S&P500 Expert Lounge Update – August 22, 2018

Good morning everyone,

These are key MA levels:  5EMA 2845, 10DMA 2843,  20DMA 2837, 50DMA 2795, 100DMA 2742, 200DMA 2718

These are key Fib Levels: 2929, 2829, 2821

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Wednesday, August 22, 2018

There are a few items today for the tape to wrestle with as we have Existing Home Sales at 10:00AMEST, the EIA Petroleum Status Report at 10:30AMEST, and the FOMC Minutes at 2:00PMEST.  The technical side of the house saw a new intraday all time high get put in place as the larger structure carves out a  broadening formation via the intermediate pivots.  Should sellers be able to get some momentum going today their first target will be the moving average stack, rising support and the intermediate minor level at 2848.  That area will also be where buyers are going to look to build a new base in an attempt to begin to set fourth on a string of new closing all time highs.  Good luck today!

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Tuesday, August 21, 2018

Data is light today with only the Fed's Redbook release at 8:55AMEST.  Yesterday's session closed out on the last of declining resistance from the primary and intermediate pivot at 2863 and present price is currently set to marginally gap above it and challenge the pivot highs.  Buyers will be targeting the primary minor level at 2872 and new all time highs should they be able to sustain the present price level.  Sellers first order of business is to push price back below the intermediate minor level at 2848 which opens up a clear run in the levels to challenge rising support in the 2820's.  Good luck today!

Good morning everyone,

These are key MA levels:  5EMA 2830, 10DMA 2841,  20DMA 2830, 50DMA 2791, 100DMA 2735, 200DMA 2713

These are key Fib Levels: 2850, 2822

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Friday, August 17, 2018

Data for the last session of the week is moderate with Consumer Sentiment, E commerce Retail Sales and Leading indicators at 10:00AMEST and the Baker Hughes Rig Count coming in at 1:00PMEST.  Even with yesterday's substantial rally, we still have yet to put in an intermediate pivot marker which continues to give buyers a slight advantage.  Buyers will be looking to maintain rising support and the 20DMA in an attempt to overtake the primary pivot at 2863 but will first need to work their way through declining resistance that is currently cutting through the 2850's.  Sellers have some a few things going for them as they have managed to reject price from the upper end of the range we have been in since early July and also the intermediate minor level at 2849.  Their primary target going forward is to get price back below the stack of moving averages and go after the intermediate minor level at 2813 while attempting to sustain price below the newly formed rising supports in the 2810 region.  Good luck today and have a great weekend!

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

Most of today's data will be prior to the session open and consists of Housing Starts, Jobless Claims, and the Philadelphia Fed Business Outlook Survey at 8:30AMEST followed by the EIA Natural Gas Report at 10:30AMEST.  Yesterday saw us bottom early in the session after hitting the primary minor level at 2803 and we are currently set to open up at declining resistance and near the 5DEMA, and the 10DMA  in the lower 2830's.  Sellers will be looking to hold the morning gap up in this vicinity in an attempt to make a run at the intermediate major level at 2793 and the 50DMA.  Good luck today!

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Wednesday, August 15, 2018

There are a few remaining items of note for today's session in the form of Industrial Production at 9:15AMEST, Atlanta Fed Business Inflation Expectations, Business Inventories, and Housing Market index at 10:00AMEST, and the EIIA Petroleum Status Report at 10:30AMEST.  Buyers pushed the market hard yesterday while whipsawing the downtrend line along with breaking out over steep declining resistance, but failed to reclaim the 5DEMA.  The overnight session has seen sellers take back over and we are currently set to open up back down near the pivot lows in the lower 2820's.  We have traversed this area multiple times so moves are going to be fast between the 2840's and 20's which will require a good deal of caution if one is looking to enter a position in this area.  The moving averages haven't supplied much in the way of support or resistance in the past few trading sessions so using the levels will be the best approach for near term analysis.  The targets remain the same as they have been for the past few trading sessions with buyers looking to go after the 2848 intermediate minor level and sellers shooting for the 2813 intermediate minor level.  Good luck today!

