Key reversal levels for week of May 26, 2014

Posted by Danny on May 25, 2014

Comments for this week :

* In the weekly key reversal levels for major stock indexes we have momentum (MoM) turning up for the Nasdaq and Nikkei. This means all major markets are trying to push higher again.

* On the daily level markets have turned to bullish mode as well. It is always hard to tell how far a move will carry. Best is to go with the flow and respond when the situation changes again.

* In other world markets the Hong Kong and Russian indexes are turning bullish. This leaves only a few countries with bearish setups.

* Bonds (TLT) are hesitating since they reached their Top1 target at 114.60. Money may start flowing back into stocks and that would weigh on bond prices going forward.

* Gold is not moving at all recently. It remains mildy bullish in our key reversal system,  but it wouldn’t take much to turn it fully bearish. A big move is likely so I am watching the key levels carefully on this one.

* The Euro has gone fully bearish. Needs a weekly close above 1.3829 to get in the bullish camp again.

* Our weekly key reversal levels for the 30 Dow stocks are available here. 25 stocks are bullish this week, up from 24 last week. Above 20 is healthy, see : Keeping an eye on the Dow stocks.

Key reversal levels for week of April 14, 2014

Posted by Danny on April 12, 2014

Comments on the key levels for this week :

* Nice drops in the Nasdaq and S&P 500 this week. This is the correction we have been warning for since the middle of March. US markets are now testing their weekly key reversal levels. Next week we will probably know if the Nasdaq and S&P manage to stay bullish or join the Nikkei and the FTSE100 by going bearish on the weekly level.

* The five major indexes have downside weekly MoM again, so the risk that more markets will turn bearish is considerable right now. On the daily level these markets are in declining mode with downward momentum (MoM). We can expect tradeable bottoms as soon as MoM turns back up for them, especially for the markets that have not fallen below their weekly key reversal levels ( Nasdaq, S&P 500, DAX). Check out my daily key reversal tweets to see when MoM goes back up.

* That being said, I would like to keep things in perspective by pointing to our weekly key reversal levels for other world markets, posted on twitter every weekend. Notice how most world markets remain dark green (strong bullish), with China and Hong Kong also turning green this week. So, this does not look like the start of a global bear market. What seems to be going on is a global portfolio rebalancing. Money that has flown into the US since the start of the year, for various reasons, is now flowing back into international markets. I already mentioned a few months ago that emerging markets looked good in my screens. Meanwhile, since turning bullish in our weekly key levels, markets like India and Indonesia are up 7% in 6 and 9 weeks respectively. Singapore is up 2% in 5 weeks. Even Brazil, Turkey, and South Korea, which turned bullish just last week, have been going up in the face of a sharply declining US market. And Euro-tortured Italy is up nearly 12% since turning bullish 15 weeks ago.

* Bonds and Oil are the strongest markets right now, with gold and $EURUSD continuing to hang in the balance. I continue to watch the Euro carefully, as it is set to chose a direction sooner or later. A weekly close above 1.40 or below 1.3630 is likely to become a game changer for many connected markets.

* Several markets are hitting our Top or Bottom targets, so watch these levels for possible trend reversals. Namely: 3975 for the Nasdaq, 13860 for the Nikkei, 111.80 for bonds (TLT), 104 for crude oil (CL).

* The weekly key reversal levels for the 30 Dow stocks are available here. 20 stocks are bullish this week, down from 23 last week. Above 20 is healthy, see : Keeping an eye on the Dow stocks.
