Charting near-term technical damage, S&P 500 ventures under key support

Focus: Crude oil confirms bearish trend shift, 10-year yields tags three-month low, Gold extends technical breakout, China pressured amid virus concerns, USO, TNX, GLD, FXI

Technicals columnist

Technically speaking, the major U.S. benchmarks have pulled in sharply from recent record highs, pressured amid the most aggressive selling pressure since October.

Against this backdrop, near-term damage has been inflicted to the S&P 500’s backdrop, though its more important intermediate-term bullish bias is intact.


Before detailing the U.S. markets’ wider view, the S&P 500’s SPX, -0.09%  hourly chart highlights the past two weeks.

As illustrated, the S&P has pulled in sharply from record highs.

Tactically, the breakout point (3,258) pivots to resistance, a level matching Monday’s session high (3,258.8).


This is followed by the 20-day moving average, currently 3,275, and resistance matching the former range bottom (3,280). A retest of this area from underneath is underway early Tuesday.


Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.04%  has extended a pullback from record highs.

Consider that Monday’s close (28,535) registered just three points under the 2019 close (28,538), briefly placing the index in negative year-to-date territory.

From current levels, the 2019 peak (28,701) is followed by the Dow’s former breakout point (28,872), an area also detailed on the daily chart.

(but HOW GOOD is this armchair type commentary?)

The Nemesis of Stock Market Technical Analysis


In recent weeks, there have been numerous technical analysts who have declared that the stock market has topped out and that we should prepare for tough sledding in the months and years ahead.  The problem is that we have been hearing dire warnings from practitioners of chart theory for more than ten years.  Over that span of time, every single bearish analyst has been dead wrong.  Not only didn’t the market collapse as they predicted, the stock market has climbed steadily to new heights.  Periodic short-term corrections along the way have had no serious impact on the uptrend.

Someone throwing darts in the dark would have fared better.  So, what went wrong?  Two factors more than anything else may account for the dismal performance of market technicians: (1) the steady growth of the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet and (2) manipulative high frequency algorithmic trading.

WHAT A JOKE this is!

"House managers used ’overwhelmingly’ and ’prove’ 64 times… Still Want Witnesses

->  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/01/29/live-updates-trump-impeachment-trial-senators-ask-questions/

(Reality: they have an extremely poor and unproven case, despite their "confident" rhetoric. 

This is destroying the credibility for the Rogue team from the house.... and Helping Trump's elections chances.

LAMAR SPEAKS, America Listens !

TRUMP tweet: "Game over!"


Before Alexander’s statement, Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine said late Thursday she would vote to allow witnesses in the impeachment trial, briefly raising Democrats’ hopes for a breakthrough.

But Alexander minutes later said that “there is no need for more evidence to prove something that has already been proven and that does not meet the U.S. Constitution’s high bar for an impeachable offense.”

Collins, Alexander and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska were playing an outsized role in the final hours of debate with pointed questions. Another Republican senator, Mitt Romney of Utah, has made clear he will vote for witnesses.

Murkowksi is expected to announce her decision on Friday, ahead of voting.

How are Stocks Going Up While Earnings Go Down?

The real bubble?  it is in ETF stocks. 

I have just heard a very fascinating interview about this.  I will psot a link here shortly.  The argument in the interview is to "look for stocks below the ETF line" (which may not be included in popular indices for a number of reasons.)  Wky?  because when the MASS SELLING comes, it will be the indices and etfs that get sold.  And the stocks in the index will get pound.  And the ones outside it, may be relatively unscathed.  A very interesting idea, which was well-presented

Why We're in the Biggest Financial Bubble in History (w/ Steve Bregman & Mike Green) >


Stocks like KRO, VHI, DHX & WILD.t, that I have been buying recently are "below the etf line"

For that matter, GCM.t my favorite Gold stock, has also been outside the GDX & GDXJ index

The MENTAL GYMMNASTICS the Dems go thru to maintain their delusions, take my breath away

(Like in this passage - from an AP article, Democrats on edge after 2020 election season's ragged launch )

"For now, he’s relishing what he views as a deeply flawed Democratic field and a political terrain that appears to be shifting in his favor. Though he will face re-election as an impeached president, the congressional investigation and trial has only strengthened his hold on the GOP and done nothing to hurt his overall approval ratin g with voters.

The economy, which can be a bulwark or an anchor for a president, continues to grow. An employment report out Friday showed more 225,000 jobs created in January.

Trump remains reviled by most Democrats, and many in the party believed heading into the election year that disdain for Trump would be a chief motivator for its voters. Yet the Iowa caucuses showed no sign of heightened enthusiasm."

