Indices to Watch December 20th, 2021
SPX: On Thursday the stock opened above the triple top at 4715 but sold off most of the day. On Friday it had downside follow-through ending down 1% on the day. It did bounce off the 50 day m.a. and closed at 4620. But the index could be putting in a double top here and a sell off could ensue. A break below 4545 and we may have a change in direction for markets.
NDX: Big reversal day on Thursday for the NDX and downside follow through on Friday. It stayed above support at 15700. It index is hemmed in by a declining tops line. It appears to have made a head and sholders pattern but needs a break below 15700 to confirm it. For now, the index does remain in a bullish trend.
DJIA: The Dow looked like it put in a V bottom right hand extension pattern (bullish). But it sold off sharply on Friday trading below support at 35500. Dow below 33700 probably means a change in direction for markets. For now the chart is neutral.
DJTA: The Trannies are coming into the apex of a wedge pattern. It traded below key support at 16000 and the 50 day m.a. If it fails to hold 15700 in conjunction with a break down of SPX and DJIA then that would confirm a sell signal for markets.
IWM: At the beginning of November, the IWM broke out of a 9 month consolidation pattern trading to $244.46. But it turned out to be a fake out break out as the IWM has not sold off to key support at $211 and $208. A break below $208 and I think that will signal a change in direction for markets.
FAS: The financial sector ETF does remain in a rising channel but is at key support at $123.65. A break below that and $113 and $100 would be downside targets. Failure at $100 I think signals a change in direction for markets.
LABU: The biotech sector remains under tremendous pressure. On Friday the ETF did bounce off support at $33 and was up 15.4% on the day. But I think it is just a short squeeze. The chart remains bearish. Over $41 with momentum, and I think LABU trades to $48 and $51. But if the other markets continue to sell off, LABU will not be able to withstand the pressure.
GUSH: Even though the commodity remains strong, GUSH continues to sell off with the general markets. It has key support at $79. Below that level and $67 and $55 are next areas of support. The 20 day ma.a average has crossed down through the 50. Chart is bearish.
NUGT: The price of gold remains strong yet NUGT pulled back sharply with markets. It double bottomed at $41. With inflation remaining strong gold prices should remain up. So it will be a struggle between a strong commodity and a weak market. It is now in a range between $41 and $53.
Technical Indicators: The indicators are bearish. Only 22% of stocks are above their 40 day m.a. The McClellan Oscillator is at -67. There is no breadth to the market and bias is to the downside. VIX remains neutral at 21.57. Below $20 would be bullish. Over $25 bearish.
