April 19, 2021
SPY: The index closed at new ATHs a gain on Friday. It remains at the top of the intermediate term channel up 15 of the last 16 days. Since we called the Powell/Yellen "Buy the Dip" in early March the SPY has gained over 12%. But all of the action is in the FAANG stocks and mega-cap stocks. We haven't really had broad market participation. But the trend is your friend and I wouldn't fight against the Fed. Look for markets to continue to trade to new highs.
NDX: The NDX also made a nominal new high on Friday. After making a V bottom, right hand extension pattern in March, the index has surged nearly 16%. Again, expect continuation for markets as money continues to flow into the big names.
DOW: The Dow traded to new ATH as well on Friday. With interest rates at the long end dropping, both growth stocks and value stocks are surging. The Dow is in a strong rising short term channel breaking through the intermediate trend. Look for the Dow to trade to 35000.
DJ-Transportation: Trannies made a nominal new high on Friday but closed down .07%. The Trannies remain in a strong rising channel confirming the new highs made by the SPY and DOW. This is a strong buy signal according to Dow Theory. Trannies are up against the intermediate rising channel line so may vulnerable to a pull back. But with world economies surging and vaccine rollouts hitting new milestones look for Trannies to remain strong.
IWM: The Russell 2000 ETF remains in a consolidation pattern. It is hemmed in by a declining tops line and coming into the apex of a wedge. $218 is the next support level. Markets would be in big trouble it IWM breaks below $208 area. It needs to get over $230 then $235. It does remain, at the moment in a strong rising channel. I think the next move is
up. Look for $250 and $270 as targets.
FAS: The financial sector ETF traded to new 52 week high on Friday closing up 2.3%. The ETF has now doubled (and hit our $100 target) from our swing trade earlier this year. It does remain in a strong rising channel. Look for FAS to trade to $115 and $125.