Make some minor changes, and the Truth shines thru:

"(The President faces a) deeply flawed Democratic field and (the) political terrain appears to be shifting in (Trump's) favor. Though (Dems had hoped) he (would) face re-election (labeled) as an impeached president, the congressional investigation and trial (have) only strengthened his hold on the GOP and done nothing to hurt his overall approval ratin g with voters.

The economy, which can be a bulwark or an anchor for a president, continues to grow. An employment report out Friday showed more 225,000 jobs created in January.

Democrats (lack winning policies and a strong candidate.) Many in the party believed heading into the election year that (their) disdain for Trump would be a (sufficient) motivator (to get the vote out). Yet the Iowa caucuses showed no sign of enthusiasm (for Dems or their message)"

The Dems are in big trouble, but are reluctant to accept the Truth, still after many months of distracting themselves and American with failing witchhunts and strained conspiracy theories. 

We need discernment, friends, discernment. Because we can easily see the Lie Stream Media is part of the pointing away from Truth

China stocks have rallied back to the fracture point.

It may be tough to rally further

HK;2823 ... 2-yr / Last: $14.42 - 0.08


It is right at the fracture point now (think of a bone fracture) and it will take some strong buying to get through this level

A BIG DAY for WILD-brain, today maybe? 

After what I call, a "Key Mid-channel bounce" (see explanation, below.)

This could be an ideal inflection point. Because Wildbrain is scheduled to release the Last Quarter's earnings today.

If the Earnings Report is better than expected, this could have a nice positive impact on the stock.

Prior earnings gave a hint of a possible emerging turnaround, and insiders invested Millions, in the recent share placement

So I am optimistic, though recent price action has been weak

WILD ... 1yr: 6mo: 10d/ Last: $1.53 + $0.04, Open: $1.49, High: $1.55, Low: $1.44. vol. 86,900



The Set-up may be right for an important Low to be in place. WILD's stock could be set for a new longterm uptrend.


WILD is Not a Falling knife. That risk is avoided, so long as the Year's Low near $1.35-1.40 holds

Here's why:

+ Chart set-up: See the Down trending channel above, which I have identified with the labels: Upper & Lower.

I usually also draw a middle Line, a Mid-point, which I have identified with the "MId" label above.

Old & useful advice is: "Do not catch a falling knife (see above).... Wait for the stock price to Bounce" (off a support level.)

We have seen a BOUNCE. What we often see in a bottom formation is... First, a Low. like the Low <$1.40 in August.

Then, a bounce to the Top of the channel. or above, like the $2.22 in Oct.  Then, a final retest of the Low, but where

that retest happened near the old low, & at the mid-point of the channel. 

WILD is now a textbox example of the ideal Bottoming Set-up pattern.

+ Fundamentals: WILD has been losing money in recent quarters, but this may be set for a turnaround

+ Committed New Management: New management came and, and raised money, committing about C$30M of their own

funds, and this came at a higher price (C$1.67) than the current one (C$1.53.)

CAUTIONARY COMMENTS  on PH stocks - from a Viber chat
Is the PH Stock Market "Too Small (& too backward) to bother"?

I think you will find the chat excerpts which I have just added to the thread on GEI to be
Interesting and highly relevant to PH based & Global investors.
There are also some long term charts, and some specific stock ideas.
This might be one of the best threads on PH stocks, for people reading here.

The Economic Effects of Coronavirus Are Spreading Says El-Erian

Chinese companies are announcing "they will lay people off, and NOT PAY them"

"Four big themes are being accelerated"

+ Globalization

+ Climate change / + (two more)

El-E. is pushing the Global agenda here, saying that "smart companies" should embrace these.

Really?  I think some smart people may be thinking the opposite.  Like maybe, Travel Less!

Today's Tweet @tafund
Henry Weingarten

Finally the market looks like it is finally pricing in COVID-19 but if it is also pricing in a Sander's Democratic nomination? Then we will see a SPX 3150 Major Support Test!


Henry Weingarten @tafund ·Feb 20

SPX 3300 before 3400?
Have markets finally topped (short term?).
Our first Nasdaq sell zone of 9800-10200 satisfied.
Will gold reach $1650 (as others have forecast) before testing down?  I don't know but wont bet against it.
Note though our plan to short Silver in March/April

7000-7200 SUPPORT?  Let's see if it holds. 

I will hold off in doing any buying, as I await the action today, to see if the key support level will hold, after yesterday's 1,000 point drop in the Dow

SPY was down - 3.32% yesterday,  if PSEI drops the same then: 7187 x0.96685= 6,950, a break! 

But I will waiting, without a strong opinion and simply see what happens

(PH markets are closed on Tuesday for a Holiday.)

So another fall in US stocks today, would be highly likely to bring a break of support when PSEI trade reopens
