  • Numerous Pivots Kept The Market Stable On Tuesday.  0 comments
    Apr 8, 2014 6:11 PM | about stocks: TLT, GLD, XLE, DIA, QQQ, SPY

    The Dow Industrial Average was helped by its semiannual pivot at 16245. The S&P 500 returned to its quarterly pivot at 1853.5. The Nasdaq stayed above its quarterly value level at 4039. The Dow Transportation Average stayed above its quarterly value level at 7407. The Russell 2000 held its semiannual value levels at 1133.29 and 1130.79.

    All five of the major equity averages still have negative weekly chart profiles and are not yet oversold.

    We still have semiannual value levels at 3930 and 3920 on the Nasdaq with semiannual pivots at 16245 Dow Industrials, 1797.3 and 1764.4 S&P 500, 7376 and 7245 Dow Transports, and 1133.29 and 1130.79 on the Russell 2000, and the semiannual risky level at 16860 Dow Industrials. All pivots mentioned have been crossed at least once so far in 2014.

    To confirm a market top there needs to be simultaneous weekly closes below the five-week modified moving averages at 16256 Dow Industrials, 1850.0 S&P 500, 4203 Nasdaq, 7450 Dow Transports and 1165.28 Russell 2000. Only the Nasdaq and Russell have negative weekly charts.

    If a stock market top is confirmed the risk is to the 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.

    The yield on the US Treasury 30-Year bond (3.540%) is below its 21-day, 50-day and 200-day SMAs at 3.602%, 3.635% and 3.719%. The weekly chart shows the bond yield between its five-week MMA at 3.631% and its 200-week SMA at 3.532%.

    Comex Gold ($1309.1) is below its 21-day SMA at $1322.5 and between the "golden cross" of the 50-day and 200-day SMAs at $1310.8 and $1296.7. The weekly chart is negative with the five-week MMA at $1310.8 and the 200-week SMA at $1494.3. The golden cross is thus in a tug-of-war with the negative weekly chart.
