S&P500 Expert Lounge Update – September 20, 2018

Good morning everyone,

These are key MA levels:  5EMA 2902, 10DMA 2891,  20DMA 2890, 50DMA 2851, 100DMA 2790, 200DMA 2747

These are key Fib Levels: 2929, 2855

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Wednesday, September 20, 2018

With Jobless Claims and Philadelphia Fed Business Outlook Survey behind us, the remaining data points for this session consist of Existing Home Sales and Leading Indicators at 10:00AMEST and the EIA Natural Gas Report at 10:30AMEST.  Current price action is markedly positive and we are set to open at, or above the all time highs.  Buyers will be looking to make a run at broadening resistance which is currently cutting through the 2920's and round number psychology prevails over the all time highs.  Sellers, should they be able to slow this rally, will first be targeting the intermediate minor level at 2910 and then rising support and 10 and 20DMA's in the lower 2890's.  Good luck today!

S&P500 Expert Lounge Update – August 30, 2018

Good morning everyone,

These are key MA levels:  5EMA 2887, 10DMA 2871,  20DMA 2855, 50DMA 2708, 100DMA 2758, 200DMA 2726

These are key Fib Levels: 2929, 2859, 2846

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Thursday, August 30, 2018

Data for today is light with the big ticket items coming in before market open with Jobless Claims and Personal Income and Outlays at 8:30AMEST followed by the EIA Natural Gas Report at 10:30AMEST.  Buyers did exactly what they needed to yesterday after basing atop the broadening pattern and then shoving price higher into uncharted territory while tagging the upper bound of the trend channel.  With little else overhead other then the steep broadening resistance and round number psychology, this trend can continue much longer then what most would consider to be 'reasonable'.  Sellers brave enough to try and grab a rocket in hopes of a reentry to earth do have a reasonably decent downside prospect with the next lower primary minor level and primary pivot being all the way back at the 2873 level.  While a savory target, they will need to bust through both the 5DEMA, 10DMA, and rising support to achieve that.  Good luck today!

S&P500 Expert Lounge Update – August 28, 2018

Good morning everyone,

These are key MA levels:  5EMA 2870, 10DMA 2855,  20DMA 2846, 50DMA 2703, 100DMA 2752, 200DMA 2723

These are key Fib Levels: 2929, 2850, 2840

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

Data for the remainder of the day is centered around the 10:00AMEST hour with Consumer Confidence, the Richmond Fed Manufacturing Index, and the State Street Investor Confidence Index.  Yesterday's session saw buyers come out in force and break out to a new closing all time high and above the upper bound of the broadening formation that we've been tracking over the past month.  This is a dangerous spot for sellers if they can't reverse this soon because it lends itself to a breakaway run that could tack on tons of S&P points in a very short time frame.  The only thing buyers have to contend with at this point is steep broadening resistance from the upper trend channel and round number psychology in the form of the 2900 level.  Sellers can put together a decent drop before finding any kind of real support as this run has extended us a good distance from any sort of technical support with the primary minor level back down at 2873 along with the 5DEMA and rising support.  Good luck today!

Good morning everyone,

These are key MA levels:  5EMA 2822, 10DMA 2814,  20DMA 2783, 50DMA 2759, 100DMA 2718, 200DMA 2693

These are key Fib Levels:   2929, 2859, 2867, 2832, 2824

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

Happy Friday everyone!  The big number for today is the GDP at 8:30AMEST  followed by Consumer Sentiment at 10:00AMEST and the Baker Hughes Rig Count at 1:00PMEST.  The technical picture hasn't changed a lot since yesterday but we must note at present that the upper bound of the rising wedge structure has sustained price up to this point which can have wildly bullish implication should we break out over the intermediate and primary pivot.  That would put good odds on a continued run up to the final primary minor level at the all time high.  However, any push to the downside can gain momentum quickly as rising wedge structures have a tendency to retrace themselves very quick upon a failure as buyers bail out and sellers pile in.  Given that, the minimum target for such a move would challenge the intermediate minor level at 2810 along with the 5DEMA and to 10DMA.  Good luck today!

S&P500 Expert Lounge Update – July 9, 2018

Good morning everyone,

These are key MA levels:  5EMA 2730, 10DMA 2726,  20DMA 2750, 50DMA 2723, 100DMA 2706, 200DMA 2673

These are key Fib Levels:   2749, 2772, 2692, 2664

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

There are a couple of items later in the session of note with the TD Ameritrade Investor Movement Index at 12:30PMEST, and Consumer Credit at 3:00PMEST.  The technical breakout last week has led to a sizeable run for buyers and is nearing the completion target for the inverted head and shoulders pattern that built off the intermediate minor level at 2698.  We also have a new intermediate pivot marker which would indicate that some backing and filling will be coming in the near future, but ultimately this leg should see us reach the primary minor level at 2777.  There are a number of rising supports in play at this point which gives the sellers something to shoot for, but being too anxious to step in front of trending price is a fools errand so be patient and pick your spots carefully.  Good luck today!

