line between more consolidation and a run at the 100DMA and 2700 level.  Good luck today!

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Wednesday, March 28,  2018

With an inordinate amount of data to hit today things could be a little choppy as we have GDP, International Trade Corporate Profits, Retail Inventories, and Wholesale Inventories at 8:30AMEST, Pending Home Sales at 10:00AMEST, EIA Petroleum Status Report at 10:30AMEST, and Farm Prices at 3:00PMEST.  Price made a solid attempt at an initial base off of the 2650 Primary minor level before encountering the 5DEMA and a slew of momentum sellers that shoved trade all the way back down to near the 200DMA and rising support along with the intermediate minor level at 2595 which ultimately arrested the fall.  The range between 2690 and 2770 is now very thin as a result of price traversing this area numerous times between the levels and price will have a tendency to move through this space swiftly as was witnessed in yesterday's decline, so be cautious when initiating trades in this area because they could go against you quickly.  Anything between yesterday's highs and lows is wrought with danger so it would be best to play the edges of that range.  Good luck today!

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for  Tuesday, March 27,  2018

Data is abound today with the Feds Redbook at 8:55AMEST, Case Shiller Home Price Index at 9:00AMEST, and Consumer Confidence, Richmond Fed Manufacturing Index, and State Street Investor Confidence Index at 10:00AMEST.  The technical side of the house extended the rally off the 200DMA and sliced through the intermediate and primary minor levels mentioned in yesterday's update as a most probable near term target.  The next area of interest will the the 2690's with declining resistance, intermediate minor level, and the 100DMA.  Any basing that takes place on the primary minor level at 2650 should be considered a launch pad for the run towards 2690.  A failure of the 2650 zone opens the door for sellers to make another attack on the 200DMA and the levels in the upper 2500's.  Good luck today!

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for  Monday, March 19, 2018

Today the market is spared from the economist with no releases to speak of.  We are set to open markedly lower this morning down near the 20DMA below 2740.  Reasonably decent support should come into play at the 2727 intermediate minor level and broadening support which price has been sliding down the past few days.  A breach of that most likely takes us back below 2700 and to the next lower intermediate level with the 100DMA.  Overhead we have both a primary and intermediate pivot marker in play along with declining resistance and primary and intermediate levels all clustered just above 2780.  Between the two is a range racing paradise.  Good luck today!

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for  Wednesday, March 14, 2018

The Remaining data for today's session consists of the Atlanta Fed Business Inflation Expectations and Business Inventories at 10:00AMEST, and the EIA Petroleum Status Report at 10:30AMEST.  Yesterday saw us hit the psychological 2800 level before selling off back to the 5DEMA  where momentum traders stepped back into the fray.  With broadening and rising support coupled with the moving averages and intermediate minor level at 2727 should prove to be solid support for buyers.  Below that zone and things get thin at least back down to the intermediate minor level and 100DMA in the upper 2600 zone.  Good luck today!

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for  Friday, March 9, 2018

With present premarket price action, the market looks set to open up above the 50DMA and into declining resistance.  With the basing on the intermediate minor level at 2727 and a lack of new intermediate pivot marker yet to be established, it would be wise to be patient if looking to play from the short side.  There is a good deal of thin air between the intermediate minor level of 2727 and 2790 if trade is sustained above declining resistance.  Good luck today and have a great weekend!

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Wednesday, March 7, 2018

The overnight price action was a sellers delight with price dropping over 40 points in less than an hours time.  The implications on the cash chart are going to have us breaking the rising support after multiple failed attempts at the intermediate minor level at 2727.  We are currently set to open between the 5DEMA and the 20DMA and have a intermediate minor level just underneath at 2695.  We'll need to look for some confirmation by way of an intermediate pivot marker upon open at yestarday's highs.  Should sellers be able to push price below rising support and the 100DMA at 2670 then a much more severe decline becomes a high probability.  Good luck today!

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Monday, March 5, 2018

Data is light today to start out the trading week as we have PMI Services Index at 9:45AMEST, ISM Non-Manufacturing Index at 10:00AMEST, and the TD Ameritrade Investor Movement Index at 12:30AMEST.  As was to be expected leading into this mornings update, buyers stepped in at the primary minor level of 2651 and put a floor under the market and would up closing it 40 points higher at the intermediate minor level just under the psychological 2700 level.  The structure off the lows is a clear inverted head and shoulders pattern with the two shoulders bouncing off the 100DMA and targets the 5DEMA, 50DMA, and 10DMA stack along with the intermediate minor level in the 2720 to 2730 zone.  That will be an area of high interest for both buyers and sellers.  Given the intermediate pivot markers, the present structure down from the all time highs is converging into a compression pattern, and given the size, should have a very impressive resolution regardless of the direction of the break.  Good luck today!
