*** Status: Market Bullish – Sector Funds ***
The SP-500 basically fell flat this past week near the recent resistance level of ~1345. The general market trading filter I use (SP-500 53 day CCI) is at 82 indicating Market Up which is down from 113 last week. My multiple composite SP-500 indicators on the daily chart remain bullish, but the Blau Ergodic Composite Indicator is heading lower.
The Guppy Plot for the SP-500 is back is still Bullish, but the Fast and Slow moving averages are dropping a bit. The average slopes of both the fast moving and slow moving averages are positive, but have turned down. The ADX components are close to a Bearish cross and Stoch is back in overbought territory.
We’ll see what the next week brings. We don't try to forecast the market here, rather we just monitor the current conditions and react accordingly. I hope you find this blog helpful. If you do, why not leave a comment.