Good morning everyone,

These are key MA levels:  5EMA 2720, 10DMA 2724,  20DMA 2716, 50DMA 2674, 100DMA 2710, 200DMA 2640

These are key Fib Levels:   2905, 2774, 2759, 2637, 2587

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

Data for today is confined to the front end of the session with the Feds Redbook at 8:55AMEST, PMI Services Index at 9:45AMEST, and the ISM Non-Manufacturing Index and Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey at 10:00AMEST.  Yesterday saw a gap over the primary minor level at 2733 and also above the primary pivot at 2743 ultimately extending marginally into the levels void and up to the psychological 2750 round number zone before pausing on the day to consolidate gains.  With little in the way of levels resistance buyers should have minimal issue pushing price up to the next intermediate minor level at 2766.  Sellers still have the benefit of having both in intermediate and Primary pivot marker present and would be looking for an initial target at rising support near 2740.  With successfully reclaiming that a run back down to the primary minor level and filling yesterday's gap opening around 2730 would be all but assured.  Below that area there is a large stack of moving averages an intermediate minor level and both rising and broadening support all in the 2720 for sellers to contend with.  Good luck today!

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Friday, May 25, 2018

Happy Friday everyone!  We have a few items of interest today, the most important of the group is Durable Goods Orders at 8:30AMEST followed by Consumer Sentiment at 10:00AMEST and rounding out the data docket in the afternoon with the Baker Hughes Rig Count at 1:00PMEST.  Price played a game of ping pong yesterday between primary and intermediate minor levels around 2730 and the 100DMA before ultimately closing out the day sitting atop the 5DEMA and 10DMA.  Overnight price action currently has us around the primary minor level at 2732 and the 8:30AMEST Durable Goods Order has the potential to set the stage for buyers today should it be a positive number and get us over the 2732 hump and into the massive levels void that runs all the way up to near 2770 and the next intermediate minor level.  Sellers still have what seems like an impenetrable rising target in the 100DMA if they are to get anything going for themselves in and around the 2710 level.  Everything between these two areas is just more of a consolidation pattern.  Good luck today and have a great weekend and an extended one for everyone in the U.S. with Monday being a holiday!

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Friday, May 11,  2018

We have a couple items of interest for the last trading day of the week with Consumer Sentiment at 10:00AMEST, and the Baker Hughes Rig Count at 1:00PMEST.  Yesterday's open had us gap declining resistance from the all time high and open up on the 100DMA before extending gains further into the session.  Buyers have now cleared all daily moving average obstacles and only have an intermediate minor level to clear at 2730 before entering an extremely large void of levels all the way up to the 2780 region.  Symmetry for this leg of the move relative to the leg up from the primary pivot low (yellow -8.9) resides at 2759.  This would be the minimum expected target for the present move from a harmonic standpoint.  Sellers have a number of near term areas to target should they be able to gain some footing with the 100DMA at 2708 and rising support coming up through the lower 2700 to 2710 region.  After that is broadening support and the intermediate minor level at 2697.  Any basing in these areas should be considered the buyers attempt to regain control and make a run for the 2759 harmonic price target.  Good luck today and have a great weekend!

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Tuesday, February 20, 2018

An easy start to a shortened trading week with no data points to concern ourselves with.  Last weeks technical picture should put sellers on alert as we broke over the intermediate minor level at 2725, the 50DMA, and declining resistance.  It will be important for sellers shove this back under these levels as quickly as possible lest risk a buyers basing process.  Given the distance between intermediate minor levels a basing process has the potential to open up a quality upside move back into the lower 2800's where as a failure here has the exact opposite effect with the next lower primary minor level being in the mid 2600's.  Be mindful of the round number psychology and rising support at the 2700 level and good luck today!

With the FED press conference after the meeting announcement this afternoon, there isn't much to be expected from the market until then.  2491 and rising support is still there for sellers to aim for and nothing overhead with the exception of broadening resistance and round number psychology.  Data we have Existing Home Sales at 10:00AMEST, EIA Petroleum Status Report at 10:30AMEST, FOMC Meeting Announcement at 2:00PMEST, and Fed Chair Press Conference at 2:30PMEST.  Good luck today!
