And then there's the market leader, the $NDX/QQQ. The on the has pushed to 72, a sign that the Q's are overbought on the . The on the weekly QQQ chart has pushed to 80, which is higher than it reached in October of 2007. And the on the monthly QQQ chart has pushed to 78, the same level the hit on the QQQ monthly chart in October of 2007. Oh, and did I mention that the on the QQQ 60min chart is at 79?
These levels of overboughtness were not sustainable back in 2007, but, hey, what do I know? Maybe this time it really is different and we're headed past the moon and into the depths of deep space. But I doubt it. These readings indicate that just about everyone is in, that the supply of greater fools is very limited.
IMHO, these levels of overboughtness are not sustainable any more now than they were back in 2007. If we don't have a give back period of one degree or another, and soon, lasting a week or maybe even longer, then the markets could be setting up for some kind of blow-off top type event that would lead to a major decline. My analysis of the monthly $SPX charts says we're good to go until at least the end of January 2014 but the markets have got to have a cooling off period between now and the end of December for my monthly analysis to be valid. In other words, a cooling off period now means a green monthly $SPX candle for December and January.
So that's my story and I'm sticking to it. In the week ahead, I'm looking for some kind of give back in all the major indexes and especially the $NDX/QQQ's. Doesn't have to be much, just enough to allow some of the overboughtness to get worked off.
There's a 33% chance that my analysis and market expectations are correct.
GL in the week ahead.
"These RSI readings indicate that just about everyone is in, that the supply of greater fools is very limited.....
We will see some chop here but first indication of a beginning trend reversal will be breaking the smaller shs with neckline around 1800 Then next step on the way will be to take out 1793,71 (EW - wave 1 violation), 3rd step will be breaking the potential bigger shs with neckline around 1776 around. Then we can have some more confidence in the bear wakeup from hibernation (See my draft underneath on a 1 hour SPY chart).
But!!!!! It aint over till the fat lady sings...so until then: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mwm1H0dxAKY
