  • The Nasdaq And Russell 2000 Remain On The Bear Side Of A Tug-Of-War.

    The Nasdaq and Russell 2000 are below their five-week modified moving averages at 4149 and 1151.19 on the bear side of the bull vs. bear tug-of-war. Dow Industrials, S&P 500 and Dow Transports are on the bull side of their five-week MMAs at 16250, 1847.7 and 7473.

  • The Dow Industrial Average Is Still Below Its Quarterly Pivot At 16462

    The major averages continue to straddle their five-week modified moving averages at 16250 Dow Industrials, 1847.5 S&P 500, 4149 Nasdaq, 7473 Dow Transports and 1151.19 Russell 2000. The weekly charts are negative for the Nasdaq and Russell 2000, neutral for the others.

    To confirm a significant market top the major averages need to have weekly closes below semiannual pivots and value levels at 1764.4 S&P 500, 3920 Nasdaq and 7245 Dow Transports.

    Favoring the bulls near term is the fact that Dow Industrials is above its semiannual pivot at 16245 with the Russell 2000 above its semiannual pivot at 1133.29. The next key level of pivots: my quarterly pivot at 16462 Dow Industrials, a monthly risky level at 1895.6 S&P 500 and a quarterly pivot at 1169.22 Russell 2000.

    Other key levels that are causing choppy trading are; a monthly pivot at 16297 Dow Industrials, a quarterly pivot at 1853.5 S&P 500, a quarterly pivot at 4039 Nasdaq, a quarterly pivot at 7407 Dow Transports, and a monthly risky level at 1211.52 Russell 2000.

    The downside risk in 2014 is to annual value levels at 14835 and 13467 Dow Industrials, 1539.1 and 1442.1 S&P 500, 3471 and 3063 Nasdaq, 6249 and 5935 on Dow Transports and 966.72 and 879.39 on Russell 2000.