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

There are a couple premarket items to be aware of in the form of Import and Export prices at 8:30AMEST, and the Feds Redbook at 8:55AMEST.  As noted yesterday a technical breach of rising support would be important for sellers to accomplish if they wanted to attempt any sort of a larger push to the downside, and that is exactly what we got.  With that came a successful rejection from the underside of rising support along with the 10DMA.  This mornings current price will open around the 10DMA at present but could easily turn into a gift for sellers upon another rejection and run straight down to the intermediate minor level at 2813 at which point we should be on the look out for a new intermediate pivot marker.  Buyers have their work cut out for them if they hope to whipsaw and undo the technical support breach which is going to serve as broadening resistance going forward.  Their best hope at present is to maintain the 20DMA and push price sideways out past the steep declining resistance that is currently cutting through the lower 2830's, and then they can focus on the intermediate minor level at 2848.  Good luck today!

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Monday, August 13, 2018

With no economic releases, today will be strictly technical and a very important one at that as Friday's session saw us bounce off the long standing rising support.  We are still lacking an intermediate pivot marker which will need to be looked out for on any new lows that could potentially arise from today's session.  Below the rising support and 20DMA, sellers have a very clear shot at the 2813 intermediate minor level but more likely a test of the primary minor level at 2802 would be in store.  Buyers will be looking to maintain rising support and build a base on that and the 10DMA to set up a run at the intermediate minor level at 2848 and 5DEMA.  Good luck today!

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Friday, August 10, 2018

Happy Friday everyone!  We have three items for the last trading session of the week that will give traders and investors something to ponder with regards to the economic health of the country.  We have the Consumer Price Index at 8:30AMEST, Baker Hughes Rig Count at 1:00PMEST, and the Treasury Budget at 2:00PMEST.  The shallow declining resistance held yet again yesterday and we closed the session on a very weak note as buyers begin to lock in gains and sellers see an opportunity arising for a reversal trade after hitting broadening resistance.  Given present price levels of the overnight session we are set to start the day off roughly 12 points lower then the close yesterday.  A gap down open will be important if it is below the intermediate minor level at 2848 because that would then serve as solid resistance on any subsequent near term bounce.  Primary targets remain the same for both sides of the tape as sellers look to do some technical damage on a long standing rising support level that currently is located in the 2830 area along with some close proximity moving averages.  Buyers will first need to reclaim the 2848 intermediate minor level and 5DEMA in an attempt to challenge the shallow declining resistance level that is cutting through the 2860 mark if they have any hopes of overtaking the all time highs and primary minor level at 2872.  Good luck today and have a great weekend!

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

There is a decent amount of data today for the market to digest with Jobless Claims and the Producer Price Index at 8:30AMEST followed by Wholesale Trade at 10:00AMEST, and finally the EIA Natural Gas Report at 1030AMEST.  The sideways price action continued through yesterday's session after encountering broadening resistance during the previous day's session and created a very shallow declining resistance which will be the first area to challenge for the buyers in an attempt to attack the all time highs.  Sellers are still looking to first challenge the minor level at 2848 in an effort to get a price retrenchment going which would give them the opportunity to potentially cause some technical damage by breaking rising support which is currently moving through the mid 2820's.  Good luck today and stay out of the chop.

Here is today's market look at the S&P 500 for Wednesday, August 8, 2018

Only one item of note today with the EIA Petroleum Status Report at 10:30AMEST.  After finding the broadening resistance during yesterday's session, price plateaued for the remainder of the day.  Buyers will most likely find this area difficult to overtake on the first attempt given the last time the all time high was seen was back in late January and there are plenty of trapped buyers just looking to get out at even.  The first target for sellers is going to be the previous intermediate pivot and intermediate minor level at 2849, but most likely a test of rising support currently cutting through the 2820's will be the key defining area.  Buyers are still left to challenge the primary minor level and all time highs at 2872.  Good luck today!
