Market continues to trade sideways

Swing Trading signals both BULLISH

Oil has some resistance to capture

My complete blog post is open to the public each weekend. If you like the post, you can sign up for a FREE subscription to view this analysis daily at the bottom my blog post! To concentrate my efforts on development, posting to this blog will only be done twice weekly, each Wednesday and for the Weekend.

After 85 trading days, the SPX 20 dma has slipped below its 50 dma for the 4th day in a row.

My swing trading signals have been BULLISH since 8/25 and 8/29 respectively. My proprietary Technicals Model was higher for the 8th day in a row, with a positive divergence at 9/1's peak vs. SPX. It was an odd previous bottom as the Model did not positively diverge as it usually does in advance. My statistically driven Volatility Model continues to decrease in volatility significantly, with recent trading below 1% of volatility since 1990.

8/29's SPX Hindenburg Omen ended up being a bottom reversal variety. Many HO in June and July leading up to the All Time High, then 5 more during the decline in mid August. None since then.

SPX has pulled back through several key support levels and now is wavering around the 2464 support/resistance line. With only 2 minor positive divergences on the SPX hourly chart at the lows on 9/5, a lower low is likely before sustained bullish activity, but is not required.

VIX generated its hourly MACD BUY signal Friday, though a negative divergence showed up on the ADX +DI. Drilling down to the 15-min chart, negative divergences formed at today's highs. Higher VIX is likely in the short term.

Market Internals, participation and breadth indicators, many of them in positive territory, yet are well off peaks from earlier in the year. SPX A-D line in an exception, making a new All Time High on 9/8, obviously above its 20 dma which is now ascending. SPX McClellan made its 7th positive reading in a row.

The Yield Curve is flattening which continues to support the notion of a weak economy. This as TLT:TIP shows deflation fears have been climbing since Spring.

Oil dumped Friday, and likely wont succeed a challenge of both its 200 dma and upper Bollinger Band for any significant time. Oil performed terribly during the tropical system in the Gulf which shuttered rigs (If Harvey couldn't boost prices an east coast Irma shouldn't help much either), and all Spring/Summer, last peaking at the beginning of the year. In an interesting development today, HYG:IEF made a lower low Friday, which only served to strengthen significant positive divergences in doing so. This suggests that Risk-On should return soon.

I want you to know I am quite serious about developing my site the right way, I am in this for the long haul, and I will improve my services at every opportunity I have. Traders this next part is for you! I recently uploaded a significant upgrade to the Trading Platform (see top menu of my site for the link). I offer 3 diverse models for the SPX AND the consensus of all 3 models, at time-periods of 1 min/5 min/10 min/15 min/30 min/1 hr/2 hr/4 hr and soon longer periods. No matter how frequently you like to trade, I will have you covered. I even have the ETF GLD (GOLD) available at the 1 min timeframe. These timeframes, available trading vehicles (why not oil, why not china etf?), and models will continue to expand over time! If you are an active trader, you will view my site as something more than just a daily analysis of the markets. I want traders to live here during market hours! I want us all to make money!
